WordPress Support Services

Every Business Owner with a WordPress Website Needs Support Services!

Technology has come quite far since the internet’s early inception, and as much as we’d like to think so, we’re still not at a place where your company can be certain your website is 100 percent secure. Most people don’t even know when their website has been hacked, leaving them vulnerable to having personal information stolen, their website replaced with a new page or taken down all-together and website visitors get a virus.

  • A large percentage of people build their website through WordPress, a CMS (Content Management Systems) because it’s easy to update and maintain. Plugins, which are pieces of code built by third-party developers to add new features or functionality to WordPress, are a big part of what makes them so popular.
  • At the moment, there are more than 55,000 different WordPress plugins available for download. As great as plugins are, they also represent more than 55 percent of the known entry points for security breaches, bugs and viruses.
  • Even the 2016 election hack have been attributed to a WordPress plugin – no one is exempt. A year before the election, a vendor of WordPress announced there was a serious vulnerability in the plugin used. The site was not aware of the vulnerability and the hack was able to happen.

Just recently, a large number of websites run on WordPress have been hacked in order to send crypto ransomware and other malicious viruses to website visitors.

Researchers shows that hacks commonly happen to those using out-of-date versions of popular plugins, WordPress itself and web-based forms.

Webmaster For Hire’s WordPress Support Services Keeps You Current!

At Webmaster For Hire, we stay up to date on the list of plugin vulnerability warnings. In order to prevent getting bugs and hacks, our WordPress Support Services keeps your company’s website and plugins backed up daily, and updated monthly. We don’t catch them all, as many of our site owners install their own plugins but we do try to catch any that we are aware of and either update or recommend a change to the site owner. Having a programmer complete the updates and having daily backups means that the issues can be fixed as quickly as it happens.

  • For $100/month, we run backups of your single website (or $198/month for eCommerce or Multi-Sites up to 5 domains), install security and monitoring plugins and monthly perform updates of plugins and themes we have access to the updates and WordPress system itself. An nominal investment could save your company thousands of dollars when compared with losing secure client information and having to clean up a hacked website. This doesn’t take into account the lost trust between clients and followers.
  • On average, cleaning up and restoring a site that has no back-ups costs more than $3,000. Our WordPress Support Services include a 24-hour repair and restore upon notification of malware or hacked website either from you or our monitoring notices.

Unfortunately, business owners tend to assume that hacking happens to other people and so we put off the maintenance that we should be doing. But when it comes to your business, your website, your clients – it’s all too important NOT to put off regular maintenance.

Microsoft and Target have been hacked so why are we so confident that our companies won’t be? It isn’t a case of “if” but “when.” We see, with one of our WordPress plugins installed, over hundreds of failed attempted logins of the ‘admin’ username on many of our clients’ websites.

Someone who’s trying to hack a website will gain access by:

  • Guessing your password
  • Using malware to learn login credentials
  • Hacking another site on the same server
  • Finding an area of vulnerability in any open-to-web access software your company is using.

In the blink of an eye, your website could be compromised. Don’t let it happen. Let us focus on keeping you updated and handle the issue if it does happen to your company’s WordPress website. Like a virus in your body, viruses and hacking can be prevented much of the time.
