Wordpress Needs To Be A Top Priority

WordPress Security Needs to be a Top Priority

One common issue I see with my clients and when I’m setting up my Geek In Your Pocket clients is the lack of security on their websites.

Much of this is because you don’t know what you don’t know and as easy as WordPress can be to use, it’s just as easy to fall into the idea that installing a plugin will keep everything secure.

The team at WP Fixit shares this about WordPress….

WordPress is a secure content management system with strong defenses, but it needs help. And to help, you need to be aware of the risks faced by your WordPress site. Once you understand the risks, it is easier to understand the part you play in keeping your site, its users, and its data out of the hands of criminals.

Help! Why is my WordPress site soooooo slow?

It’s a question I get asked a lot, at networking meetings, on facebook, twitter and anywhere else I happen to be connecting with folks. So here’s a few common issues that cause your site to be running slow….
If you are on shared hosting, which most micro business are and it’s often plenty for what you need, you’re sharing your hosting with other websites. This is how it makes the service so incredibly affordable (Bluehost & Hostgator* are two popular services). For most business owners keeping their site on shared hosting is plenty, but as you grow and drive more traffic to your site, maybe have a self hosted community like BuddyPress or possibly a membership site this can drain the resources for both you and the other businesses that you are sharing your hosting with and it might be time to think of upgrading – if you think this might be the issue connect with us and we can help you through the process.
