When we update WordPress and plugins, our team also monitors your site to make sure your site does not crash. If we do find an update breaks the site, we will attempt to fix it first, and send a notification to your account contact email address. If we are unable to fix it (usually when a plugin is no longer supported in WordPress), we will restore your site before the update and contact you to find the best way to move forward, such as contacting the plugin developer or finding an alternative plugin. If the fix is unknown or not immediate, we will roll the site back to the most recent backup (created before the update). We will spend up to one (1) hour of time fixing/troubleshooting the issue – if we cannot fix within that time, we will give you a time/cost estimate and let you decide if you’d like us to move forward.

Your website is an investment and you should have a quality hosting. We will migrate your website for free on our server.
If your existing host does not support any of our recommended backup options or does not meet our minimum requirements for hosting, you may not be eligible to receive all benefits of our service.
