WordPress Website Management and Maintenance Support FAQs
Why do I need WordPress Website Management with extra security?
Code is code – technology changes more often than you have to change a baby’s nappy! So, if you don’t update and manage your website regularly you will be left behind. More importantly, hackers will love you and want to get into your website to place their lovely malware on it and mess up your business. Not that they are looking to mess up your business… they are looking to hack into your visitors’ computers.
A WordPress website is made up of core code, which is the WordPress platform. The coding of the theme. Then you have the coding of all the plugins you may have added to make your website do what you want it to do.
You have to be SO careful when adding a plugin. Make sure it’s a reputable one and updated regularly. Then you MUST update it regularly too.
Why do people want to hack my website?
People (hackers) aren’t actually interested in your website. In fact, they don’t care about your website at all. They don’t hack websites to ruin someone’s business. So why do hackers hack websites?
Mainly in order to get into your visitor’s computers! It’s all about money and they are looking for bank details or access to some kind of financial gain.
When someone visits a hacked website, if they haven’t got a ‘malware blocker’ on their computer then this could potentially flag up to the hackers that they have a vulnerable user on one of their hacked sites. They have all sorts of clever ways of knowing this.
At this point they will then try and get into the ‘vulnerable’ visitor’s computer and find information to gain access to money.
It’s as simple as that. This is the main reason for website hacking. There are others but, whatever the reasons, you want to protect your visitors and the best way to do this is keep your website as secure and as up to date as you possibly can.
Can I maintain and manage my website myself?
Yes, of course you can. But you have to:
a) remember to do it almost daily
