Web Site Security — A Bloggiesta Chore — 5 Comments

  1. I paid extra for a back-up service when I switched to self-hosting WordPress today, because I know I don’t back up faithfully, and I would hate to lose even a single precious post or comment! I don’t know anything about site security, but that’s going to have to wait till the next Bloggiesta!

  3. That’s exactly the reason I resisted backups. I never seem to set aside the time I’d need if something goes wrong, so I avoid doing it just in case. But clearly that’s a bad plan.

    I didn’t mention this in my PSA, but another reason I did go with Sucuri was because I felt like they were reputable with their testing service. When I plugged my URL into the site after I’d sort of fixed the hack, it came back clean (since I’d gotten at least part of it fixed). It didn’t come back with a problem until my site had clearly been compromised again. I’ve been really happy with their service, and think in the long run it will be well worth the investment.
