WordPress Maintenance

Expert WordPress Administration and Maintenance

According to wordpress.org, in 2017 more than 26% of the web ran on the WordPress open-source content management system.  Try to put that number into perspective for a minute; one in every four websites is currently running on WordPress.  That mind-boggling statistic speaks volumes to the popularity of the platform due to its low cost of ownership, its flexibility, it’s mountains of plugins and add-ons, and its speed to market.  However, it also means that it’s a prime source for hackers and other general miscreants.

Akismet stats claim that WordPress websites get 132 million spam messages every month, and building on the scary number, less than 1/3 of all WordPress installations are actively updated or running the latest version of the platform.  So using 2018 website estimates that we dug up from Tek Eye and a little middle-school algebra, we can calculate that there are nearly 594 million websites that are potentially vulnerable to security threats as a result of not maintaining the WordPress environment properly.

Many website owners don’t know that owning a WordPress website requires a commitment to updating the platform consistently to ensure that the build, the server, and even plugins are up to date.  Failing to do so puts your website content at risk, potentially compromises sensitive data, and could potentially expose your visitors to attacks that put their private data at risk.  And as new privacy laws are written the risks to a website owner for not maintaining their technology are significant.
