WordPress is a wonderful thing. You can edit your website, add new pages and posts, do all kinds of brilliant things online. What we can sometimes forget about, though, is the maintenance, looking after your WordPress. And this is necessary, important – your site needs to be secure and run efficiently.
So – what to do. Well having a backup is essential – install and set up the UpdraftPlus plugin, schedule this to take regular (depending on how often you blog or edit things, perhaps – weekly with 2 retained should suffice) backups in the Settings. You also need your FTP details – ask your host for this – it is important. Really.
It can be a little daunting, updating WordPress, your plugins and themes, so we can take care of this for you if you prefer and want to focus on your business knowing your website or blog is ticking along nicely.
Basically if you are met with a dozen updates and hundreds of spam comments and messages you’re just not sure about, let us take care of it for you.
