Hands-off WordPress Maintenance

Your WordPress updates, security, backups and caching is all taken care of when your site is with WPhost.

Staying on top of WordPress updates is a must for your sites performance and security. However, managing what seems like a never ending task of constant WordPress updates is a time consuming hassle and is often missed in our busy lives. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have a hosting provider that will take care of updates for you!

WPhost is a NZ managed WordPress hosting provider so we’ll actually take care of all WordPress core updates for you – you don’t have to worry about them at all!

WordPress continually improves upon their versions and releases updates to upgrade their software and enhance security. It’s vitally important to stay on top of updates as running an outdated WordPress version can lead to a hacked website. WPhost eliminates that headache as we’ll take care of all WordPress core updates and make sure your version is good to go!

You can also offload the tedious task of plugin updates! Simply enrol your site in our Managed Plugin Updates service and our team will update any plugins on your site with a new version. If anything breaks, we’ll roll the update back and tag in our support team of WordPress experts to troubleshoot.

WordPress Core Updates

By default, we automatically update customer sites to the latest version of the WordPress core – although you may opt out of major version updates. Because WPhost handles updates for you, you cannot run updates from within your WordPress Admin backend.

Security releases

In the case of a security release, we install the release as soon as possible due to the often-critical nature of the fixes. You will receive an email when this update is complete. We cannot defer these installations or allow you to remain on the previous version.

Security releases are automatically installed within 24-72 hours of release.

Major releases

Major WordPress releases are rolled out roughly two weeks after their official release. When an updated version is available, we will send an email to let you know when your site has been updated automatically.

Major releases are automatically upgraded within two weeks after release.
