This is a question we hear all the time from new clients. Is WordPress Maintenance Important? Without being too cliche the short answer is, “Are oil changes important?” They are sort of the same thing and are grouped into similar categories — maintenance.
WordPress is an iterative Content Management System, the same as WordPress Plugins, WordPress Themes and other related technology. Versions are finished, shipped, released and then updated. The process is never ending and it is meant to be this way. New features are added, old code is deprecated and security vulnerabilities are banished.
When a professional performs maintenance on your WordPress site they are basically giving your site an oil change or a doctor’s checkup. We make sure all site files (theme and database) are backed up. We install the latest version of WordPress to give access to new features and secure your site. Theme files and plugins are updated (as needed) to ensure everything is safe secure and runs smoothly.
So, when you ask, Is WordPress Maintenance Important? The answer is Yes. The longer answer is Very.
