    Although these are mostly all very reasonable prices, I guess I don’t see the reason a developer (most of us here) would have much use for this. Unless, this is for dev’s who just want to create a site, hand it over to their client and be done with it?

    There’s a typo in your first entry. It isn’t $99/hour but $99/month. That’s a huge difference 😉

    Jean, this if the first time I’ve heard of WP Upkeep, but +1 Maintainn and WPMaintainer. Good folks behind those.

    I think you should also include WPSiteCare and WPValet. Both are run by people I respect and are really in-tune with the inner workings of WordPress:

    It´s not a typo, Jun. Unless the typo is in http://wpmaintainer.com/join/, but it is not on Jean´s post.
    Wpmantainer claim that $99/hour is nearly half their normal rate!

    How does this differ from WPEngine hosting? Don’t they offer all this stuff already as do many other wordpress-optimised hosts? Please explain the difference and value here. Makes no sense.

    WP Mule is another good one (wpmule.com)
    Ran by a buddy of mine and I think it’s quite a bit less expensive.

    There is another WP repair service called Fix My WP at fixmywp.com 🙂
    I’ve used their services more than once so I can vouch for them.

    Hi Jean,

    I would recommend adding Codeable to this list. You can find us at https://codeable.io. We’re a dedicated WordPress only development platform with 95 pre-scanned and pre-approved WordPress developers offering their services to individuals and businesses (88% of them are based in the US and Europe). We’ve had more than 7,700 tasks posted and 98,9% of these have received 5 out of 5-star ratings with awesome reviews to our experts.

    Regards,
    Per Esbensen

    Hey Jean,

    In 2013 we established WP Copilot for the Australian WordPress market. It’s been very rewarding to help Aussie clients continuously improve their websites and sales.

    Cheers

    I checked all companies listed above, that’s all nice and sweet, but I prefer to deal with individuals not companies because in that way I’m getting the maximum attention from the developer and it’s in his best interest to get the things done.
    Another good alternative that I can recommend is Nick from wp-expert.net. One man army, friendly, affordable and reliable.

    I’ve gone through a few different wordpress support companies in the last two years. At this point I have to recommend Total WP Support at http://www.totalwpsupport.com – they are relatively new on the scene but Im finding they offer very high quality support at a very affordable price. Worth a look.

    Great list, most of these guys are still the big players in the scene after a year and a bit since you posted the article. Naturally we’d have included ourselves on there too (https://wpnexus.io) but then would say that!
    Good article though, thanks for sharing.

    I really don’t see the point in paying this much money each month and only 30 minutes fix is included.

    If there is going to be an issue I’m really worried about I don’t think it can be fixed within 30 minutes. Somehow these businesses are doing well. Honestly I don’t see the value in it.

      @sandroaaran you are looking at it only from your point of view. WordPress run 25% of the entire web, I’m pretty sure millions of them don’t have a clue about creating a page in WordPress.
      Probably those are their target market.

      I mostly get on demand services from these guys http://wpdart.com so far no complaints.

    This list is indeed getting very long. But I would like to introduce and add http://webheroeshq.com. We offer one plan for $69 per month that includes everything for basic website maintenance. Add-ons a re available at a heavily discounted rate and each account is assigned its own WordPress Support specialist.

    Hi, thanks for this amazing article.

    I just want to share a short feedback of my career. Besides working for Codeable as an expert, I’ve started a maintenance service last year and now I have more than 30 clients, that pays me 99$ monthly to take care of their WordPress installations.

    I’d like to advise everybody to offer this to their clients. It’s a good option to get predictable income monthly.

    I don’t understand why people are willing to pay so much for WordPress management?

    There are companies like SiteUpdatePro.com that handle upgrades and offer unlimited support for just $6.95/month. Plus, they even offer a 30-day free trial so you can test their services before paying anything…

    These are solid service companies. WP Curve was probably the best before they were bought by Godaddy. I used them a few times before, but now I’m with webmasteronsite.com. They cost A LOT more than these options, but as a small biz owner I need to be able to email/text/call and have things resolved fast. I get what i pay for i guess 🙂

    Hey!
    Great post!
    Those are some really good WordPress companies that you have mentioned. The most famous ones.
    We did something similar. We researched on WordPress support companies and created a list of 30 WordPress Maintenance Providers along with their price range and services they offer!

    Here’s a link to it: https://www.pixelmattic.com/blog/wordpress-maintenance-providers/

    I hope this would help your audience have better options 🙂
    I would love to know what you think about it!

    Jean, thanks for writing.

    I have heard great stuff about WP Site Care, The WP Butler, and WP Radius.

    Though admittedly biased, I recommend SkyrocketWP (https://skyrocketwp.com) for all-in-one WordPress maintenance, service, and lightning fast, ultra-secure, managed WordPress hosting.

    The hosting component undoubtedly precludes some would-be clients, but the clients we have polled love having everything under one roof. For them, it means reduced potential for finger-pointing, hassle, and confusion. If they have any issue, they call us. Simple as that.

    That said, despite having 100+ clients, we receive less than 1 support request per quarter… total. In the end, it just works.

    Hopefully that whets your appetite enough to check it out.

    Jean, I’d love your thoughts. Thanks!

    The absolute best alternative to WP Curve (now that GoDaddy purchased them) is RipplePop, https://ripplepop.com. It’s a WordPress support company in Denver, Colorado. I started it with my friend Michael because we’ve been doing WordPress support for a long time.

    RipplePop has a $79/month support option and a $189/month support option. Both include unlimited changes to your WordPress site.

    The major difference between RipplePop and WP Curve/Other WP Services is that Michael and I don’t accept more than 150 sites at one time. This means when you sign up you will always get excellent support because we are not chasing new customers.

    Thanks for this post, Jean! You start by asking, “Looking to outsource maintenance of your WordPress websites?” Almost all businesses should answer that with, “Yes!” It makes more sense for businesses to concentrate on serving their customers than stumbling their way through WordPress updates, backups, security, etc. Since 2010, we at OptimWise have proudly served businesses that realize that. I appreciate your spreading the word about the importance of WordPress maintenance!

    I’m surprised that 24x7wpsupport.com isn’t included in this list. I’ve been utilizing their services now for 6+ months and the team over there is incredibly resourceful, flexible, and responsive.

    Not trashing any of the other services, just very surprised that they didn’t make the cut.

    The cheapest plan for ongoing support is about $6.67/ hr and one time help is just $29. Besides that they have Telephone, Email, Chat Support 24×7.

    I’m surprised Bochi Web is not on this list. They offer probably the best deal I’ve seen. $39.95 a month unlimited updates and support. I have yet to have been charged anything extra and I sent them a ton of work.
