Set it and forget it? No.
One of the most time-consuming aspects of having a website is the reality of maintaining it. It’s like shaving and showering: it takes time away from other things, but it still needs to get done.
Having a “set it and forget it” attitude to your site’s maintenance can lead to major problems that impact its performance, functionality and security.
Plugins, themes and core WordPress files all receive updates in order to resolve bugs, security vulnerabilities and more. We’ll make sure all of them are running the most recent version.
