À la carte Maintenance

Whether we built your website or not, we'd love to take on your website maintenance!

We offer two types of services for you to choose:

  1. Monthly Maintenance Service
  2. One-time Backup

Monthly Maintenance Service

Our monthly maintenance service options include:

  • Software Updates
  • Website Security
  • Website Backups
  • Website Caching
  • Email Service Provider (ESP)
  • 1-hour of Website Content Updates

Software Updates

Every single WordPress website uses software (core, plugins) and themes. Many of these items are in a constant state of flux. New features are added. Bugs are fixed. Security holes are plugged.

Sign up, for our monthly maintenance service and we'll keep our eye on this situation every single day. You can opt in to have us update your software and themes automatically. If you elect to update these items yourself, we'll leave them to you.

Website Security

We implement website security using a number of practices and policies, including:

  • Blacklists
  • Whitelists
  • 404 Detection
  • Ban Lists
  • Local Brute Force Protection
  • Network Brute Force Protection
  • Strong Passwords
  • Refusal of Compromised Passwords
  • Malware Scanning

WordPress websites are assaulted every day. We make every effort to avoid, limit, mitigate, and stop these assaults.

Website Backups

Backing up your website, in case of bad edits and/or internal or external hacking is one of the most important things you can do to safeguard your website.

Similar to an insurance policy, it's always better to have a good backup of your website and not need it, than to need a good backup and not have it.

Website Caching

Want to speed up your website? We use the award winning WP Rocket on all our websites — and now, so can you. ‘Nuff said.

Seriously, just installing this plugin will make your website faster. Of course, nothing can compensate for a poorly designed website, but WP Rocket will certainly make your website as fast as is possible. And if we find that your website could benefit from some tweaking, we'll let you know!

Email Service Provider (ESP)

You know you need subscribers. You know the sooner you start collecting email address, the better. Too many choices and little help in implementing a specific solution can make the task seem daunting.

Let us do it all for you while you're getting started (for up to 1,000 subscribers)!

  • Forms
  • Automations
  • Sequences
  • Broadcasts

We can do it all.

What happens if you get more than 1,000 subscribers? One of two things: we'll either help you get your own account with our ESP, or you can continue to work with us for an additional monthly fee — it's up to you.

1-hour of Website Content Updates

In today's fast-paced world — a lot can get done in an hour. You can watch the latest episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County. Or you can read 10 chapters of a Spenser novel. Or you can do what you do for your clients — and earn some money!

If you're one of the SeaPort Web Design, LLC gurus — you can get a whole lot of web changes done! Sign up for monthly content updates service and you'll get our absolute lowest hourly rate.

What happens if you go over your 1-hour allotment? Simple, we'll send you an estimate for the work you're asking us to do. If you approve the estimate, we'll send you an invoice. Once the invoice is paid (you can pay it online with a credit card) we'll get right to work. If you decide you don't want to go forward with the estimate, we can push off the work until next month when you'll get another 1-hour of website content updates with your subscription.

One-time Backup

Don't need or want all that monthly stuff? Just want a one-time backup of  your website?

We'll do it for as little as $29 and keep your backup offline for as long as a year! Just choose your one-time backup options and we'll make it happen!
