Web Care Plan Terms & Conditions
The Web Care Plan is a month-to-month contract with One Dog Solutions, LLC to provide ongoing maintenance services for your website. This includes, but is not limited to regular backups, updates, licenses, support, security and any edits allowed in the plan you have chosen. Sites not developed by One Dog Solutions may be eligible for Web Care at our discretion after a website audit. Additional charges may be applied for unique configurations.
What's Covered in Our Web Care Plans:
Your website will be hosted on Vultr servers managed by One Dog Solutions. The servers maintain a 99.99% uptime rate and are some of the fastest in the industry. We employ advanced caching, and host your original site in a location nearest your business so it's immediately accessible to your visitors.
At One Dog Solutions, we believe in the 3-2-1 backup strategy. 3 copies of data on two storage mediums and 1 offsite. We take daily snapshots of all of our managed cloud servers. We have an individual backup of your website instance at two separate cloud locations - and also an offsite backup on fast RAID storage. In the case of a website failure, or an oops on a user's part, we've got you covered. We can have your website back up and running in minutes.
We take the security of your website seriously. All of our cloud servers run OS-level firewalls to filter out malicious traffic. We also employ Web Application Firewalls to filter out application-specific traffic. In addition to regular backups, we run regular scans on your site for malware and employ additional WordPress specific security.
With all major open-source CMS solutions, regular updates are also crucial to your site's security and functionality. One Dog Solutions will perform updates to your website for all plugins, themes and any available, stable CMS core updates on a weekly basis.
Premium Plugin Access
One Dog Solutions has invested in premium plugins for use on websites under our Care Plans. You are allowed the use of these plugins on your site as long as a Care Plan subscription is active. If you choose to cancel your Care Plan subscription, One Dog Solutions licenses for premium plugins will be removed and you will be responsible for purchasing those recurring licenses. If a plugin is required for functionality on your site that is unique to you, it may not be covered under the care plan. We will inform you of any additional costs associated with specific premium plugins. You can request a list of plugins using One Dog Solutions licenses at any time by contacting us at email@example.com
