Why do you need a WordPress website maintenance plan?
WordPress is one of the world’s most powerful and adaptable online content management systems. It’s no wonder that WordPress is trusted by millions of website builders worldwide and used by many major global business enterprises.
WordPress is open-source software that updates its core code frequently. This means that every single update secures discovered vulnerabilities from previous versions of the software. Your plugins and themes operate in the same way, even premium and paid options.
Why Updates Matter?
Once a website is live, it’s essential to protect it from malware and hackers that can take your site down and destroy your Google rankings. Over 50% of all web traffic is composed of spammers, bots, malware and hackers. And the #1 leading vulnerability to website hacks is out of date plugins, themes and WordPress itself. It’s essential to keep ALL of your site up-to-date.
