In mere seconds, hackers can view your administrator usernames. They can insert malicious code with little effort. Even your staff could upload malware-infected documents on your website without realizing it. Your backups may be out of date or unusable. On top of those risks, chances are that you have no idea how your site is performing day by day.
That’s where ReBoot comes in. For as little as $99/month, we protect the integrity of your brand online. ReBoot monitors your site, backs up your content, lowers the risk of your site being compromised and automatically sends you daily reports on your site’s effectiveness. With our Gold level package, you even get compelling new content every month to maximize the impact of your brand your and your search engine rankings.
It’s a maintenance program designed by a business expert for business people, around the goal of brand integrity. No technical mumbo jumbo, just solid and useful support from people who understand business and branding.
Most websites are launched with a genuine desire to keep them updated. But it rarely happens. Small business sites get stagnant, with very few updates, unmonitored for security problems. Server software gets updated regularly to fix security holes but the business owners are completely unaware that the old software is full of holes that hackers love.
When the site gets hacked, many business owners have no idea it happened until their entire site gets blacklisted and taken offline. And then it can take months to restore and cost thousands of dollars, while your brand has no Internet presence at all. Compromised, your server can be used to send spam that originated from your brand, can redirect visitors to other websites, and can damage your reputation in many ways.
Don’t put yourself in that situation. For just a few dollars a month, less than it would cost you to hire a consultant for a single hour, you can protect your online brand. Plus, ReBoot offers much more than just security.
You’ll never know you were hit. Small commands are placed into your website code that quietly activate to send out spam or redirect traffic from your site. This can go on for months without being noticed. It can damage your brand reputation and lead to your site being blacklisted by major Internet providers and search engines, which can take weeks or months to resolve.
You need to monitor your site regularly. That’s where ReBoot comes in.
Think your website is properly backed up? Would you bet your business on it? Most small business sites are not backed up at all, and those that are typically place the backup files on the same server that the site lives on. If that gets compromised, so does your backup. ReBoot includes multiple simultaneous backup solutions including offsite storage for the ultimate peace of mind.
Even sites with little traffic are sought out by hacker bots these days, because they can be used as launching pads for spam attacks that ultimately come back to haunt your brand reputation. ReBoot includes a sophisticated security system that locks out known IP addresses automatically and can be ramped up as needed to full 2-factor authentication.
You want to know how your website is performing, just as you need to understand other metrics of your business. We send a detailed analysis every 24 hours by Email so that you can see your performance on a day-to-day basis, allowing you to make rapid decisions. You'll see your visitor counts, new vs. repeat visitors, page views, bounce rates, which pages were visited and more. The report even graphically illustrates day-to-day performance.
Spam is a pervasive problem and a threat to the credibility of your brand. Spambots are getting increasingly clever in their ability to present feedback and comments that look like a human being wrote them. ReBoot includes Akismet, the only truly effective anti-spam tool, at no extra cost.
Server software, plugins and themes are updated constantly. These updates are used to fix security holes, improve functionality, adapt to changing technology and to clean up bugs. Updating when these are released is essential, but this needs to be done carefully to avoid compatibility problems that can break your site. ReBoot Silver and Gold programs include updates.
Constant updates and improvement of your site content dramatically improves your search engine ranking. It also sends a message of credibility to your customers and prospects, showing that you are serious about your business and a brand that can be trusted. That means increased sales. ReBoot Gold includes monthly updates and can optionally include an outbound marketing program.
Laocoön warned the Trojans that their innocuous gift from the Greeks was dangerous, but they brought it into their city walls anyway. No matter how stringent your security is, there is always a risk that your website will be compromised. Anyone who really wants in will find a way. ReBoot includes a scanning service at no extra charge that scans your site constantly, looking for malware that may have been placed on your server. We also put human eyes on your server every month to look for things automated software might miss.

* Some conditions applyWordpress is updated constantly. Failing to install those updates can put your site at risk, because many of these updates are done specifically to close security holes as they are discovered. In addition, plugins and your WordPress theme can get out of date quickly, often on a weekly basis. The same risks apply if you don’t update these. These updates should be done by web professionals because the updates can break your site due to incompatibilities. Even updating items in the wrong order can lead to the dreaded WordPress “white screen of death.” Value of this service: $150-$300/month Protect all your data properly.
