1. SSL Installation: The Shield Your Site Deserves
Let’s begin our adventure in website security with the magical realm of SSL Installation. In this world, data travels across the vast universe of the internet, and without a shield, this data is like a knight in shining armor... with no armor. SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypts data, making it a must-have for any WordPress site, especially e-commerce and business websites. By encrypting data transfers, SSL thwarts nefarious web marauders from stealing sensitive information. So, start your security quest by installing an SSL certificate and watch your site transform into an impregnable fortress! Sometimes, your agency can supply a free SSL certificate and at others it might cost you up to US$120 per annum.
2. WordFence: Your Loyal Sentry
Marching on to WordFence, a gallant guard for your WordPress bastion. With constant surveillance, WordFence scans your kingdom for malware, malicious traffic, and potential vulnerabilities. Now, you stand at a crossroads – the Free Path or the Premium Trail? The free version is a sturdy shield, fighting off many a foe. But the premium path? Ah, it's like arming your guards with flaming swords and indestructible shields. For e-commerce empires, where the treasure trove is brimming, the premium path is the wise warrior's choice. Business websites, too, will find the advanced protection worth every golden coin.
