OnlySecureWP.com Securing WordPress Websites From Hackers, Virsuses & Malware
Keeping Your WordPress Site Secure
How do we secure WordPress websites? First we evaluate your site to make sure everything is locked down tight. We start with a scan of your files and directories to make sure permissions are correct. We then check to make sure that your core files and plugins are all up to date and safe from future exploits. After that, we’ll set up monitoring and blocking of malicious traffic to your website.
Once that is in place, we make sure that your user authentication is set up securely so no unwanted traffic will get in. After we’ve finished, we’ll make sure that we apply any new updates quickly after they are released. We’ll continue monitoring your site for as long as you have a subscription with us. We monitor your site’s health so you can focus on more important things, and no, we don’t care where your site is hosted.

One of the biggest problems in the website design, development, and hosting industry, is that there is too much finger pointing. As a customer, if something goes wrong with your website, you might have the company who created your website tell you that the problem is your hosting provider. You call your hosting provider only to have them pass the blame to the company who created your website. Hacks happen indiscriminately and we’re here to make sure that we clean them up when they do. If you haven’t had your WordPress website hacked yet, we can make sure it doesn’t happen in the future.
At OnlySecureWP.com,we understand that the only thing that matters when your site is hacked is making sure it’s up and running again, quickly.
Why Is WordPress Security So Important?
WordPress is a popular hosting platform. How popular? Approximately 1 out of every 4 websites use WordPress as the platform for their website. This is largely because WordPress is highly customizable and has a great deal of functionality that has been developed (both free and paid). WordPress is also easy for website novices to make changes to. As a content management system, there isn’t much you can’t do with WordPress. It’s not often you find something in the programming industry that is usable by experts and novices alike. At last count, there were over 74 million WordPress websites in existence.
Being so widely used is both a blessing and a curse. While there is so much functionality available for WordPress sites, it also makes a juicy target for hackers. Many of these hackers simply send out “botnets” to check for exploits on thousands of websites a day. If your website isn’t secure and updated, eventually they’ll probe your website and that’s where your troubles begin. Why would a hacker want to pay for their own servers when they can exploit yours for free? Contact us for more information.
