WordPress Maintenance Experts
Keeping your WordPress website up to date with the latest plugins and to the latest version is far more critical than a lot of business owners realise.
From being hacked and a terrorist cell taking over your website through to a database attack whereby links to nasty websites are added in their thousands, it’s now more important than ever to make sure that your online assets are as secure as possible and kept up to date.
We can confidently offer you the reassurance that your WordPress website will never be out of date and, if the worst should happen, we will remove the hack or malware injection for free.
What is WordPress Maintenance?
WordPress is the most popular content management system on the internet and is estimated to power over 40% of the web. Due to this fact, most hackers out there will look to find security flaws or errors within core WordPress files or within plugins that are commonly used.
A WordPress maintenance service will provide you with the reassurance that all site updates are completed within a timely fashion therefore, leaving your site less vulnerable to attack.
Our maintenance plans also include hosting, along with back-ups every 24 hours. This means that if anything does happen, such as one of your in-house team members accidentally deleting or changing something, we can easily restore the data for you.
We provide free Malware Removal within all of our plans and a CDN in the higher plans that will deliver the static files on your website quicker to the visitor.
Why is WordPress Maintenance important?
Many people will tell you that WordPress is not secure and isn’t a good platform to build your business’s online presence on. This is simply not true.
Issues occur on WordPress when people forget to update the software powering it. Much like a laptop, a mobile phone or your Macbook, it needs regular updates to stay ahead of any security issues that weren’t discovered previously.
We have seen WordPress sites come under vicious attacks after not being updated properly. A local, professional services business once found that a large terrorist group had hacked their site and were using it for propaganda purposes.
Without the correct, crucial and time-sensitive updates, any site can be subject to hacking. We have seen a small charity that ended up with an SQL injection – this created thousands of links within the database from the site, pointing to sites selling drugs. Needless to say, it was picked up by a council IT team in the process of tendering for work.
Evidently, keeping any device or software up to date is unbelievably important. Your WordPress website is no different.
