Security updates for WordPress and Drupal.
WordPress and Drupal are a lot like your mobile phone, the operating system needs updating regularly, and if it all goes wrong you have to either speak to an IT person or wait for the next update to fix the issue.
We recommend having an expert run these updates for you. We do them regularly to make sure your website continues to run smoothly and securely.
Fix any issues
Websites will inevitably go wrong at some point, whether it's a very minor problem or something more serious. With our website hosting and care service we will fix any issues caused by an update or software issue (your website must be hosted with us).
Free SSL certificate
An SSL certificate encrypts the data between the visitor and the website to prevent any information being intercepted. Google prefers websites with SSL certificates and is now ranking websites with SSL certificates above those without. You can see if a website has an SSL certificate if the website address starts with https as opposed to http, see below:
Browsers may show security warnings if there is no SSL certificate, so it’s important to have one of these with your website.
One-to-one website support.
If you get stuck managing your website, or want to have a chat about adding an extra feature, we’re here for you. It's Polyspiral's job to help you get the best out of your website.
Backups run daily on our server and if you need access we're happy to give you a secure login. In the unlikely event you need to restore from backup, we can do that for you for a small fee.
Up to 5 x branded email addresses
Having a BT Internet, Gmail or Yahoo email address is fine. However it looks more professional if your business emails come from your own branded email address for example [yourname]@[yourdomain].com. We can set up as many as five of these if you need. We provide the details you need to set up your email on your devices. We're not an IT service, so if you experience any issues we recommend a local IT person who can help.
