Website updates and maintenance Auckland

Maintenance of WordPress

Maintaining a WordPress website yourself can be a time consuming and nerve wracking process. Because it’s tricky, it’s often ignored. However, updates are very important for the security and also the performance of your website.

We can easily carry out website updates and maintenance Auckland wide and, in fact, throughout the country. All we need is access to the backend of your WordPress site.

Applying updates is often the primary maintenance issue on a site. Updates are required often on the WordPress core, plugins and themes. Backups, database optimisation, security setup and monitoring, are also required. These elements all ensure a site stays stable.

Woodswork have several options to make this process less stressful for you. Rather than trying to do this yourself we offer this service.

WordPress updates

Security issues, that could make your site vulnerable, are minimised by doing WordPress updates.

Plugin updates

Plugin updates are carried out for various reasons. These include compatibility with updated WordPress versions, performance and security vulnerabilities.


Security includes preventative measures and monitoring. These measures reduce risk of known threats and identify potential attacks.


Backups are done to allow the site to be recovered if an update causes problems or the site is compromised.

A maintenance service

Regular maintenance enables your website to operate at an optimal level. The level of service required varies upon the type of website and frequency of changes made. Requirements also depend on how important your website is to the running of your business. For example, an online store or site that takes bookings, can’t afford to have down time.

NB: The hosting environment also makes a significant difference to the performance and security of your website.
