Modern websites are organic and require ongoing care

Modern websites are organic and require ongoing care

A client recently asked me to cancel their ongoing support as they did not feel they needed it any more as they don’t frequently update their website content.

They were failing to understand that their WordPress website interacts with its environment. It’s vulnerable to internal and external threats.

Those who manage the hosting of the site will be regularly updating their software to improve its security, functionality and performance, so site owners must ensure that their site is updated to remain compatible.

Site owners also need to update the site to protect it against malicious forces who are constantly on the lookout for new vulnerabilities.

Ensure that your hosting and your website are being cared for in a professional manner. Otherwise you risk losing your website, your reputation, possibly your money and ultimately, your business.

Poorly maintained websites and the fall of world leaders

Poorly maintained websites and the fall of world leaders

This week’s big news story has been the so called “Panama Papers” and the resultant resignation of at least one world leader, the Icelandic Prime Minister.
