Keep your website updated monthly
Not everyone is comfortable with updating WordPress several times a year, so I'm offering an Update Service that includes:
- WordPress Updates: Typically 3-4 times a year WordPress has a major update, and I will upgrade your WordPress install.
- Plugin updates: All plugins will be updated at least once a month (typically 2-3 times a month).
- Database Backups: Once a month your database will be backed up and stored.
- Critical Security Updates: If there is an urgent update of a plugin or WordPress required, it will be updated.
This service is only available for sites I have built.
Why is updating your WordPress site important?
WordPress and plugins are constantly being patched for security vulnerabilities. I am aware when there is a critical update that needs immediate attention. You do not want your site compromised. Recovering a site that has been hacked costs a lot of money and time and is extremely frustrating.
If you plan to maintain the site yourself
It is VERY IMPORTANT to log in at least once a month and take care of all the available updates. Set a calendar reminder for once a month so you don't forget.
