IS THIS THE PHASE TO SHIFT WORDPRESS SECURITY IDEAS ?

Home / Client communication / IS THIS THE PHASE TO SHIFT WORDPRESS SECURITY IDEAS ?

Quite frankly, the WordPress security dilemma is not shrinking. WordPress has the huge user base and popularity, in the same hand hacking also. So it is not a matter to ponder the programmer’s screen on these WordPress stages. Yet that doesn’t mean WordPress is powerless totally. So we WordPress developers should bring awareness to the things everyday website owners can do to improve their over security measures.

We ought to be mindful that security is impossible; but it’s something which should not be disregarded or missed. So it is the time to make a shift from our usual WordPress security measures. So sooner we start, better the result will be.

WHAT WE GENERALLY DO:

Let’s point out our usual security measures at a glance:

1.Stronger passwords
2.Files like wp-config.php
3.Delete the username “admin”
4.Hide wp-config.php and .htaccess
5.Change table prefix
6.Disable file editing

BUT, IS WORDPRESS SECURE STILL?

Obviously the response will be negative. Still WordPress is facing security issues. In fact, WordPress websites were attacked 25%  more than sites running on all other CMS platforms combined. I am not here to frighten you, however truly my point is to make every one of you to think about the truth that WordPress ubiquity and its hacking goes as an inseparable unit.

IS THIS THE PHASE TO SHIFT OUR IDEAS ON WORDPRESS SECURITY?

Evidently, this is the time to make new trends on WordPress security. In my opinion WordPress community needs a seasoned solution that will help create or enhance the attention of WordPress as a secured platform? Why make it easy for hackers to access your website, when it is so easy to harden your WordPress security? Our ideas on WordPress security should shift from strong passwords to more set up plugins and hosting side.

A) HOSTING TO WP ENGINE:

WP Engine specializes in hosting WordPress websites:

1.Security:
Their hosting package includes the services of the best-in-business Succuri.net .

2.Performance:
WP Engine takes WordPress performance seriously and has created a custom optimized architecture for their servers.

 3.Convenience:
You can experiment with updates, theme changes, new plugins, etc. without affecting the public-facing production site.

 B) PLUGINS TO HARDEN SECURITY:

a) Sucuri Security- (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) :

1.It is perfect to keep your site secure and free from virus, malware etc.
2.Website Integrity Monitoring can also be done with the aforesaid plugin.
3.File monitoring.
4.Server Side Scanning.
5.Virus and malware scanning.
6.Blacklist monitoring.
7.Security notification.
8.Security firewall.
9.Post-Hack Actions.
10.WordPress Security Notifications.

b) Benefits of i Themes Security:

1. 2 factor authentication logging features.
2.Real time user logging, monitoring option.
3.Easy to set-up.
4.Generate complex and strong password.
5.Work as firewall.
6.Change default admin URLs.

c) Bullet Proof Security:

1. .htaccess protection to keep the site safe from hacking attempts.
2.Database backup features.
3.Keep your site safe from virus and malware.
4.Monitoring and safe logging features.
5.Easy to install and configure.
6.File monitoring features in the pro version.
7.Firewall and anti-spam protection.

Conclusion:

This is the time to chase WordPress harden security plugins rather than going for usual basic steps. While the fame of  WordPress can make it a focus for those with detestable plans, this is limitlessly exceeded by the quantity of specialists, devices, and administrations that are close by, to guarantee the security-danger to your WordPress site is minimized.

We are looking forward to get your views on our posts which will be a great encouragement for us.

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about
    switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
