Don't let your WordPress Website fall out of date

Plugin vulnerabilities are exploited on millions of sites each month.

The outdated theme, WP, and plugin versions are the single biggest reason for the attack.

We know launching a new website is a lot of work but it's not over yet. If you don't monitor your site, audit for on-page SEO & web vitals, and update it on a regular basis, your website will easily fall out of date, out of sync, and out of line with your business goals.

How do we get started?

Our maintenance package and pricing assume your site is fairly healthy to start though clients often reach out to us about maintenance because something has gone wrong with their site.

To help us provide the best solution, we'll first have a discovery call with you so we can get to understand your needs, goals and pain points better. From there we can recommend solutions and help you pick a maintenance plan that's right for you.

To get started, simply schedule a consultation here and we'll connect via Zoom to review your needs: https://www.northstardesign.studio/get-started/

Why Choose Us For Monthly Website Maintenance?

We are the best WordPress maintenance service in the town. Our experts are always there to help you in any challenging situations. 

1. Experience and Expertise
We have helped many businesses maintain a successful online presence. Our knowledge and expertise help businesses attract better clients, and more of them!

2. Customized Solutions
We understand that no two websites are alike. Your website is as unique as your business is. We first take time to understand your goals and objectives to help improve your client's customer journey to improve close rates.

3. Dedicated Team
Our team stands out because of our commitment to providing nothing but the best. We never compromise on quality and keep ourselves equipped with the latest techniques and technologies. We consider your site as our own and ensure that your site remains fresh, and performs well.


Typically we'll need access to your website related accounts (hosting, domain, /wp-admin login) as well as your Analytics accounts (google Analytics, Google Search Console, Bing Webmaster Tools, Google Business Page).

Most platforms allow you to add users and assign specific roles/permissions (ex: Admin, Editor, Owner).

Typically we'll ask that you add us as an Administrator to needed accounts. If you're unsure about how to access or provide access to those accounts, we can help walk you through that as needed.

The theme, Plugin and WP Core Updates

Whenever a new WordPress website is activated, minor versions of core updates are set to automatically update for you. However, major versions of WordPress core updates, plugins and themes are not updated automatically. During our WordPress website maintenance, we check for updates to WordPress core, themes and plugins, and software updates every month to ensure that your website is updated and better secured. 

Sometimes, an update is incompatible with one of the plugins which can effect functions on the website and its security. We manage compatibility issues so that each of the installed updates adds to the functionality of your website instead of breaking it. 

Our web maintenance also involves checking for inactive, unused, and poorly coded plugins that may be incompatible with your core tech stack. We'll manage related clean-up and offer suggestions as needed.

Advanced Security (Firewall and Malware Scan)

Our website maintenance plan includes thoroughly scanning every file and folder on your website for malware, trojans, and viruses. This way we could remove malware and viruses. We also monitor new, changed and suspicious files. 

At NSDS, we routinely perform ongoing Firewall maintenance and management, including the updating and patching of software and the logging of changes to policies or rules. This includes monitoring rules and configurations, analyzing logs and alerts, and monitoring compliance. 

Site Protection by iThemes Security (Premium)

A lot of activity is happening on your website every day. Many of these are related to your website security and play a vital role to keep your site secure. Our web maintenance service includes installing an agency license for iTheme Security Pro, a premium security plugin that takes the guesswork out of WordPress security.

Some of the benefits of the iTheme Security Pro plugin are: 

  • It stops automated attacks 
  • Monitors suspicious activity 
  • Strengthens user credentials 
  • Scans for vulnerable themes and plugins to apply updates 
  • Blocks bad bots and reduces spam

Backups and Restoration of Backups

If something goes wrong with technology, your website can become slightly broken, or irreparably broken. Having a backup can help in restoring the previous version of your site. 

Creating backups is a process of storing copies of data that can protect against data loss. Recovery from a backup involves restoring the data to the original location, or to an alternate location where it can be used in place of the lost or damaged data. 

At NSDS, our website maintenance service involves creating reliable backups, and fast recovery, if required, to ensure the continuity and resilience of your business.  

Monthly Updates

Our Basic Monthly Maintenance includes 30 minutes per month for fixes and bugs related to plugin updates which is often enough to handle what comes up plus an additional 30 minutes for small content edits you may need helping to keep your site fresh and relevant for prospects. Our monthly updates enhance user satisfaction, improve SEO and boost user experience.
