Web hosting company advises businesses in securing their custom built websites
Leading independent cloud hosting provider Cyber Host Pro is advising local firms of how to secure their custom built websites.
Director of Cyber Host Pro Chris Danks believes that software, such as WordPress, poses many benefits for businesses who want to create a professional and comprehensive website - without the aid of a web developer.
Although WordPress boasts its relative ease of use and maintenance, as well as withholding a thriving support community, Chris suggests that companies mustn’t be blindsided by its security vulnerabilities.
He said: “As many new businesses are arising in Liverpool an increased amount of websites are created. WordPress, which is optimised through our web hosting, enables users to create their ideal website with originality and ease, via the simply designed dashboard.
“Once people have started customising their websites, many of them are so eager to get the word of their new site out there, that they forget about the security settings that must be implemented. In order to protect against malicious users, we have created a simple guide for our customers to toughen up the WordPress installation that will help diminish any security threats.”
Chris and the team, who are based on Old Hall Street, have provided on-going support to users of WordPress since its launch in 2003, in addition to delivering an array of internet solutions including domain name registration and email set ups.
He added: “As long as the suggested security measures are put in place, WordPress users will be able to reap the benefits of the software. It’s a great platform for businesses that would prefer to cut out the middle man and create a tailor-made website that naturally reflects their company.”
According to recent market research, the open source software is used by 18% of the current top 10 million websites worldwide.
