WordPress, like any website platform, is vulnerable for those that have little to no experience with website security.
Because WP makes us such a large share of the market, anyone using this platform is at risk of being attacked, but it doesn’t mean that you will be affected.
Just as your body is constantly ‘fighting’ potential attacks, so are we protecting your website.
The most common ways that WP is vulnerable is through an attacker uploading malware or a virus to your site files.
What we do to protect you and our entire network from being affected by this sort of attack is:
– We constantly monitor all uploads
– We disallow php executing in certain upload folders accessible by attackers
– Each client is strategically isolated so that they can’t infect anyone else, should they become infected
Isolation is crucial for good security.
We isolate each user account, each folder disk space, each database, each FTP account.
We also take these additional steps to protect WordPress:
– We do not allow the username “admin”
– We scrutinize every login attempt
– We monitor every file upload
– We block PHP execution in areas that shouldn’t have them
– We take routing backups of the database and the hosting account.
Should something happen we have hourly backups to get you back to normal in as short a period of time as possible.
