Why Do I Need A Maintenance Plan For My WordPress Site?

Your WordPress website needs regular maintenance to perform as it should. Updates are regularly made to the software, themes and plugins.  It is imperative you keep your  installation is up-to-date, especially since so many  updates are security fixes and patches that will prevent potential exploits of the vulnerabilities of your website or blog.

Because WordPress is so widespread, it is constantly being targeted by hackers who will try to break into your site. As soon the developers find these vulnerabilities, they create patches to fix them, leading to regular updates that will keep your  installation clean and safe. If you do not keep your installation current, you risk becoming the next victim to malicious attacks that can be easily prevented by keeping your  code up-to-date.

Your WordPress website’s performance is vital to your visitors and search engines. By performing database optimizations, keeping your website updated and with regular backups, we significantly reduce the risk of database and data corruption. We’re here to safely update WordPress core, plugins, and themes. We also support upgrade compatibility to ensure your site stays online.

What is WordPress?

WordPress is an online, open source website creation tool written in PHP. But in non-geek speak, it’s probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) in existence today.

WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

 

Who uses WordPress?

You’re in good company if you use WordPress to publish on the web. Many famous blogs, news outlets, music sites, Fortune 500 companies and celebrities are using WordPress.

For example, famous blogs like Mashable and TechCrunch are both on WordPress. News outlets like The New York Times’ blogs and CNN’s on-air personality blogs all use WordPress, too.

You realise you are the only web designer I have worked with that has done this?  Watching, researching, tweaking, changing, and then describing the whole process in a way that is understandable?
