Monthly WordPress Website Maintenance
How WordPress Technical Maintenance Protects Your Website
WordPress is a fantastic tool; but like all programs, continual security updates are required to actively maintain the file structure of your website or blog keeping it safe for your guests. This is where our WordPress Technical Maintenance service comes in. WordPress is an “open-source” project developed by an active technical community who provide it free of charge, making it an affordable solution for the world. Concerns arise when relentless hackers take advantage of this generosity continually searching for weak spots or “windows” where they can gain access to your website or server.
How Hackers Attack Your Website
Many businesses find it hard to believe that their website would be a target for hackers. The truth is, ANY website can be a potential target. Most people only consider big business or government websites as targets because they have access to personal information that hackers seek out for personal gain – like credit cards or social security numbers. Smaller organizations are common targets because they are left unprotected and make easy hiding spots for a hacker activity. In WordPress, vulnerabilities are commonly found in the code used to create plugin or themes. If not properly updated and maintained, hackers can get into your files and upload bad scripts that spread virus files to your visitors’ computers. They can also use your server space to hide their online activity as well as spread to other websites hosted in the server space. The damage done can be anywhere from harmful links hidden in the code to complete denial of access to your website. No matter how they attack you, you’ll need technical knowledge to repair the damage.
