The Importance of Keeping your WordPress up to date 04Sep View this email in your browser The importance of keeping your plugins and themes in WordPress updated Keeping your website up to date is very important for many reasons. While WordPress is not very vulnerable on its own, when combined with plugins, themes and different hosting environments, it starts becoming more vulnerable. However, keeping everything up to date, ensures that any security bugs found are patched & is an important factor in ensuring a safe environment for your website. Remember, updating plugins is easier than fixing a hacked website. Keeping your WordPress website updated regularly ensures that: Your website is secure from the threat of hackers and malware Your data remains intact Your website remains functional and you dont experience downtime Your website is faster and free of bugs You get access to cool new features! Updating is like taking out an insurance policy, its a preventative measure that can save you a lot of time, frustration and expense later on. Anyone who runs a website should put updating plugins at the very top of their list of priorities. It may not seem important when that notification pops up, but it is easy to do and can save you from serious problems later on. Copyright © *2018 New Media One*, All rights reserved.
