Managed Web Hosting & Support
Proactive Hosting, Support & CMS Care Package
Starting @ $299.00/mo
This is a comprehensive website hosting & 24/7 service bundle. We are not "hands off" when we support your site. We will update plugins, apply security patches, run regular virus and malware scans, and ensure your site is performing correctly.
WEBSITE HOSTING & MAINTENANCE
Let Us Become Your I/T Department!
For a professional web presence, a stable, reliable, and secure solution for hosting and support is critical. LCM provides ongoing website hosting and support plans tailored to your organization's needs. We cover all of the key elements to keep your website operating reliably, including:
Cloud Website Hosting
LCM provides stable, high-performing, and resilient web hosting that won't go down on you. Ever. No more sharing system resources with thousands of unknown parties (as is the case on a shared hosting plan); we only host a small group of clients per virtual machine for a safe and stable environment in the "LCM Cloud."
Troubleshooting & Priority Support 24/7/365
LCM staff remains on-call 24/7/365 to troubleshoot and resolve any bugs or errors that impact your site's functionality, appearance, or performance.
Proactive Security Updates
If you value your reputation, online security must be a top priority. It's also one of the areas that is nearly impossible to stay on top of "part time." Let our team of dilligent professionals handle your security needs and ensure your site remains online, locked down, and un-hackable. We will install and configure multiple firewalls; we will regularly update and patch your software; we will scan your system/website for vunerabilities on a regular basis.
Wordpress Core and Plugin Upgrades
Wordpress is probably the most ubiquitous open-source CMS in existance today. And we know it inside-and-outside! We'll be responsible for regularly updating your site's core WP install as well as upgrading plugins, themes, and test to ensure the site always works as expected.
Site Administration & CMS Updates
LCM will be responsible for ensuring that the site's content management system is up to date and has the proper plugins to support your site's functionality and reliable operation. We primarily leverage the WordPress CMS, but as/if needed can manage most software you wish.
Performance Tuning and Optimization
Your site's performance plays a significant role in its SEO rank as well as customer perception of your brand. LCM will fine tune and optimize your site and its configuration for optimal speed and performance.
Your website's data, files, and codebase will be backed up to multiple locations (e.g. locally and Amazon S3 Cloud) to ensure peace of mind in the event of an "oops" moment or a disaster recovery situation. Backups are daily, weekly, and monthly.
Template Edits & Site Modifications
LCM can help you perform basic edits to you site templates, structure, and/or functional elements that are not accessible or easily managed. That said, if you want us to do/manage everything on your site, also check out our Website Maintenance Packages.
Dedicated Account Contact
You will be assigned a primary contact who will serve as the account manager for all support requests as well as providing project management for more involved development tasks.
Using top-tier server monitoring tools, LCM will constantly ping your site on a continual basis to flag operational errors or resource issues. We also install Google Webmaster Tools to identify any issues with search engine indexing or other errors that could impact the site's visibility and/or user experience.
Content Edits, Site Structure, & Navigation Management
LCM can assist you in maintaining your site's content and global site navigation structure. We'll support basic updates and edits as necessary to accommodate updated copy, new site pages, and/or architecture changes. But if you wish for us to do/manage every aspect of your site, consider one of our higher-tiered Website Maintenance Packages.
Virus Remediation Assistance
LCM will not let you out to pasture like sheep among wolves. We know web security can be daunting and modern viruses and malware are scary! This package is proactive, meaning we will continuously scan your site for threats, viruses, and backdoor scripts. Moreover, hosting your website allows our technical team to immediately install software to stop problems before they occur -- and keep hackers at bay.

LCM will remain as a committed web and marketing partner to collaborate on strategic web development, marketing roadmap planning, I/T best practices, or other related initiatives.
