Protecting your site
Security is built-in, not an afterthought
When we build your website, we take into consideration every facet of the platform, so it’s extendable, robust, and focused on performance. Security and maintenance are at its base, not an afterthought.
Security begins with a hardening process when we build your site, we lock down file permissions and access rights, addressing the ways hackers get into a site. Running Open Source platforms like WordPress require maintenance and vigilance, and we make improvements continually.
Multiple levels of protection, alert mechanisms, industry best practices and continual maintenance keep your site up and running.
After your site goes live, we run a suite of security plugins that protect you from brute-force attacks, malware, and malicious code. Site backup and recovery is another subject we discuss, and if things go south, we’re here to enable paid versions of software to recover hacked sites.
