Most hosting providers will either install WordPress for you or they have an “app” that will make the installation very easy. But what happens next?
If you do not keep your WordPress and associated plugins up to date you will not benefit from new feature releases, you may have compatibility problems and any security problems will not be plugged which will leave your site vulnerable to hacking.
If you have the time and the technical skills to manage backups and the many software updates then you won’t need this service.
The core WordPress files are updated frequently. As a result the makers of WordPress plugins and templates then need to update their software. Applying the updates can be a simple process but there is a risk of incompatibility problems. Therefore it is vital that before any update is started that files and database have been backed up. The obvious next question is if the updates have caused a problem how do you apply the backup that you have made? If you do not have the technical skills – this is where things can go from bad to worse!
We are not trying to put anyone off from having a website nor using WordPress as their platform but the reality of owning a website and running the background aspects are often overlooked or underestimated.
