IS YOUR CMS VERSION UP TO DATE?
Just like website content requiring regular updates to stay fresh, CMS updates are an essential part of website maintenance. While sticking with the current and familiar CMS might seem like the easier option, remaining with an unsupported or outdated CMS poses significant risks.
If you are using a CMS (content management system) like WordPress, you probably know that this is the most targeted platform when it comes to hacking. The likelihood of an older site getting hacked is a lot greater due to it having less secure coding and modules that are not up to date. Preventing security breaches before they happen is essential. Plugins are the vulnerable point of your website. Having too many or out of date plugins might cause issues, that is why we strongly advise you to make sure that latest bug fixes and security patches are properly installed on your site.

Why does my website need regular site maintenance?
Websites with old content rank lower in listings of search engines. Many search engines, including Google, will scan the “if-modified-since” HTTP header on your page to decide if it’s worth crawling. Failure to make frequent changes could cause you to be pushed in the listings below active competitors, and overtime cost your business.
