Your website looks great!  You keep the content updated and its smashing it.  But did you know there is a whole stack of components behind the scenes that keeps your website online, performant and secure?

My article was recently published over at CUSO Magazine that covers just this topic.

And if you didn’t know about all these other parts, this is why it’s important to choose a reputable web hosting company to help you manage the entire stack.  The good news is CU*Answers Web Services covers most of these updates for you.

CU*Answers Web Services’ hosting infrastructure is designed specifically for the WordPress sites we host.  Every Sunday night we automatically update all available plugins and WordPress core code to keep everyone current and secure.  This is in addition to the security layers we have in place.

CU*Answers Web Services is also managing the PHP programming language versions that power your website.  Just his month, our developers moved over 150 credit union and corporate websites to the latest version.

For the server components, operating system and hardware, CU*Answers Web Services works hand in hand with the CU*Answers Network Services team.  Some aspects are updated regularly as part of our daily and weekly procedures.  Others are updated during our regularly scheduled maintenance windows.  The physical hardware is changed as warranties expire.

Most, if not all, of this happens behind the scenes because it is managed by your hosting company, CU*Answers Web Services.  If you have any questions about these processes, please do not hesitate to contact us.
