Peace-of-mind security upgrades for your website

A website designed and built by Flux offers very high baseline protection, but upgrading your backup and security services can further reduce the chances of your website being hacked. Our standard and premium packages can also reduce the cost of repair if your website experiences a rare hacking event.

Due to it being widely adopted and user-friendly, WordPress is Flux’s content management system (CMS) of choice. Most of our clients are already familiar with the WordPress Dashboard, and using the most popular CMS on the planet makes it easy to find another developer to help (should you need to in the future).

Similarly, due to its popularity, WordPress is a common target of website hackers and spam bots. We believe the pros of using WordPress far outweigh the cons—and maintained well, your WordPress website will continue to assist your organisation with communication for many years to come.

Below is a brief outline of the different facets of website security and our available maintenance packages:

Website Maintenance

WordPress is the biggest, most flexible and most widely used website content management system (CMS) on the planet. While there is an endless list of benefits to using WordPress, its popularity also means it is often the target of website hackers.

All our newly developed websites include some excellent security features. Now we want to give all our customers the opportunity to upgrade their backup and security services.

Backups

Backups are essential for restoring your website quickly should it become compromised by a hacking event or software malfunction of any kind. We can easily restore a previously backed up version of the website which immediately removes the infected file(s) and restores the website to its previous health.

Our default hosting package includes daily backups for the last 30 days, stored on the hosting server.

Upgrades are designed to store more backups on a third party server for extra peace of mind. This includes unlimited weekly and monthly backups saved to our Google Drive account for the active duration of your website.

Updates

WordPress is a modular platform which consists of:

  • Core software files
  • Plugin software files
  • Themes files

All of which are written using a variety of different coding languages.

The code in these files is constantly updated by its authors to improve security, speed and functionality.

When we update your site, we check to see if there are newer versions of this software. If so, we determine whether an upgrade to this new software is beneficial or not for our customers. If we determine that it is, we run an additional backup process (unless a very recent backup is already on file) and then update the software to the newer version.

We recommend updates are conducted regularly—at least once per year—in order to keep all software up-to-date.

Security

All of the above can be considered different elements of keeping your website secure, but the final ingredient is to use a firewall plugin to block access attempts and scan for security breaches.

An additional firewall identifies and blocks most malicious traffic, while a security scanner checks core files, themes and plugins for malware, bad URLs, backdoors, SEO spam, malicious redirects and code injections.

Keeping this security plugin up-to-date regularly ensures you have the highest level of protection available against the latest hacking technologies.

Site cleaning service

When your site has been compromised by attackers, it is incredibly important to restore it to working order as quickly as possible. Normally, a restore backup will be quick, easy and free. However, if backup restore is not enough to clear an infected website, we may need to hire seasoned security analysts to manually repair infected website files.

Site security audit service

59-point inspection that covers all aspects of running a secure WordPress site. The final report includes detailed recommendations for improving your site security. We back that up with a 90-day guarantee, cleaning your site free of charge should your site get hacked.
