While the ease of use and open source library of plugins and themes are some of the most popular features of building a WordPress website, it’s imperative that the website owner is following basic WordPress security best practices to protect your website against hackers and malware. Just like any software, if it’s not properly maintained, it can break.
Similar to how it’s the business owners responsibility to protect their physical store building, as an online business owner it is your responsibility to protect your business website.
A hacked WordPress site can cause serious damage to your business revenue and reputation. User information and passwords can be stolen or malware could be sent to your users.
Here’s a few basic maintenance items WordPress users should ensure are in place on their sites:
WordPress updates are crucial for the security and stability of your website. You need to make sure that your WordPress core, plugins, and theme are up to date.
The most common WordPress hacking attempts use stolen passwords. You can make that difficult by using stronger passwords that are unique for your website. Not just for WordPress admin area, but also for FTP accounts, database, WordPress hosting account, and your custom email addresses which use your site’s domain name.
