Support Service & Maintenance
From helping in the event of a hack attack and providing technical help with WordPress, to creating amazing digital marketing campaigns, we want to make sure that we are always on hand to help and support you. As our customer base continues to grow we are also keen to continue providing the fast personal service that has contributed to our success so far. In order to keep your website safer from attack, WordPress and the plug-ins we use to deliver the great features you enjoy on your website, need to be updated regularly. From November 30th 2019, we will be monitoring and updating all of our WordPress sites within the new increased hosting price.
HOWEVER, when making these updates we cannot always guarantee that the new versions will all work with each other. To manage this and try to avoid any loss of service or functionality, we have a number of service options for our customers to take advantage of. We are hoping you will read through the information below and choose a support package that suits you!
I am happy with the new hosting terms, the extra investment (£120.00 + VAT) and to have Global River monitoring my website and updating it when needed. If I experience any loss of functionality I am happy to pay the ad-hoc/emergency rates below.
Ad-hoc/emergency rates for hosting only customers
- Monday to Friday 9am to 5.30 pm £90.00 + VAT per hour
- Out of hours – £150.00 + VAT per hour
In addition to the monitoring and updates that Global River currently undertake on my website I would like any issues that arise from any of these updates to be fixed immediately and am happy to set up a standing order for £30 per month to cover this*.
* Each fix to be a maximum of 1 hours work.
I am already on a WebWorks package and with Global River
* All my updates will be made at the much reduced hourly rate
** Any emergency work will be undertaken immediately at the much reduced hourly rate.
