Step 6: Site Maintenance

MaintenanceRegardless of how you feel, the fact remains that your website will work best when every area of your site is as secure as possible, upgraded and kept current with the latest WordPress versions and patches. Keeping the most current WordPress versions installed is imperative to your site’s security.

Maintain Your Site Security and Integrity

We recommend upgrading any time a new and stable WordPress version, theme, plugin or tool is released. We also understand that doing this is probably not very convenient for you unless you visit your WP-admin area daily and notice the announcements.

If you don’t want to learn to do site maintenance yourself or if you simply don’t have or want to make time for upgrades, you don’t have to worry. We already monitor many websites daily so when an upgrade, change or patch is released for the WordPress publishing system, plugins or themes, we are aware of it immediately.

Changes and improvements to the main WordPress system, plugins and themes will continue to happen fast. So, you if feel like you have better things to do with your time than trying to keep up with upgrades, changes and patches for your WordPress website, just let US do it. The choice is yours.

Learning Site Maintenance

Doing WordPress upgrades on your own is free. Upgrades, like installations, are simple if you have the knowledge and understanding needed or take the time to learn. But, as we know, simple is not always easy. It can take newbies (novice users) many hours to make their appropriate upgrades – especially if something goes wrong.

Worst case scenario, mistakes are made. Unfortunately, mistakes can be expensive to fix. On the flip side, we have learned that people that try – and end up making mistakes, usually learn one of two things. They learn how to fix it themselves and love the challenge or they realize they really don’t want to have anything more to do with development and it is best for them to leave that to US. 😉 Whatever you decide is best for you, is a choice that you get to make.

The Ultimate Solution also offers 1-on-1 training for those that are more of the “Do It Yourself’er” type. And don’t worry if you have no experience, our instructors will teach to your level.  So, if you want to get an education from the professionals just let us know! It is a quick, simple and low-cost way to learn. Just leave your name and email in form at the top of the site for details.
