Find free online tools that help your site be secure
If you’re like most business owners, your WordPress website is a crucial part of your business. It’s where you can connect with customers and keep them informed about your products, services and events.
Your website is especially important if it’s a place where you sell your products. You want customers to have a consistent and terrific experience, and disruptions and bad actors can cause you money!
At BigTB, we use zero-trust servers that are physically locked up and installed with all of the latest malware protections. We can also set up configurations to make sure your business never goes down. But in the meantime, get started with some basic security procedures to make sure your website and business can stay up as much as possible!
How to use Cloudflare SSL + CDN in order to protect your website from these basic threats:
Cloudflare is a content delivery network (CDN), which means it stores static files on their servers and serves them up from there instead of from your own site’s server when someone visits it over the web. This makes loading pages faster and protects against denial-of-service attacks (DDoS). You can also add additional security features like HTTPS (HTTP over SSL) with Cloudflare as well—just choose the option when signing up!
You can get started with Cloudflare for free, and upgrade as your business and website needs grow. Here’s how you get started:
1) Go to the Cloudflare website (cloudflare.com) and click “Sign Up” in the top-right corner.
2) If this is your first time using Cloudflare, you’ll need to use your email address and a password to create an account. Make sure your password is secure! Then you will need to verify your account by email. If you already have an account, click “Sign In.”
3) Once you’ve logged in, choose the domain for which you’d like to install Cloudflare by clicking on it from the list of domains listed under “My Domains.” Then click “Continue.”
4) Scroll down until you see the section called “Security.” Here, check off both boxes next to “Automatic HTTPS Rewrites” and then click “Next Step.”
5) On this page, choose whether or not you’d like Cloudflare to protect each of your subdomains individually—that is, do they need their own SSL certificate? If so, select “Yes” at the bottom of this page; if not, select “No.” Then click on the link that says: “Continue – Add SSL Certificates.”
An SSL certificate on your website so that all traffic between users and the server is encrypted. This means that no one can see what’s being sent between them—including hackers who might try to steal passwords or credit card information! Jetpack also has other security features such as two-factor authentication (which protects against brute force attacks) and password protection for each blog post or page so only you can edit them afterwards).
