Welcome GoWP as gold sponsor!

Hi Everyone! We’re excited to be sponsoring WordCamp Boston and look forward to meeting you on Saturday. This will be our first visit to Boston so if you have suggestions for things to do or where to eat, please let us know!

GoWP is a premium WordPress support business that formally launched last month. We offer monthly support plans that include:

  • WordPress Core & Plugin Updates
    Whenever a new release is ready for WordPress core or any of your plugins, we’ll update it for you. You’ll never have to worry about your site being outdated again.
  • Daily Off-Site Backups
    We’ll backup your site daily and keep your files securely stored off-site on Amazon S3. Restore your site to a previous version anytime.
  • Security Monitoring
    Automated security scans powered by Sucuri. Most plans also include server-side scanning and unlimited malware cleanup.
  • Help from WP Experts
    Our experienced team knows WordPress inside and out. We’ve built and supported hundreds of sites, both large and small. Call, email or chat with us to get the help you need.

Based in Atlanta, GoWP is a service of Southpoint Media, a web services firm with more than a decade of experience.

We’re officially sponsoring the breakfast starting at 8am (which is ironic since we’re definitely not morning people) but we’ll be there all day so stop by and say hi!
