WordPress Installation

It can be daunting to install WordPress for the first time. There are a lot of moving parts, such as purchasing the domain name and hosting account, using the cPanel, creating a database, installing an SSL certificate, and setting up an FTP account.

All of this has to be done before you can even upload the WordPress files and run the installation. And once you get WordPress up and running, then you’ll need to install the theme and additional plugins.

Does it sound complicated? Fortunately, our WordPress Installation Service can help get your website up and running worry free.

WordPress Security

Last: We install WordPress and secure it at the start

Because there are default installation settings in WordPress that may leave your website vulnerable to hack attempts, we will install free plugins and configure WordPress to improve website security. Some of this includes: locking the administrator account after too many failed password attempts, filtering traffic to the website, and changing file permissions on the hosting account to prevent tampering.

WordPress is an open source software and is currently one of the most popular blogging and content management systems (CMS). This makes it a target for hackers and spammers. We will take careful security precautions during the installation that include:

  • Using a database prefix other than the WordPress default
  • Creating an initial administrator account that isn’t the default admin username
  • Helping you choose a strong password for your login
  • Installing plugins to help make WordPress more secure
