If you login to your administrator’s panel you may notice that your website has messages for you about available updates. While, in some cases, updating may only produce a few bug corrections and minor improvements, in many cases it includes security patches. Whenever a new exploit is found (and new exploits are found everyday) a security measure has to be written to patch over the vulnerability. As long as there are hackers in the world there will be updates. And, beyond that, as long as technology continues to improve and change there will always be updates.
So what does that mean for you? It means that we have to work with you to develop an update strategy that best fits your needs and your budget.
We feel that it is our responsibility to make you aware that updates are going to be a constant need in order to maintain a website that is free from corruption.
We also feel that it is your choice to decide how often you want to have your website updated.
