We install a specific set of plugins on every site we build. These cover security, backups, speed, and SEO. If your site wasn’t built by us, but you want the best for your website, this is the package for you.
Here at Green Cup, empowering our Small Business clients is our number one goal. That’s why every site we build comes with a free tutorial upon completion. Once you know how to use your site and understand the work that goes into it each month, you are able to make an educated decision on Maintenance.
We also understand that Small Business Owners are very busy, and you may not have time to manage your website or its blog schedule. We offer the following options if you don’t want the stress of doing it yourself.

Website Maintenance FAQ
What Are Updates?
Every website needs to be maintained, some more often than others. A WordPress website is constantly evolving in order to keep up with best practices and security threats. These updates to the WordPress software must be completed regularly. Similarly, the Plugins on your website are also updated often, both to keep up with the WordPress software and security threats. If you don’t have the time to log in and check your site for updates regularly, this may be something we should handle.
Why Does My Site Need Security?
WordPress is the most widely used CMS (content management system) to date, accounting for over 66% of all websites. It gained this standing due to its ease of use and good standing with Google’s standards. Any website is a target for hackers, and WordPress’wide use makes it especially enticing.
Every WordPress site has some security built in, but it is best practice to take extra measures to safeguard against attack. If you built your website yourself, or it was built without mention of security, some of the basics may have been overlooked. In addition, there are plugins (software) that make your site’s defense even stronger, and will alert you if an attack is under way.
What does the Plugin package include?
There are several measures we take when building a website. Some are best practices in initializing the WordPress software, while others involve Plugins. The Plugin Package includes both. We’ll double check everything is right in your settings, and add Plugins that will do the following:
- Make your site faster
- Offer more security
- Back up your content + database
- Optimize your site for search engines
Why might I want to change my design?
A website is a digital representation of your small business. As your business is always evolving, so should your website. Your design might change due to a new product launch, updated branding, or require corrections after an update. Finally, website trends change from year to year. Keeping up with these trends will keep your business looking fresh and up-to-date.
