Ongoing Website Service

Our Ongoing Website Service is only supplied to websites that Magicdust has built and includes three valuable components: Website Support, WordPress and Security Updates, and Hosting.


  1. Magicdust has a business hours help desk available by phone or email 9am-5pm AEST. This service is provided to direct you to information to solve your issue.
  2. FAQs and manuals are available free of charge in the Support Centre to assist customers to update their websites.
  3. Our friendly domains team are on hand by email or phone to help your navigate the complexities around domain names, email accounts, email hosting, parked domains, sub-domains etc.
  4. Magicdust has an emergency email, which may only be used in an absolute emergency (website is down, emails not working). If your query is not deemed an emergency and you require it to be fixed outside of business hours, this will be chargeable at a rate of $150 excluding GST.
  5. Magicdust eWebs are self managed and Magicdust is not responsible for any copy, editing or updating of the client’s website. Magicdust is under no obligation to do any work on your website unless contracted to do so.

WordPress and Security Updates:

  1. Each day we run a set of server and website malware scanners to proactively detect any malicious activity and proactively manage any issues as quickly as possible. Actively monitoring and keeping your website up to date reduces the risk and vulnerability of being attacked.
  2. Each week we run all updates to WordPress itself and all plugins. This optimises the performance of your website, fixes any bugs, ensures compatibility, adds any new features, and most importantly optimises security.


  1. We have a round the clock team monitoring the servers to ensure 99.9% uptime.
  2. We run a daily, weekly and 2 monthly back-ups, so at any time we maintain 4 restore points stored on our secure back-ups servers.
  3. Each website account is allocated the standard relevant bandwidth and disk space based on your allocated hosting packaged outlined in your contract. Any additional usage is an additional charge. Magicdust will monitor your usage and if Magicdust anticipates that your website may require more bandwidth/disk space your allocation will be increased. When additional bandwidth/disk space is purchased, the activation of the disk space is provided as the website requires it up to the purchased amount.
  4. Although Magicdust monitors the bandwidth/disk space usage of the website, Magicdust does not take responsibility for any website going offline due to exceeding bandwidth or disk space. It is the clients responsibility to notify Magicdust of any potential increases in usage so this can be accommodated.
  5. Magicdust does not allow any of the following content or websites to be stored on its servers:
    1. Illegal material, including copyrighted works, commercial audio, video, or music files, and any material of any type in violation of any Federal, State or Local law or regulation anywhere in the world.
    2. Scripts – any script that creates a load on the server will be removed.

    5. Websites that promote the sex service industry, which includes but is not limited to prostitution.
    6. Customers agree to a six (6) month contract, beginning upon the date Magicdust has designed, built and handed over the website (i.e. the date when Magicdust sends out the username and password).
