There are many benefits WordPress Websites offer, from the ease to maintain, consistency of all pages, Google finds it inviting (which means SEO friendly), mobile friendly and allows you to share your expertise with its on board blogging platform.
Like with everything in life there are some issues. WordPress has some bugs as well. According to Here Next Year dot com, “Plugin updates and WordPress software version upgrades can sometimes be a problem. For most, it’s just a click of a button and everything is fine. For some, they’ll click an update or upgrade link and all of a sudden they have a blank screen displaying on their website. Like with any cms product that uses a database to push content to be viewed, eventually there will come a time when you need to get some technical help even if for something as simple as upgrading plugins. The key is to learn how to backup your files and database, then do the upgrade or updates, and be able to revert back to the backed-up version if you need to. And, by all means, make sure your website manager knows to do that too before just updating or upgrading out of the blue.”
Backing up your website is a good practice no matter what platform you are using. Backing up your website is like backing up your computer – needs to be done.
