How secure is your site?

Don't risk losing everything in a hack or outage.

Is this you?

  • You own a WordPress site.
  • Your site may or may not be currently updated.
  • You don’t know how to secure your site.
  • FTP, htaccess and lockdown leave you confused.
  • You may or may not be still using the admin username to login.
  • You have no idea what hardening WordPress means.

I know that website security can be boring or even scary, but hiding your head in the sand isn’t going to make anything better. I’m here to provide expert service in securing and protecting your site so that you don’t have to worry about it anymore!

What can happen with an unsecured site?

  • Your data could be lost. While I try my best to recover all data after a hack, there are times when you just can’t repair what was lost.
  • Your hosting account can be hijacked. Hackers can turn your entire site into spam mini-sites, hijacking your domain and slowing down your own site.
  • Hackers could steal your data. Injected code can allow hackers to mine your clients’ information from your webforms or database.
  • Your private course materials could become public. You could end up finding all your private course materials — PDFs, MP3s, videos — floating around on hacker sites or on Google.
  • Your clients’ information could be leaked. Sure you put up a notice saying that you won’t sell e-mail addresses to a 3rd party — but the hacker who is intercepting all of your submissions will be happy to sell off e-mail addresses.
  • Your site could be blacklisted. Once a site is blacklisted, it is hard to get off. Your site will be blocked by virus software, search engines, and more.

Just how bad can it get when your site isn’t properly secured? I asked a client of mine to share her own experience with being hacked after she had to have her whole hosting account (multiple sites!) cleaned and repaired:

As a super-­small business owner, I got stuck in a scary website situation last month. The company who hosted my websites did a lousy job of keeping their servers safe. I had no idea what that meant for a long time, but the result is this:

I got a whole bunch of emails from the company telling me that “During a recent security scan we have identified that one or more of your hosted sites show signs of being compromised as they are hosting known, malicious web-­based backdoors.”

Since I had no idea what that meant, and my website was still working, I ignored them for awhile. Eventually I figured it must be a real issue (since I kept getting emails), so I purchased the malware scanner they suggested. But when I ran the program, it told me my sites were fine. So I went about my day. (Yes, I know this was dumb.)

Then the crap hit the fan. My emails weren’t getting through to the intended recipient. I kept getting weird “link removal requests” from wacky websites and the “security alerts” were coming hard and fast.

I checked in with my web designer who sent me to Nikole. Just. In. Time. Turns out I was in serious danger of being blacklisted (aka­ google thought I was an icky spammer). Nikole cleaned it up. She moved me to a different host, cleaned it all up, and my sites probably won’t explode now.

More importantly, Nikole handled it quickly, affordably, and helped me to understand the process. Now that I know the value of managed hosting (and how bad, bad, bad the situation could’ve gotten) I’ll never go back to trying to handle it on my own. She really is That Super Girl.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the questions I get asked the most about this service:

What information do I need to provide to get this done?

I will send you an e-mail outlining what I need after purchase, but in general you will need to gather your logins — such as FTP, cpanel/hosting, and WordPress.

Will this work on any website?

You need a self-hosted WordPress install on your own hosting account to use this service. If your hosting provider blocks backups or doesn’t meet the needs of a secure site, I will notify you and advise a course of action.

How long does the audit take to complete?

Most security audits are completed within 3 business days.

What happens if you find a major problem?

I will let you know if any major issues exist on your site, as well as give you options on what you can do to fix them.

What if I have more than one site?

I have a discount for multiple sites. See the form for two (Save $50), three (Save $150), four (Save $225), or five (Save $300) sites.

What if I already know I am hacked?

I would skip the audit, and contact me for an emergency de-hack service so I can clean and audit at the same time.
