Managed WordPress Hosting & Maintenance

Security, Speed and Reliability sit at the core of our Manage WordPress Service.

WordPress is an amazing platform, but if it isn’t kept up-to-date then things can get out of hand quickly. Your website needs to be secure, fast and reliable and this happens when you have a combination of quality hosting and a regularly maintained website. 

Unbranded Space’s Managed WordPress Service provides convenience and “peace of mind”. We source hosting on reputable servers based in the most geographically relevant location to your website visitors, which is usually, but not always Australia.  Our flexible maintenance schedule ensures that your WordPress website stays up-to-date with the latest plugin and security updates. With an Unbranded Space Managed WordPress Hosting service, you can leave it up to us to make sure your website is running smoothly and focus your valuable time on your business.

Unbranded Space Managed WordPress Service FEATURES

Unbranded Space has brought together everything your website needs to run efficiently, reliably and securely. The features of our managed service are numerous, and we’ve listed some of the essentials below…

PLEASE NOTE: Not all features are available on all plans. Please compare plan features to view specific plan details. 

Managed WordPress Service FAQs

Unbranded Space is primarily a Website Design Agency involved in the design and building of websites. As such our primary focus is on the clients we build websites for. The plans you find on this page are designed so that we can provide the best service possible to the clients we have built websites for. 

Therefore our plans are aimed at our clients for whom we have designed/built the website. We have plans of varying sizes to accommodate small and large websites and business budgets.

Our plans allow us to provide each client with the flexibility they desire in regards to how much control and management they wish to have with their website. Some businesses value knowing that they have a website bringing in business that they don’t have to be bothered with because we are managing & maintaining it for them. Other business owners like to be more hands-on, being actively involved in updating content and marketing the website. Unbranded Space plans can be either of these or both, at different times, when required. 

WordPress has a fantastic feature that allows for multiple websites to be hosted on the same WordPress installation. Our Essentials plan takes advantage of WordPress multisite to host multiple websites, however, we still limit the number of sites and size of the sites that are on this plan to ensure your website maintains good performance. 

The Visual Page Builder is a simple to use page editor for adding and editing the pages of your website. On the Business and E-commerce plans, you have this functionality. The Essentials plan only allows for editing existing pages. 

The Essentials plan is limited to 1GB of shared storage. To ensure that your website operates within this limitation we must restrict the number of pages. The Essentials plan is designed for simple websites that only need a limited presence and in most cases, 5 pages will be sufficient for this purpose. 

We do also place limits on the length of pages. Although we do not have a hard limit on how long a page should be, we will let you know if we feel you are approaching that limit. It is not good for your website to have enormous long pages as most of your visitors will lose interest if they have to scroll through too much information.

Email uses up a large amount of storage space and it is not possible on a shared plan to allocate the amount of space required to operate email effectively. 

If you require email hosting, we recommend you either upgrade to the business plan or use a third-party email hosting service, such as those provided by Google or Microsoft. 

WordPress plugins need to be updated frequently. The Essentials Plan has automated plugin updates that occur as updates are released. We provide this service because the list of plugins we include is limited to those we provide. 

Our Business & E-Commerce plans can differ from website to website as to which plugins are installed.  This adds a lot of flexibility to what WordPress can do, but there is also a slight increase in the risk that plugin updates may cause conflicts with other plugins. Verified Plugin Updates means that we manually verify the plugins after updates each month. We check our client’s websites to ensure that they are still operating as expected. 

The Essentials plan includes the following plugins:

  • Updraft Plus Premium
  • Elementor Pro Page Builder
  • Smush Pro Image Optimiser
  • Defender Pro Security Optimiser

 

The Business Plan includes all of the above and the following can be added as required at no additional cost (installation is free, but configuration costs may apply):

  • Lightspeed Cache (Speed optimiser)
  • Hustle Pro (Email marketing plugin)
  • Forminator Pro (Advanced Form Design)
  • Smartcrawl Pro (SEO tool)
  • Advanced Custom Fields Pro

 

The E-Commerce Plan includes the addition of WooCommerce, the Stripe payments plugin and the free version of the Australia Post Plugin. 

With the Essentials Plan, we only allow a very limited number of plugins to ensure the websites continue to operate optimally. You can suggest a plugin, but we will only consider installing it if there is no additional cost and we think it will be of interest to other clients on the service. 

Websites on the Business & E-Commerce plans will often have additional plugins installed specific to the needs of just that website. 

Daily server backups indicate that the entire server is backed up daily. All websites exist on a server that is shared between a number of other websites. Daily server backups allow you to be confident that should there be a server-wide issue that impacts all websites, then a backup can be installed with a minimum loss of data. 

However, if something goes wrong with just your website where it needs to be restored from a backup, then to restore your website from a server backup would incur an additional cost. We provide a standard weekly cloud backup service that exist in addition to the server backups. These cloud backups can be restored at any time at no cost. 

E-Commerce websites store information about customers & sales inside a database. With the E-commerce plan, we ensure that potential data loss is minimised by adding daily cloud backups of the database that occur in addition to the weekly updates of all of your website files.   

The image optimiser automatically optimises the images on your website as they are uploaded. It does this by reducing the size of the image files, while still maintaining a good quality image. This helps to keep your storage usage low and reduces the amount of manual optimising required before uploading an image. WordPress creates multiple versions of images for different screen sizes, so it is essential that an image optimiser is used. 

You (ie. the business owner paying for the Managed WordPRess Service) own the website.

Our Managed WordPress Service is about providing convenience to our clients. We aren’t interested in locking customers into a service that they can’t get out of. 

Unlike Wix, SquareSpace and numerous other website platforms, you own the website and are always free to take your website elsewhere at any time. WordPress allows you to export your website from within the dashboard, meaning you have the ability to move your service at any time. Because of the service we offer and the value of the plugins we bundle with your Managed WordPress Service, we are confident that you won’t need to use this facility, but we make it available regardless. 

Note: Although you own the site, please keep in mind that moving a website is usually a complex task that requires the skills of a professional Web Developer.
