“Will my website stop working?” “Will my work be lost?” Here is an explanation what happens when you stop updating your theme and don’t activate a Astratic key license (and why it is nothing to worry about :)).
Astratic key license
First, what is a WordPress theme. It is an element that is responsible for a front-end version of your website. It works for its appearance. Because WordPress is still developed by developers – every WordPress theme author need to do contact changes in a theme code to make it capable, safe and well-suited. This is the reason why you pay for one-year subscription.
In this price is included work of our programmers who watch over every major change in WordPress, popular plugins and so on. They prepare updates to make every website using Astratic theme technically faultless. We work to make the Astratic theme even more awesome than it is now ️?
Why updates are important we explained in a guide about WordPress security.
Updating a theme
Extending the license isn’t obligatory, but we strongly recommend it. Without active subscription (=active key license) you will lost the access to current updates. It means than, even if from the beginning your website is working correctly, you risk a technical troubles in the future. Websites without updated themes are sensitive for hacker attacks, may not work correctly with installed plugins and have worse rankings in search engines.
