WordPress under attack – multiple vectors – multiple bot-nets…
Your website is slow – why?
Are you running WordPress? Many sites are – in-fact MILLIONS of sites are running WordPress as their content management system or CMS. The beauty and the weakness of open-Source CMS is that anyone can grab the code, change it – build a site and make their dream website with it.
The open-code makes it VERY popular – it’s so popular that hackers have been targeting WordPress as an “easy target”. The problem isn’t the base code – because when a flaw is found, the community patches it – and usually quickly – but the problem is *DO* you patch it?
Many customers use WordPress and they say they’ll install it properly – they’ll employ basic security and they’ll keep it up-to-date – and then LIFE HAPPENS.
That’s why we offer – MANAGED WordPress – for as little as $25/month – we’ll backup the site regularly – we’ll check it EVERY DAY for updates – and if there are any – we’ll deploy them (after running another backup). If your site is attacked – at BEST the server you’re on gets slow – today alone with ONE website being probed from a weak installation done by a customer, the server saw more than 15,000 probes from a botnet of more than 2800 different infected computers. But wait – there’s more… if your site is actually attacked and compromised – what can happen? Google can block you – website visitors can have their computers attacked and possibly infected with viruses – Trojan-horses and other malware. Who are your site visitors? Your customers and your prospective customers… even if they don’t get attacked, their antivirus can flag your site as a site they shouldn’t visit… and that means your customers are told “don’t visit here” – the next logical message “don’t do business with this company” – this is a horrendous message to send.
Our managed WordPress hosting will mitigate your risk – don’t get caught in a bot-net snare…
