Support & Maintenance
We routinely provide maintenance and upgrades on all websites we host on our dedicated servers. If you have a support arrangement in place with your website hosting then we will perform minor updates to your website or bug fixes.
For larger updates, or clients who do not have a support agreement in place, or who are hosting their website on non Agentpoint servers then updates/maintenance can be performed at the rates in the next table below.
Our warranty for support and maintenance is limited to websites that are hosted on Agentpoint servers. As soon a site is moved away from Agentpoint servers (our controlled hosting environment) then we do not provide warranty or hold any responsibility to maintain the website. If your site is hosted on Agentpoint servers and you allow 3rd parties access to the website via FTP or WordPress Admin rights, then we are not liable to maintain the website nor guarantee the warranty of the code regardless of whether you have an existing support subscription with us.
If your website code is damaged due to adjustments you or any 3rd party make to the website then we are not responsible to correct the code as part of our support and maintenance. At your request we can fix the code and invoice you for the time taken by our developers and designers to amend the problems caused by yourself or 3rd parties at our then current standard rates.
As we build all sites in the WordPress content management system means we do not own WordPress as it is an open source technology. This means we can’t guarantee your website will not be affected by hackers or third party malicious code. As part of our support and maintenance agreement with you we will remove any malicious code but are not liable for any damages this or any hacker or third party malicious code may cause your business.
Most hackers can access to your website via 3rd party plugins that you install on your website. We at any time reserves the right to disable and remove any 3rd party plugins as we see fit. If these plugins are reactivated and your site is continued to be hacked then we reserve the right to instantly suspend your website without notice.
