What is the Difference Between a Normal WordPress Blog and a Secure WordPress Blog?

Secure WordPress® is our fully managed solution for your WordPress security needs. This includes all preventative measures to limit your online risk and attacks that could bring your website down.

The features included in the package create a secure environment for you to house your content and give you peace of mind knowing that your website and customers are safe.

Secure WordPress offers a WordPress blog plus the following extra benefits:

  • Data Center Class Firewall
  • Malware Protection
  • Database Backups
  • Dedicated Expert Support

We run a security scan of all themes and plugins before installing them behind our WordPress firewall. They are managed by us and secured prior to giving you access. By doing this, you don’t have to worry about hackers harming your website.

Most of our competitors still have plugins and themes open and require you to keep them protected from potential hackers. We remove that worry by providing a more secure option.
