Upgrade Your Website Security in 3 Steps

This is Mikel with Tiny Frog Technologies I want to talk a little bit about website security

We have a lot of companies that own WordPress websites that have been contacting us lately because they're having issues with their websites having been hacked It's a real common thing that happens nowadays for just about any business and there's a lot of things that can be done to increase the security, on a real basic level, of a WordPress website Probably the most important thing and that we try to convey to our clients is to make sure that the website software is up to date If a website has more complicated plugins and applications that can mean more – it can be a little bit more sophisticated But that's the baseline most important thing to do to keep a website secure is to make sure the software, the plugins, and the core software is up to date

The second thing is to make sure that you are taking regular backups of a website It's really impossible to keep a website 100% secure, so if a website were to get hacked and goes down it's really critical to have a recent backup of your site So if you're managing content and updating your website frequently on a weekly or monthly basis it's really important that your website is backed up add that with that kind of frequency because if your site goes down and you need to upload a new version of your site and it's out of date that will cause you to have to re-do all the content and anything you've done to the site recently The third thing is there's some really good security software out there nowadays that can monitor a site to help keep it safe and secure When we host our clients and maintain our client's websites, we really focus on that integrating security software and that's really important

Most traditional hosts don't have backups and they don't maintain the software and they don't necessarily have security monitoring in place so those are things you usually have to bring in on your own So if you have any questions about website security and hosting and maintenance feel free to contact us and this is Mikel Bruce with Tiny Frog Technologies Thank you
