About Seguru

We provide WordPress + WooCommerce solutions and strategy for brands and organizations with a growth mindset - focused on performance, strong SEO foundations, resiliency, business continuity and rock-solid security 💪

What Seguru Provides


The fastest servers and tech stacks available, located as close as possible to your primary market(s) combined with onsite performance optimization from our WordPress gurus.

Rock-solid Security

Each day the average website is under repeated opportunistic bot brute force and security vulnerability attacks. Not to mention focused DDoS (distributed denial-of-service), plugin vulnerability and ransomware attacks. We provide DDoS mitigation, firewalls and hardened servers with Fail2Ban, malware detection and AV, per site isolation of processes and more.


For sites that need to stay available with the shortest downtime in the unlikely event of a primary server outage, we offer website failover protection at different geographic locations and with alternate providers. Note that this is included on some plans and optional on others.

Multi-tiered Backups

Most hosting companies provide site backups on the same server as the live site. These are good for minor issues, usually, errors that happen during updates or user errors. Potentially they will then provide server-level backups in another location.With Seguru, we start at two backups daily to separate locations in addition to the on-server backup and can go all the way to hourly backups across multiple cloud storage providers and even air-gapped offline backups for extra protection.

Business Continuity & Peace of Mind

If a slow website or site downtime isn’t an option. If you’re sick of having to stay on top of WordPress core and plugin updates or worried about your site’s security and customer data, then Seguru could be worthwhile for your business or organization. We’ve experienced the frustrations and built the platform for us and our clients.

A Digital Growth Partner

Our goal is to support your growth online through providing class-leading WordPress solutions including strategy, consulting and hosting. From hundreds of visitors a month to millions, we have the experience to ensure that your website will grow and scale in line with your brand or organization.

