The Managed WordPress Hosting service from Trent Studios, LLC, allows the business owner to focus on their business while Trent Studios keeps their website safe and secure. They can rest easier knowing that their WordPress website on Trent Studios' dedicated server environment is secure, kept backed-up, and up-to-date with the latest software.
WordPress is a content management system and blogging platform. Think of WordPress as website-building software. It's free and gets installed into the website. It's not something that's installed on a personal computer. The appearance of a WordPress website can be changed with what's called a 'theme'. The functionality of a WordPress website can be changed by installing plug-ins, such as a contact form plug-in, or a shopping cart plug-in.
Think of hosting as the place a website lives. It's like the lot a house sits on.
The developers of WordPress, the theme, and any plug-ins installed, release updates from time to time that include new features or security patches. Those security patches are why it's a good idea to keep a WordPress website kept up-to-date. But before the website is updated, it needs to be backed-up, in case something goes wrong.
There's more to a secure WordPress site than just keeping software up-to-date. As part of Trent Studios' Managed WordPress Hosting service, they also make changes to how WordPress gets installed and who, or what, can have access to it. For example, the first thing hackers do to gain access to a website is try to figure out where the log-in page is, and what the username and password is. The default log-in URL is somewebsite.com/wp-admin/. The folks at Trent Studios, LLC, simply change this to something different. They also use strong passwords. A few of the many things they do to secure a WordPress website are highlighted on their website at http://trentstudios.com/managed-wordpress-hosting/
If there's been a breach to the website, they try to find out how the hacker got in and fix it, find and quarantine the injection, and evaluate what can be done to prevent that from happening again.
The reason security is so important is because hackers all around the world are looking for vulnerable websites they can hack into. If a WordPress website has a plug-in that has a known security vulnerability, hackers will find it eventually, and when they do, they may use it to send spam or replace the home page with a Viagra ad.
Just about everybody offers WordPress hosting. But not everybody offers Managed WordPress Hosting or goes to the length Trent Studios, LLC does to keep a WordPress safe and secure. Security is their primary concern.
