Is your site ready for the new year?

Optimize your site to maximize your sales (and minimize your stress).

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.
  • You don’t know what “using the admin username” means.
  • You have no idea what hardening WordPress involves.

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. Databases, themes and uploads folders can all be damaged or lost in a hack.
  • Your hosting account can be hijacked. Hackers can turn your hosting account into spam mini-sites.
  • 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 put the effort into those materials and you don’t want them given away for free!
  • Your clients’ information could be leaked. Hackers can intercept all of your form submissions and 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.

Service Options & Your Bonus

Option #1: Get the Green Lock with SSL

Why does every site need SSL (encrypted / https)?

  • WordPress recommends it. Moving forward, certain features and functions will only be available to WordPress sites using SSL.
  • Google gives more ranking weight to encrypted sites and gives warnings to Chrome users about non-SSL sites.
  • SSL helps protect your users’ data and keeps your company safer.
  • SSL gives your customers confidence in submitting their information or purchasing from you.

The problem is that many site owners either don’t have a SSL certificate, don’t know how to activate one if they have it, or don’t know how to fully integrate it into their site. This can lead to a false sense of security or certificates that are not being properly used. Your SSL service will include obtaining the correct certificate, installing it, and then making sure your site is fully utilizing secure protocols on every page. If you are not using https for your site in 2018, I highly recommend you get on it!

* Most good hosting companies will give you a free SSL certificate. If your host does not, you may have to purchase one (at additional cost) for the site.

Option #2: Help for a Severely Outdated Site

Does your WordPress update number have a high number on it? Are you afraid to click on the update button?
Is your sever not using the latest recommendations for running WordPress (or do you not even know)?

Take the worry out of WordPress by getting all your server and WordPress software updated for you to the latest specifications. This service includes a tiered backup and update method to prevent losses during updating, and rollback/troubleshooting for updates that are not working out.

FREE BONUS: The Site Speed Analysis & Performance Booster

As I know you’re trying to ramp up your business to take off in 2018, you’ll also receive a bonus Site Speed Analysis & Performance Booster when you purchase either add-on option to your service. I don’t want you to lose out on any potential sales!

For the Site Speed Analysis & Performance Booster, I will:

  • Analyze your site loading pattern and download speed
  • Run tests on your server performance
  • Identify places where your site could use optimization
  • Install and configure a caching solution to help boost your performance
  • Provide you with a site speed report

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 service take to complete?

After purchase, you will be able to schedule your service with a 2-hour time frame window. It will be completed within that time.

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?

The current sale price is already such a huge discount that multi-site discounts are not currently available.

What if I already know I am hacked?

I would skip the audit then, and go straight to contacting me for an emergency de-hack service so I can clean and audit at the same time.
