Option 1: Help Yourself With Our Emergency WordPress Support Guides

We get it. Before reaching out to an expert for emergency WordPress help, it’s reasonable to want to try and fix your website issues yourself.


That’s why we regularly create guides to help WordPress users troubleshoot and fix common errors on their own time.

Naturally, if you’d prefer an expert to take the reins for you, StateWP is always on hand. Skip to option two in that case.

Option 2: Trust StateWP’s Support Team With Your WordPress Site

When you contact StateWP, emergency support is always on standby. Our team of experts offers quick fixes and long-term solutions, so you’re better protected if something goes wrong again.

Relying on DIY fixes means spending time and effort you could use to run your business better. Plus, as confident as you might feel, what if you simply can’t figure it out?

It’s always good to have a technical safety net. Here’s how we can help you get fixed up and keep your site healthy in the long term.

Emergency 24/7 service

Even if your site goes down at night, it pays to have an emergency expert on hand. It might be one in the morning where you are, but what if you have customers based worldwide?

StateWP’s team runs a 24/7 helpdesk, meaning all you need to do is raise a service request, and we can start working on a fix.

One-day response

StateWP aims to respond to and fix WordPress errors within a day of you raising faults with us. Thanks to our experts based in several time zones around the world, there’s always someone ready to pick up your case.

When you rely on a web host or a non-emergency support service, you could wait days to get your WordPress site back online. That’s serious money lost for any eCommerce site – and a major dent in your reputation in visitors’ eyes.

StateWP’s fast response times help you get back to business before those lost sales start seriously racking up.

Proto dashboard

StateWP’s Proto dashboard offers you a user experience that grants complete oversight of your website’s vitals. There’s no need to juggle different tools and software to manage your:

  • Website security
  • Bug reports
  • Traffic logs
  • Hosting data
  • WordPress plugin information
  • Backups and restore points
  • Databases
  • Monthly website performance

Proto does it all for you. What’s more, you can raise service requests with our experts through Proto directly:

Service request submitted via Proto to resolve an emergency

Then, track your request, and we update you on what happens next. Sit tight, we won’t be long!

24/7 website monitoring and security management

We get it. You need to sleep.

You can’t keep your eyes on your site 24/7, but you know who can? StateWP.

Our experts monitor site health and downtime around the clock, meaning we’re the first line of defense for malware or hacking red flags, and we step in as soon as your website goes down.

We keep your site’s security and WordPress core files fully updated and maintained behind the scenes (as well as continuously running plugin updates). If anything triggers our Spidey senses, we take action and keep you informed.

White-label agency support

If you’re running a WordPress design and marketing agency and are considering adding maintenance to your packages, you can outsource the technical side to our experts and reap extra revenue. Simply sign up as a white-label agency customer to get started.

You can pass on the benefits of proactive WordPress maintenance plans to your customers (such as security updates, uptime monitoring, site analytics, and database management) without needing to train anyone.

Fair pricing

We know how valuable emergency support is for our customers, so we price and package our services competitively.

StateWP runs three pricing tiers payable monthly and annually, with emergency support from our Starter package upwards. We’ve made it easy to see what’s included and how much you save.

Here’s what you can expect to pay per month, billed annually:

  • Starter: $159 per month
  • Premium: $199 per month
  • Elite: $499 per month

Although some WordPress emergency support companies offer cheaper starting packages, StateWP provides a unique approach to emergency 24/7 support at each level.

That means we’re constantly monitoring your site – and, unlike some providers, we don’t cap the number of times you can reach out for help!

Where’s the value in a service cap when you never know when an emergency might happen?

With StateWP, the price you pay per month or year entitles you to service requests. Whether you need help fixing visual issues or 400 or 500 errors plague you, you can rest easy knowing our developers have your back.

Dedicated account manager

With some WordPress emergency support services, you’re passed from one agent to another with zero consistency. That’s pretty annoying – especially if you have to explain your WordPress issues from scratch every time.

We provide you with a dedicated account manager as your single point of contact. That means you can always pick up where you left off, and it’s easy to get to know your developer.

Conversation between client and developer

A dedicated account manager who understands your cases can help resolve your problems faster (and even make helpful recommendations, such as technical SEO fixes).

Hosting support

Moving from one host to another can be tricky if you’re new to the process. However, it’s always a good idea to shop around for hosting providers – never settle, for example, on a slow shared server. You’re at the mercy of other site owners’ errors and serious slowdowns.

StateWP helps you manage your hosting and even recommends providers where appropriate. If you decide to proceed, we will migrate you to our approved hosts at no extra cost.

If hosting problems are causing website emergencies such as poor security or performance, that’s another weight off your mind.

Automated backups

We always recommend you set up backups regularly if you experience any of the errors we listed earlier. Having a save point makes it easy to go back in time and investigate problems.

Delegating to our team eliminates the hassle of remembering to back up and finding somewhere to store your data safely. Our team can access your backups anytime through Proto, so if emergencies occur in the future, simply log in, raise a ticket explaining the situation, and we’ll restore your site within a day.

Performance optimization

Our developers know more than a few tricks to help WordPress sites perform at their best. Regardless of whether or not you’re experiencing an emergency, we work behind the scenes to ensure your site is efficient, responsive, and up to date with the latest core updates.

Speed optimization is another hassle off your plate that you can delegate to our team, meaning you can continue managing your business while your website delivers a fantastic visitor experience.

    WordPress Emergency Support FAQs

    Let’s close with a few common questions our customers have regarding WordPress emergency support.

    What is an emergency WordPress service?

    An emergency WordPress service is a team you can call to get your website back online fast. For example, if your website shows a blank screen, you can contact an emergency service for a quick fix. However, make sure to compare WP emergency support plans, as some might only fix short-term issues.

    It’s better value to partner with expert developers who can help you maintain and protect your site long-term.

    Can someone help me with WordPress?

    Yes, if you need help with a WordPress.org site, you can contact a developer for WP emergency support and advice or contact your hosting provider.

    If you’re running a WordPress.com site, you can get help by emailing WordPress directly or using the live chat service if you’re on an annual Creator or Entrepreneur plan.

    Does WordPress.com have 24/7 support?

    WordPress.com users registered to Creator, Entrepreneur, and Legacy Pro plans can access 24/7 customer support. You may need to pay annually to access this service. Annual Explorer customers, meanwhile, can access 24/7 support Monday through Friday. For WordPress.org support, speaking to an expert developer is most efficient.
