4 WordPress Maintenance Companies, to Help Site Owners

WordPress ecommerce owners must keep their sites updated and maintained. Over the past few years, services have sprung up to address this problem. Whether you’re a site owner with no developer on staff, or a developer that needs more manpower, the following companies offer packages to keep everything running smoothly.

I asked three questions to the company founders to understand each service.

  • How would you sum up your services versus other WordPress maintenance companies?
  • Do you support all WordPress ecommerce requests or just certain ones?
  • What types of tasks should WordPress ecommerce site managers outsource to your company?

1. WP Maintainer

WP Maintainer

WP Maintainer

WP Maintainer was founded in early 2012 out of the need of founder Andy Stratton’s clients for a less expensive monthly retainer plan. The company focuses on maintenance, security, backups, and support for WordPress sites. Price: $99 per month.

Founder Andy Stratton provided these details of his company’s services.

  • He summed up his service as “comprehensive, capable and efficient. We tend to be a bit more expensive but have had instances where clients have signed up with us while with lower cost competitors to get resolution to an issue after a month or more of competitors attempting to make progress. We’re a small but strong team of experienced developers. No one is entry or junior level at WP Maintainer.”
  • On handling ecommerce requests: “We have capabilities to implement just about any WordPress-based ecommerce solution and can forward extremely customized requests to our parent agency, Sizeable Interactive. We work primarily with WooCommerce and integrations, maintenance, and updates.”
  • “We manage updates, security, backups and maintenance — all crucial for any site that’s supporting ecommerce, revenue goals, or simply branding and lead generation. We also can integrate plugins, extensions, design tweaks, and help sites realize their day-to-day, week-to-week and month-to-month goals.”

2. WP Curve

WP Curve

WP Curve offers WordPress services for an unlimited number of 30-minute jobs in a month. Price: Monthly plans require no contracts, and range from $69 to $99.

Founder Dan Norris explained more about his company’s service.

  • “We offer 24/7 unlimited support and small fixes (up to 30 minutes). We were the first to offer this. As far as I know, we are still the only one that can truly offer 24/7 support with a team of 16 full time people in 10 cities.”
  • On handling ecommerce requests, “Anything we can do inside 30 minutes is covered. We love WooCommerce and have a lot of customers using it.”
  • Common projects include “all of the typical sorts of jobs for normal site owners like speeding up the site, setting up analytics, fixing bugs, upgrading plugins, and doing backups. In addition, we are regularly suggesting WooCommerce add-ons and installing and configuring them.”

3. Maintainn

Maintainn

Maintainn

Maintainn was founded in 2012 and offers monthly plans and one-time WordPress fixes. Price: Plans range from $39 to $289 per month, including custom plans. Enterprise plans support up to five sites.

Founder Shayne Sanderson offered these additional details.

  • “We treat each client’s site as if it were our own and take care of them accordingly. We have a ridiculous amount of talent on staff and we just take care of people.”
  • “WordPress ecommerce is something we know well and we support it fully. The only limitation is the amount of support and development time available each month on a particular plan. We have something in the works (coming in the next few months) that will make WordPress ecommerce site owners very happy.”
  • “We handle a variety of tasks, so if it’s WordPress-related we can do it. Most clients love having us available so they can focus on their business and leave the technical and development work to us.”

4. WP-Monitor

WP-Monitor

WP-Monitor

Hector Torres, a designer and developer who realized more companies needed to keep their sites maintained, created WP-Monitor. Price: Four packages, ranging from $20 to $99 per month.

Torres described his company’s services.

  • “WP-Monitor is the complete WordPress Maintenance service; we offer more features than any other WP service.”
  • On ecommerce tasks, “Three of our plans, starting with the $49 per-month plan, offer a certain number of manual changes. For example, the $49 plan offers two manual changes per month. Those changes include ecommerce changes, such as adding a product, changing a product’s price, and changing a product’s image.”

    Good article on a growing industry. I also own a new WordPress maintenance and support company, WP Minder (www.wpminder.com/). If you do a followup I’d appreciate it if you would check it out as well. Thanks.

    Hi Joe,
    Nice article and good questions to the companies.
    As a freelancer I’ve found that outsourcing the necessary maintenance of WordPress sites is something my customers have started to ask for more and more so I’m launching WP Techworks here in the UK (http://www.wptechworks.co.uk)
    Thanks

    Nice! I know this post is fairly old. However, I would like to mention another such service, http://wpemergencyroom.com/. Been using these guys a few times and must admit, they do a great job. I now have them do all my general WordPress tasks. They are also really affordable compare to most other support services. Well worth a try.

    I’ve gone through a few different wordpress support companies in the last two years. At this point I have to recommend Total WP Support at http://www.totalwpsupport.com – they are relatively new on the scene but Im finding they have very high quality support at a very affordable price. Worth a look.

    WordPress maintenance definitely seems to be a rapidly growing market. I have to say though, the level of service from a few providers I’ve tried has really disappointed me.

    So much so in fact that I decided to move away from WordPress website & plugin development and start my own maintenance and support company. The aim is to solve the pain points from the big players whilst undercutting them. Feel free to check us out at https://wpnexus.io if you fancy a look.

    Great list of services and website. I have been using Security-press.com for backup , security of all my wordpress websites.

  9. Daryl Green February 5, 2016 Reply

    Virtually any size of ecommerce store is going to need wpbackup to ensure that the site is live at all times, running fast and regularly backed up. There are quite a few companies offering the basics of scans and backups but not all that many that offer the full range like https://stylemix-wp-support.com do to cover design, development and coding tweaks in one off jobs as well.

    Great article indeed but these are only the ones that come up on the first page of Google. There are other really awesome companies out there that are providing excellent support and maintenance for WordPress. The one I stumbled upon was CMS Managers. I have 2 sites with them. I get monthly reports and have used their free migration service. Also they helped connect my host gator account to a CDN (cloud flare) at no charge. I paid yearly for 2 sites and got 2 discounts. 1 for paying yearly and 1 for signing up more than one account. They are worth checking out even though they are new. http://www.cmsmanagers.com

    Hi, thanks for this amazing article.

    I just want to share a short feedback of my career. Besides working for Codeable as an expert, I’ve started a maintenance service last year and now I have more than 30 clients, that pays me 99$ monthly to take care of their WordPress installations.

    I’d like to advise everybody to offer this to their clients. It’s a good option to get predictable income monthly.
