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.
What our customers say:
Jo has been looking after my website for a couple of years now. She has just completed another refresh of the site for me, tidying up a few pages and installed a fantastic new booking system that has made a huge improvement to the functionality of the site. I’m really pleased with the result, and the website looks great. I can highly recommend Jo for all your website needs.
