Upgrade + Speed Up your WordPress sites

Upgrade + Speed Up your WordPress sites

For just $450 $249 before 14 October 2019.

The first thing that you need to know about web applications is that it is never a Build It and Forget It technology.

Technology evolves. CMSs evolve too. Open Source development is continuous.

What happens with your web application code:

  1. Code gets refactored and improved over time with new technology
  2. Many code vulnerabilities that come light are fixed
  3. User-tested feedback is factored into the application to improve it
  4. New features get added to the existing code to make do more
  5. Plugins are added to improve the performance, caching and optimization of your website

As a result of all this the core application, or CMS, on which your website is built, usually upgrades every month.

Plugins too need to be upgraded, though less often.

Load speed is mandated for better ranking by Search Engines.

Best practices require that your website follow these rules:

  1. CSS/ HTML/ JS files are minified and zipped for a better browser experience
  2. All your site images are optimized
  3. For mobile sites, images have to be scaled to load faster apart from making the site responsive
  4. JavaScripts are placed at the bottom of the page

The extent to which the above is done, or not done, is reflected in your page scores.

You can check the page scores for your website here: http://www.gtmetrix.com, right now.

If your website takes longer than 5 seconds to download, you have an optimization problem.

Page Speed affects your ranking on Google.

Well, the worst-case-scenario is that you become the target of hackers, malware injections, code vulnerabilities, and other serious performance issues.

Your host may decide to switch your site off if it’s malware infected. Your business could suffer as a result.

What we have also noticed is that if you wait too long to upgrade, then chances are that your theme may break on the upgrade and conflicts may occur with scripts used.

Often, you might have to completely write-off the old site and invest in a new one. All this dramatically increases your costs.

The choice website owners have is:

  1. Upgrade it now for as little as $249
  2. Or wait and upgrade it later at our regular rates of $450

At some time, you will be forced to upgrade if you wish to keep the site in good order. Especially if inquiries and leads flow to you from your website.

The recommended practice is to upgrade it once every 3 months if you are serious about your business.

Well, the core application first, and then all the attendant plugins which are used on your website, will be manually upgraded.

The plugin list itself on most websites is considerable:

Forms, SEO, eStore, Caching & Performance Optimization, Backup, Admin Helpers, Galleries, JQuery scripts, SEO helpers, etc, all may need to be upgraded.

A few premium plugins such as Gravity Forms in WordPress, or Forms/ Caching, will be upgraded at no extra charge.

That would mean more saving from $39 to $120, at no extra charge to you.

Plus, we are happy to add automatic site promotion plugins at no extra costs.

Other premium plugins that are part of your website may have expired and you’d have to renew their license if you wish to continue with the site upgrade.

Usually commercial licenses are valid for just for one year from their date of purchase and we will have to check if any of these can be upgraded for free, or if we have it in our library.

We will also perform Google Page Speed tests on your web application and tweak the application for faster loading.

You will be able to notice a positive difference in page scores/ load times, after this upgrade effort.

Once all this is done in a production environment, we still take the site live and test it all over again.

The safest method is to

  • Backup your website application
  • Load it on a test server
  • Upgrade the core to the latest CMS version
  • Test it for issues and correct if any
  • Upgrade plugins, one at a time
  • Test after each plugin is upgraded and correct it as needed
  • Check for CSS issues and correct it as needed
  • Check for JS conflicts and correct it as needed
  • Check for speed issues and sort these out
  • Show you the site on your test server with page speed scores
  • Make the site live and test again for any issues

Why can’t you use the one-click upgrade offered in WordPress?

While WordPress does offer one-click upgrades, we have observed that this often breaks your website because of deprecated code and is therefore not an advisable strategy for site upgrades.

We discovered a few months ago that the auto site upgrade had made the Case Studies pages one of our websites on Pigtail Pundits disappear completely.

Two, WordPress auto site upgrade is only available for the core, not the plugins.

Often plugins are where the vulnerabilities occur in WordPress and there is no one-click upgrade for that.

Well, from our experience about 15 hours, depending on the problems we encounter during the upgrade and optimization, or $450.

But until 14 October 2019, we’re happy to do it for a charge of just $249.

That’s 45% off from our normal rates to get your site in purring, Google-loving, hacker-malware-vulnerability-free condition.

Plus, to sweeten the deal, we are throwing in a few premium plugins for which we have Developer licenses. These include site promotion plugins and form plugins.

If there is a rush of projects and we can’t upgrade your website, we shall stand stick to our promise and complete this in November and December 2019.

If you commit, you can be assured of the rates for site upgrades in November and December 2019 as well.

No, this offer excludes theme upgrades. There is a reason for this.

Most designers modify the theme directly. When this is so a theme upgrade will overwrite all the modifications that your designer has affected. The site layout, look and feel will then go completely awry.

Theme upgrades are recommended only when your designer has strictly used a child theme for making modifications. But for reasons of time, and often ignorance of best practices, this practice is ignored by most designers.

It’s also possible that many different designers have worked on your site over time. Each has his/ her or her own way of working with the main and the child themes and now it’s a mix of modifications in both.

All this makes theme upgrades very messy and have the possibility of ruining the site.

So it’s wise to keep the old theme as it is.

  • You need to pay 100% advance for the site upgrade + speed up + theme + security + sharing/ promotion plugins
  • You can avail it for just one site, or all the WordPress sites that you host
  • You can even extend this to other clients that you know, or your friends. The only caveat is they must be registered on the e-bizda.com international business directory
  • You can also buy now and use the service within 3 months to take advantage of the offer, if you so wish. This is especially so if your website is less than 6 months old.
  • The service expires on October 14, 2019 and will not be available thereafter.

No. This offer will end 14 October 2019. The last time we had this offer was in 2016.

So do hurry. As we said you have 90 days to use up this offer. So you can buy your December upgrade today!
