Ongoing Assistance, Support & Security After Website Launch
Often website run smoothly, but issues and problems do occur. When this happens and you don’t know how to fix it or don’t have the time, your support team will resolve these quickly because they know what to do.
The get the best from your website it needs your regular attention for management and maintenance.
The ultimate responsibility for the maintenance and management of your website rests with you and your business. A support plan is designed to assist you with this, provide some helpful tools and ensure you are able to give the best experience for your users and your business.
As soon as you sign up, your website is added to the support schedule.
The very first thing that happens is we take a full backup and store it securely off the server. This is done just in case there is a problem requiring a point to roll back to.
There are regular tasks we do that happen in the background like backups, optimisations, malware monitoring, uptime tracking.
Other tasks you can submit a support request for.
If you notice an issue or need assistance simple lodge a support request with the form on the support page or send an email. These will be queued in the support system immediately and usually resolved within a business day.
It depends on the task. Minor changes are often completed within 4- 8 hours. Larger issues can take up to a day. The aim is always to provide same day turnaround.
The team will communicate with you by email. When you receive an email, please respond in a timely manner.
If a discussion is required, you will receive an email with a link to book a time.
If you do not respond, we may not be able to complete the work required quickly or at all.
N.B. Not responding to communication invalidates any guarantee or refunds.
We guarantee to fix and resolve all issues, to 100% satisfaction. If you are not happy that the issue is resolved, our team will go out of their way to ensure it is resolved.
The monthly subscription is not refundable because maintenance, updates and backups occur on a daily schedule.
Of course! You can upgrade, downgrade, change and cancel your plan at any time. You’re not tied to a long term contract. For some websites a recommended minimum plan my be required for the level of assistance and work needed. If that is the case, you will be notified when you sign up.
Note: If you subscribed to a WordPress Website Design product you can either downgrade your support plan at the end of 24 months or you can pay out the remaining term of the plan on a pro-rata basis and downgrade at the end of the current month.
Of course, we don’t want you to leave but you have the option to terminate at time. Simply let us know and your service will stop at the end of the current month.
Once you select and pay for your plan, you will provide login details in a secure form for WordPress and your Web Host.
We will also perform an initial site audit to identify any issues needing attention immediately, and make recommendations on anything we find.
Hosting is a critical contributing factor for speed and performance of a website. If your host is not performing well we are able to recommend suitable website hosts that are fast, reliable and affordable.
- If your website is on a shared host we would recommend a host where your website is the only one on the server.
- We would also recommend not hosting email on the same server as your website and suggest Google Workspace as a robust email host.
We can help with moving your website and email to better alternatives to improve performance, reliability and security.
At this stage these plans are for WordPress Websites.
Other platforms like Wix, SquareSpace, Weebly, Kajabi, ClickFunnels, etc are not supported.
This may change in the future if there is sufficient demand.
However, you are welcome to submit a one-off support request for any of these platforms and we will let you know if we can help at our casual rates or recommend you to a specialist in that platform.
Often web hosting companies back up the server your website is hosted on, but these should not be relied upon.
If the whole web server is hacked, then it can be difficult to get a clean backup of just your own website, as they try to recover the server. This can sometimes take days, and sometimes has taken weeks.
If a web server goes down due to malware or an attack, then the backups saved to the server may also be inaccessible and compromised.
Some web hosts charge additional fees to retrieve a copy of a stored backup.
The safest way to back up is to a secure remote cloud storage facility like we offer.
These backups can be restored often in a matter of minutes, and can be deployed to another web host quickly in the event of catastrophic web server failure (which happens more often that you may hear about).
If you need work that are outside what these support plans cover, you can submit a special support request.
We will be in touch to discuss the work and provide you with a fixed price quote and estimated timeframe.

Outstanding!!I recently had a business consultation with Nik Cree from SmashGo and I cannot recommend him more highly. He first sought to understand my business challenges before offering any information, which was very refreshing. He then provided me with insightful information of a technical nature. He also generously offered several of his key contacts to help support me further, which have already proved fruitful and provided further opportunities for me to connect with the right people.
