Now that you have a website, you'll want to keep it maintained and updated. All too often this is overlooked but it's critically important you take care of your website once you have it.
Ongoing maintenance & housekeeping.
Once you have your website set up just the way you want it, you'll need to maintain it. Website are a constant source of malicious attack and need to be kept up to date often. The more complex your website is, the more maintenance it will require. Software developers update their code constantly. They do this to add new functionality, maintain compliance with governance requirements, fix bugs and to address security vulnerabilities.
What if I do nothing?
Left unchecked, a website could easily become a target for malicious bots looking to for ways to compromise your website. This usually happens with no human intervention by malicious bots that scan thousands of websites for weaknesses. The average website is under constant attack in this way. Not keeping an eye on things and not keeping your site updated significantly increases your chances of being hacked, compromised or your website not functioning correctly.
What happens if I don't keep my website updated?
Eventually, your website will become out of date as software developers update their code. This applies to your plugins, theme and the website code itself. If your website is compromised, perhaps because of a security vulnerability in a piece of software you haven't updated, a number of things could happen. The website could stop functioning altogether, personal details could be compromised or malicious code could be installed that takes over the resources of your website (like causing it to participate in a DDoS attack or to send SPAM).
