Security

“Uncompromising resolve.”

Paradime’s efforts in securing our managed hosting clients is best described as uncompromising resolve.

We’ve been building websites for 25 years and building and hosting WordPress websites, specifically, for over a decade. There are very few so-called “security” companies 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 and Doubt ). It’s about the monetization of fear, which we thoroughly reject.

Many of these company also charge you thousands of dollars to run security audits that is just a mouse-click for them. We know your money is better spent.

In fact, running a security check by one of the leading companies in the world is absolutely free:

Ask yourself, when was the last time you heard about a local business website being hacked?
It’s extremely rare for a properly maintained website.

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.
