    My web hosting company says that my website is no longer supported and will stop functioning very soon. Apparently I need the Envato Toolkit Plugin otherwise I will completely lose my website content. How much roughly will it cost to have this done does anyone know and who to contact? Thank you.

    Hi Positive...

    That toolkit is free. Your hosting company should be able to help you get it installed.

    It's now called the "Envato Market WordPress plugin" now and you can find info on it here:
    https://envato.com/market-plugin/upgrading/

    You won't lose your website content providing you take a backup of everything which they should be able to show you how to do or do it for you.

    We do this often for many and will bend over backwards to ensure nobody loses anything or has any faulty websites.

    Thanks. The web hosting company (siteground) say they don't do it. How much would you charge to do it?

    You do it yourself. The same as any other plugin.

    I don't know how to back up the website and I don't have the time either for it. I would rather leave it to an IT professional to do for me.

    Sounds like they're feeding you the biggest load of nonsense going. Hardly surprising from Siteground though. (Unless your website is so out of date, it now poses a security risk for them).

    We offer support/maintenance plans on a retainer for businesses where we fully manage any plugin/security updates (etc) if you aren't able to take care of this yourself (if that's of interest).

    Otherwise, as per above, it's a simple plugin install. The Envato Toolkit plugin just allows the Envato website to 'talk' to your website. So presumably, you're using a theme, plugin or something that has been purchased from them.

    You are hosted with Siteground (https://www.siteground.com/) ?? If so then backups are automatic and included in the package (unless you are on some ancient legacy hosting package from the 1990s).
