Website Updates

Don’t get caught off guard

If you don’t have someone monitoring your website 24/7 for updates you’re leaving your company open to hackers who use ransomware and other means to make your life a living hell.

When was the last time you or your designated webmaster checked for updates?

Websites are not static, they’re dynamic. Developers are constantly updating their plugins, security patches, and applications to improve your user-experience but more importantly to keep hackers out. The question is, are you keeping up with these changes that happen daily?

We maintain many websites and receive notifications through Wordfence Security via email in real time whenever there is an update necessary and whether it is a critical or medium security risk. If it’s critical, we make the change ASAP if it’s medium or low impact we perform updates within the week.

Is your website backed up daily?

Depending on the amount of traffic and/or transactions your website gets you may need to backup your site daily in the event of a crash or a hack. Many sites only need to be backed up on a weekly basis. Do you have scheduled backups for your website?

What about server-side updates?

You hosting provider is regularly improving their services too. Some of their improvements don’t require any action on your part but others do. Do you know which ones?

PHP is a server side scripting language that is embedded in HTML. It is used to manage dynamic content, databases, session tracking, even build entire e-commerce sites. It is integrated with a number of popular databases, including MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Sybase, Informix, and Microsoft SQL Server.

If your website is more than a year old you probably need to update your PHP to a current version so that your website will continue to run smoothly.

If you don’t have someone dedicated to keeping up with your website give us a call. We will take good care of your site for a very nominal fee and provide the protection and peace of mind you and your company deserves.
