Just like software on a computer or an application on a smart phone, a web site is a piece of software that needs to be updated and backed up. Our web site management services allow our clients to be sure that their web site is safe, reliable, and available to customers at all times.
Most updates of popular content management systems such as WordPress happen on a regular basis. For WordPress most large updates (example 3.4 to 3.5) added new features but it also added fixes to bugs and security issues. Smaller updates (example 3.4.10 to 3.4.11) usually are bug fixes and security issues which are very important. Security updates are crucial to the survival of your web site because there’s constant threats to any web site that is online and world wide accessible. Hackers, spammers, and phishers are constantly scanning web sites with automated software looking for out dated versions of popular content management systems in which they can exploit.
As part of our web site management we make sure to have a complete backup of the web site. This ensures that if issues with come up with the content management system, a plugin, a faulty post happens, or things get accidentally deleted then there is backups to bring things back to normal quickly and efficiently.
