SiteButler is designed to be an efficient, reliable, and cost-effective way have the peace of mind that your website is safe and up to date, without having to become a system administrator
For $35 per month, you will receive a fully managed service that will backup your website, install critical updates, and (like a good butler) keep everything running smoothly. Specifically, we will perform the following services:
- Ongoing Backups
At least once per day, we will make a backup copy of your content (posts, pages, products, events, locations, etc – everything in the wordpress database), along with your files and media, and your themes. These backups are stored off-site (meaning NOT on your web server) so they can be restored even if your server “dies” or you have to change to a new hosting server.
- Plugin Updates
Once a month a human operator will check your site for updates and patches of the main WordPress software as well as all plugins. This operator will review those updates to ensure there are no potential conflicts, and will then installs them. After installation, the operator will check every page of your website to ensure that nothing has been negatively affected.
- Plugin Evaluation
During the monthly update, if we find a plugin that has become seriously compromised (it’s a security risk or is negatively affecting the display of your website) we will notify you immediately
- Quarterly Report
Every quarter, we will provide you with a summary of the work we’ve performed and the status of your site. We’ll tell you when we updated your website each month, which plugins you are running, and whether any of your plugins or software is nearing “end of life” and should be replaced.

Your SiteButler plan also includes these services on an as-needed basis:
Should your website experience problems, we will restore it (either to the original server or to a new web hosting service).
- Data Delivery
On request, we will provide you with a single compressed archive file that contains your entire website. This file will be downloadable from a secure, password-protected area on AdatoSystems.com.
- Plugin Remediation
We will fix problems with out-of-date or corrupted plugins which have been identified as part of SiteButler‘s Plugin Evaluation or Quarterly Report options.
