Managed WordPress Service, what’s in it for me and why would I care?

A valid question indeed. If you aren’t familiar with our WordPress Managed service you can read more about it here. In a nutshell, it is a completely hands-off way to make sure your WordPress website is up to date and secure. Most importantly, secure.

Entropic Studio gets a lot of questions regarding those notifications at the top of the dashboard that say, “WordPress X.X is available! Please update now.”

Let’s consider the following:

WPBeginner-Upgrade-WordPress-infographicAccording to WPBeginner, 83% of hacked WordPress sites hadn’t been updated. According to page.ly’s stats, WordPress sites are frequently hacked due to “outdated versions of: PHP, WordPress, themes, or plugins”. WebDesign.com says, “by not updating, you are leaving your sites buggy and open to being hacked.” Finally, WordPress founder Matt Mullenweg begs users to update WordPress in How to Keep WordPress Secure.

Web apps such as WordPress are software, so you need to update them just like you update your operating system (Windows or Mac OS), applications, smartphone apps, etc. Updates to WordPress core, plugins, and themes often increase security by patching vulnerabilities and strengthening against attacks. To reduce the risk of your site being hacked or compromised in some other way, update!

And, that’s where WordPress Managed comes in

That’s why we proudly offer WordPress Managed!

We consider WordPress Managed Preventative Care

WordPress Managed is not just about making sure your files are up to date. It’s also about keeping your site secure. The average cost to recover your website from an attack is anywhere between $2,000-$10,000 and, this is not including the potential loss of business and reputation. Once it’s hacked, your website could be blacklisted by Google and other search engines. That means the site may not be coming up in search results and/or when it does, there is a message alerting users that the site might be compromised. That’s not good for your business. Most users are unaware that their websites have been hacked until they start losing business or are told by a customer trying to reach them.
