Answer 

Consistently making sure your website/Wordpress it up to date is very important. Most times you should recieve an e-mail that alerts you to updates. If you don't, in wordpress You can check for updates by going to your Wordpress control panel, clicking “Dashboard,” and then “Updates.” The update process and instructions are simple to follow and can be found in your control panel.

An important step before updating your site is backing it up. In rare cases a Wordpress update can break your website and will need to be fixed by a web developer.  You can copy all your files and export your database in order to back up your website, or you can just use one of many free tools (Provided by Wordpress themselves) which will make backing up your site quick and easy. 

Another way to keep your website and your e-mail clean is by regularly scanning your computer for viruses. It's important to have an up-to-date virus scanner on your computer at all times EVEN if you use a Mac. We recommend customers use Eset Nod32, Spybot Search and Destroy, and Malwarebytes. These are all free (Eset is a 30 day trial) and will play nice if all running on the same computer.

We are glad to have you all as customers and want what's best for you. These things will not only protect your website, e-mail, and information therein, but can also prevent you from getting a disabled account due to spam. Finally, it also helps prevent our mail servers from being blacklisted which is a huge inconvenience to anyone that may be sharing that mail server.
