Firstly, backups are essential to ensuring the safety of your website’s data. If something goes wrong, such as a server crash or a malicious attack, your website could be irreparably damaged. Backing up your site regularly ensures that you have a recent, safe copy of your website’s data that you can easily restore.

In addition to backups, regularly checking and updating your plugins and WordPress core is essential for keeping your site secure and running smoothly. Plugins and the WordPress core are constantly being updated to fix security vulnerabilities, improve performance, and add new features. Failing to update can leave your site vulnerable to attacks and cause it to run slowly or even crash.

So, what happens if you don’t do backups or updates? Well, without backups, your website’s data is at risk of being permanently lost. This could include content, images, and even customer data such as orders and contact information. Without updates, your site could become slow and unstable, or even be hacked, causing damage to your brand reputation and potentially exposing sensitive customer data.

By doing regular checks and updates, you can ensure that your website is always up-to-date with the latest security patches and features. This will help to keep your website running smoothly and prevent any issues from arising.

SDDS Web Design offers a maintenance option where all of these checks and balances are done on a weekly or monthly basis. This can help to give you peace of mind knowing that your website is being taken care of by professionals who know what they’re doing.
