Imagine How You Would Feel if You Woke Up One Morning and Your Website Just Wasn’t There. What Would You Do? How Would You Feel? Our Support Plans Ensure that Your Sites Are Maintained and Kept Up To Date and Your Data Is Stored On One of the Most Secure Places on Earth
Keeping your website right up to date need not be a headache each month. In fact most people don’t even realise that their sites need to be maintained and most of all they need to be backed up. Your investment in your site is so much more than the actual dollars it cost you to create it. And it is not only all that time you have spent writing up all the content. As time goes by your website becomes more and more valuable.
People start to know about it and over time there will be a number of websites who backlink to it. The search engines will have indexed it and will be starting to upgrade its page rank. Effectively your site if treated correctly will, like fine wine become more valuable as time goes on.
To that end it is vitally important that you keep your site maintained and up to date. To help you we have two plans for you to choose from – a standard plan and an advanced support plan. To each of these plans you can also add a backup option which I highly recommend.
Standard Website Support System
As part of the “Standard Website Site Support System”, we will ensure that the software on your WordPress site is updated each month. This includes the Content Management System (WordPress) itself, and all the WordPress plug-ins that are used to run your site.
In total there are over 15 individual pieces of software that run your site and these should be updated every one or two months. We will do this for you.
This will give you complete piece of mind and ensure that every aspect of your business is professionally looked after.
Under this plan we are also available to help you with any issue you may have. Just send us an issue via email and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
Advanced Website Support System
This plan includes all the features of the Standard Website support System plus the ones below.
Zero Touch Site
Do you want a site where you do not have to touch the site at all?
With this service, you just tell us the pages you want created and we will create them for you. Naturally the words, images, and tables have to come from you but we will happily take your information and create the pages, blog posts or menu items you require. (Maximum of five new pages and five updated pages per month)
Telephone, Email and Live Support
Under this plan we are also available to help you with any issue you may have. Just call us on our toll free number (1300 766 812) or send us an email and we will make it our mission to resolve your issue as soon as possible.
Advanced support clients also gain exclusive access to our support portal (http://portal.austlink.net) to log job tickets.
Finally we also have technology (http://support.austlink.net) which enables us to take over your screen (PC, Mac, or Linux), with your permission, to help you guide you through any issue you may have.
On Site Support for Your Clients
Our website support system puts a little button on the left hand side of the site which when clicked opens up a support window. Naturally not all sites would have a use for this sort of system but where appropriate this can be a great feature which your clients will love.
The following window will open over the top of the current window. This is not a pop-up in the traditional sense of the word. Rather it is a window which overlays the original window and it “grays” out the original window. The significance of this technology is that pop-up blockers will not stop this from being displayed.
These requests are automatically logged on our central system and tagged as having come from your site. We are notified which page the person was on when they made the request.
Our support agents also receive an email with the request and simultaneously also receive all the information regarding your site sufficient to enable them to resolve the issue.
Many of you would like the request to be automatically routed to your address of choice. This is also possible.
Your Critical Data Backed Up to One of the Most Secure Sites on Earth
Imagine if you wake up one day and your site is not there. You madly rush around for the contact details of your website host and find that they have also vanished from the web. Sometime later after furiously searching on Google, you discover, with that sick feeling in your stomach that your host who you have been dealing with for the last three years has gone out of business and your website is no longer displaying.
Worse you do not have a local copy of your files. You have spent years putting the data into that site sometimes adding multiple posts and pages each week. It soon becomes apparent that you are going to have to reconstruct your website from the source documents you have on your computer. Do you even know where they are?
Don’t believe that this can happen? This is the exact true scenario of one of the leading Women Internet Marketers in Australia. But in her case it wasn’t just one site and she was making serious money from them. There was no backup and the person who ran the hosting company who she had grown to know and trust personally had just pulled the plug and left her without any ability to get her data back. It was a terrible situation which left her with the choice of starting from scratch of giving it all up.
In the end she decided to rebuild, but it took a team of people over six weeks working extremely hard to get her sites back to where they were. It was stressful, time consuming and very expensive. She was lucky in that she had a profitable business. What would you have done in the same situation?
Our backup facility will back up all your valuable data, every single blog post, every page, all your images and files from your WordPress based website to our storage facility on Amazon S3. If you have your own Amazon S3 account we can also back up to that instead.
This is the design specification for Amazon S3. It is pretty amazing:
“Amazon S3 is designed to provide 99.999999999% durability of objects over a given year. This durability level corresponds to an average annual expected loss of 0.000000001% of objects. For example, if you store 10,000 objects with Amazon S3, you can on average expect to incur a loss of a single object once every 10,000,000 years. In addition, Amazon S3 is designed to sustain the concurrent loss of data in two facilities.”
Your data is backed up each week ensuring that a copy of all your latest blog posts and website changes are up securely kept on Amazon S3. Because this plan is only available with one of our support plans we will also make sure that the backup is being done and working correctly as part of our normal maintenance.
