WordPress is a content management system that helps business website owners keep their content current, but keeping a WordPress website secure, up-to-date and running smoothly can be a hassle.
Our WordPress Update Service is optional, however without regular software updates, your site is at risk of becoming outdated and vulnerable to hackers and malware.
This service ensures that your site is always up-to-date and protected with the latest Wordpress security patches and updates as well as Wordpress Plug-In security patches and updates and even Theme updates when available and appropriate. While you can install updates on your own, it does require a working knowledge of the WordPress admin area.
WordPress releases new updated versions regularly for security and new functionality. It’s very important to keep up with these upgrades for security reasons – sites running older versions of WordPress are more vulnerable to hacking. And plugins on your site also require updating for exactly the same reason.
Our Wordpress update service can help you keep your WordPress site or blog running quickly and securely.

* Backup WordPress database and files prior to monthly maintenance tasks

Do You Guarantee My Site Won’t Be Hacked?
Sorry, to say it, but that's actually impossible. We can’t guarantee that your site will not be hacked. The internet attracts hackers. With this service, though, the likelihood of hacking will be greatly reduced. And if your site does get hacked, this work will enable you to get up and running again more quickly.
