Web minding service - looking after your website
My Web Minder offers a complete website minding service where we look after the routine things so you don't have to.
You can take out as many of the following services as you like.
- Backup and restore service - gives you the peace of mind that your site will be able to be restored in the event of a disaster. This applies to both the website files and any databases used. We recommend the monthly backup service but if your site is updated more regularly then perhaps a weekly or daily service would be better. Taking on the backup service also covers the recovery of the website files and databases to the previous backup (or an earlier one up to a year earlier). We take care of the point in time recovery so you don't have to deal with the technical details.
- Website vulnerability monitoring - is a service that flags up changes to website files. This will detect any files that have been altered and provide early warning against hackers or viruses. Sometimes you website might look like its unaffected after an attack but there are many ways a hacker can use your website or your websites hosting environment so it's a good idea to have this warning system in place. The main way that files are manipulated is via FTP but FTP access can be locked, which is the default on all My Web Minder hosting packages.
- Registration and renewal service - applies to domain names, website hosting and secure certificates. We can auto-renew any of those for you so you don't have to keep an eye on the expiry dates, which are quite often varied throughout the year.
- Annual maintenance service - includes patching, updates and upgrades wherever necessary. These depend on the software and environment you use; patching is required on servers, updates are usually applied to software packages and are trivial whereas upgrades can apply to software or hardware. Examples might be that you have a dedicated server and want CPanel to be kept up-to-date as well as any security patching on Apache, PHP or MySQL or an update agreement on WordPress to keep it up-to-date for security reasons (minor version changes) but might exclude or include upgrades (major version changes).
Payments are made annually in advance. Just contact us with your requirements and we'll give you a free no obligation quote.
