Clients opting for our Standard WPEngine hosting account automatically benefit from many support and maintenance services that are normally considered premium extras, including daily backups, malware scanning, automated WordPress updates and staging servers.
But if you’re still looking for an extra level of maintenance and security, our WPEngine Plus hosting adds additional support directly from our studio. London WP will monitor your site, your themes and its plugins and update them when a new version is released. If a plugin has been retired or stops functioning, we’ll replace it with a suitable alternative.
WPEngine offer a different relationship to their clients and agencies like us. Their operate under the ethos that we’re all on the same team, so unlike other service providers we’ve encountered, there’s no bouncing the blame back and forth between developer and host when there’s a problem with a 3rd party plugin.
These issues inevitably put a strain on the relationship between the developer and the client and end in heartache for the site owner, so whilst WPEngine are not the cheapest on the market, in our opinion, it’s the best!
Need ongoing support? Our Annual Maintenance & Support contracts offer pre-purchased development time in bulk. With a minimum of 20 hours development time, you can enjoy a 25% discount on our normal development rate, equating at just £60 an hour.
Great for when you want to develop a new feature for your site, redesign a page or just make a few little tweaks, you can use all your time at once or spread it over the 12 months. There’s no minimum monthly spend and the rate remains the same throughout. (Minimum time is 30 mins per support request).
