Security

86% of sites are hacked due to outdated WordPress, plugins or themes.

Your website could be vulnerable to hackers and breaches just from being outdated. Removing weak points and pesky bugs that are abused by hackers can improve the security of your website. Updating your core architecture, plugins, and themes will do the trick. Website security is the primary reason for website maintenance.

You can find out what your website is experiencing by installing security plugins. WordFence is a great option. This plugin can prevent breaches, see blocked countries & IPs, protect your website from attacks and more.
