WordPress Site Security

The Need for Security is Real!


burglarI’m fed up with hackers! They are vermin lurking around every dark corner of the internet, trying to find ways to break into and exploit your site.

I’ve spent way too much time cleaning up people’s hacked sites and I’m sick of it. I generally get paid fairly well to do it, no complaints there, but the scum that think they have the right to steal and use other people’s property completely piss me off.

And . . . it is absolutely relentless. Generally the hackers send their “bots” to search out and exploit weaknesses they might find in your website. Because the attack is so mechanized your site can be hammered hundreds of times a day. This slows everything down, it overloads your server and, if they do find a way in, it can not only lead to the destruction of your site, but also your domain name being “blacklisted” by the search engines and site malware monitors.

Imagine someone visiting your site and seeing the message “Warning, visiting this site may harm your computer!” They’d back out immediately and head the other way.

The effects on your valuable assets (your site) are serious. Over the years, I’ve been given the task of cleaning up many sites after they’ve been infected and compromised; it can get very expensive.

You don’t want this to happen to you!

So . . . what to do?

Taking the issue seriously is the first step towards a solution. Taking proper precautions is the next. Luckily, once you’ve decided to protect yourself there are a number of simple things that will block out the vast majority of hacking attempts. And should one of those nefarious intruders (hackers) find their way in, there are easy ways to both find out AND restore your site to it’s clean functional state.

I believe in simplicity and with that in mind I take a four step approach to site security:

  1. Make access to the admin of your site near bulletproof.
  2. Plug the obvious and known vulnerabilities that allow hacker’s in.
  3. Monitor your site for available updates and security breaches.
  4. Keep good backups, making it possible to easily restore a site that has been hacked.

I’ve scoured, researched, tested and I’ve come up with what I think is the best approach for your site's security. I know dealing with the underbelly of a website is not for everyone. For those of you who’d rather just have the piece of mind and let someone else take care of it for you, I’ve put together a few packages for you to choose from. The plan is to make your site’s safety easy so you don’t have to worry about it.

These include:system-lock-screen

Each of these is a great assets on it's own, but I've designed it so they all work together seamlessly creating as safe a website as you can hope for. In fact if you put it all in place and follow my simple directions, I'll warranty your site against security breaches and help you get up and running as quickly as possible for free.
