WordPress Website Maintenance
What is WordPress Maintenance & Why Do I Need It?

What is WordPress Website Maintenance and Why Do I Need It?

This is a great question!

WordPress is what is called a Content Management System – or CMS for short. Its job is to help you Manage all of the Content that you want to share with your website visitors. WordPress is so good at what it does that it is #1 in the world.

However, being software, it is constantly being improved and fixed by developers tasked with this responsibility. That’s where the Maintenance part of what we do at Idea To Growth LLC comes into play.

We watch for all of these changes. When they happen, we review the changes then implement them into your “copy” of WordPress and make sure that your website continues to work as you intended.

But, it’s not just the WordPress CMS that needs maintenance.

Every website runs a lot of other software – called Plugins – that gives your website all those features that you love.

Plugins do all sorts of wonderful things for your website. Some plugins perform website security functions to help keep both you and your visitors safe.

Other plugins provide those easy-to-use Social Media buttons so that your visitors can easily share pages of your websites with their friends.

Still, other plugins help make your website pages open on your visitor’s computers, tablets, and mobile devices as fast as possible.

All of this software requires regular review and maintenance to be sure that it keeps working properly.

This is why your website needs our WordPress Maintenance Service.

Check out our plans and choose the one that fits your budget and needs.

WordPress Website Security
The Three Little Pigs Story!

What is WordPress Website Security and Why Do I Need It?

This is a great question!

WordPress is what is called a Content Management System – or CMS for short. Its job is to help you Manage all of the Content that you want to share with your website visitors. WordPress is so good at what it does that it is #1 in the world.

However, there are a lot of bad people – referred to as hackers or black hats – that want to steal your data or take over your website for nefarious purposes. That’s where the Security part of what we do at Idea To Growth LLC comes into play.

Our Website Security Service is something that is “super techy” to most of our customers. Most people are reluctant to buy something that they don’t understand. I want to help my clients understand the importance of this service to their business. To accomplish this, I need to take take a very technical service and craft a story that non-technical clients can more easily grasp and understand.

Allow me to share a story I tell about our Website Security Service to help potential clients understand a complex service that is important to have to protect their business.

Did you hear the story about a big bad wolf (the problem or challenge facing a typical client) that came to each of the homes (the clients business) of the three little pigs (the potential clients)? At the home of each little pig, the big bad wolf huffed and puffed to try to “blow their house down” (destroy the business).

The first little pig had built his house out of straw. As a result of the weak construction, the big bad wolf huffed and puffed and easily blew down the straw house, leaving the first little pig homeless.

The second little pig had built his house out of sticks. As a result of the weak construction, the big bad wolf huffed and puffed and easily blew down the stick house, leaving the second little pig homeless.

The third little pig was wiser than his two brothers and built his house out of stone. The house took a bit longer to build and cost a little bit more, but the third little pig knew his house would be much safer. As a result of the third little pig’s houses sturdy stone construction, the big bad wolf huffed and puffed, but the house didn’t budge. The third little pig looked through his window and laughed at the big bad wolf. “You’re not making me homeless!” said the third little pig.

“Do you want your business website protection to be like little pig number 1, 2 or 3?”

“Our Website Security Service makes your business website as secure as the third little pig’s house.”

For the “techy” folks out there or the non-techy who want to become techier, please keep reading. I have more details on some of the key things we do to secure and protect your business website from the “big bad wolf” who wants to destroy or hold your business for ransom.

One, on our web servers we do a process referred to as “hardening”. This is a documented process we go through each time we set up a new web server to run our client’s website. It involves steps that include changing permissions on files to prevent hackers from gaining control of our web servers. It also involves renaming and moving files from their “normal” names and locations on the servers. These are just a few of the web server hardening steps we take to protect our web servers from the bad hackers.

Two, we run professional grade security software on our web servers. This adds an additional layer of protection to our web server hardening process. The security software we use does way too many things to list here. However, it helps make our web servers, and therefore your website, safer from hackers.

