What is the 2nd most important plugin for your WordPress website?
Well, here’s a clue, it has to do with security. But first, let’s answer the question, “Why would anyone hack my small business website”?
Answer # 1, because they can.
Answer #2 because they can profit from it. Even if you do not store credit card info or other personal info on your website (and you shouldn’t), hackers will hack your site to break in and steal your server resources. They will also try to break in because people pay them to set up outbound link schemes from your site (this has to do with Black Hat SEO). Also because they can send millions of spam email from your site. Also because they can use your site’s IP address to commit further crimes against larger targets and the tell tale evidence could point back to your site.
So what is the plugin? Well, you’ll have to watch the video for that but I will tell you that it is a way to prevent brute force attacks on your website. What are those? Watch the video! How do you lock people out based on their IP address? Watch the video! How do you check your site for malware? Watch the video! All these questions and more will be answered!
