Welcome to my blog! My name is Douglas Bernanke. I have always wanted to start a business and have had the finances and knowledge to do so. But something has always occurred in my life that has interfered, whether it be my sick mom or a brother who desperately needed help getting back on his feet. But I have kept the entrepreneurial flames burning and have continued to research and prepare for the day when I will finally take the plunge and start my business. If you are like me and want to be highly prepared and informed before jumping into the world of business, this is the blog for you!
Whether you have a simple and small blog that you want to share with friends or if you have a bigger and more popular blog, keeping your blog safe and secure from hackers is probably something that is very important to you. Even though hackers can sometimes beat even the most secure websites, you can help make your blog much more difficult for hackers to get into by following these steps:
Purchase an SSL Certificate
If you do not have one already, then you need to purchase an SSL certificate for your website. This will help you make your website much more secure from hackers, but it has other benefits as well. For example, an SSL certificate is great for building trust with the people who visit your blog. It will also help with things that you might not expect, such as boosting your search engine rankings so that more people can find your blog.
Add a Security Plug-In
Did you know that there are security plug-ins that you can use with blog platforms like WordPress that will help you keep your site secure? Just as you can install plug-ins for other things -- like making it easy for people to share your blog posts with their social media followers -- you can also add security-related plug-ins. Some of these plug-ins are actually free to install and use, although there are some great paid options out there, too. Installing a plug-in and making sure that you keep it updated is a great step to take if you'd like to keep your website safe.
Make Sure Your Password is Difficult to Guess
It might seem like a no-brainer, but making sure that your password is difficult to guess can actually go a long way toward protecting your site from hackers. Come up with a password that uses a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and symbols for best results.
If you have a blog of your own, it's important to do what you can to protect it from hackers. After all, you don't want hackers to be able to mess up the blog that you have worked really hard on, or access information that they should not have access to. It's true that there is always some sort of risk of hacking when you're online and when you own a blog, but the steps above are very helpful, easy, and effective for preventing hackers from being a problem.Share
