First, make sure your software is up-to-date
Before you request your hosting company to upgrade the hardware of your servers, you should check if your software is up-to-date and if the server is clean. Did your amount of visitors significantly increase, then it’s possible the current hardware isn’t the perfect choice anymore. However, if things didn’t change a lot, there is a chance your server needs a cleaning. You can choose to restore a backup, do a manual cleanup or to install a tool that can clean the server for you. Outdated software can also lead to a slower server. Besides that, outdated software can be a security risk. Because of that, we recommend you to update your software regularly. In that way you don’t have a server with any well-known vulnerabilities.
