WordPress Maintenance Service
Have you ever asked yourself why does WordPress need so much maintenance? Why is it constantly changing and why new items are being added.
WordPress ia an open source project. It is in a state of constant development. This development is to add new functionality, to fix bugs and to close security loopholes. This is why the WordPress core files need attention on a regular basis.
Plugins are a big part of WordPress, they offer extensions to the WordPress core functions and solve almost every problem a WordPress site owner may have. These plugin updates need to be factored into your maintenance plans.
As WordPress develops so themes develop to take advantage of new functionality. You may find that your theme requires an update, this is yet anther maintenance task you need to consider.
WordPress also suffers because of its popularity. It is an easy target for hackers. There are millions of WordPress sites, and many of the site owners are not trained in computer security. As a result hacks are being made on outdated code, plugins with loop holes etc. Many of the updates and maintenance procedures required are to block loopholes and monitor for attacks. You need to do this or risk a hacked website and all the pain and embarrassment that it causes.
“What would be the implications to your site readers and customers if I was suddenly pointing to “Porn” site after a hack?”
