For security reasons, no one other than approved parties may request information or support service. The account holder is the default approved party, but you can also assign authorized users to your account. This can be done by logging in to your Client Portal and submitting a Support Ticket with the name and email address for additional authorized users.
With our Managed WordPress Hosting and Support, your monthly hours can also be used for ad hoc website development. These types of projects may include Plugin installation and configuration, Plugin and Theme modifications, Post/Page creation, etc. A project time estimate and schedule will be given prior to work beginning and will be applied toward the monthly hour allotment.
Normal weekly and monthly website maintenance including WordPress core updates, Plugin updates and Theme updates, will be scheduled and performed after hours to reduce interruption. Should an update break the website, it will immediately be rolled-back to the state prior to performing the update. We will then investigate the issue and if we can easily fix the problem, we will as part of our normal maintenance routine. If the problem is more extensive, you will be contacted to discuss a solution prior to performing the work.
For more extensive updates and development, a website staging environment will be created for testing and troubleshooting before going live.
