In the world of computers and Internet, things get old pretty fast and that is one of the reason why we see WordPress software getting lot of updates frequently. This makes sure that WordPress not only stays safe from vulnerabilities but also gives you latest features that play major role in your blog’s success. We’ve been regular readers of various blogs about blogging and all these gurus suggest the same, why is that? They all understand the security concerns associated with WordPress and how one can stay peacefully after the upgrade.
Is there any role of web host in this?
I doubt if there is any web-host who helps you in upgrading your WordPress blog. However, there are various other scripts that they have to upgrade at their end (Mysql server, IIS, phpMyAdmin, Apache server etc.) in order to ensure that their servers are hacker safe. Most of the popular webhosts like WPWebhost, Dreamhost, LunarPages ensure that they use up to date scripts on all their servers. It’s important to ensure that you choose your webhost wisely.
I hope that now you understand the importance of upgrade and the right webhost. Servers and blogging software are inter-connected with lot of things and all these scripts should be up to date in order to ensure that there is no zero day attack that’ll compromise your hard work!
