Website Security

Website Hacking Is a Serious Problem

You’ve heard about it on the news. Some of our largest corporations and even our own national security cyber apparatus have been hacked through the years.

My own websites are under constant attack, and yours probably are too, whether you’re aware of it or not. Someday they’re going to succeed.

Having a site hacked obviously means fewer customers and sales during the downtime, but it also leaves you vulnerable in other ways too:

A hacked WordPress site can cause serious damage to your reputation. Hackers can install malicious software, steal user information, passwords, and even pass off malware to your users. Worse, you may find yourself paying the hackers because they’ve installed ransomware on your site.

But wait! there’s more:

  • Web hosting providers will close hacked accounts for security reasons.
  • Hacked websites can get re-routed — sometimes to malicious sites, or just to other sites wanting to steal your traffic
  • Hacked websites can get blacklisted by search engines – not great for business!
  • Hacked websites can get you into legal problems — the hackers can perform fraud and other illegal acts from your site, leaving you with tremendous legal headaches

At the very least, having your website hacked will cost you time and usually money to recover from the attack.

It is estimated that nearly 30,000 websites are infected with some type of malware each and every day. If your site hasn’t been hacked (yet), you’re either lucky or well off the beaten path (which is not where you need to be if you want your website working for you!). 

Can you afford to ignore the risk?

You need Grade A Security for your website — 24 hour non-stop, 365 days a year.

The good news: you’re in the right place.

I can provide the security you need, guaranteed.

It’s best to do it in conjunction with my Managed Hosting Plan so that I know you have a nice, ultra-secure hosting environment, but I can also work with your hosting if you insist.

Here’s the plan:

Initial Setup Audit your site’s current status and implement appropriate fixes. Fully secure your WordPress website with the latest version of appropriate high level security software.  Create full and complete backup stored offsite for safety.
Ongoing Monitor status, keep software upgraded and other security threats avoided, minimized and/or deleted. Automatic full and complete backups.
