Perhaps your host has had to suspend your account, or Google is warning that your site is running malicious code. Maybe it’s as simple as rogue posts starting to show up on your blog. Either way, you need to act fast before your search rankings plummet and your customers start to complain.
If you’ve got a backup of your site, the process is made a lot easier because you can usually carry out a restoration and then perform some hardening tasks to help stop it happening again. If there’s no backup we’ll need to run a full scan of your site, remove the vulnerability and then look at prevention.
We charge a flat fee of £60 to recover a hacked WordPress website.
Some recommendations to keep your WordPress website safe:
Run all WordPress core and plugin updates. Check regularly to make sure you’re always running the latest versions.
Never use the default ‘admin’ username, change it to something less obvious.
Use a complicated password that is hard for a hacker to guess, and change it routinely.
Run regular virus scans on any computers you use to access your WordPress website.
Take regular backups of your website.
As a freelance musician and teacher my website is very important for generating business and maintaining good contact with my clients. I have found Jo Cox Design very useful to help maintain elements of my site which are more complex. I like to have control of my site but I often find there are things I cannot achieve on my own. I would certainly recommend Jo as a friendly person who’s easy to work with and who can help you achieve such goals.
