Security for your WordPress website

Posted on June 24, 2017 at 9:02 am

Websites require a high level of protection due to the increase in internet hackers. It is important that you take extra security precautions when it comes to your website.

Firstly, you should have a secure login and password system. Passwords should consist of a mixture of letters, numbers and symbols, including capitals and lower cases. Passwords should be of good length, with passwords over 10 characters providing better security.  Change your password frequently and do not give this information out to anyone who is not part of the sites admin team.

Other ways to protect your website is by installing WordPress security plugins, this can help detect hackers and block them from entering into the administration section of your site.

Having a reliable host will help improve the security of your site, and always make sure they have an automatic backup system in place as this will make sure your site content isn’t completely lost if it is hacked.
