Another hack, another update!
In case you didn’t know, that’s generally why an update happens. Someone with too much time on their hands finds an area to breach on a website, and they’re in. They are looking for any kind of personal information they can steal such as credit card information, passwords etc. 83% of WordPress blogs that get hacked are because they have not updated any features.That’s why keeping your website updated is so important.
All plugins, widgets, themes, and WordPress Core will have updates at one time or another. They may also require an update because the developer created a new feature that can enhance your website. Besides, for SEO purposes (Search Engine Optimization, being found in other words) you should be logging into your website often to make content changes and or blogging several times a month anyway. While you are in there, just check to see if there are any updates. It’s that simple. Besides, wouldn’t you like to see fresh information when you are visiting a website often? Your customers want the same thing as well!
We don’t want this to scare you. WordPress is still our # 1 choice for building websites because there are so many possibilities with this platform. You will just want a designer like us who has monthly plans to do these updates for you, or make sure you are checking your website a minimum of twice a month, have all the security added that you can, do backups and have an SSL certificate. Another great thing? Even though you are using someone else’s “platform” to have the website built, you will still own it. What does that mean? A lot of these “FREE” places that allow you to use their software program to build a website, means that you do not own the website. Even if you build it, use your pictures, content etc., you used their software so they own it. Not quite fair is it?
We do offer a plan that takes care of these updates for you. Or, if you would like a video on how to do the updates yourself, we can do one specific to your website for you for only $ 65.00. We would need login to your website so the video can be done, but then you have it to reference back to in case you have any questions. Either way, we are here to help!
We hope you gained some insight with what we have mentioned, and are always here to answer any questions for you!.
