Why you need a WordPress Care Plan
WordPress now runs around 30% of all websites on the internet. It’s popularity has made it a very inviting target for hackers, so more of them are being drawn to WordPress sites. This makes security an ever more critical aspect. WordPress itself and all good theme and plugin developers release regular updates to keep ahead of any security threats and patch any vulnerabilities.
It is therefore essential to keep your website software up to date. You can of course do this yourself via your admin login; alternatively I can take care of software updates for you with my WordPress Care Plans and Website Support Service.
Apart from the obvious security reasons for keeping your WordPress website fully updated, when you take advantage of my WordPress Care Plans I also keep any eye out for potential problems with themes and plugins which can affect site performance and cause unforeseen issues. Through simple, consistent and regular maintenance I can help improve the overall reliability and performance of your website.
