It's estimated that around 30,000 websites fall victim to hackers each day. Globally, 64% of companies have faced some form of cyberattack. On average, the web witnesses a new attack every 39 seconds. The vast majority of these incidents could be thwarted with diligent website maintenance—and, of course, by avoiding overly simplistic passwords like "password."

Modern websites can be likened to cars; they serve as a conduit for businesses to connect with new customers and drive future growth. This comparison holds especially true when considering the need for upkeep—just as cars require regular maintenance to function optimally, websites need consistent care to perform as expected. WordPress maintenance is crucial for ensuring your website continues to achieve the outcomes you desire, helping to avoid expensive repairs down the line.

We understand business owners juggle numerous responsibilities daily, leading to WordPress maintenance sometimes falling by the wayside, with potentially severe repercussions. The reality is, without proper preparation, it's not a matter of if a cyberattack will occur but when. At Maennche Marketing, we aim to simplify staying current and safeguarded against the ever-present risk of hackers and other cyber threats with our comprehensive WordPress maintenance services.

Why Is WordPress Maintenance Important?

WordPress, a free and open-source platform, currently powers over 42% of the web, ranging from extensive eCommerce sites to simple blogs. Its adaptability to suit any business need is undeniable. However, the open-source nature of WordPress means that its code is accessible for anyone to scrutinize, searching for vulnerabilities. This accessibility makes it a prime target for hackers and other malicious entities.

Hackers are incredibly clever and will continue to find new ways to perform cyberattacks or steal business data. For this reason, WordPress and plugin developers are constantly releasing updates to patch problems and ensure websites can maintain a high level of security. But what happens when you aren't installing these updates?

Simply put, you are taking a risk each day that you put off WordPress maintenance – and the consequences can often be devastating to a business. Researchers have found that more than half of all small businesses that are victims of a cyberattack will never recover due to the financial burden it creates. If you aren't keeping up with your WordPress maintenance, you could be the next business that falls victim to this far too common problem.

Some of the critical steps we take to ensure security and functionality include:

  • Updating Core Software and Plugins
  • Fixing Broken Links
  • Removing and Stopping Spam
  • Performing Daily Backups on the Primary Server
  • Monitoring Uptime
  • Maintaining the Database