Third, we use a Content Delivery Network – or CDN for short – as both a layer of protection and as a way to speed up the delivery of your content to your website visitors no matter where in the world they reside. A Content Delivery Network is a geographically distributed network of proxy web servers and their data centers. The goal is to distribute copies of your website geographically around the world as close as possible to your website end-users in order to provide high availability and high performance.

This is why your website needs our WordPress Security Service.

What is WordPress Website Support and Why Do I Need It?

This is a great question!

WordPress is what is called a Content Management System – or CMS for short. Its job is to help you Manage all of the Content that you want to share with your website visitors. WordPress is so good at what it does that it is #1 in the world.

However, there are changes and enhancements that you will want to make to your content over time. That’s where the Support part of what we do at Idea To Growth LLC comes into play.

Let’s say that you want to reword the verbiage on one or more of your web pages.

Maybe you found or made some new images for some of your web pages.

Perhaps you have a new product or service that you want to start selling and you need some new web pages.

These changes are each a Support request that we would handle for you!

What is WordPress Hosting & Why Do I Need It?

What is WordPress Website Hosting and Why Do I Need It?

This is a great question!

WordPress is what is called a Content Management System – or CMS for short. Its job is to help you Manage all of the Content that you want to share with your website visitors. WordPress is so good at what it does that it is #1 in the world.

However, a physical computer – known as a Web Server – to deliver your WordPress Website content to your visitors. That’s where the Hosting part of what we do at Idea To Growth LLC comes into play.

How do you know which of the hundreds of WordPress Hosting services is “right” for your WordPress website?

Easy. At Idea To Growth LLC, we’ve researched the technical capabilities and pricing of website hosting services around the world and pre-selected hosting providers that we believe meet the best balance of capabilities and pricing for your WordPress website.

Why don’t we just let our clients choose whichever hosting service they want and have us manage the hosting service?

Great question!

The key reason we choose the hosting service and not our clients is that each hosting vendor is different.

Vendors each have different hardware.

Some vendors provide higher amounts of high-speed memory (known as RAM) for the same price as other vendors. The more high-speed memory a web server has the higher potential performance (quicker time to open your web pages).

Some vendors provide Flash memory rather than spinning hard drives for storing your content. Flash memory is hundreds of times faster than older, slower spinning hard drives. If you bought a laptop computer in the last few years it likely uses flash memory rather than a spinning hard drive for persistence storage. The flash memory in newer computers is the main reason the computer boots (starts up) faster. We require our hosting companies use Flash storage to help give your website top performance.

Another key reason we choose the hosting service is that it lowers our costs to support our clients. If we had to support dozens to hundreds of different hosting companies it would dramatically increase the cost of our service. Can you imagine the training and support documentation we would have to maintain just for our staff for each hosting service? It would be impossible to provide a low-cost service.

Lastly, by us choosing the hosting service that we run and maintain your WordPress Website on gives us leverage with the hosting service. The more web servers we run, the potential for better pricing and service. This helps us keep our prices as low as possible.

This is why your website needs our WordPress Hosting Service.

Frequently Asked Questions

◉ What is “Website Maintenance” and Do I Need It?

This is one of the most frequently asked questions we get.

“Website Maintenance” is the work related to keeping your website running as good (or better) than on the first day that you launched it.

Every day that goes by, developers find “better ways to code” websites. They find “bugs” in their code that needs to be fixed. The WordPress Core gets updated. Plugins get updated. Google, Safari, Explorer update their browser and change something in their code. Suddenly something on your website quits working or visually “looks weird” and your web developer needs to go in and change your website in order to get everything working right. All of these things fall under what we call “Website Maintenance”.

