Update WordPress Like NASA – Without Having A Huge Budget

Posted on: 19/05/17

Did you know that NASA use WordPress?

The National Aeronautic and Space Administration build many of their sites using WordPress.

And who can blame them?

WordPress powers over 28% of the Internet. Users love it because it’s fully customizable and you don’t need to be a space engineer to install it.

But all this comes with a price. Yes, it’s great that there are over 50,000 plugins, but more plugins means more updates.

Are you drowning in a sea of software updates?

Some plugins you installed a while ago might have been abandoned. That means they won’t be updated and they won’t be compatible with the latest version of WordPress.

Theme and plugins that aren’t compatible with the latest version of WordPress could break your site. This could mean lost data, lost revenue and lost customers.

Not only that, over 73% of WordPress sites are vulnerable to hackers.

So while you’re busy trying to grow traffic, market your business, look after customers, and pay your staff…

you have to worry about updating your site everyday and keeping it safe.


Relax. All you need is an experienced team to monitor your WordPress site everyday and update it when necessary; so you can focus 100% on taking your business to the next level.

That’s where a WordPress Monitoring Service comes in.

Imagine having a WordPress site that practically runs itself and makes your life easier

A WordPress Maintenance Service can help you:

  • Keep your data (and your customers details) safe by stopping hackers from infiltrating your site
  • Boost conversions by reducing your bounce rate
  • Protect your website from malware by scanning everyday for site vulnerabilities
  • Backup your website data and pages every month
  • Improve your SEO ranking by increasing your website’s speed and performance

Do you need to hire a full-time WordPress developer, then?

No. Unless you’re as big as NASA, you don’t need somebody working on your WordPress site full-time.

But you do need somebody you can trust to take care of recurring tasks, such as:

  • Uptime/Downtime
  • Visitors and analytics
  • Speed and performance
  • Security threats and vulnerabilities

Having a reliable team checking all of the above and reporting to you on regular basis doesn’t have to be expensive

Here at Design Web, we provide a comprehensive WordPress maintenance service for business owners who don’t have the time to poke through their sites looking for issues and potential problems.

If you want to know more about our WordPress Maintenance & Backup Services, either call us on 01745 508588, or email us: mail@designweb.co.uk

Our WordPress Maintenance page also explains how our service can save you time and money.

If you want to update your WordPress site by yourself, that’s fine too. I suggest doing regular checks to collect data and catch potential problems.

Then, it’s up to you whether to fix them by yourself or hire a WordPress developer to take care of them professionally.

Either way, I hope you enjoyed the article.

All the best,
Paul Lyons
