Hosting, Maintenance & Support for your WordPress Site
Back in 2013, it was becoming increasingly obvious that I needed to offer more to my clients than design and website services. Once a site was complete, I was letting my clients go on their merry way and not offering further support to ensure their site (and therefore their investment) was completely safe from the increasing attacks that were happening at that time.
So, Lemonberry started offering managed hosting to their clients which gives peace of mind to know that your site is being looked after – by the team that build it!
To this day, WordPress is still under constant attack from all around the world by unscrupulous people trying to inject undesirable code into your site for their own (usually malicious) purposes.
- serving up malware (viruses, trojans, spam attacks)
- bot attacks (where your site can be a ‘drone’ in illegal DDoS (distributed denial of service attacks)
- gain access to the administration and take over access of your website and your customers personal data
- turned into a phishing site (eg. a fake mirror of a bank website)
To protect against these potential attacks, its your responsibility to keep your site up to date requiring you to spend time checking, updating and sometimes repairing your installation.
We recently helped a customer who reported sporadic down-time on their WordPress website, as well as other problems. During the course of migrating it to the Lemonberry Cloud, we discovered obscufied code which was being used to turn the site into a “bot” and found code trying to gain the administrators credentials. We advised our client to immediately change all personal passwords (including bank logins, gmail, facebook etc) and set about cleaning up the mess left by the hack. We are pleased to report that the site now shows no known vulnerabilities and no more down time!
