Plan Details

WordPress Updates

Includes WordPress core, themes and plugins. Typically performed weekly at a minimum and more often when major upgrades and updates are available. Let us know if any themes or plugins should not be updated. Does not include the licensing costs of premium plugins.

For static WordPress site hosting, please see Add-on Options below.

Managed Hosting

This covers most sites and includes a number of WordPress-optimized features like server-level caching, php7.x, and security isolation. Older sites and/or custom systems may not be able to take advantage of all options. Pricing may vary for non-standard setups and very large sites. Platinum plan sites are typically hosted on their own server instance or in a fully isolated environment to avoid "noisy neighbor" pitfalls commonly found with shared hosting.

Speed Boost

Includes caching, image, and code optimization for improved page load-time and performance. Lite version (includes site caching and essential image optimizations) available as an add-on at the Bronze level. Additional optimizations are available as standard on Platinum plans.

Basic SSL

Site-wide coverage. Uses Let’s Encrypt (open-source). Premium SSL certificates are available as an add-on service (generally $50 to $250/year depending on level of service need).

Offsite Backup

Cloud storage of your site and database with a 90-day retention timespan. Want your backups uploaded to your Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon S3, or OneDrive account? Add $12/month.

Vulnerability Analysis

This detection and mitigation effort is ongoing. It looks for WordPress site, theme, and plugin security vulnerabilities.

Cloudflare Management

Integration and management service that reduces server load, improves speed, and provides mitigation of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks, a shared SSL certificate, and a global CDN (Content Delivery Network). More advanced (premium) security and performance options are available.

Database Optimization

Includes removal of spam comments, if applicable (Akismet anti-spam plugin must also be activated to identify spam). Other optimizations may be performed as circumstances warrant.

Uptime Monitoring

Third-party verification that your site is working and viewable on a global level 24/7.

Security Checks

Scans your webpages for malware and checks for site “black listing” from trusted third-party monitoring services.

Performance Checks

Specialized site analysis to determine homepage performance score and identify areas that should be improved.

Businesswright Plugin

Includes the installation and administration of one or more Businesswright management plugins to enables better monitoring, analysis, and management of your site. This process includes an initial analysis of existing plugins and theme(s) along with suggestions of superior alternatives when available. Additional security enhancements are usually deployed at this time.

Plugins & Themes*

Gain access to premium plugins and themes, plus updates, through our licensing. As a MagnoliaGeek client, our software license covers your site (depending on the plan you're on) so premium plugin and theme software and updates are available to you.

Staging Environment

It's not a good idea to do design and heavy maintenance work on a live site. A staging environment is a clone of your site for the purposes of testing changes. It's a safe place where your customers cannot see what you're doing. When things are as you want them there they can safely be pushed to the live site.

Add-on Details

SSL

Stands for Secure Socket Layer, it encrypts your site for security. Now it can also provide a minor speed and Google rankings boost. Site-wide SSL is highly recommended for all sites and is essential for anyone selling online or managing personal information.

Premium SSL

On many web hosts, an open-source (i.e. no charge) SSL certificate option exists through the Let's Encrypt organization. When possible, this is what we use (that is our basic SSL option). Some hosts, however, do not support Let's Encrypt or the client needs a higher level of verification. We then then purchase and install the necessary type of SSL certificate. Pricing varies.

Cerber Security Pro

Cerber offers advanced WordPress security and anti-spam tools that go beyond their basic (free) version. Learn more about Cerber Tech.

Google Analytics Setup

This add-on includes Google Analytics account setup and installation of the tracking code onto your site. Access can be shared for viewing reports through your Google account or you may wish to upgrade to our premium "dashboard" to display your daily updated Google Analytics data.

Google Analytics "Dashboard"

Automatically imports your daily Google Analytics data, extracting what is commonly the most relevant and actionable data points into a beautifully visual format with colorful charts, tables, maps and more. Viewable online through a private link.

Premium Site Analytics

Google Analytics is now less reliable for tracking – they're circumvented by many ad blockers and privacy settings [source]. Fortunately, there are other data collection tools that can be used to provide additional site usage details.

Google, Apple, Bing

Getting pins on the maps within Google, Apple, and Bing are powerful ways to increase local exposure for your business or organization. Having verified listings and information posted within these platforms can significantly improve search results related to you. That means you are more likely to be shown on relevant search results pages for Google and Bing. This add-on is highly recommended for all local businesses and organizations.

Domain Name Registration

Many clients prefer for us to register and manage their domain name for them. That insulates them from most fraudulent "billing" scams and spam that use the email and address on the registration. It also protects their name from being lost due (from failure to renew annually) to changing credit card numbers or expiration dates.

25GB Email Account

You can have your own email address using your domain name (example: name@yourbusiness.com). Your email is stored securely and processed separately from your website for enhanced security and performance. Email can easily be synced across multiple devices or you can use the full-featured webmail client online from anywhere.

Autoforwarded Email Addresses

Many people like to use separate email addresses to easily filter categories or sources of email within a single account. Others like the professional look of their own branded email address (such as name@yourbusiness.com) but want to continue using their Gmail, Yahoo, or other free email provider. Creating a custom branded email address, called an alias, allows you to do this. Your customers don't have to know it's an alias and reach out to you through your branded email. Some popular aliases include your-name@, sales@, help@, and contact@.

WordPress Lite Hosting

Designed for very small, low traffic sites (i.e. single page "placeholders"), staging sites, and simple development work environments due to reduced server resources and speed. Availability is limited – only available with purchase of a Silver or Bronze plan.

Static "Coming Soon" Placeholder

Setup and management of a single page of non-dynamic content – typically used to pre-announce a new website. Includes sitewide SSL and hosting on a global content delivery network (CDN).

Static Site Hosting from WordPress

Setup and management of a small site (under 25MB and/or 12 pages overall) built with WordPress but converted to a very secure archive of non-dynamic content. Includes sitewide SSL and hosting on a global CDN with minor content updates allowed every 6 months. Please note that not all WordPress sites qualify or can be readily converted to static.

Rate Card v2.0.4. These rates are valid for 30 days. Minimum 1-year initial contract required for ongoing services. Following this period, contract will auto-renew monthly until cancelled (notice given of rate increases prior to billing).
