KEEPING YOUR WORDPRESS WEBSITE UP TO DATE.
As part of our commitment to keep your website running smoothly, safe from security breaches, hacking attempts and up-to-date with the latest software versions, we ask each client to choose whether they will keep their own site up-to-date or if they would like us to do it.
It’s important to keep your site up-to-date because updates often include security patches that keep your site safe from hackers and other vulnerabilities that occur online. Remember that your website is hosted on a public server; that means anyone in the world can access it and if it’s not up-to-date it also means that the not so nice people out there can find those issues and exploit them. We do require that you keep your site up-to-date as per your hosting agreement with us because even if you don’t mind your own site being compromised, an out of date site means that a hacker has a possible access point to the entire server, which includes hundreds of other clients. In the case of having your own dedicated server, your site may be the only one there but an unmaintained site can lead to significant problems in the future.
