Hackers are getting clever. Getting access to a vulnerable website is just a first step for them. Then, they use this website to infect unprotected computers of people who visit it. Imagine the consequences when it’s revealed that it was your website that had spread malware to others. Regular website updates are the easiest way to shield yourself from that risk.
Everybody knows it. First, you need to backup and restore it to check if it’s ok. Then you need to install updates one by one. After that, you need to check if nothing got broken during the update and the website is working normally. And finally, you have to fix possible display errors. And it gets more complicated if you do not want to perform an update on a live website.
But updating doesn’t have to be this way. Imagine a tool that does the backup and automatically restores it remotely. Then it installs all the updates and tests the website for you, pointing out potential errors you should fix. All with just one click. And this tool has a name. It’s Perfect Dashboard.
With Perfect Dashboard, every web developer can become a professional website maintenance provider and offer management services at compelling prices. This turns one-time clients into a recurring source of income. Branded reports, that can be generated from Perfect Dashboard, help to show what actions has been undertaken and make a great attachment to a monthly invoice.
But it’s not only about the money. It’s about making the Internet a safer place. It’s about how decision makers see Joomla and WordPress. Right now, their reputation is tarnished as, according to recent research, every minute some outdated WordPress/Joomla website is being hacked. We want to change this and prove that a regularly updated Joomla or WordPress is far more secure than most custom CMS. But we need your help. Together we can accomplish this goal and prove that a CMS we are working with is rock solid.
