WordPress websites make up over a quarter (25%) of the entire Internet! Due to its popularity, WordPress websites are easily targeted by hackers using automated attacks.
A hacked WordPress website is bad for business. A hacked WordPress website can tank your Google rankings. A hacked WordPress website can get your customers data stolen.
Securing a WordPress website before it’s compromised is actually a straightforward process but is often overlooked. Not all web design or marketing agencies specialize in WordPress security.
The most common reasons a WordPress website is hacked are also the easiest to avoid.
When you’re busy running your business, it’s hard to remember to keep your WordPress website secure, but neglecting security is not an option either.
We can help you secure your WordPress website, remove any malware from your web hosting, and keep your site secured moving forward.
WordPress websites are usually hacked due to the use of weak passwords, password data breach dumps, or from compromised scripts on your web server.
We remove malware by accessing your web server and database directly.
Our knowledge of WordPress and experience working with server security allows us to quickly find suspicious and malicious files.
These compromised files are removed and if necessary, replaced with new copies from the WordPress repository or wherever they originate from.
If your web browser says Not Secured at the top, next to your website address, that does not mean your website has been hacked or is compromised.
This warning appears when a website does not have a valid SSL certificate or if the connection is not secure (HTTPS://).
Every website should have an SSL certificate to a secure, encrypted connection between the web server and the website visitor, but don’t be alarmed just because you see Not Secure next to your website address.
We offer around the clock security services, monitoring your site for unusual activity, unexpected file changes, or known vulnerabilities.
In addition to this, we can keep your website up to date, install or renew SSL certificates, and anything else to help you keep your WordPress website secure.
