I've recently moved my website (c/w online Woocommerce shop) to a Wordpress platform and I have a chap helping me do so which cost getting on for £2K (including one years website and E mail hosting) though I did most of the work once shown how to. However, after the "moved" site's been live for a few months I am being asked to pay for a "updates maintenance contract", at £250 a year...... This is to install all the updates as and when they come out "and test them". Bearing in mind I'm already paying him to host the site and this fee wasn't mentioned in the initial quote, is that really reasonable ? If the site is working is it really necessary to install every update anyway because he offers a service to install all current updates for £35 He is also offering "enhanced back up" service at another £200 a year, is this all "normal" ? Surely the site should be backed up at the server ? I don't know much about Wordpress but my last site was Webplus. It never lost significant functionality as a result of using "an out of date version", and when I updated (every 5 years or so) it was a simple job anyway.
