Update Your WordPress Website!

WordPresss is the most widely used content management system. However, that also makes it a large target for hackers.  If hackers can access one website they can write scripts to infect tens or hundreds of thousands of websites.  So what makes for good security on your WordPress website?

 

  1. Always keep your version of WordPress Up to Date – upgrade your version. WordPress sometimes fixes their own security holes and implements the fixes into subsequent versions.
  2. Employ IP blocking for your admin – this simple technique will block a lot of options hackers may use to try to get into your site
  3. Harden your WordPress – Add security plugins to make it harder for hackers to find other access points
  4. Get a Specialist on it – Hire a Web Designer who can secure your site for you

Remember, nothing is 100% foolproof when it comes to securing your website but if you don’t do anything you’re going to get hacked for sure. It’s just a matter of time.
