Head’s up and pay attention. It’s pretty important to have your WordPress website updated to 4.7.2. Why? In the last 2 weeks about 50,000 WordPress websites were hacked into because of a specific vulnerability. Read more on the story at WordPress.Org.
If you need assistance with the update, I am happy to offer my services and re-open the $26.oo offer from January: Security Checkup. The fine print is that in an unusual case, for example, where I have not maintained your website previously, there may be additional charges depending on the state of the site including a reduced ‘initial look’ fee. Read more in FAQ.
If you took advantage of the January Security Update offer, but don’t know if your site was updated to 4.7.2, contact me to double-check. I may have already done so, but better for you to stay on top of your website.
For busy websites, where content changes a lot, there is a blog or other bells and whistles, I highly recommend some form of Basic Regular Maintenance, like our $300/year package which includes a monthly backup, upgrades. Click on After Care link on the Website Services Page.
Can I do this myself? Yes! Keeping your WordPress version update is one thing that you can do on your own. Always remember to do a backup before making an update. Update WordPress before updating plugins.
I thought WordPress is very secure. It is very secure. There are smart people who try to get around things. WordPress makes improvements accordingly and tries to stay ahead of the game.
What if I have never used your services? Usually we ask for a one time $50 fee for getting familiar with your website. During this time, that fee is reduced to $27. Total investment: $27 + $26 = $53.00. In order to do the work, we will need some information from you to access your WordPress website and your web host account.
