It’s important to keep the core WordPress software and all plugins updated to ensure security and keep your website running smoothly.
My WordPress Maintenance packages are a way to make sure your site stays safe from hacks and exploits used by spammers and phishers and stay technologically up to date. Fixing hacked or broken sites can take from 2 to 10 hours depending on severity of issue and date of last backup.
Why update? Who cares about security?
As I’m sure you’re aware, technology moves fast and hackers try to move faster. Being an incredibly popular, free, open source content management system, WordPress is vulnerable to hackers who are out to steal your contact database or inject code into your pages, posts and comments to use your site as a billboard to sell their goods. For the want of Google rankings and contact details to sell as targeted email marketing lists, WordPress installations are under constant attack from password robots. Additionally having out-of-date plugins and widgets can affect content displayed from services such as Ecwid, Facebook, Twitter, iTunes, Pinterest, etc.
