The Importance of Updates
Hackers are busy looking loopholes in a website’s machinery in order to gain access to data, cause damage or exploit the website for their purposes.
Coders are constantly keeping an eye out for these loopholes and patching them up as quickly as possible. These patched updates are then made available to vulnerable websites.
The average website will need security updates on a weekly basis. This is a service included in our combined web hosting and maintenance package.
Web Technology Updates
A website utilises multiple technologies in its various building blocks. These blocks of programming code can be like lots of little machines working together within a larger machine. Developers around the world are constantly working hard on upgrading these little machines to do more advancing things and serve us better. When programming code is upgraded it may have unexpected effects on other code which will therefore also need upgrading so that they can continue to work well together.
A typical CMS website will need multiple updates to the core installation and/or plugins every week to reduce the risks and keep everything working well.
Installations are often manual and do not always run smoothly. Things occasionally break and need repairing. Checks must be carried out to ensure everything on the website is working as desired.
Pathlight Design will install all these updates as part of a combined web hosting and maintenance package (see below).
