Hosting NerdCare Assurance: Proactive Maintenance

In our continuing series on Nerds On Site’s Hosting NerdCare Assurance, I would like to talk about our preventative maintenance provisions in our Silver NerdCare package. As a Pembrokeshire proverb says, “Eat an apple on going to bed, And you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.”
CMS-based websites, such as Joomla, Drupal and WordPress have become very popular. Due to their popularity, however, they have become a prime target for hackers. Generally speaking, if a hacker can determine a vulnerability in one of these technologies, they can write a worm that automatically search for and hacks all other websites built on the same CMS.
The developers behind all the popular Content Management Systems work hard at releasing updates to their product to combat this hacking activity. However, this becomes an extreme inconvenience to many clients, both because you just want to focus on running your business, and also because some of these patches can take advanced technical knowledge to deploy. Our Silver NerdCare package covers all these updates, and our team will patch your website as they are released. This procedure allows us to close all known vulnerabilities in your website before hackers can take advantage of them.
This level of support translates really resulting a protection of your image and brand, as well assuring the quickest possible response times and smallest amount of downtime. At the end of the day, Hosting NerdCare Assurance will have a direct effect on your bottom line, by ensuring that your website is up all the time!
