Hi, need help with your WordPress security issues?

It seems like every day the news is reporting new cases of websites being hacked and user data and passwords being stolen. Website security it seems, has become a mainstream news media hot topic coming hand in hand with the obligatory scary headlines and prophecies of doom and gloom. So, if you own or run a self-hosted WordPress website just how do you improve security and keep those scary hackers at bay?

How does a WordPress website get hacked in the first place?

To prevent your website from being hacked you must first identify how and where a hacker gains access to your site in the first place. Identifying where the vulnerabilities are will allow you to focus on the appropriate areas that require attention. Hackers will attempt to compromise a WordPress website and gain access through various targeted methods or known weak spots.

Identifying these areas is the first step to improve WordPress security and prevent your website from being compromised.
