WordPress Security Plan
Your Best Defence Against Being Hacked
The world wide web can be a dangerous world to play in. Your website – like any other online software – is subjected to frequent attacks from hackers around the globe. Even small websites with low traffic volumes are targeted. And it makes little difference which website software you’re using; they’re all vulnerable to being exploited by hackers. The good news is that you can drastically reduce your vulnerability footprint with a little care and attention. That’s why we’ve created our WordPress Security Plan.
Prevention is better than cure. For WordPress users, this means you need to keep your website software – WordPress, themes, plugins – up to date. Our WordPress Security Plan is where we proactively manage this process for you on an ongoing basis. By staying up to date, you vastly minimise the likelihood of your WordPress website being hacked. While no one can guarantee 100% security, the alternative – ignoring your website updates – will mean that your website will become an attractive target for hackers.

One-time Security Update
Want a one-time security update?
No problem, we can help. As we’ve said above, running a one-off update is not as safe as subscribing to our WordPress Security Plan, where your website is regularly tended to as and when required. However, it is certainly a must-do if/when security issues become known.
Have your WordPress website secured ASAP
The costs for a one-off security update can vary from one website to another. Please contact us and we will be able to provide a quote for our assistance.
How quickly we can perform a one-off WordPress security update will depend on our workflow at any given time. Clients on a WordPress Security Plan are prioritised over casual customers.
WordPress Security Summary
Can WordPress be hacked?
Yes it can. The fact is, any website software is subject to attack from hackers. Certain older versions of WordPress are known to have severe security issues. The current version of WordPress is secure, but there is no guarantee that security flaws will not be discovered in future.
How can I protect my WordPress website from hackers?
Your best form of defence against being hacked is to keep your WordPress website up to date. Make sure you are on top of the latest WordPress updates, including theme and plugin updates. There are other more advanced methods of protecting your website that a professional developer can assist you with.
How do I fix a hacked WordPress website?
Updating WordPress and its plugins after the fact may not be enough. You should contact a professional website developer who is experienced with WordPress. They will be able to clean your website and identify the weakness that allowed your site to be hacked in the first place.
Shouldn’t my web host stop my website from being hacked?
Not unless you are paying them for some kind of protection plan. Most web hosts are not web designers and so they will not touch your website. The fact is your website is your responsibility. You should either manage your website security yourself or have a website professional to help you.
