Is your WordPress site secure?

Good question. We'll start with a quick survey - these questions are a little technical, but stick with it!

  • Is your hosting account secure and is it running the latest version of PHP and MySQL
  • Is your WordPress installation up-to-date with no pending updates?
  • Are all of your plugins up-to-date?
  • Is your database running on with standard table prefix?
  • Do you log into WordPress with the "admin" user account?
  • Are your WordPress account passwords strong enough?

There is a lot more to WordPress security, but if you answered No to (or can't answer) any of the above questions, it is time to give your site a security health check.

WordPress Security Hardening

What is WordPress Security hardening and why is it necessary? WordPress is, in a word, "Free" (Open Source). There is a vast, wonderful, community behind WordPress, contributing to WordPress, building Themes and Plugins. Unfortunately new vulnerabilities are found in plugins and commercial themes daily.

So, how do you mitigate the risk presented by these vunerabilities? Firstly, keep your site backed up. Secondly, stay on top of WordPress updates. And finally, get in touch with us to perform a WordPress security audit on your site. We will take a very critical look at your WordPress installation and enhance site security to current best practices.

Why should you make sure your WordPress site is secure?

Well, with over 76 Million active WordPress powered websites online, WordPress is a large target for hackers.

Hacks can include the following:

  • Hackers using your site to send out thousands of Spam e-mails.
  • Hackers using your site as a basis for Phishing scams. Your site is reported as a potential “Attack Site” by Google.
  • Hackers using your site to advertise/redirect to third party pages selling various “performance enhancing” medication or porn sites.
  • Simply hacking your site to take it offline.

As you can imagine, none of the above are ideal for any website. Hacks damage your brand and visitor confidence. The hacks above will also have a negative effect on your hard earned search rankings.

If your site has already been hacked, we can help restore and secure your WordPress site back online.
