Monthly WordPress Security Maintenance Package
For security reasons, it is important that your site is maintained regularly. If malware is detected on your website, Google will take it down and replace it with a red warning message, while your hosting provider will also take the site down.
In the long run, securing your WordPress site is much less costly and stressful if it’s maintained; preventative measures are the most economic (and stress-free) approach to maintaining a professional appearance, rather than spending gobs of money on cleaning up a hacked website. That said, I also offer a Monthly Security Maintenance Package to keep your life stress-free!

Woocommerce Major Updates sometimes require file changes if your site has template overrides, which would be handled if/when the Woocommerce Plugin requires an update. If your site is highly customized throughout the store pages, additional fees may apply.
