Handling the day-to-day responsibilities of running a website is not as easy as it seems. There is a lot to do behind the scenes to keep your site secure and working toward its goal of promoting your business. You are a business owner, not a webmaster. Why would you want to handle all of the arduous tasks of website management, like updating themes and plugins, making daily backups, managing comments and spam, and more? The truth is, you shouldn’t have to. This is where Managed Hosting from 1sixty8 media comes in.
Managed Hosting from 1sixty8 media is much more than just hosting. It is a comprehensive solution designed to give you peace of mind and ensure that your website is up and running, and generating valuable traffic and leads for your company. We take care of everything.
Managed Hosting from 1sixty8 media includes all of the following services:
Daily Redundant Backups
We back up your website to two separate locations daily. Should there ever be a catastrophic failure of your site, we can roll your website back to a specific date and restore it, usually in less than an hour.
Regular Updates of Core Functionality
Our process ensures that your core platform, theme and plugins are updated four times each week. This is critical to the continued functionality and security of your website.
Daily Security Checks
Even the most up-to-date websites can be the victims of hackers and malware. Even our sites. Our processes monitor and check your website every single day to ensure that there is no security issue. If an issue occurs, we act on it immediately and take the steps necessary to stop it in its tracks.
We know immediately if your website is down. Our system notifies key members of our team when a website is down so we can take prompt action and get you back in the game.
Great websites require great software. We handle all of the costs associated with licensing the basic software that your site requires. (It is important to note that some licensing fees will fall outside our standard Managed Hosting Program.)
If your site goes down, we are in your corner. In most cases, we are able to get your site back up and running before you even know it was down!
FAST Hosting Platform
Just take a look at any of our websites and you will see that they load lightning-fast. That is not by accident! We use a top-tier hosting platform that loads your site quickly and makes your visitors and the search engines happy.
We don’t just tell you what we do. We show you. Each month, you will receive a Managed Hosting report detailing everything mentioned above. You will know exactly how many backups we made, how many security checks we conducted, and if and for how long your site was down.
Basic E-mail Solution
Although 1sixty8 media always recommends G Suite (formerly Google Apps) for your e-mail solution, we will happily provide you with up to 12 e-mail addresses.
Managed Hosting costs $99/month and is available to anyone using the WordPress platform for a website. A scaled down “maintenance only” version is also available at a lower cost. Contact us today for details, and let us protect and manage your website.
