WordPress Website Maintenance & Security
WordPress Maintenance & Security
Maintaining your WordPress website and proactively looking into your security is a critical aspect in ensuring the uptime and availability of your website.
Not doing ongoing maintenance on your website and server can result in security vulnerabilities being exposed which can leave your site prone to attack by hackers, bots and malware, performance issues, conflicts between applications which can introduce functionality issues on the website, or the worst-case scenario is that your website crashes and goes down.
In the vast majority of cases the above issues can be avoided by ensuring that your website is well maintained and supported, and that best practices are employed to keep your applications and infrastructure up to date.
There are a number of other recommended maintenance practices including:
- Having backups and a tested recovery procedure in place,
- Ensuring that themes and plugins are kept up to date,
- Any unnecessary software is uninstalled or deleted from your website or server,
- Ensuring that website administrator logins and passwords are complex and robust,
- Limiting failed login attempts and brute force attempts on your website and server.
