After publishing your WordPress website, the work is not done yet, because other essential thing follows further: The constant maintenance and updating of your WordPress website.

In this article, we will mention a few essential WordPress Maintenance Tips

Why is the maintenance of your WordPress website so essential?

WordPress CMS is known for diligently releasing new updates. Since version 5.0 (Bebo) was released in December 2018, a new update has been made available on average every 3-4 months. With each update, performance has been increased, and security has been improved. Once you don’t install the updates, their website can slow down and become a target for hacking attacks.

As with your car, regular maintenance is essential for your website. This is the only way to ensure proper operation. That’s why it’s better to be safe than sorry because, without security measures, the damage is often more significant.

Overview of current versions

Often the operator lacks either the time or the know-how to update his website. Just 49.3% of all WordPress websites are operated with the current version, and the remaining 50.3% of websites use an outdated version.

Safe is safe

Besides regular updating, constant website backup is not to be neglected. After all, what happens if, for example, your online store is hacked and all customer data and invoices/receipts are lost? Or if you update a plugin that subsequently no longer works properly and cripples your website? Generally, it is recommended to create a backup before any customization, which you can access in case of emergency. If possible, you should save the backup on a separate server. Then, if problems occur, you can easily reset the website and fix the error.

Security tips

Undoubtedly the most critical point is to use a secure password that you can still remember. A simple way to do this is to take a sentence and use only the first letters of each word. Add numbers and special characters, and you have a secure password that is easy to remember. Ideally, your password should be between 12-16 characters and include numbers and special symbols. As an aid, you can download a program (e.g., MacPass for Apple users) in which you can create password management.

Never use the same password in two places. To make your website even more secure, you can uninstall inactive and unneeded themes and plugins. This way, you can already eliminate some potential security holes.

Search engine optimization (SEO)

Updating your WordPress website is also crucial for your search engine results. If your website slows down due to uninstalled updates, it will harm your rankings. For the search engines, fast websites are significant. For this, you can install useful plugins, such as LiteSpeed plugin (Attention: It requires a LiteSpeed Web Server). LS Cache will significantly improve the loading time of your website, which in turn will have a positive impact on your ranking. With our maintenance offers, we give you the possibility to host your site with us, on a LiteSpeed Web Server hosting. In addition, with our WordPress maintenance service, you get a monthly comparison of search engine results between you and your competitors. This information can be used to improve your website and consolidate your position.

He knows the wordpress, the hosting and php database as the back of his pocket.And we worked out this migration very smooth. Together we solved it, and myself and my business are very pleased with his approach.100% recommendation & kudo's from out of Belgium!

Websites Seller built my resume site. Deliverables were quickly completed, and I was asked for my feedback at each stage of development. All feedback I gave was implemented in a short time.Another great thing is that he comes with smart solutions, regarding stuff which I didn't initially think of (site security, Google site speed optimization and so on). Basically, he was great, staying in touch, keeping me updated and paid attention to what was most important for my site.Overall, I am very happy with the work done. I highly recommend this developer!
