WordPress Backup and Monitoring

WordPress Management

If you'd rather focus on running your business and leave your site in the hands of a WordPress professional, this service is for you! For an affordable fee your WordPress site will be backed up, secured and monitored by a WordPress professional. Learn more about this complete management package:

Off-site WordPress Backups

Never settle for database only backups by plugin again! Get daily off-site backups of your entire WordPress site. That's including files, with no storage limits. If you're paying for a 'site backup and restore' add-on from your host, your backups are not off-site. Includes free concierge file restore by a professional.

Managed WordPress Updates

WordPress core, plugin and theme updates performed by a human. No worries about automated updates taking your site down. Out of date code is often the source of hacked sites. Your site will be regularly checked for updates. Never worry about out-of-date or insecure code again!

Anti-Malware Security

Your site will be hardened and regularly monitored by multiple security tools. The best WordPress security plugins are installed and optimally configured to monitor for infection and prevent intrusion. Logs are regularly reviewed for any suspicious activity. On supported hosts, an additional tool will be installed to monitor all activity outside of WordPress.

Uptime Monitoring

Site checks every 5 minutes with downtime (and uptime) notices sent to the email(s) of your choice. Site availability is a factor in search engine rankings and your business's reputation.

Free Malware Removal*

I'm so confident in my WordPress management that I'll remove any malware infections that occur while under my coverage for free!

* This offer does not apply to existing malware infections, intrusions caused by weak password usage and hosting accounts shared with other applications or domains (unless covered by additional subscription).

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to have all of my plugins updated? What if I have a legacy plugin I want to keep?

Absolutely not. Plugin, theme and even WordPress version updates can be ignored by request. Please keep in mind that running outdated code increases your chances of being compromised.


Why would I want to monitor my site's uptime?

By knowing when your site is down for long periods of time, you can take action to get your site back up. No host can honestly offer 100% uptime. Infrequent, very brief outages happen to every host, but when your site is down for an extended period of time you need to be proactive in getting it up and running again. For outages of 15 minutes or longer, I suggest checking with your host's technical support.


How is this backup different than other backup solutions?

Most WordPress backup plugins are database only. The few plugins that attempt to backup files offsite are unreliable on anything but the smallest sites and impact your page speed. My backup solution is low impact, includes files and database, keeps your data securely offsite in Amazon S3 storage and is monitored by a human!


Do you offer additional support?

Yes! Once you're setup, you'll find a support contact form embedded in your WordPress dashboard for easy contact. I offer free WordPress advice but do charge for troubleshooting, etc.


I have a WordPress.com site. Can I use this service?

No, this service is only available for self-hosted WordPress sites. If you are interested in converting to a self-hosted site, please contact me below for a quote.

Scott was able to take what I thought was a nightmare of a job of moving our website and have be a breeze. He communicated throughout the process and made every step easy and let us know what was happening.
He made us feel we had a partner that was looking out for our best interest.

Scott was fast and proficient. For me, I was anxious and overwhelmed with trying to figure it out myself. It was worth paying someone to do it quickly versus me stumbling through it and possibly not doing it correctly. In addition, his price is very reasonable.

Scott's customer service was nothing short of professional and AWESOME! He explained everything he was doing and how it would effect on my site, and for someone who doesn't have extensive knowledge of how the backend of sites work, his patience and knowledge was GREATLY appreciated!! I would highly and happily recommend Scott to anyone looking for any of the tech services he offers.

I actually hired Scott from NetCrafted to also do a migration and malware removal from my blog. I am not tech savvy and somehow my blog came under attack and WordPress was going to shut me down. Scott came to my rescue and not only fixed all my issues but has basically held my hand through all the problems. I am content and happier that my blog (my baby) is being well taken care of by NetCrafted! I sleep much better because of the service I am provided. Thank you for everything. Don't ever leave me and I will be a customer for life, or as long as I own my blog, anyway!

Scott has been my right hand web man so many times. He was referred to me by my website theme developer 3 years ago (summer of 2013), and has since been so helpful with any problem that has ever arose. He's prompt with reply, and runs an honest (and super helpful) company that I'm so thankful to have standing beside me whenever I run into a problem. Scott, thank you SO much for fixing my site issues, one after the next, time after time, and so quickly! You are very appreciated.

Many thanks to Scott at NetCrafted for quickly migrated my website to a new URL. He did it so quickly and then even helped me find my missing email account! I suppose I could have figured out how to do it myself but it was worth every penny to know it was being handled by a pro!

Scott saved the day (and my whole week) when it came to fixing my website. After transferring to a new hosting company I couldn't get anything working properly and tried troubleshooting with both my hosting and website company with no solution. Thankfully I was referred to Scott and he had everything up and working within a few hours. He responded to my email right away after booking his service and was very easy to work with. I only wish I had known about him sooner so I could have avoided this mess in the first place. I definitely recommend working with him and will contact him for all future needs! He is helpful, professional, expedient, and worth hiring!

Scott did a great job, super quick and explained/answered all my questions (even the not-so-smart ones)! If I didn't just quit my old hosting company, I wouldn't know that anything changed because the process was so seamless. Exactly what I was hoping for and I would absolutely use NetCrafted again! Thank you!!

Scott did an amazing job! Worked very quickly and had it all done that same day I had sent the info he needed to process the Migration! Thank you so much!

I am so happy I found NetCrafted. They saved my life when spam hit my blog which I consider my "baby". I was confused and unsure of what to do. Not only did they come to my rescue to remove the malware, but they have also moved my site from a coworkers server, again something I would never have known what to do. Thank you!!

I used NetCrafted services to migrate my blog from Blogger to WordPress as well as to create 301 redirects when my URL changed. I received prompt responses to all my questions, professional service, and helpful advice. I highly recommend NetCrafted!

I hired Scott to help move my blog from one site to another. I highly recommend working with him as he was responsive, professional, and did exactly what he said he would do and at the price he quoted. No surprises, no delays, no disappointments. As a full time photographer, I have to wear many hats, and doing web site maintenance of any kind is my very least favorite thing to do. Let me put it another way - I avoid it like the plague. I can't even remember how I found Scott but I know it wasn't a personal referral. I took a leap of faith and am glad I did.

We've used Scott at NetCrafted a few times now: to shift our ProPhoto-based site from one domain to another, and to troubleshoot automatic ProPhoto upgrades. In all cases Scott has been quick, polite and totally professional, carefully explaining what he has been doing at each stage. We highly recommend his services!

In a panic, I was referred to Netcrafted when my website was acting up and I was receiving spam comments on my blog. Someone mentioned that malware may have crept its way onto my website. Scott was so helpful and knowledgeable while I was in a panic. As someone not really back end savvy, he explained everything to me and I felt well taken care of. He removed the malware really quickly and installed some preventative measures as well. I highly recommend him and his company. I hope to not use them again for this particular issue 🙂 but would trust him in an instant.

Scott helped me with some WordPress Management services (previous website) that I wasn't able to perform on my own. He is well versed in WordPress and has the skills to perform technical management tasks so bloggers can focus on content creation and promotion. My projects were completed with high quality, professionalism and were delivered on-time. I highly recommend NetCrafted.

I highly recommend Scott. He cleaned up my website of all malware, helped me reinstate with google, answered all my questions, and did everything with fast and timely response. He was recommended to me and now I know why.....his knowledge and service is very much appreciated.

This speed boost significantly increased the speed on two websites I have! I wasn't sure if I really needed the speed boost at first, but I'm so happy I did! Net Crafted has been such a help with so many other questions I have about changing hosting, etc. to help increase my overall speed of the site from all sides. Highly recommend it - great service.
