If you’re considering using WordPress to power your website, you’ve probably heard that security is of great importance. However, a large percentage of websites get hacked every week. While WordPress is relatively secure thanks to regular updates and patches, you still need to be vigilant to protect your website. Be sure to check for updates, change your passwords frequently, and use strong passwords. Limit editing access to only those who need to do so. You can also purchase an SSL certificate for your website, which encrypts connections to your site and protects data transfers.
