WordPress updates done daily

We update your plugins, theme, and WordPress core on a daily basis. As soon as a new update is available and safe to perform, we get it done. If there's an issue with the latest version, we'll revert back to the previous version until a fix is available.

Out-of-date plugins and themes are the leading cause of WordPress website problems. They lead to malfunctions, errors, malware, and hacking. Our WordPress maintenance service ensures that your site is up-to-date, functioning properly, and free of vulnerabilities.

Security & malware removal

Get full website security with our WordPress maintenance service. We guard your WordPress website from hackers and malware. Daily malware scans and 24/7 monitoring let us know if your site has issues or goes offline so we can begin resolving the problem immediately.

Beyond malware removal and monitoring, we also implement a firewall to stop malicious actors. We'll ban hackers and bots from even viewing your site once suspicious activity is detected. When threats occur or things go wrong, we jump into action for you.

Daily website backups

Our daily backups are like website insurance. You have insurance for everything else - we'll provide it for your website. We make daily backups of your website and store them on our secure  servers. If something happens to your website, your personal site backups, or even your hosting server itself, we have you covered.

Our servers store your backups safely away from your hosting server (where mistakes and hacks happen). So if your hosting server goes down, your backups won't go down with it. Our backups won't slow down your website or take up space on your server. We take care of the storage for you. 

Monthly website reports

Get an easy-to-read report on our daily activities. Every month, we'll email a professional report with a summary of all the daily tasks we performed on your website. You'll get a bird's eye view on updates, security, backups, website uptime and more.

See what plugins were updated and when; get the same for your theme and WordPress versions. View the latest security summary along with any malware that was found and removed. Easily see how many daily backups we have on file. Check out how many malicious login attempts we blocked. And if your website went down at any point, see how long it was offline before we got it back up.

Common Questions

Yes. We update WordPress plugins for you on a daily basis. The same goes for your theme and WordPress core version.

If you hate updating plugins, are afraid to perform updates, or have had your site crash, you're not alone. Many people come to us simply for WordPress update services. If an issue arises, we can fix it or revert to the prior version until it's safe to update again. We also make daily backups of your website for further redundancy.

No, we don't recommend enabling auto-updates for WordPress at either the website or hosting level. Not all updates are compatible or tested with your current versions of plugins, themes or WordPress itself. Letting your plugins or theme auto-update can cause your site to crash or have errors.

While we try to perform plugin updates as soon as they are available, there are some plugins we wait on given the contents included in the update, history of update compatibility, and other factors. This is one of the reasons we run daily backups of your website - plugin updates don't always go accordingly to plan. When you have SetMySite's WordPress maintenance service, you don't need to worry about compatibility errors because we look for those ahead of time, prior to updating your software. And if a compatibility issue is found, we can roll back your software, or we can fall back on one of our daily backups if needed.

Our WordPress maintenance service includes daily tasks to keep your website healthy, functioning, and secure. A quick summary of maintenance and security tasks include:

Yes. We perform WordPress malware removal and scan for it on a daily basis. Our daily malware scans can detect complex malware and backdoor issues too. When malware is found, we quarantine and remove it for you.

If your malware issues are repetitive, we may recommend changing passwords, removing unnecessary site software, or taking other actions to further protect your site from malicious hackers and viruses.

For every good plan, there's a backup plan. Whether you make a mistake, get hacked, or experience malware, we have you covered.

We perform and store up to 90 days of daily website backups on our secure servers. This means our backups won't take up space on your hosting server. It also means our backups won't be available to any hackers should they break into your website or into your hosting server.

If we need to restore a backup of your website, we have multiple days to choose from and can do so quickly.

Yes, we can help improve website speed. If you feel your website is slow or sluggish, you can send us a request to review your site speed. There are relatively simple things we can do to improve website speed. We can also dig deeper, perform more exhaustive website tune-ups, and make recommendations based on your unique situation.

Yes, WordPress updates are extremely important. Out-of-date WordPress plugins and themes are the leading cause of malware, viruses, and hacking. Because of this, we update your plugins, theme, and WordPress core as soon as the latest versions are released and safe to implement.

Updates often include security patches to address the latest threats or oversights. Keeping your plugins, themes, and WordPress version up to date is crucial for the health and safety of your site.

WordPress itself also recommends running the latest versions. Read more about WordPress updates here

WordPress updates can cause your site to malfunction. Sometimes the latest versions of your plugins, themes, and WordPress core aren't fully compatible with each other. When this happens, your site can experience an error, go down or break.

We have different ways to fix your WordPress website if it experiences any issues after updates are performed. We can modify the coding or root source files to correct the issue. We can also revert back to a previous version of your plugin or theme until compatibility has been resolved. We also take a daily backup of your website in case the best approach is to restore back to a previous version of the site, prior to the update.

Whatever the case or cause, we can get your website working again if it runs into issues with updates.
