I do backups, updates and deal with your host etc on your behalf should things go bad. I also do small tech fixes and so on for a monthly fee but can also do bigger coding work if needed. That service is setup as a monthly fee and gets me there on call should things go wrong saving people from googling for hours and hours trying to fix things themselves.”
