Unfortunately, the vast majority of web sites that begin with HTTP (hypertext transfer protocol) are fundamentally insecure, vulnerable to third party attack. On the other hand, a secured site, indicated by an HTTPS, as opposed to HTTP, contains an impenetrable “key” (code) that is your best all-around protection against being hacked, and we highly recommended it. We follow the correct administrative procedures to make sure all aspects of security are addressed when obtaining your HTTPS designation so that you’re getting every protection offered by HTTPS. There is another reason why https is recommended: SEO. Search engines, e.g., Google, prefer it, and will give preference to your site’s placement on search results.To the right, we’ve embedded a google presentation, entitled, “HTTPS Everywhere.” A bit geeky, true, but worth watching. You’ll understand why HTTPS is important for all sites, including yours.
How much does HTTPS cost?
A secure certificate for your primary domain costs $35/year.
Please note: Sub-domains, e.g., https:/shop.mydomain.com, can be very useful additions to a site, and can enhance SEO. However, if you wish to set up one or more sub-domains for your primary domain, each sub-domain will require a separate certificate. But if you feel that sub-domains may not be necessary, you can avoid the complications (and the costs) by letting us simply set up another folder within your site, e.g., https://mydomain.com/shop, which won’t require a separate certificate.
A malware attack can happen in microseconds, and in a blink of an eye, your site is toast. Wordfence Premium’s Enhanced Real-Time Defense Feed, and other great features, below, keeps your firewall up-to-date, and is constantly updating malicious IP addresses worldwide. In addition to the standard Wordfence features, Wordfence Premium offers:
Enhanced Real-Time Threat Defense Feed
Protection from the latest threats, delivered as they emerge. Wordfence is constantly adding updates as they discover new threats. Premium members receive the real-time version of the Threat Defense Feed. Free users receive the community version, which is delayed by 30 days.
Put geographic protection in place. Blocking countries that are clearly engaging in malicious activity is an effective way to protect your site during an attack.
Check if Site IP is Generating Spam
Feeling ignored? Your emails might be trapped. Your legitimate customer emails can be caught in spam filters if another site on your shared IP address is generating a lot of spam. We will use this feature to confirm that your site is running on a clean IP address, and that the shared IP you are using to host your website is not listed as a known source of spam email.
Check if Site is Spamvertized
More than a pain, spam is destructive. When your website URL is being used for spamvertising, it can severely impact your SEO rankings and email deliverability. Wordfence checks if your website URL has been flagged for spamvertising, indicating that your site may have been compromised or that you are emailing too aggressively.
And much more…
Wordfence Premium offers comment spam filtering for your blog, frequent and scheduled scans, password auditing, and for us, great support for your site.
