Security in WordPress Hosting

On April 17, 2011 · 0 Comments

Once you have an idea for a great blog, have secured WordPress hosting, and started working on your site, how can you be sure that nobody is going to get into your information? Hackers can be a real problem. They can steal your information or, worse yet, hijack your site, putting up their own. After putting hours or days into your site it can be frustrating to find all your work is gone next time you sign in.

There are many ways to make sure your WordPress site is secure. If your hosting offers an automatic backup of data, you can use the backup data to restore your site. You should also always keep your WordPress program updated. Updated versions will have more security measures as programmers learn more about how people are using the program and what weaknesses there are in security. Also always use a password that is hard to guess. Do not use common words such as your pet’s name. Use a combination of capital and lower case letters combined with numbers and symbols if possible.
