Running an online business is no small feat. There is content to produce, marketing to and analysis of prospective customers, and don’t forget fulfillment of products or services.
If you are an online business owner, a freelancer, or someone who simply makes a living via a WordPress website, you understand that in order to be successful, time management is key.
But what about all of the behind the scenes tasks that need to be handled on a regular, sometimes daily, basis? Things such as updates, backups, compatibility issues, database optimization, security scans, and more.
Maintaining your WordPress website can take a lot of time away from your business’ bottom line. It is easy to get caught up in the administration side of things, which don’t get me wrong, is very important. But when your livelihood depends on revenue from sales and you neglect to put enough time into establishing and running your business, you will ultimately lose out on some great opportunities.

Junior WordPress Maintenance Service
For $50/month you can enjoy a basic set of WordPress maintenance services to keep your website up and running without putting any of your time into it.
Ninja WordPress Maintenance WordPress Service
A step up from the Junior service plan, for $100/month you can enjoy a set of premium services that keep you out of the admin side of your website and only on the revenue building side where success awaits you.
It is important to note that both the Junior and Ninja maintenance plans come with a page speed optimization report upon signup, off-site cloud backups, and 24/7 email support.
After exploring the services FixMyWP offers website owners I did find in the “Fine Print” some things that may not sit well with some:
Each WordPress Maintenance Service can only be used once per month.
Reply from FixMyWP: After the first month of maintaining a website, there is not much that could happen so for example, our subscribers never had to clean their site at all since it has been always up to date and take care of. We had to put this restriction because we can’t control who is having admin access to the Dashboard or how their Hosting partner works thus we may find ourselves in a situation where a site is constantly hacked and misused. That has nothing to do with maintenance so we had to exclude it from our services.
You can use all of the listed services during the same month.
Reply from FixMyWP: Well that is actually a good thing because it states that you can ask us to work on your site fixing a js conflict on Monday, then ask for a site cleaning service on Wednesday and a host migration on Friday. We tried to make it clear that you can enjoy all services under the same month.
Payment is per WordPress installation with Multi-Site installations counting as more than one site.
Reply from FixMyWP: Each minisite from a multisite installation is actually a separate site so it needs to be maintained separately. Many WP Maintenance Services either don’t mention support for Multi-Sites or don’t offer any since those kind of installations are always more complex that regular ones. We decided to provide support to our clients and be transparent about it.
WordPress Maintenance Services are not transferable from month to month.
Reply from FixMyWP: The subscription model works this way. I feel this point of criticism is a bit stressed, I mean point me to one subscription service that transfers its services from one month to another and I will stand corrected. Once more I think it’s about me being as transparent as possible by stating the obvious which in return makes my visitor question themselves about something they are used to see but never really been told about.
Overall FixMyWP does offer some really great maintenance services for those using WordPress websites. It’s unfortunate that general pricing is not available for their a la carte menu. Though each website does differ in its maintenance needs, it would be nice to have an approximate payment price for comparison reasons.
I did however really love the setup of their website. Under each service, they provide there is a detailed explanation of what each service entails and why it would be important to have this service applied to your website. I think this lends to the credibility of the company and lets me know my website is in the hands of experienced WordPress professionals.
The tedious tasks that happen behind your WordPress website must be taken care of if you want your website to render perfectly to your site visitors. When finding the time to care for your site’s insides becomes difficult, I would definitely recommend giving FixMyWP’s maintenance services a look. With affordable and fairly comparable maintenance service packages and individual pay for what you need services, I feel your website would be in good hands with the team at FixMyWP.
And if your website would get hacked FixMyWP WordPress Hacked Fix Services clean and update your WordPress Site in 24 hours or less.
