"SL brought our website back to life. The phone rings more often with callers saying they found us online! Further, the contacts through the web email form have picked up also.

A website can be pretty and sexy but does not make the phone ring. SL was able to accomplish both, a job well done by David and his team."

"Love, love, love Shepherds Loft. I knew next to nothing about web design and what it actually takes to build a website. David put everyone on my team that I would need right down to giving me someone who would keep up with my social media needs. Need a logo? Yep, he’s got someone!

Thanks to all of you at Shepherds Loft, just as you predicted the hits started coming! Thank you for your kind patience with me as I learned to settle back and just let the process work. Would recommend you guys to anyone."

Website FAQs

I want to get more clarity about your services and fees beyond hosting.

WordPress Maintenance includes the hosting, support and licenses on preferred products.

Is training included

No, but we do include both a basic set of video tutorials and Divi tutorials to help you learn. We are also glad to help answer any questions or find video tutorials for you. 

How does maintenance work?

 WordPress maintenance is sold in 1/2 hour units, to do whatever you want. We will do our best to estimate as we go, so small tasks are ok. If you believe you need more help we have a $250/month maintenance plan that includes 3 hours per month. This will put you on a budget and includes any website changes, additions, SEO, lead capture, etc.

Why don't I need an SSL certificate and will the site be http: or https:?

You no longer need to renew your SSL license. Our managed WordPress hosting includes a free SSL certificate for every website. You website will be https://

Can I point or redirect other domain names to my website?

Yes, and there are two options here. You can point the A record to our IP address but you need to provide us a list of domain names. You can also “forward” your domain name to your primary domain name.

Do you provide FTP access?

No, we don’t normally provide FTP access, specifically to the production server, however, given some time we could set this up for you. We can also offer you a development area so that you can push new designs from development to production without FTP access.

How often do you run upgrades?

We upgrade everything everyday, including WP core, DB, themes, plugins, and PHP. NOTE: any modifications to Theme or plugins files will be overwritten.

What else does your WordPress Maintenance include?

Hosting! And, we run back ups daily, clean/optimize weekly, scan for viruses weekly and have two uptime monitors on every website

How do you deliver emails from forms?

We use a third party service called Sendgrid to deliver emails from forms.

Can I transfer my website to another hosting company?

Yes, and we will help you. However, we own all licenses to themes and plugins which are not transferrable.

Does it cost anything to launch or migrate my website?

We have a full quality checklist for every website we make live. If our assistance is needed then you need to book an appointment from the website. There is a minimum 2 hour charge for launching a website either from development or another server.
