Frequently Asked Questions
Are there any long-term commitments or contracts?
Are there any set-up fees?
For new clients/websites there is no set-up fee. However, if you cancel/restart the service, there is a $150 setup fee.
What are your payment terms?
Payment is due before maintenance service begins. The low monthly fee is billed to your credit card on a recurring basis, until you cancel. This ensures that your website will be properly maintained and secured for the entire month.
Do you charge sales tax?
What is the discounted rate for WordPress Development?
Your plan includes up to 1 hour per month. Additional time is invoiced at a 25% discount (@ $75 per hour vs $100 per hour) for as long as you have a WPSimplifyd plan.
What does WordPress development cover?
Practically anything related to your WordPress website.
For example, adding new features; troubleshooting technical issues; consulting; training; creating custom graphics; adding new photos to your website; configuring Google Analytics; improving the user experience; and much more.
Can my WordPress development hour be applied towards a larger project?
Yes. For example, during the month of March, you have a project that requires 6 hours of development time. You will receive a 1-hour credit for that project (i.e., you will only pay for 5 hours of development time at the discounted rate).
Can unused WordPress development hours be used on another website?
Do WordPress Development hours roll over from month to month?
Is Support, Design, Development, Consulting, etc., unlimited?
Your plan includes up to 1 hour per month of support, design, development, consulting, etc. After that, time is billed at $75 per hour. You will receive an invoice from Oddo Design for the additional time/work.
What is "Security Hardening"?
Your WPSimplifyd plan includes a firewall that is configured to make your WordPress website more secure. Other measures are recommended and/or taken, relative to site activity.
What is "Security Monitoring"?
When a hacker tries to guess your WordPress password too many times (a fairly common occurrence), WPSimplifyd is notified and the hacker is temporarily locked out. Repeat offenders are permanently banned from your website. Other precautions may be taken or recommended to harden your website. Your website is also scanned daily by Securi for malware.
How do we get started?
Once you sign up, you will be asked to provide the necessary credentials for accessing your WordPress Dashboard and files. This will require an admin-level account for WordPress and FTP access.
Where is WPSimplifyd physically located?
All work is performed right here in the U.S., just outside of Austin, Texas, by an experienced WordPress designer/developer. WPSimplifyd was started by Oddo Design— a custom WordPress web design and development firm established in 1989.
