One of the most critical elements of having a website is keeping it secure.
The latest stats suggest that Over 90,000 websites are hacked every day.
Hackers don’t care whose site they leverage, so never assume they won't target yours. Unsecured websites can be taken down, used to send thousands of emails, bandwidth used to mine for digital currencies, injected with malicious code, viruses and more.
At worst you’ll find your site is unrecoverable and unless you or your designer / host have a full and recent backup you could be saying goodbye to your website for hours, days or forever. At best you'll still lose a load of your time or your web developers time finding the malicious code, or reinstalling from backups.
The first step is to move your site to secure hosting. This is now becoming the norm anyway, so is included in all our hosting packages. Once that is done, our job is clear. To keep your website build secure, up-to-date, online, hacker and virus free.
18.5 Million websites infected with malware right now!
The numbers are astonishing! And no-one is free from attack with most sites being targetted multiple times a day by bots and hackers.
Did you know that WordPress has a 60% market share in the Content Management System world and powers over 30% of the worlds sites (somewhere around 22 million). With stats like that, it is no surprise that it is also the most hacked.
Our packs provide a pro-active approach to your sites hosting and security. Fixing once the site is broken always takes a lot longer than keeping the site live by finding and fixing threats before they proliferate. This is how and why we can run the service so cost-effectively.
The plugins and content management systems that sit behind your website all require continual monitoring and updating to keep your site functioning and secure. Hitting the update plugin button or update CMS link is very simple. Doing it without wrecking your site is where you need to exercise caution. That is where we come in.
Backup, apply the update, check it works, back up again, update next plugin, check it works and so on! This level of maintenance keeps the site looking great, functioning as per its design and running fast. As well as updating your core plugins and extensions we also install class leading security plugins to enhance security and help block attackers.
Nothing is bulletproof of course, our security maintenance offers a high level of safety but hackers move fast and in the event of a breach you can be assured we are ready to get you back up online in no time with one of our regular backups of your whole site.
