While you may think it unlikely that hackers will target your website, the truth is your outdated plugins are a beacon inviting them to try.
Keep your copy of WordPress and all installed plugins up-to-date to secure your website against known security gaps.
Take control of your website’s updates with scheduled, managed updates. No more (surprise!) broken pages or frustrated visitors.
Moreover, all updates are made in a safe, private environment. Updates go live only when they pass pre-launch checks.
Updates happen on a complete copy of your website, not the live version your visitors see. The result is a low-risk environment to make changes without rushing overnight or giving up your weekends.
Best of all, your developer is there to handle anything that goes wrong before your updates go live. No more scrambling or lost sleep!
While many websites grow old over time, your website can mature as your business does. This prevents redesigns down the road caused by outdated information, mission, or visual representation.
In other words, treat your website as an extension of your business and it will last longer.
