WORDPRESS MAINTENANCE

WordPress is one of the easiest and most powerful website content management systems (CMS) around. Because of its flexibility and ability to grow, WordPress is the ideal site builder for both small and large companies. WordPress is used by 43.2% of all websites on the internet. (W3Techs, 2022)

WordPress is a collection of software from various vendors that all work together. Like any software, it needs to be regularly updated to the latest versions. If not, sites are vulnerable to hacking, broken functionality, malware infection, security breaches, loss of data and possible blacklisting from Google.

Your WordPress website is not set it and forget it.

WordPress websites routinely receive new updates each month which improves the security and performance of the platform. In order to make sure that your WordPress website remains secure your site needs consistent maintenance of the core code as well as any plugins and themes.
