Updating and Management of WordPress

WordPress is a free blogging / forum code that can be installed by anyone. It comes with some basic template designs that can be implemented by the user. Installing the software is pretty straightforward, but you do have to create a database that handles all of the backend instructions for your site.

Periodically, every few months or so, WordPress updates their coding for a variety of reasons. Often, the code is updated to repair some vulnerability in the coding that could be exploited by unscrupulous individuals. Maintaining your WordPress files with the latest release insures that your site will remain protected. If you fail to update the code on a regular basis, then your site is open to becoming infection that could actually permanently ruin your site.

As vulnerabilities become known, scammers also become aware of the vulnerability and how to exploit these vulnerable spots. They then seek out those sites that have not yet updated the code and can take advantage of weakness. That's why it's so important to make those updates as soon as they become available.

Blogs that we create and manage are automatically updated as soon as a new update becomes available. It's not difficult and can be usually done in just a few minutes. Anyone that has a blog can problably update their code without any problems. However, if you for whatever reason fail to keep the code current, you could be putting your site at risk.

We offer an annual WordPress Management service that insures your site stays current with the latest code updates so you don't have to worry about them. It's simple insurance and a measure of comfort in knowing that you don't have to worry about it.
