WordPress Maintenance & Support
As the old adage says, prevention is better than a cure.
When your WordPress site isn’t up-to-date, plugins can unplug, hackers can hack and malware can get malicious.
Let our WordPress eXperts take care of routine maintenance tasks (like daily backups, virus scans and plugin updates) to inoculate your site against all those wicked WordPress maladies.
If your site is essential to business, it’s essential that you hire the best. With 18 years in tech services and web app development, we understand more than just WordPress. Avoid costly “site-down” errors, customer desertion and loss of sales with our premium WordPress support and maintenance packages. View our WordPress maintenance pricing below!

Our surveillance team collects intel that makes James Bond blush. With daily malware scans, code checks and vulnerability tests, malicious scripts and villainous viruses don’t stand a chance!
Downtime is detrimental. You lose business. Your search engine rankings drop. We monitor your site and offer timely alerts in case of failure to get you back online before it affects your bottom line.
Do you get twitchy every time you go to the Dashboard > Updates screen? Do you worry about updates breaking your site? Let us handle it with our industry-standard “safe update” process.
Sometimes, things just go wrong. With off-site backups, your data will be safe—and retrievable—no matter what IT disaster happens in the office (hardware failure, fire, flood, software snafu).
This is like running a vacuum over your carpet. Day after day, “debris” (eXtra data) collects on your site. We suck up (remove) the unnecessary stuff before the build-up slows down your site.
Get your website analytics all in one place. Performance scores, uptime and site session data included, along with a complete record of all maintenance and scans performed by our team.

Frequently Asked Questions
We staff our Help Desk with actual humans who can make small tweaks for you like content editing, theme or CSS stylesheet adjustments, changing plugin settings, configuring forms and much more. From code to general WordPress issues, we’ll take care of almost anything related to the design and development of your website that can be done within 30 minutes from within the WordPress Dashboard. The Help Desk is open during normal business hours.
Help Desk support tasks do NOT include installing brand-new plugins, custom development (PHP, plugins, themes, etc.), updating custom theme code, graphic design, or building out a new landing page, new form, or new website.

Absolutely. 18 years! We are an actual company staffed with professionals – not just a couple of WordPress geeks sitting in a basement office somewhere offering support and maintenance plans as a side gig. This is what we do. Every day. We’ve got the A+ BBB rating!
With all plans, additional hours for eXtended tasks can be purchased in time blocks per eXcelisys’s normal rate plan. Discuss your needs with your eXcelisys account manager or project manager for estimates and timeframes.
On-site backups (to a second hard drive or server) are handy because the data stays close and is quickly accessible. However, if your server fails – the same one you are trying to back up – or if there is an office disaster (like a flood that ruins your hardware) you may never recover your critical data.
You will receive an alert. If it is a server issue, you should ask your hosting company to fix it. If it is a WordPress issue, we will dive in during business hours to fix the issue or restore a backup ASAP.
We monitor load times and page speed scores for improvements or dips. Using this data, we may recommend small changes to which plugins are used for caching and optimization, or recommend a larger page speed optimization project if more drastic measures should be taken.
If a malware vulnerability is found, we get an alert and it shows up in the report. Most of the time, this is taken care of via regular plugin updates. If a breach or attack is found before the vulnerability was addressed, we will restore the site to a prior backup and patch the vulnerability so it doesn’t happen again.
There are no payment plans. You pay for the whole year upfront.
eXcelisys has stayed in business for 18 years by providing eXcellent service, leaving thousands of satisfied customers in our wake. However, if you are unsatisfied, we can offer a prorated refund.
If a plugin or theme update breaks a website, we won’t update if it is causing a “global error,” meaning the homepage cannot load properly due to the update. If a smaller issue arises as a result of the update, we just need a support ticket that lets us know what the error is so we can try to fix it locally, or restore a backup and quarantine that plugin or theme from being updated in the future.
Well, there’s a difference between getting it done and getting it done right. Our industry standard update process means we back up your site, apply the updates to an offline copy, then test your website thoroughly before we go live to ensure there are no issues so you have NO downtime. You’d be surprised how many times an update brings a website to its knees! We’re not a “plug-and-go” type of company; we test everything. We scan everything. Over and over. We get involved with your website to ensure it stays up, is optimized, and runs at peak performance. We’ll provide you with detailed reports noting the eXact time/date of every update, backup, security scan and performance check we complete. The Better and Best plans also include direct Help Desk support. Yes … HUMANS! Priceless, right?
What happens if I have a problem with my hosting platform or need support outside of normal business hours?
We recommend WPEngine.com for WordPress hosting. It provides 24/7 support for any problems or support you may need during non-business hours. While WPEngine conducts backups and updates of core services (like PHP and WordPress core), WPEngine does not mess with plugin updates, content changes or provide routine monthly maintenance services as provided in our premium WordPress maintenance and support packages.
