Having a website is an essential part of our digital lives these days. Whether you are conducting business online, promoting a charity or event, or even just having your own personal space on the internet to talk about your life or hobbies, a website gives you a voice and a presence online. And with WordPress it’s never been easier to build a good looking, fully functional site.
But the internet also has its dangers, with hackers looking to break into and take over your site. All the time, money and energy you have put in can be lost, or worse, you can end up having to spend even more time, money and energy in cleaning up a hacked site.
