Why Do I Need Your
WordPress Security Service?

Did you know that 42.60% of websites on the internet are made with WordPress? This also makes it the most hacked CMS system due to its popularity!

You might be thinking why should I enhance my WordPress security, I have a small personal website that attackers won’t have any interest in. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, hackers run website crawlers and botnets to find websites that can be easily hacked through vulnerabilities then inject malware even if your website is small. 

Our service is to make sure this minimises the risk of this happening by fixing already known WordPress issues and hardening your security, setting the correct file permissions. Each plugin you install increases the risk of your website being hacked as the plugin itself can have vulnerabilities which is why it is important to do this process sooner rather than later!

Adding 2FA

Adding two-factor authentication reduces the risk of your administrative account been taken over by a hacker. Even if they get the password correct they will require an automatically generated code via your phone or email.

Changing Database Prefix

By default, your WordPress database prefix is usually wp_prefix. We will change this prefix making it harder for the attacker to guess your prefix.

Changing File Permissions

File permissions define who can read, write, and execute the file in question. Sometimes these files can have incorrect permissions which allow unauthorised users to access and edit them which could leave your site with malware.

Brute Force Protection

When an attacker is trying to gain access to your login credentials they will usually try the most common usernames first such as admin or administrator. We will automatically block the attackers IP permanently.

If the attacker knows your username already we will have implemented a system so they get blocked after 3-5 login attempts.

Number 5 white icon - conor bradley - sheffield digital agency

Changing Admin URL

By default, everyone's WordPress admin is the following: http://www.example.com/wp-login.php. We will change this URL so only you will know the URL.
