What is the Problem?
We’ve observed an increase in the number of WordPress websites being hacked. WordPress has become the most popular website platform and therefore the greatest target for hackers.
We love WordPress and plan to continue using it, but security is a critical consideration. In many cases, hackers are able to exploit vulnerability in WordPress installs or plugins that are outdated. It’s critical that these components are kept up-to-date.
Most hackers attempt to keep their efforts a secret. Often they simply want to redirect your visitors to their sites, usually to inject viruses. Other times their motivation is to trash your website and database simply to cause damage. And sometimes their goal is to use your website as a repository where they can host thousands of pages for others to access.
Fixing a hacked website costs a lot more than prevention. Our PMR service is required for all WordPress websites that we host or manage.
|What We Do||Why It’s Important|
|Promptly Install WordPress Updates. We constantly monitor your website and install WordPress updates for core files and plugins as needed.||Keeping your website and components up-to-date increases security and greatly reduces chances of it being compromised. WordPress websites require frequent updating – sometimes multiple times per month.|

|Monitoring for Malware, Viruses and Hackers||Hacked sites can become blacklisted by Google. Your Google reputation and SEO can be severely penalized. Visitors to a hacked site may have their computer infected with a virus.|
|Immediately Correct Issues If your site is compromised we’ll work to correct it immediately at no additional cost to you.||Issues must be resolved as soon as possible. Site outage will affect visitors, reputation and SEO status.|
|Work with Google to Resolve We’ll work with Google to restore your reputation, remove bad links, and manage requests for re-evaluation.||It’s critical to manage the effects of a compromised site quickly and correctly to minimize the damage to reputation and SEO status.|
|Traffic Filtering and Complete Blocking when Necessary||Several countries don’t enforce internet laws or polite practices. Sometimes it becomes necessary to completely block certain regions from accessing your site. Romania and Russia are two of the most common offenders.|
