    I stopped working on my site before Christmas and began again in January. I then discovered that all my work had disappeared and the only thing remaining were a few photos. When you do a ‘mise a jour’ does that affect my site? I don’t want anything to happen to it again. I’m finding WordPress difficult so the site is taking a long time to put together…

      Hi Sue,

      no, our updates shouldn’t cause data loss. Please, if this should happen again, contact our support within 7 days after the data loss happened. Then we can analyze what exactly happened and why you lost your data.

      Best regards,

    I want WordPress websites to be updated by 1&1 automatically. It is a satisfying job they do.

  3. 4.7.3 update is not showing on my dashboard. Are there plugins that are known to cause updates not to appear?

      Hi Jeffrey,

      you are referring to a Safe Mode installation, right? Seems like our automatic update already happened to you in the mean time.

      Best regards,
      Michael, 1&1
