Why you should invest in WordPress Maintenance

While building a website, you need to choose the right platform to create a website. There are a lot of Content Management Systems available in the market. Out of them, Wordpress is the best platform because it comes with an array of options, plugins and templates. This blog will highlight the basics of Wordpress and how you can create a website using Wordpress as a CMS.

WordPress is the best framework ever, accounting for 64.1% of all websites using a content management system. 35.9% of all websites use WordPress as a content management system. You should ensure that you find a WordPress Maintenance Partner who will take care of and update your website following the latest industry standards and trends. In our capacity as an experienced WordPress developer, we would like to share some insights and experiences with you.

Thus, it is even more important that you either appoint someone within your organization to manage your WordPress Website infrastructure or hire WordPress maintenance services. It is this designated individual’s responsibility to ensure all WordPress Core and Plugin updates, conflicts, and website backups are handled.

A WordPress Developer with at least 4-5 years of Coding experience would be ideal for your maintenance plan. Website design is a value addition but not essential. Perhaps you should consider outsourcing these services.

When performing maintenance on a WordPress website, what do you need to remember?


The first step you need to take is to backup, backup, and backup. There is a high possibility that you will not be able to recover your data if you do not have a backup. In addition to being very frustrating, rebuilding your entire website may result in lost sales as your customers will be unable to find you, contact you, or find out more information about your organization.

WordPress Updates

We know from experience that you should check if your plugins and themes are compatible with the latest WordPress version. Some WordPress Plugins can be recommended for checking the compatibility of your Theme with your WordPress version. If you do it yourself, you may wish to take a look at the Theme Check Plugin, which can be found on the WordPress.org website.

Based on the author’s description, the theme check plugin serves as an easy way to test a theme to confirm it meets the latest standards for theme reviews. With it, you can run all the same automated testing tools that WordPress.org uses for theme submissions on your theme.

Testing is conducted through a simple admin menu, and results are displayed simultaneously. For theme developers or anyone else who wishes to ensure that their theme adheres to the latest standards and practices for themes, this is very useful.


In addition to your theme, we will also need to take care of your plugins. You may be using outdated plugins that are no longer supported, or the developers failed to prepare the plugin for the next WordPress upgrade. The Better Plugin Compatibility Control Plugin can be used to determine if your plugins are compatible with the current version of WordPress.
