We also include hosted Microsoft Exchange Email and Symantec Endpoint Virus & Spam Protection for your desktop or laptop PC with our subscriptions.
- Do you make changes or update content on WordPress websites?
We do not make any content changes, additions or subtractions to WordPress websites, however we have plenty of partners we work with and are happy to point you towards the best developer for your needs. Contact us today and let us know what you are trying to accomplish.

- I am a WordPress developer, why should I use Wurdy?
As a WordPress developer, you know the importance of keeping WP sites up to date, secure, backed up and free of junk. Not only do we take care of all the tedious work that you never get paid by your customers to perform, we will pay you a hefty monthly residual commission to refer your customers to Wurdey. Why you may ask? Because we were once WordPress developers too and we learned way to fast that there was no money and lots of time wasted on these services.
- I have the plugin installed but my site is not updating automatically?
Did you purchase a subscription to Wurdey? If so please contact us via a support ticket or live chat and we will get you operational.
