Do you make money from your WordPress blog?
Even if you don’t make anything yet from your blog, you could end up losing more than just a blog if someone hacks your WordPress installation.
WordPress has long had a history of security loopholes, and many of the updates are designed to plug those loopholes.
Many bloggers have built up a blog network of sites that are making them commissions only to have them get hacked and either taken down or turned into a profit center for the hacker. Sometimes, the hacking can cause the blogger’s hosting account to be suspended or shut down, because the hacker can also access the cpanel of the hosting account.
This can mean losing multiple sites, lost commissions and lost money because you were paying for a hosting account that is not even operational.
Luckily, we have people who are always working hard to beat the hackers. The result of this is WordPress Shield! Take a look at it and see how much it can help you with your blog security:
