ID Will Keep Your Site Up to Date and Safe from the Bots, Hackers and Ne’er Do Wells
There are those guys. We’re talking about the people on the web who are trying to make a buck – or just create havoc – by hijacking your site to sell knock-off sneakers or just deface pages for the “lulz.” (LULZ is a corruption of LOL, or Laugh Out Loud. For the ‘LULZ’ is a hacker term describing actions as for “fun.”)
Intrinsic Digital protects your site in two ways:
- Regular backups based on the protection plan you choose which suits how often your site is updated by you or ID, and;
- Regular security and malware scans made of your site by ID according to your plan with ID
ID Will Scan Your Site for Malware and Other Security Threats
Depending on your plan, Intrinsic Digital will run security scans on your website at least once per month. We deal with WordPress because we believe it’s the best content management software on the web. WordPress is so good that nearly 30 percent of all websites on the internet are built on the platform. Because of its popularity, WordPress has become a target of hackers. ID continues to support WordPress because of the developers’ innate dedication to security. That being said, like any software, WordPress core is regularly updated. ID keeps your site safe by ensuring your site stays up to date, but, we also run malware and security scans to determine whether your site is at risk from things like brute force attacks. If we find a problem:
- ID will communicate directly with you about things like user credential weaknesses or plugins that may pose a security risk.
- ID will restore your site to the last known secure state via our backups.
- ID will recommend and help you fix security holes such as out-of-date plugins and user credentials that do not meet recommended user name and password standards.
ID Will Restore Your Site If There is a Problem
Whether you subscribe to ID’s Small Business/Blogger or Bigger Business package, we’ll restore your website to the last backed-up state where there was no hacking or other security threat. We keep each backup of your site for at least six months.
ID Will Keep Your Entire Site Up to Date
By entire site, we mean the whole thing. Whether you use the Small Business/Blogger plan or the Bigger Business package, someone from ID will be logging into your site at least once a month (once a week for Bigger Business) to update WordPress Core, Plugins and Themes.
ID Will Communicate with You Every Month
Since we’re logging in to the back end of your site at least once a month – and often checking the front end – we will send you a personalized email at least once a month to let you know what we’re seeing and what we’re doing. You’ve given us administrative access to your site, the least we can do is let you know what we’re doing and seeing. We may give you advice and we’ll always give you a report of what Intrinsic Digital has done.
Every Month You Will Accrue ID Credits for Site or Content Updates
What makes Intrinsic Digital different is the fact our founder made his career by creating content. We know that the best content strategies are sometimes derailed for lack of content – written and visual. Because ID truly believes ‘Content is King’, we allow our clients to accrue up to two hours worth of content creation or strategy to be used when they need it. Would you rather use your credit for site modifications such as CSS or template changes, that’s OK too.
