While the visual content may be updated periodically, the framework behind the scenes needs to be updated continually, backed up and, if necessary, repaired to remain stable.
With a WordPress Maintenance Service Agreement, blueunderground will update the WordPress core, the WordPress plugins and the WordPress theme to keep the site secure. Because WordPress plugins have many different authors, updates are released on a rolling basis. This is in addition to the unscheduled release of updates to the WordPress core and WordPress themes. Additional to keeping the site secure and providing new features, these updates keep the SEO services up to date to better position your website in the marketplace, properly aligning them with search engines like Google and Bing. The website should also be backed up on a regular basis and copies of the website should be stored both in the cloud and on premises.
blueunderground will incorporate WordPress security, which can include a firewall with a threat defense feed that is updated in real-time as new threats emerge. Country blocking is available and can be customized to restrict WordPress logins from outside of the United States per your preference. If applied, arrangements can be made when site managers are on travel. Country blocking can be limited to WordPress logins, allowing site visitors to look at the website from any country they visit.
blueunderground recommends also maintaining a development copy of the website, going forward, to test updates before they are rolled out on the live site, to minimize interruptions.
