How often does my WordPress installation need to be updated and who is responsible for updating it?

You or your agency or webmaster are responsible for maintenance, modifications, and updates. How often you need to update your WordPress, including plug-ins and themes (design templates) depends, among other things, on the number of installed plug-ins and themes. In general, we recommend logging in to the WordPress backend at least once a week to check whether updates are available, and if so installing them. Please note that Hostpoint does not offer application support for third-party apps. Of course, we are happy to help with concrete questions or problems and offer tips where possible.
