As a web designer I use 1&1’s managed WordPress but on this occasion there was a blip in the way this account was set up and it had to revert to their standard plan.

I believe I have a duty to ensure my clients have the latest version of WordPress as it becomes available and the last thing I need is to spend time doing this manually.

Easy Updates Manager is the perfect answer. A simple UI and perfect results – it also ensures updates quicker than 1&1’s managed process.

Highly recommended. – briannie (@briannie)
