Your website is not static. Even if you don’t change a single comma, your website changes on its own. That’s because the underlying software and server technologies are constantly evolving.
In particular, a WordPress website relies on several types of software that need to be updated regularly:
- WordPress software itself
- PHP (the software on the server that runs WordPress)
If you don’t keep up with updates, your website may stop working as it should. In the most drastic cases, your website will appear broken or become vulnerable to hackers. Additionally, some updates may be incompatible with parts of your website and could end up introducing new problems.
If you’re not sure how to address these concerns yourself (or are simply not inclined), I can help. I’ll keep an eye on your website, making sure things are humming along as they should. Every month, I’ll:
- Ensure the security of your website
- Back up your website
- Update software and plugins that are safe to update
Typically, this takes 15 minutes to 1 hour every month. (If I see issues that may take longer than an hour, I will bring them to your attention so that you can decide how to proceed.)
