WordPress Maintenance: Updates, Backups, and Security

WordPress maintenance is a must for your WordPress websites.

Plugins update all the time, so if you have any number of them, you're going to see updates on a weekly basis.

WordPress updates its core files once a quarter at the bare minimum.

Keeping up with these updates is essential because these updates often fix bugs and security vulnerabilities.

This is WordPress maintenance at its most basic. It's not difficult, but it can be a bit daunting if you don't know what you're doing or you have multiple websites.

WordPress is a Target for Hackers.wordpress maintenance

It's unfortunate, but because 30% of the web is run on WordPress, it's a major target for hackers.

Your first line of defense against these attacks is using a strong password with your WordPress site.

Those crazy gibberish passwords are a pain, but they're also a pain for hackers. The tougher your password, the more difficult it is for hackers to breach your website.

Getting Hacked Will Cost You

Recently, a client had 5 websites on the same server. Three of them had been hacked and injected with malware.

We decided to let the experts handle it. Cleaning one website was more than $300. When the "experts" found out he had additional sites on the same server, it became their "policy" to check them all. Suddenly, that $300 had turned into $1500.

I ended up cleaning his sites for him and saving him a ton of money, but he still had to pay me for my time.

Having a simple WordPress Maintenance plan can solve these problems.
