WordPress Security Issues
“Out of the box” WordPress is not secure.
You can be proactive and properly harden your WordPress installation to avoid getting hacked or infected with malware.
Or you can be reactive and be forced to deal with it when your site is down because it was attacked.
- I provide WordPress security services on both ends of the spectrum. Any new website I build or host includes securing WordPress in the quote. It is so necessary that I do not provide it as an optional service.
- I also provide WordPress security services to remove malware and clean hacked websites. I then secure your site and make recommendations so it doesn’t happen again.
Why does my WordPress site keep getting hacked?
Just cleaning a hacked website is not enough. If you don’t secure the source of where the hacker is gaining access, they will come back.
Don’t Ask Your Host to Fix it.
If you contact your host to help you with a hacked website, they may restore your site to a clean version , but this is a temporary fix. You need to make changes to secure your site to prevent it from happening again. Then maintain it ongoing.
WordPress maintenance plans are a good way to keep your website code secure and up to date proactively. I offer one time services to fix your WordPress site if it’s been infected. (Although I highly recommend WordPress maintenance packages to fix and then keep your site secure.
WordPress Security Review
If you’re not sure if your WordPress site is secure, I will review it for free, telling you 3 vulnerabilities I see without even needing a login to your site.
I’ll give you a 4th “freebie” since I can’t check this but know it applies to almost every project I take on.
