WordPress Maintenance Package:

Your WordPress website needs regular maintenance to perform as it should. Updates are always being made to WordPress itself as well as themes and plugins, and keeping your WordPress installation up-to-date is extremely important, especially since so many WordPress updates are security fixes and patches that will prevent potential exploits of the vulnerabilities of your website or blog.

Changes and Updates:

Although WordPress has a user-friendly backend made to be as easy as possible to use many clients choose not to perform updates themselves. I will update your site and/or add more features (plugins) for $40 + HST /hour.
