WordPress Maintenance Add-Ons

WordPress maintenance add-ons are special services we perform in addition to what’s included in your WordPress maintenance plan.

Unless specified, WordPress maintenance add-on pricing varies and is primarily subject to the unique requirements of each website. When you request an add-on, we’ll meet to confirm your needs and then provide an estimate for each add-on.

Click an add-on below to get started.

Featured Add-On

Retainer Plan

When you have a regular set of predictable tasks, it’s convenient to be on a retainer plan. Purchase a block of hours to use for doing miscellaneous development, security, performance, SEO, content, design, or hosting tasks. There are three available plans:

  • Mini – 2 hours
  • Medium – 8 hours
  • Intensive – 16 hours

Plans and hours can be “stacked” in combination.

Other Add-Ons

Change WordPress Update Frequency

If you want to change the frequency of your WordPress updates to weekly or daily, request this add-on.

Name(Required)

Configuration of Plugins and Themes

Some plugins and themes require a lot of knowledge to correctly configure. We’ll configure and optimize plugins to meet your site’s specific needs. We’ll also provide visual documentation on the configuration in case you need to duplicate it in the future. Then we’ll test your site and deploy it.

Name(Required)

Custom Upstream Setup and Management (Pantheon.io)

Pantheon’s base upstream is great, but what if you want a custom configuration from which to create all new sites? Webidextrous.com will create and manage a custom upstream to your specifications.

Name(Required)

Enable InnoDB on the Database (Pantheon.io)

To perform their best on Pantheon, all tables in your database should be using the InnoDB engine. Some plugins create tables that don’t use InnoDB. This can cause your database to become less performant over time. We’ll upgrade your non-compliant tables to InnoDB and test your site before making the changes go live.

Cost: $50 per site (one time)

Name(Required)

Enable Redis Caching (Pantheon.io)

Redis caching makes a copy of frequently used data from the database and puts it into an “object” for faster retrieval each time a page is loaded on your site. This reduces the number of “expensive” database queries and speeds up your site. We’ll enable Redis on your Pantheon-hosted site and ensure it’s working properly.

Cost: $50 per site (one time)

Name(Required)

Enable Solr Search Engine (Pantheon.io)

The WordPress search engine is very basic. It doesn’t provide a “Google-like” experience for users like a full-fledged search engine will. We’ll enable Solr on your Pantheon-hosted site.

Cost: $50 per site

Name(Required)

Go-Live Website Launch

On the day your site is meant to go live for the first time, we’ll perform all of the migration and domain connection tasks so that you can focus on serving your new customers.

Name(Required)

Installation of Plugins and Themes (Pantheon.io)

Some popular and useful plugins and themes have trouble running on Pantheon. That’s not because Pantheon is broken but because many plugins are not secure or performant. They require access that breaks Pantheon’s superior security and performance models. We’ll install and secure those insecure and inefficient plugins and themes using Pantheon’s recommendations and workarounds. (This add-on does not include the Configuration of Plugins and Themes add-on.)

Name(Required)

Load Testing and Performance Reporting

Whether your site is going live for the first time or you need to load test it before going live with a new feature, we’ll plan, build tests, execute them, and report on the testing of your site’s capability to handle heavy loads.

Name(Required)

Long-term Offsite Cloud Backups (Pantheon.io)

Pantheon only keeps backups for a month for automated backups and up to 6 months for manual backups. If you discover a problem that originates older than your oldest backup set, you don’t have a valid restore point. With this long-term offsite backups add-on, a separate copy of each Pantheon backup is sent to offsite cloud storage for as long as the add-on is active. When the add-on is deactivated, you are given 30 days to download your offsite cloud backups after which the backups are deleted. Your Pantheon backups remain as configured. If we instead send backups to your own cloud backup account, we won’t expire your backups.

Name(Required)

Mobile View Testing

It’s easy to forget to test your site on mobile devices. With this add-on, after you do a design change we’ll test your site’s page layouts on smartphones and tablets according to your specifications.

Cost: $70 per site

Name(Required)

Notifications to External Messaging Services (Pantheon.io)

Did you know that you can receive customized notifications whenever we do something to your Pantheon hosting? We’ll enable notifications to Slack, Trello, Asana, Jira, or Pivotal Tracker.

Cost: $200 per site

Name(Required)

PageSpeed Review

As your site expands and evolves, page speed problems can creep in without becoming obvious. As needed, we’ll scan your site for page speed issues and provide human-written recommendations.

Cost: $50

Name(Required)

PageSpeed Review + Optimization

If you want to go beyond just a review and recommendation for page speed enhancements, we’ll also go ahead and optimize your site’s page speed. Then we’ll test your site and deploy it.

Cost: Estimated based on optimization work required

Name(Required)

Removal of Plugins and Themes

Deactivated plugins and themes that are no longer in use can be targeted by hackers and can also reduce performance. We’ll remove all deactivated plugins and themes for you, including cleaning up any plugin tables, options, and, if hosted on Pantheon, any Pantheon-related workarounds. Then we’ll test your site and deploy it.

Cost: $50 per site

Name(Required)

Sanitize User Data in Dev, Test, and Multidev (Pantheon.io)

If your live site contains sensitive user data that you don’t want your developers to access, we will enable database sanitization. Whenever your live site is cloned to Test, Dev, a multidev, or to a Localdev environment, customer email addresses, billing addresses, and other confidential information will be scrambled to ensure that developers can’t walk away with your customer contact info or use them in inappropriate ways.

NOTE: This feature carries risk! Even though it is usually rare to do so, if a sanitized Dev environment is cloned to a Live environment during a content redeployment or site redesign, sanitized user data will also clone to the Live site. We can disable sanitization prior to the redeployment and re-enable it after.

Cost: $100 per site

Security Review

With every site update, we’ll scan your site for security issues and provide human-written recommendations.

Cost: $50

Name(Required)

Security Review + Optimization

If you want to go beyond just a review and recommendation for security, we’ll also go ahead and optimize your site’s security. Then we’ll test your site and deploy it.

Cost: $100

Name(Required)

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Installation or Renewal

If your site doesn’t have SSL, it should. Google down ranks pages on sites without it. If you need SSL installed or renewed on your site, we’ll take care of that for you. If you’re hosted on Pantheon.io, SSL is already included, installed, and renewed automatically!

Cost: $50 per site

Name(Required)
Is this to install or renew your SSL?(Required)

Special Feature Testing

When we update a site, we automatically check up to 25 URLs to ensure that the visual integrity of the pages remains unchanged. However, there are additional tests you may want us to perform, such as filling out a contact form or purchasing a product, that will further validate that the site is fully operational after an update. With this add-on, we’ll talk with you about the requirements and then perform these additional tests each time we update your site.

Cost: Add $50 per month to your plan price

Name(Required)

Training on the Pantheon Platform (Pantheon.io)

We’ll help you with onboarding new team members to get them up to speed on how Pantheon works and all of its capabilities. The training includes a recording sent to you once it is completed.

Cost: $1,000 per training session

Name(Required)

Two-factor Authentication

We’ll set up two-factor authentication (TFA) and help you with training users on how to log in using TFA. The training includes a video you can distribute to users.

Cost: $100 per site

Name(Required)

Upgrade PHP Version

We’ll upgrade your server to the latest supported PHP version, then we’ll test your site to ensure that it’s working under the new version. If a plugin or other code on your site is incompatible with the new version, we’ll let you know and give you options for having it fixed before deploying it to the live site.

Cost: $50 per site
