Your website is an important investment and an important part of your business. You have invested a significant amount of time and money in order to have it and like a brick and mortar office it must be cared for.
Although the effects of neglecting maintenance tasks are quite different in regards to real property than for virtual property, the costs of the damage can be similar. A slow website can cost you views, leads, contacts and sales but a hacked website can cause loss of reputation, loss of confidence, immense cleanup costs and that's before starting the repairs or in some cases, complete rebuild of the site.
In order to understand website maintenance, in a WordPress environment, it is important to understand the components of your website and what is being maintained. I am writing these in fairly basic form, if you need further explanation or assistance please contact us.
When you type in a web address (URL) your browser accesses that server and reads a file that tells the browser how to interpret and display the website files in your browser.
Because every visitor to your site is accessing files from your server there can be dozens of vulnerabilities that can allow a hacker or malware software to hijack and take advantage of your site, server or information stored on the server. Sometimes, code on the website can even create access holes to other services or platforms that are connected to the site.
With a WordPress Care Plan, we perform regular security scans of the server as well as your website files. Any threats found are dealt with quickly so that you and your visitors encounter very little, if any, website downtime. We also, regularly update the WordPress core files and plugin files to ensure the latest security patches.
Along with regular security updates and scans, we provide our Care Plan customers with premium grade managed hosting on high end servers built for performance and security.
