New Green Hosting customers can add the option of letting us handle some essential security measures on their WordPress website as part of their hosting account set-up. If you would like us to do this, just choose to add the WordPress security steps when you sign-up.
We will install WordPress for you at your hosting account and:
- Create a non 'admin' username
- Limit log-in attempts
- Rename the log-in URL
- Re-route the standard log-in URL to a 403 forbidden page
- Install 'Plugin Vulnerabilities'
- Install WordFence
Website owners can of course do this themselves and we strongly suggest that anyone with a self-hosted WordPress website regularly updates their installation and plug-ins as well as takes care of other security issues.
For our existing Green Hosting customers, if you would like help with this please contact us.
