Introducing the BritWeb Support Portal

We’re proud to launch a new support portal for our clients to help them make better use of their website and support hours.

This month, BritWeb’s WordPress clients can benefit from the launch of our support portal. The new platform has been developed to give our clients a range of tools to help them easily make quick changes to their website without having to wait for developers input.

For a monthly fixed fee, the BritWeb support service gives our clients unique access to their own dedicated area, designed to help them update pages, posts and imagery on their website. The service is aided by the BritWeb support team who will ensure that our clients websites are properly maintained and supported, meaning it’s kept secure and running at peak performance.

What’s included in our clients support package?

In addition to our clients having access to this unique portal, our support team manage the below for our each website we support:

  • WordPress version updates
  • Plugin updates
  • Daily cloud backups
  • Backup restorations
  • Site security
  • Uptime and problem monitoring
  • Monthly site report
  • Malware removal
  • Web hosting
  • SSL Certificate + set up
  • Tech support

What’s changed?

Historically, we have spent a lot of our clients allocated support package making changes to content on their site, which could be easily done if our clients had the relevant know how.

WordPress is constantly changing, so outdated versions could put a website at risk of hacking or malware. Our priority is to ensure the performance and efficiency of our clients websites is not compromised and is technically managed to the highest standard.

Therefore, content changes now fall outside of our standard technical support and hosting package and are completed via a change request within the client portal.

Need further assistance?

All of our current support clients can request training free of charge to understand how to make content and image changes to their website. Simply contact us via support@britweb.co.uk to arrange a time that suits.

The cost of our support and hosting package is frozen for all current clients until January 2021.
