Need more? Just let us know.
No. However, we do ask that you sign our Terms of Service agreement. But, you do not have to sign a contract. Billing happens monthly (or we can bill you quarterly to help you shuffle less paper) and you can cancel anytime.
Yes, if you sign up and decide you want or need to change your plan, feel free to send in a support ticket and we will upgrade or downgrade your package accordingly.
No. We offer free website transfers with every package. You will need to provide us with your web host login credentials, domain registrar login credentials, and WordPress login credentials. Once we have that information, we will get the site transferred over and setup properly. The best part is that there will be little, if any, site downtime.
With the Advanced and Premium plans, your website will be backed up using Amazon Web Services. Each nightly backup will be sent to two different data centers, each at a different location in the United States. If one of the data centers has technical issues, your backups will still be available at the other datacenter. This will help you sleep better.
Sure, we can do that. If your WordPress website is hacked at the time you sign up, we will clean it up, apply any needed updates, and get it moved over to our secure servers.
Before any update is made, we will perform testing to ensure your plugin updates and WordPress are all compatible. If your website does experience issues after an update, your website will be reverted back to its previous working state.
The advanced security monitoring will alert us if any of your core WordPress website files are changed (this could indicate malicious code was added to your website). The security monitoring will also protect you if someone repeatedly tries to login to your your admin page with multiple passwords, someone starts a DDOS attack against your site, someone tries to gain unauthorized access to your server, or if someone tries to gain unauthorized access to your website files.
Yes it will. There are security measures in place on a server level for each package. This will keep your server secure. Since we will also take care of all core WordPress and plugin updates, your website will be secure up to a point. The 24/7 advanced security monitoring does add additional layers of protection though. Think of the difference as someone who just locks the front door of their house when they leave compared to someone who has a full blown state of the art advance home security system.
Absolutely. With a VPS server, you’re guaranteed a specific amount of CPU and RAM resources. With shared hosting such as (Bluehost, Godaddy, Hostgator etc. etc.), if there are 100 people on one server, one website could potentially use all of the server’s resources, leaving you with very little resources and a poor performing website. Our servers are also built from the ground up specifically to load WordPress websites as fast as possible. Our advanced server configuration plus the CDN will make your website feel super fast.
Definitely. For example, it’s possible that a hacker could gain access to your website from hacking a completely different website on a shared server. With your own individual VPS server, your website is completely isolated from all other websites. It’s also easier to add much more advanced security measures to VPS servers than shared servers.
The staging server offers you a perfect copy of your live website to make changes on prior to deploying those changes to your live site. Once we’ve completed your changes, we can then send the changes to the live server. This means, if we need to install a plugin or make code level changes, we can do so on your staging server first and don’t have to worry about breaking your live site.
Coding hours cover any website requests you have, above and beyond your hosting and maintenance package. For example, if you need a new plugin installed and customized, that would fall under your plan’s coding hours. If you would like a new page created with an image gallery, that would fall under your plan’s coding hours. Basically, if you want anything done on your website we can do it for you under the coding hours available in your plan. If what you are requesting will take longer than your package offers, we will provide an estimate before proceeding with production.
While the Premium plan will be more than enough for most clients, we realize you just might need more. If you know for a fact that you need more server resources, feel free to let us know and we can offer a customized package that will cover your needs. If you sign up for the Premium plan, and we see that your server isn’t handling your traffic, we will reach out and offer you a customized plan or offer suggestions for other solutions.

With Kerry and the entire Resonate Group®, you get a team of folks who are committed to combining strategy with creative.

They know that both must work in tandem, and they have a comprehensive approach to gain full clarity.
In the end, the Resonate® delivers a detailed plan for organizations to implement with success.Joe DudeckPrincipal, Keyhole Marketing
