Paradime’s efforts in securing our managed hosting clients is best described as uncompromising resolve.
We’ve been building and hosting websites for 25 years and WordPress websites, specifically, for over a decade. There are very few so-called “security” companies in the region that have the expertise and track-record that we do.
We implement various sets of best practices with the websites we host. This includes:
- Ensuring WordPress, the theme and plugins are always up-to-date.
- Using themes and plugins from reputable and established developers.
- Using themes and plugins that are legally and properly licensed.
- Enforcing “strong” password requirements for admin accounts.
- Installing and properly configuring WordPress-based security tools .
- Installing and properly configuring server-based security tools.
- Banning IP addresses of those attempting to hack your website.
It’s unfortunate that many so-called “security” companies resort to scare tactics. They use a disinformation strategy called FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt ). It’s about the monetization of fear, which we thoroughly reject.
Many of these company also charge you hundreds or even thousands of dollars to run security audits that is just a mouse-click for them. In fact, many of these tools are available for free:
We know your money is better spent.
Although anyone can easily install WordPress security plugins, making sure they’re set up properly is part of our “secret sauce.” After all, just installing plugins isn’t enough to fully secure your website.

FUN FACT: Back in 1997, we built one of our very first website servers using Red Hat Linux v4. It was located at our former office in North Hollywood, California (pictured right). We also provided a dial-up Internet service using the Galacticomm Worldgroup Server v3 exclusive to Paradime clients in the Los Angeles area.
