1. WordPress security
Security is arguably the most important reason why you should keep your WordPress website up to date. WordPress currently powers at least 25% of all websites in the world. Due to its immense popularity, WordPress is a popular target for hackers. Since WordPress is open-source, anyone can study the source code to learn and improve it. However, it also means that hackers can study it too and find ways to break into your website.
2. WordPress speed
WordPress developers are always trying to make things faster. Each new release comes with several performance improvements that make WordPress run faster and more efficient. Since speed is a factor in SEO, you should definitely keep your WordPress updated to ensure maximum performance benefits. Even one theme core or plug-in that is not updated will often slow down your website or cause certain functions of your website to become unresponsive.
3. 24/7 uptime monitoring
Monitoring a WordPress website can be crucial, especially if you have an e-commerce store. If the website is down or slow because of outdated code then a visitor could get fed up and leave. This potentially could cost you thousands in lost revenue. We monitor the website 24/7 and take action accordingly to get your website back up and running.
4. Updating plugins and themes
Updating core WordPress is important, but also as important is to update the themes and plugins you use, as a bug in one of these can affect your whole installation including speed, performance and security.
5. Complete backup of website files and database
The database, files and images (everything that comes together to create your website) are downloaded every month to a server and can be transferred to a secure location. If anything happens to your website, we’ve got a copy of your website safe, secure and ready to be reinstated.
