Our WordPress Maintenance Plans Explained

Think of your WordPress Maintenance Plan as an insurance policy. HostHuski will take care of any site maintenance included in your plan. From uptime monitoring to web developer hours, we offer maintenance plans that include the ideal benefits for your website.



Enjoy WordPress Maintenance with the Shield Plan

Our Shield Plan offers enough coverage to meet basic requirements that can prevent a hack or vulnerability in your site. We perform WordPress maintenance by updating your WordPress core, all of your plugins, and your theme if we have the ability to do so from the dashboard without uploading. We also create a backup of your website database off-site (not on our server) for added peace of mind.

Note: if you are looking for extras that help your site perform better, or mitigate spam you’ll want bunker-level maintenance or higher. More advanced plans include website optimization and website monitoring. Upgrading your protection is also a great way to get discounted (or even free) virus removal.

Get Website Optimization with the Bunker Plan (Most Popular)

Our most popular maintenance plan includes both website optimization and website monitoring. We’ll passively and actively optimize the images on your site to promote fast load times, and our uptime monitoring, also included with the Bunker Plan, adds another level of assurance that your site is performing well. Our website monitoring increases both speed and security: We monitor your comments for spam while also working to filter out spam passively. It is $100 or $150 if you happen to get hacked, having the Bunke Plan will save you over 50% on virus removal. 

Malware Scanning Included in the Fortress Plan

For a site needing serious security and maintenance, The Fortress Plan delivers enhanced coverage. In addition to the features in Bunker and Shield plan, we also provide proactive security features like malware scanning and complimentary anti-viral treatment in case a hack does happen. The Fortress Plan includes one hour each month with a web developer.

WordPress Maintenance Features 


Web Developer Hours

With select plans, you get developer time for your website needs each month (hours do not rollover). This ensures we can help you time-to-time with more advanced challenges that might require one of our experts to step into your WordPress dashboard to configure or fix something. Web developers can also write you some code to accomplish a task more efficiently.

These hours are independent of site maintenance and are only used when you request something outside of our maintenance scope for your plan.

24/7 Uptime Monitoring

Select maintenance plans include uptime monitoring performed by our live technicians. Uptime monitoring allows us to keep a finger on the pulse of your website. If it doesn’t load, we are immediately alerted so we can quickly and proactively restore your site to optimal functionality.

How We Do WordPress Maintenance


We can manually monitor your site for issues that could arise from updates, and then actually fix the problem.

Crash insurance.

If anything ever goes awry due to a plugin/theme/WordPress update, we will fix it for free. Available on all non-Lite plans.

Only for WordPress.

Here are some common questions about our maintenance plans.

Does site maintenance include changes to pages or design?

Site maintenance includes routine work required to ensure the security and reliability of the website’s systems. Updates to text, images, pages, or design elements is not included in maintenance by default, but can be performed for you using any available Web Developer Hours where applicable.

Can I upgrade and downgrade whenever I want?

We provide the flexibility of monthly billing for maintenance to ensure you aren’t stuck with something you don’t need. We request a minimum of 3 months on your current maintenance plan before downgrading to a different one. The upgrade/downgrade is effective the following month. Customers who abuse the upgrade and downgrade options (for example, trying to dodge fees or selectively activate specific features for one month sporadically) may be subject to having their maintenance entirely suspended.

Do you guarantee a specific Page Speed or Performance Rating?

While we do everything we can, on certain maintenance plans, to ensure your site is optimized and take many steps proactively and passively to accomplish this, we cannot guarantee a specific outcome due to other factors outside of our control.
