Maintenance and Support for WordPress Powered Websites

At DSP Designworks we believe that designing and developing your web presence is only the first part of the process. The second important task is protection of your investment. WordPress is just like any software used on desktops, tablets, or phones. It needs to be regularly updated for functional and security updates. If users fail to do so, they open themselves up to broken functionality, malware, and Google warnings of security issues.

It is critical to ensure that your site is protected from those who may try to exploit vulnerabilities found in the software used on your site. Although there is no way to guarantee your site won’t ever get hacked, keeping your site up to date with the latest security releases of WordPress core, theme and plugin files is key in preventing an attack on your site.

WordPress maintenance contracts are great for providing peace of mind and security for your website while also protecting your online marketing efforts. To ensure all of these necessary tasks are taken care of, DSP Designworks provides the following maintenance support packages:
