My company, Harness Media, offers Website Care Plans. These plans include premium web hosting, SSL certificates, server-level firewall, spam protection, 24/7 malware scanning, automatic WordPress updates (for WP core and plugins), and much more. These Care Plans are intended for clients that just want to “set it and forget it” so they don’t have to deal with the day-to-day issues of hosting and caring for a website. To make things even more attractive, we partner with many third-party services to handle things like spam, email delivery and security issues — on top of all that, we use only the best, high-quality, super-performant hardware and software to keep things running fast and smooth.
But sometimes I work with clients that already have a good understanding of ongoing website maintenance or they have an IT team with web capabilities, and they want to manage the maintenance issues themselves. In those cases, I recommend Pressable for their managed WordPress hosting needs. Pressable is great, but there are still a few layers that the website owner or manager needs to maintain, such as WordPress core, plugin and theme updates, content updates, and various activities that require some daily upkeep. My experiences with Pressable have always been positive — they are reliable, capable, and obviously interested in your success.
