About This Class

bcb37a11

You've put so much time and money into building your WordPress website. Now It's time to protect all your hard work and make sure hackers can't take full control of your website.

An unprotected WordPress website is a gold mine for hackers. They target easy to access and vulnerable websites so they can inject their spam spam links, redirect your website to theirs and even take over full control of your website for financial gain. 

When this happens to you, you can get blacklisted by Google, lose your organic rankings, have your site taken down and even lose your website completely. If you're not prepared, you may have to start from scratch. It's scary what hackers can do and it's an extremely bad position to be in.

Spending even an hour on website security by implementing a handful of easy tactics can greatly improve the security of your WordPress website and encourage hackers to go elsewhere.

In this course you will not only discover the exact steps to take, you can follow along step-by-step and start protecting your website as you go so by the end of the course your website will be much safer. 

Every single day tens of thousands of WordPress websites are attacked. Don't let yours be one of them.