What happens if you don’t have regular maintenance on your website? Nothing good. Your website “breaks” and now your clients don’t see what you want them to see on your website. A broken website gives the impression of a “broken business”. You know what we mean. Do you want to go visit a business whose website looks “broken”? That business looks like they don’t care about their website. Maybe they won’t care much about their customers either?

◉ What is “Website Security” and Do I Need It?

“Website Security” is the work related to keeping your website and its data safe and hidden from those who should not be able to see it.

Every day that goes by, evil people and governments around the world (referred to as “Black Hats”) spend endless hours trying to break into (referred to as “Hacking”) websites, including yours, around the world. We’ve all heard about the very public breaking of Target, Facebook and too many others to list here. To protect your website you need a small army of highly skilled professionals (referred to as “White Hats”) to protect your website. Now to get you your “army” of “White Hats” to protect your website at a cost you can afford, we’ve combined the skills of our teams knowledge of knowing how to lock down and protect the web servers that store your website files, with a set of best-in-class WordPress Plugins to create the most impregnable security wall we know how to build. Our skills and these Security Plugins combine putting the right access permissions on all the files on your website, creating layers of firewalls directly on the hardware servers and a software firewall on the multiple instances of your website that we put o servers around the world to provide super fast page loads for your website visitors.

All of these things fall under what we call “Website Security”.

What happens if you don’t have best-in-class security on your website? Nothing good. Your website “gets hacked” and now both your confidential information and your clients are in the hands of criminals. Guess what? You may not even know for weeks or months that your website has been hacked! Do you know how most websites find out they have been hacked? They start getting emails and calls from their customers telling you that they’re suddenly getting a bunch of email spam – or worse – if you have an eCommerce Website, they’re asking you if you shared their credit card with anyone because a bunch of unauthorized charges showed up and they had to have a new card issued and the old one canceled. You suddenly have to hire a very experienced “White Hat” developer to check out your website, verify if you’ve been hacked, then fix it. It can cost thousands of dollars and the entire time you’re not selling online! On top of that, you could face lawsuits from the credit card companies or your clients. Now you have legal costs too. Yikes!

Now no one can promise you that a website can’t be hacked. We can’t and are not promising that either. But most websites that are hacked were gotten into for very simple to close open holes in the security of their website. We do our best to make sure that none of the open holes that most Black Hat Hackers use to break into websites are open to them. Most Black Hat Hackers looks for the “Easy Break-ins”. Every minute of every day we can see the Black Hat Hackers probing our client’s website. They find all the doors securely locked. They move on looking for another website that is not as secure to break into. That how criminals work.

  • Make changes to the About Us section
  • Add or update a Product or Service image

◉ What is “Website Hosting” and Do I Need It?

Website “Hosting” is the act of storing and delivering your website information to your website visitors browsers around the world.

When you open the web browser (Chome, Safari, Firefox, Edge) and type in a web address (referred to as the “Domain Name” or “URL”), computers know as “Servers” read that web address and open up the content stored on another computer (called a “Web Server”) and displays it in your browser. The companies that own these “Web Servers” are known as “Hosting” companies. Their service is referred to as “Hosting”.

Every website needs a Web Server to “Host” (store and deliver) their website content to their visitors.

Therefore, every website needs the services of a Hosting company.

At IdeaToGrowth we use a Hosting company to “Host” the websites of our Clients. In fact, we will only build, maintain, secure and support our client’s websites through the Hosting company we use.

Why?

Because we spend a lot of effort in choosing the Hosting company to run our clients websites on. When something needs to be done, we need to know that we are able to get remote access to the web server quickly and reliably in order to keep our client’s websites operating at optimum levels. If we allowed our clients to tell us which hosting company to use, and something went wrong with their website due to an issue at their hosting company, who are they going to blame? Us or the hosting company.

Yep us – and we don’t ever want that to happen. We want to keep our clients happy!

All of these items fall under “Website Hosting”.

Great Question!

We make it easy for you to tell if your website is built on top of the Content Management System (CMS) know as “WordPress”.
