Than You Think

Your website is out there representing your business 24/7/365. It is the hub of all your marketing efforts, and you’ve invested in your most significant asset online. But your website is not something you can set and forget. You wouldn’t buy a car without adding insurance or not take it in for maintenance and oil changes, right? Just like a car, your website needs regular care and maintenance.

WHY YOU NEED A website care plan

Cybercrime is on the rise. A record number of hack attempts happen worldwide every second, and websites have never been at greater risk of being compromised. Software updates and vulnerabilities happen every day. Plugins fail. So many things can go wrong. You need a website care plan if you don’t have a dedicated in-house web team to ensure your website performs safely, securely, and predictably.

Automated SSL Certificates

In a traditional single-firewall setup, the site could become vulnerable
to malicious attacks or experience downtime if the firewall fails for
any reason. We use Redundant Firewall Protection to address
this issue by creating a fail-safe system with multiple firewall
devices working in conjunction. If one firewall becomes
unavailable, another one automatically takes over its role,
maintaining the network's security.

to a regular assessment of a website's components to identify and address
potential security vulnerabilities. These checks are essential to ensure that
the website's core software, themes, plugins, and PHP versions are up-to-date
and free from known security weaknesses that hackers could exploit.

*12-month minimum commitment

website hosting & care plan fAQS

If your website is built on the WordPress platform and is hosted with us, then the answer is yes. Currently, WordPress powers over 43% of the web. This makes it one of the biggest targets of hacking attempts on the planet. All websites require routine maintenance, and that’s what our care plans provide.

When we onboard your website into a care plan, a lot of effort goes into making sure you are set up properly, all of your software is updated and stable, and there are no issues we need to address.

We ask for a 12-month commitment to cover the time and effort we spend getting you up to speed with our Website Care Plans. But we do allow cancellations at any time.

You have two options to choose from. The Premium Website Care Plan at $395/month or the Elite Website Care Plan at $595/month are eligible for e-commerce website hosting. We love Woo Commerce and gladly support the extra activities and necessary support.

Absolutely! Although our plans were developed for websites that we build or re-design, we welcome new clients looking for support. We will conduct a WordPress website audit to verify your site would be suitable for one of our Website Care Plans. The fee for the audit is $150. Contact us for more details about moving your site to us!

Yes! If you find that the Website Care Plan you are on is not a good fit for your business, contact us, and we will adjust your plan and subscription for the next month. If you have an e-commerce website, then the Premium plan is the lowest option you can downgrade to. We do not offer e-commerce with the Essentials Website Care Plan.

While we take every precaution to ensure your website is safe and secure, we cannot guarantee that it will never be hacked or compromised. In the VERY unlikely event that this happens, we will implement a backup restoration and get your site up and running again as quickly as possible – usually within a few hours.

With the Leverage Marketing Website Care Plans, you will be granted access to our premium plugins using our license keys. Here are just a few that we offer:


  • Gravity Forms Pro
  • Advanced Custom Fields
  • CleanTalk Spam Protection
  • Divi Builder
  • Elementor Pro Builder
  • Elementor Pro Essential Add-ons
  • WP Bakery Builder


Some of these licenses cost a big monthly/annual fee. Being on a Website Care Plan with us will save you a lot of money and time.

Managed web hosting is the use of our services to host, maintain, and keep your website updated, secure, and running optimally on the web. An unmanaged web hosting service (typically what most cheap web hosting services are) is merely the location of your website on a web server, where you and your team manage everything on the website and server yourself.

When you sign up for one of our Website Care Plans, you will enroll through our website and pay via a subscription service with your credit card, debit card, or through ACH Bank payments. These payment methods will be automatically charged on the same day each month for your services.
