WordPress care plans

We take the stress out of managing your WordPress website, so you can focus on running your business. Regular website maintenance will ensure that your site remains an asset for your business and that your most important website information is safe and secure.


Frequently asked questions

WordPress plugins are created by multiple authors, and are consistently updated to newer versions to comply with the latest version of WordPress, or to address security issues and bugs.

It is not guaranteed that the mandated updates to WordPress will not break the website, nor that plugins will continue to function if not updated.

For this reason, having a trained web specialist on hand to monitor the website is necessary to update plugins, rollback plugins, replace plugins or even adjust the theme to continue optimal performance.

Although these care plans are typically for websites that Azapi built or re-designed, we welcome clients who are looking for a long term relationship with a dedicated web team.

We normally first would like to do a Website Audit and Review to become familiar with your website, how it was built and any potential issues that can arise. Website Audit and Reviews are charged at a fixed 4 hour fee.

Most importantly we will make a list of issues to fix and suggestions for improvement needed in order to proceed with the website on a monthly care plan.


We provide a support ticket desk for quick turnaround and tracking of all support requests.

You can submit all requests to support@azapi.co.za and we will reply within normal business hours.

Please note if you are not on a Care Plan our standard hourly rates will apply for support.

Absolutely, you can add pages, posts, products etc. to your hearts content.

Remember we are there to help, feel free to send a support request to support@azapi.co.za  if you need any help. 

All care plans include full offsite cloud backups i.e. WordPress files + WordPress database.

Depending on the package you choose, these backups are either done daily, weekly or monthly.

Cloud backups

Off-site cloud backups, giving you peace of mind. It’s imperative to have an up-to-date backup of your website. We can schedule daily or weekly backups, making sure that your website is safe in case disaster strikes.

Security checks

Regular security checks help to ensure your website is free from malware, known viruses and vulnerabilities. We also check blacklists. If any files become infected we can act quickly to clean the website before it becomes a problem.

Google Analytics

Provides detailed visitor statistics and analysis to show how many people have visited, what they are looking at and how they arrived at your site.

Core WP upgrades

Core upgrades are vital to keeping your  WordPress website safe and operating optimally. Part of these updates typically include security patches, new features and other optimizations.

Premium plugin access

As a Care Plan client you will receive access to use Azapi premium plugins. Professional Page Builders, various Addons, Gravity Forms, WP Rocket and ShortPixel, valued in total at over $500.

Plugin upgrades

Plugins are constantly being upgraded, as bugs are fixed and other improvements made. It's important to keep all plugins updated for your website to remain stable.

Theme update

Keeping your website theme updated, including any child themes is important as bugs are fixed and new functionality rolled out to keep up with ever evolving technology.

Uptime monitor

A robot will “ping” your website every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day and if your site is down, we are immediately notified by SMS. Unlike robots, we humans do need to sleep, so fixes are done during office hours.

Image optimisation

Is a process to provide high-quality images, whilst reducing it to the smallest possible size. This lightens web pages, reduces loading times and cuts down on network resources, thus improving the user experience and increasing site visibility.

Database optimisation

Involves maximizing the speed and efficiency with which the data from your website database is retrieved. This improves site loading times as well as the overall user experience.

SEO monitoring

We keep track of how your keyword ranking changes, find out who your competitors are, and how you stack up against them.

Performance checks

On our Care Plans we check and optimise your database to ensure unnecessary data doesn’t slow down your site’s performance. We constantly monitor our hosting environment to improve speed and stability.

Monthly reports

We'll email you a detailed monthly PDF report on what we've done and how your site has performed. The report includes a breakdown of plugin and theme upgrades, security scans, performance checks, up-time, and even Google Analytics stats.

Support & consultation

Includes updates to your website, such as adding and editing pages, updating content, pdf files, images, basic technical support, providing advice and a lot more. 

Priority support

is for our customers who require quick & responsive assistance. You can take comfort in the fact that your request will be addressed by our team with priority attention.

However, in the case your website need emergency care we will be there bringing it back to 'live'.

We cannot promise your website will not break, but can promise we will do everything in our power to prevent it. We can also assist in the restoration of the website from a backup where needed. In the event your website has been hacked due to outdated plugins, we will assist in doing a manual clean of the website. Please note extra support fees will be charged for cleaning hacked websites.

Yes, you can cancel anytime with a full calendar month's notice. You are under no obligation to continue with the ongoing service.

Out of office hours or weekend support  are charged 1.5x our standard hourly rate.

We'll do work on your website and can include adding and editing pages and posts, updating sliders, tweaking your site and a lot more.

This is over and above the backups, updates, security scans etc. which do not count towards your hours of work each month.

This makes our WordPress Care Plan an extremely affordable solution for any business not wanting to employ a full time web team.

Keep in mind that requests like adding new functionality, design work, and other larger tasks may require a separate quote because these typically take longer than the hour or two allowed.

The monthly time is there for you every month to reserve your place in our queue and our resources, therefore it does not rollover.

You can take comfort in the fact that your request within that 60/120 minutes of time (depending on your care plan) will be addressed by our team with priority attention.

If you have a task that requires more than your dedicated monthly time, we will submit a quote for you to approve separately from your plan.

You can upgrade at anytime to a higher package.

You can downgrade at any time after giving a full calendar month's notice.

It depends on the type of change request you submit. It may also depend on how busy we are on that given day.

Our goal is to complete requests within 24-48 business hours upon receiving the change request.

You'll get a unique ticket number so you can track communication and status.
