Content Management Systems (CMS) are a critical component when creating and maintaining websites. These systems allow website owners to create and update content within a website without the need to understand technical programming like HTML, JavaScript and CSS.

A CMS is just like any other piece of software, such as an anti-virus program, and it needs to be kept up-to-date to make sure it is safe from hackers. The web can be a dangerous place, with hackers constantly coming up with new ways to cause trouble, so you will want to be sure your site is as prepared as possible for any attacks. Making sure your CMS software is up to date is one of the best ways of doing this.

You will have invested a lot of money into your website so you should make sure you’re getting the most out of it. You could be missing out on some new key features or your website could perform better in Google if you had a newer version of your CMS.

Updating your CMS involves duplicating your entire website, upgrading it and testing it. Utopia encourages an annual review of your website and CMS. Contact us to discuss your next website and CMS upgrade.
