WordPress Site Security

Keeping your WordPress Website Humming 24/7

When you leave your house, do you close the front door? Lock it? Maybe even set an alarm? (Or if you are me, have several scary-sounding dogs!)

How about your website? Do you know how to make sure it is closed up securely, so no one can hack in, mess up your website right in the middle of a big launch, or otherwise stain your reputation?

Your business could come to a screeching halt if your website goes haywire.

Or, you could relax - whether you are at the pool or on a stage in front of a thousand people, pitching your latest product - knowing your website will always be working for you 24/7, safe and secure.

Keeping Your Website Secure

Strong Passwords

Make it hard for hackers to walk through the front door. Use a unique, not-easy-to-guess password for your Wordpress site - one you don't use ANYWHERE else. (LastPass can keep your passwords handy.)


Updated and secure

Close security vulnerabilities by updating Wordpress, plugins and themes weekly (and before updates). Then have good security monitoring that lets you know when someone is trying to break in.

Important notes:

  1. This plan does not include site content updates or fixes.
  2. Updates to WordPress, plugins or themes may result in unanticipated failures and require troubleshooting to fix, or replacement of outdated plugins.
  3. Security measures are never 100% bullet-proof. In the unlikely event your site is hacked and/or infected with malware, restoration of backups and/or site fixes may be required.

Costs for these items, due to the unknown complexity, are billed at my current hourly rate (or charged against package hours, if applicable). Work commences only after client approval.
