Get Help with Site Maintenance

Whether you need a one-time update of your core WordPress files, your theme or your plugins or regular maintenance, Intergalactic Web Designers can help meet you with site maintenance. We can take care of the routine back-end stuff that has you pulling out your hair so that instead you have peace of mind that your site is up-to-date and secure.

We offer three site maintenance packages in addition to the one-time update that meet the needs of most of our customers. If you need something not included in one of the packages, we can customize a package just for you. We use PayPal subscriptions, which will automatically bill you every month but you can cancel at any time.

One-Time Update – $97

Don't ignore the "nag" messages in WordPressYou’ve see the “nag” message at the top of your WordPress admin screens for months now reminding you to upgrade your WordPress, your theme or your plugins but you haven’t had time. You’ve been busy writing blog posts, interacting on Facebook and Twitter, and making money selling your products and services. Perhaps you are afraid that it’s been so long since you upgraded that you’ll break something or that something will quit working as it should. Don’t worry. Intergalactic Web Designers can come to your rescue and remove that niggling worry that your site isn’t as it should be.




NOTE: This does not include manual updates to custom themes nor the installation of new plugins.
