Introduction

This is a quick step-by-step walkthrough for managing your websites update policy via the 34SP.com Control Panel.

34SP.com can automatically manage and apply updates to your hosting account, ensuring up-to-date software is running on your server. For the majority of users, we recommend that you choose either 'Daily' or 'Weekly' updates, for improved security and performance.

If your website uses out-of-date or deprecated code, 34SP.com does not advise using automatic updates. In this instance, we recommend leaving updates set to 'Manual', and not applying any future updates until the code on your website has been updated.
