Cardinal Acres Web Development can handle the entire process of implementing your web presence starting with your domain name, ending with your website itself and including everything else in between like DNS configuration, email setup, etc. We exclusively use WordPress as the basis for our websites due to it’s ubiquity and user friendliness. Since each project is unique, please contact us and we’ll be happy to prepare a no obligation proposal for your small business or non-profit website.

Website Service Agreements

In addition to creating your website, Cardinal Acres Web Development can also provide the ongoing maintenance for your WordPress-based website to ensure that it remains secure and online. These days your small business’ web presence is vitally important as many people discover and research companies and products via the internet. If your website is unavailable or hacked, you are losing potential customers.

Basic Service Agreements

Our basic service agreements provide the necessary services for you to maintain a secure and up-to-date WordPress website. Most importantly, this means keeping WordPress and all installed plugins and themes current. Rather than blindly pushing the “Update” button in the WordPress dashboard, however; Cardinal Acres Web Development will compatibility test each update in a separate testing environment to ensure it won’t take down your production website.

To the core Basic Service Agreement, you can also add Backups and/or Statistics services. Backups are taken daily and a 90 day archive is retained. Full-featured Statistics allow you to track who visits your website, what pages they are visiting, what products they are purchasing, etc.

Statistics Demo

Cardinal Acres Web Development utilizes the Matomo open-source web statistics package. All your statistics are stored in a database on the Cardinal Acres Web Development server and are kept private. This is in contrast to, for example Google Analytics, where your data is potentially used for marketing and other purposes.

Matomo can compile statistics for both basic website as well as those utilizing e-commerce to give you a detailed overview of how visitors interact with your website. Matomo allows you to:
