Ever had your website hacked?
It isn’t a great experience.
Most times it’s down to a handful of things:
your WordPress install, themes or plugins weren’t updated and a hacker was able to gain access through a vulnerability; you have a weak password that can be decrypted by a computer program quite easily (or you use the same one on multiple sites); or, the web hosting server you were located on is vulnerable and lots of WordPress websites have been hacked too.
Now, these aren’t the only instances. There are a whole host of different reasons too, but these are considered to be the main ones.
Server security is a must for any hosting environment and most companies out there take care of this.
However, many of them also take care of your WordPress updates and in doing so break a part or all of your website because they’re carried out automatically.
Not great if things look funky for your clients/customers. That isn’t the impression you want to give and it can potentially cost you lost revenue.
Full WordPress, theme and plugin updates
Whatever Genie plan you’re on we ensure that the core installation of WordPress is kept up-to-date, themes are updated frequently and that plugins are up-to-date and patches applied.
One advantage to this is that one of the Genies completes this manually.
They’ll take your website, clone it to a testing environment, make the updates and then test the functionality of the changes on the website.
Then, they’ll switch the changes to the live site and ensure any caching or CDN is flushed and updated, making sure any changes are live for anyone viewing your website.
Sit back, relax and have peace of mind that your WordPress business website is kept updated, is secure and has reliable backups.