Seguru Service Agreement

Terms of Service

IntroductionAlthough there is also some unavoidable standardized legalese at various places in the document which our attorney required, in this document we try to write everything in plain English. To do this, we frequently use terms like “we” and “you.” “We,” “Us,” “Our,” and “The Company” means SEGURU DIGITAL PTY LTD, a corporation registered in the State of New South Wales, Australia and operating from New South Wales, Australia and Queensland, Australia. “You,” “Your,” “Customer” or “Client” in this document is you, our Client.Current Hourly RateThroughout this document, reference is made to our current hourly rate. This rate is defined as our hourly rate that is in place at the time a service is requested, not at the time this agreement is signed. We will provide you with our current hourly rate upon request.Availability and CommunicationWe are available via email and phone Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Fridays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm AEST time. Our normal response time is one business day, though our response time may vary. We do not work on weekends or holidays.Phone and email are the primary means of communication accepted for our work together. While you can reach us via mobile phone, text message, social media, or instant/private messaging (like Facebook Messenger), we can not guarantee response times via these platforms since we cannot track these requests as a team.For emergency support, we are contactable 24/7 and will respond to requests received based on the urgency of the matter. If the request is deemed a non-emergency request, we will respond based on normal support request times. An emergency is defined as your website going down or a critical part of your site not functioning. We have constant uptime monitoring of all sites on the Seguru network and respond preemptively to mitigate and solve issues proactively where possible.Website HostingOur Website Management Service includes website hosting. If you elect not to host on our server, we cannot be responsible for the speed of your website, the performance of any of your website features, security certificates for your website, the uptime of your website, or any other hosting related matter.FIXING ANY PROBLEMS RELATED TO WEB HOSTING, OR PROJECT DELAYS RELATED TO WEB HOSTING ON A SERVER OTHER THAN OUR OWN IS BILLABLE AT OUR CURRENTLY HOURLY RATE.We use commercially reasonable efforts to make sites that we host available 99.9% of the time during each monthly billing cycle. If we are unable to meet this service level, you will be eligible to receive a credit to apply to future billing cycles based upon the unavailability for that month.For the purposes of this agreement, unavailability means that either your website is unresponsive, or your website returns a server error response to valid user requests for more than 120 seconds of consecutive requests, and in all cases that the unavailability is not because of local, regional, national or international outages.Unavailability that is a result of scheduled maintenance is excluded from these conditions and will not be considered for service credit calculations. Scheduled maintenance is defined as maintenance that is announced at least 2 days in advance, and does not exceed one hour in any month. Typically, scheduled maintenance occurs in off-peak hours (usually in the early morning).Service credits will be calculated as a percentage of the bill for the billing cycle that the unavailability occurred. The percentage for the credit will be calculated by dividing the number of minutes of unavailability by the total number of minutes in that billing cycle. THE CUSTOMER MUST REQUEST SERVICE CREDITS WITHIN 7 DAYS OF THE UNAVAILABILITY OCCURRING.Website Management ServiceOur Website Management includes website hosting, website software updates, website backups, and website security.Website SecurityOur lockdown protocol hardens the WordPress system to make it more resistant to the actions of hackers. We employ industry-leading security software that actively guards your website against hack attempts at multiple levels in the WordPress system.Website BackupsYour website’s files and database will be backed up automatically each day your website has activity (if your website does not have activity, there is no need for a backup to occur). This backup is stored in our cloud data vault where we typically retain the previous 30 backups for your site.Secondary external backups are also made on a daily basis to an external cloud storage provider and are stored for a minimum of seven days depending on the plan level.Software UpdatesEach week, at our discretion, we will apply available updates for the WordPress core software, your theme files, and your plugin files. We perform these updates for the items that appear in the “Updates” area of your WordPress dashboard. We also watch WordPress industry security news and proactively perform these updates more frequently during times of enhanced threat levels.While it is impossible to guarantee that your site will never be hacked, all of these techniques make your website a more difficult target for hackers. In addition, it is well known that hackers tend to exploit easier targets first – sites without security measures in place. However, in the event that your site is hacked, we will restore it to pre-hack condition at no additional cost either by restoring a site backup or performing a malware cleanup at our discretion.Restoring BackupsShould your site become compromised by a hack or if your site becomes inoperable because of user error, we will restore a backup for you.If the restorations are the result of a hack, there is no limit to the number of restorations we will perform for you under this service.If the restorations are due to user error, we will perform a maximum of 2 restorations in any 30-day period.Additional user error-related restorations will be performed at our current hourly rate with a one-hour minimum.Premium (Paid) Themes and PluginsMany websites use themes and/or plugins that require the payment of a recurring license fee to maintain access to ongoing software updates. We have secured appropriate licensing for many of these.If we have appropriate licenses for the themes and/or plugins used by your website, the cost for recurring license fees are included in your Website Management Services, and licensing will be maintained for you as long as you are an active subscriber to our Website Management Services.If your website uses premium themes and/or plugins and we do not have appropriate licensing, the responsibility is yours for maintaining the appropriate licensing to ensure the availability of updates.We will advise you of the themes and/or plugins for which you will need to maintain licensing and assist you as needed in the process of obtaining them.WE CANNOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR PROBLEMS SUCH AS BUT NOT LIMITED TO HACKS, INOPERABILITY OR INTERCOMPATIBILITY THAT ARISE FROM PREMIUM PLUGINS WHICH YOU CHOOSE NOT TO LICENSE AND ARE OUT OF DATE.Plugin CompatibilityIf an update to a plugin creates conflicts or causes issues with the functionality of your website, we will consult with you to determine the best course of action. Typically, we will remove the offending plugin and replace it with a similar plugin or other programming. If the time required to resolve a plugin compatibility issue exceeds 1 hour, additional time will be billable at our current hourly rate.IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM US IF YOUR SITE IS EXPERIENCING PROBLEMS AND NEEDS ATTENTION.IF YOU ELECT NOT TO PURCHASE OUR WEBSITE MANAGEMENT SERVICE, THE TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY IS YOURS FOR PERFORMING BACKUPS AND KEEPING WORDPRESS (AND ITS THEMES AND PLUGINS) UPDATED.Payment and Cancellation of Website Management ServicesPayment for Website Management Services is due on the first day of the billing period in which that service will be provided.You may cancel website management services with a 30-day notice. WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS ON WEBSITE MANAGEMENT SERVICES.IF YOU ELECT TO DISCONTINUE WEBSITE MANAGEMENT SERVICES, THE TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY IS YOURS FOR PERFORMING BACKUPS AND KEEPING ALL COMPONENTS OF YOUR WEBSITE BACKED UP, SECURED, AND UPDATED.If you desire to migrate your website to another web host.
