Frequently Asked Questions

“Updates? What updates?”

When you sign up for Managed WordPress, you can be confident that we really do manage 100% of the back-end of your site. Our team works tirelessly to pull strings, push levers, and work proactively behind the curtain to keep your site working smoothly and securely. Updates to themes, plugins, and WordPress are handled automatically, and any issues that pop up are taken care of by our developers.

“What about domains and email?”

We’ve got you covered. We’ll host your DNS, provision and deploy SSL, and even configure G Suite or Office 365 email to work seamlessly with your domain. Regardless of where your domain was registered (Google, GoDaddy, Bluehost, etc), we can get everything tied together. Even better, you can transfer your domain to us and you’ll never have to worry about it again.
