Security

Login Monitoring

One sure way to know if your site has been hacked or if someone has cracked your login credentials is by monitoring user login activity. Each time you login you can see a notification stating the last time your website was logged into and from what IP address.

FTP Security

FTP is software web designers and Host companies use to upload your website files to the World Wide Web. By having weak FTP security in place and incorrect file write permissions set, your website is vulnerable to hackers.

Spam

If you are using the comments feature on your WordPress blog, we can make sure spam comments end up where they belong, IN THE TRASH!

Security Audit

Website Care can do a Security Audit on your website to see where your site is vulnerable. Based on the outcome of this report, we can advise you on the best package for your needs.

Brute Force Attacks

Automated attempts to log into your WordPress website and cause damage or steal data is a huge problem these day. Hackers send out scripts which look for login pages on website and use a tactic called “Brute Force Attack” which will try to crack your username and password. These scripts can try hundreds of combinations a minute. We can install a feature which will limits the number of incorrect login attempts that are allowed on your WordPress website. If the number is exceeded, the attackers IP address is blocked preventing them access to your admin area.
