WordPress is wonderful for business website owners, but keeping your WordPress website secure, up to date and running smoothly can be time consuming and a hassle.
Why Is It Important?
WordPress releases new updated versions on a regular basis. It’s very important to keep up with these upgrades for security reasons – sites running older versions of WordPress can be much more vulnerable to hacking. And plugins on your site also require occasional updating for exactly the same reason. The security of a WordPress website is dependent on updates so it is very important that you update whenever a new version of WordPress comes out. These maintenance plans ensure that your site is always up-to-date and protected with the latest security patches and updates.
Take the stress out of maintaining your WordPress website and keep your site operational, safe and secure.
