Hosting & Security
WordPress takes a very active roll in eliminating threats such as hacking, malware and viruses. They do this by monitoring threats and continually updating their features and platform coding and then making those updates available to their users.
WordPress also requires their approved theme and plugin developers to update their products with new features and security measures to maintain a safe Internet environment. We are notified when these updates are rolled out and implement them immediately. Failure to update often results in websites crashing and incompatibility issues with themes and plugins.
All of our hosting plans fully cover updates along with backups to both the website content and database content to ensure no information is lost during the update process. When there are major updates to either WordPress or the website’s theme, there may be minimal downtime experienced.
As an additional security measure, we install a high powered security plugin on each of our websites that includes a firewall, anti-virus scanning, cellphone sign-in (two factor authentication), malicious URL scanning and live traffic including crawlers. It is the only WordPress security plugin that permanently secures your website from brute force hacks and can verify and repair your core, theme and plugin files, even if you don’t have backups.
This security plugin is currently 100% free. We also offer a Premium API key that gives you Cellphone Sign-in via SMS, lets you block countries and schedule scans for specific times.
