You may well have heard all the buzz online about the attacks on WordPress security. Unfortunately this is no joke, and it needs to be taken very seriously, or all you've built could be hijacked or worse, lost to you.
In my view, the best way to make sure your that is secure your wordpress website is through using a WordPress backup plugin. This is a relatively inexpensive, elegant and easy to use way to make sure your site is available to you in the event of a disaster.
The one I recommend, and the approach, is to use one of the generation and storage plugins available on your browser. I believe after a trial period, you need to pay for it, although RoboForm is liked by people. I use the free version of Lastpass, and I recommend it for those of you who use Internet Explorer or Firefox. That will generate passwords for you; you use site web one master password to log in.
Keep control of your online assets - Nothing is worse than getting your livelihood in the hands of someone else. Why take chances with something as important as your website?
As I (our fictitious Joe the Hacker) understand, people have way too many usernames and passwords to remember. You have got Twitter, Facebook, your online banking, LinkedIn, two site logins, FTP, web hosting, etc. accounts that all come with logins and passwords you will need to remember.
The plugin should be updated have WordPress, play nice and to stay current with the latest WordPress release and restore capabilities. The ability to clone your website (along with regular copies ) can be helpful if you ever want to do an offline site redesign, among other things.
