What Are The Benefits Of Upgrading WordPress?
Take advantage of the latest functionality
WordPress is always coming out with new functionality. By upgrading to the latest version you are taking advantage of the best open-source CMS on the market.
Prevent issues before they arise
The WordPress organization is vigilant about keeping its software secure and its millions of users protected. But you can’t shield your website from attacks unless you install and apply the WordPress updates to your WP website. When you do, you’re fixing the problem before it starts. Consider this service to be a form of preventative maintenance, like an oil change!
Protect your custom design
WordPress offers a one-click update for basic websites using the free WordPress themes. If you have a custom design from CPD, upgrading WordPress could affect your customizations. Depending on your organization’s needs, your website may have utilized plugins from different WordPress developers. Plugins are sometimes independent pieces of software that also are constantly being improved upon. Keeping your plugins updated has similar benefits and will ensure that they continue to play nicely with newer versions of WordPress. We’ll take care of those updates and settings as well.
Peace of mind with one less task on your plate
If you don’t often log in to your WordPress site to make text and image changes, you may not even know when it is time for an update. If you see a notification like the one below, then you may want to consider a full site and database backup, and a solid website upgrade!
How often are you backing up your website?
Before running upgrades it is critical that your website be backed up in the event that issues arise with the upgrade process. CPD handles website backups on your behalf and stores the data securely in the event it is needed for disaster recovery.
