A website serves as a digital storefront. And much like a traditional storefront, it needs to be maintained to keep it safe, clean, and most importantly attractive to customers. With the internet always evolving, it’s important to keep the basics in mind:
Is Your WordPress Site Up-to-Date?
WordPress and associated plug-ins regularly release updates to their interface, tools, and services. These updates are essential as they work to improve the stability, performance, and security of a website.
Developed in line with the latest technologies, they actively tackle the security vulnerabilities that may arise during a website’s lifespan. These updates will help to ensure that you are limiting vulnerabilities, and keeping your website, and its data secure.
With technology constantly changing, you never know what may go wrong. At MUV, we like to be prepared. That’s why, we create daily backups of all our websites and have round-the-clock security scans running. And, for an extra layer of protection, we use Cloudflare, a global internet security network that helps improve web performance and connection speeds.
A website’s goal is to reach and convert the most people possible. However, the more steps a user has to take to achieve their goal, the less likely they are to do so. Therefore, it’s important to have a website designed with a wide range of user experiences in mind, especially for customers with disabilities.
By simplifying content, streamlining design, and expanding navigation options we can ensure a more accessible customer experience.
For clients targeting audiences in countries within The European Union, new accessibility rules may soon come into play, following a recent audit of the European Accessibility Act. Changes to these guidelines will impact both public and private sector businesses. Our team will be monitoring these changes and exploring opportunities for website improvements with applicable clients.
If you would like us to undertake a full audit of your website’s security, update status, performance, or accessibility please just drop us a line.
