Having a professional WordPress website created

WordPress: the security of customization

WordPress does not always have a secure image. This is often due to ignorance, poor installation, working with templates and barely updating the website. However, with a custom WordPress website built by a professional Internet agency, there is little you can do. We can guarantee WordPress security.

Send an open invitation

WordPress is by far the most popular CMS in the world. Of course, the logical consequence of this knowledge is that it is also an interesting target for hackers and spammers. Being careless with WordPress is therefore equivalent to sending an open invitation to hackers to drop by. Unfortunately, the casual attitude of a lot of users has given WordPress a bad name when it comes to security. A reputation that couldn’t be further from the truth.

Everyone’s trade

In reality, WordPress’s security problem is no greater than that of comparable Content Management Systems. The problem often lies with the owners who would rather have their feet in the clay than sit at a computer updating updates they don’t know about.

Customization, including security

By not choosing a theme to begin with, but going for a custom WordPress website, you already fend off the biggest risks. In doing so, 2manydots chooses only proven plugins. These are regularly updated and optimized. We also know exactly which plugins are bug-prone and which are not. And there’s more.

Ministry of Defense opts for security

The custom websites we deliver are so secure that Defense Pipeline Organization (of the Ministry of Defense) also chose to work with 2manydots.

Security measures by 2manydots

  • Weekly updates are performed to maintain cyber security.
  • We send a monthly summary of the WordPress maintenance we have performed.
  • We host your custom website only on a WordPress hosting platform selected by us.
  • We configure Cloudflare so that the website is protected against attacks and can load faster through caching, smart routing and possibly load balancing.
  • We install two-step verification when required.

When updates are no longer performed and no rooster is crowing about security, it is no wonder that a Web site becomes susceptible to leaks.
