Frequently asked WordPress
website security questions

As well as securing WordPress websites, it is our duty to educate all of our customers on how to maintain perfect website security internally. Here are some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to website security.

Are WordPress websites secure?

Generally speaking, WordPress websites come with basic protection. However, as an open-source content management system and the most used CMS on the internet, it stands to reason that malicious users would target this platform.

Relying upon out of the box WordPress security as a startup, for a short time, is sufficient. However, it is often wise to invest in WordPress security plugins alongside comprehensive WordPress security services for total peace of mind. After all, can your growing business really afford to be out of action – even for a single day?

Can hosting servers be hacked?

Absolutely. In particular, shared hosting servers are one of the most common reasons why websites become compromised. By hosting your website on cheap hosting servers, you are putting your business at risk from attack.

The reason for this is because you are sharing resources with other websites and there is very little maintenance for cheap hosting environments. Should another website within your neighbourhood become compromised, this could also affect your business too.

Are WordPress plugins safe?

In short, all WordPress plugins come with security risks. Each plugin has been developed by a third-party entity that you have minimal contact with and are solely reliant upon to keep on top of their own software. As such, the more plugins you add to your website, the greater you are at risk of being breached. Not to mention that too many plugins will result in WordPress speed optimisation services being required.

Now, before you completely run away from WordPress, the majority of WordPress plugins are safe to use and we recommend that you stick to well-supported, well-reviewed and common plugins. Do not download plugins that are not very common as they are likely not funded or supported by the original developer. This can also lead to issues with plugin conflicts which will cause your website to break.

How can I secure my WordPress website?

Depending on how familiar you are with WordPress, you can follow WordPress security guides on the internet that will walk you through how to implement frontline measures. In addition to this, by avoiding super cheap website hosting services, you will also find that your hosting provider will assist you with WordPress security too.

Besides technical implementations and WordPress hardening services, there are plenty of other basic things that you can also do to protect your website. For starters, make sure you have strong passwords. As patronising as that sounds, we still see this all of the time!

Secondly, be careful with the plugins you install and also ensure that you limit the number of users on your website. If your administrator has viruses on their personal computer, this can also compromise your website the moment they access WordPress.

Finally, another easy way to help secure your WordPress website is to keep on top of updates. Yes, this might cost you a little bit of money but the security that comes with upgrading is unparalleled. Hackers are always finding new ways to compromise websites and staying on top of your WordPress versions is a vital step to hardening your security.
