Niche Website Builder is making WordPress (Niche Website Security) sites more secure on three (3) different Levels to keep hackers away from your site. Niche Website Builder is built on WordPress (multisite technology) at an enterprise level that brings cloud computing to a whole new level. Experience Security Optimization At Scale to meet the needs of niche and authority website builders.

In this post, I will outline the many ways we are keeping your sites secure; on the server level, on each WordPress site, and on the WordPress User level.

LEVEL ONE NICHE WEBSITE SECURITY: SERVER SECURITY 

  1. Daily Backups – Automated daily incremental backups, long-lived distributed backups & disaster backups.
  2. DDOS – Our servers are in a ‘closed network’ platform allowing only humans at a normal rate.
  3. WAF – Web Application Firewall tuned for WordPress that blocks over 2M requests every 24 hours.
  4. CloudScan – High efficient real-time malware detection protection tuned for WordPress.

LEVEL TWO NICHE WEBSITE SECURITY: Advance WordPress SECURITY

SSL is an additional layer of security on your site. But to optimize your site security, we implement several important security headers on your site as well. We add HSTS, and HSTS preload, which prevents your website users from loading a fake version of your website, created by a hacker. But there are more ways to break into a site. To make this as hard as possible, we add the below headers to your site.

  1. HSTS 
    1. We set this to your domain, so a browser will do all requests to your site over https from then on. So in the case where a hacker is redirecting this user to a fake domain.com, the browser remembers to use SSL because of the HSTS, so requests the secure site. But this doesn’t exist: no SSL certificate was authorized for this hacker’s fake site.
  1. Upgrade-Insecure-Requests
    1. We implement the Upgrade-Insecure-Requests header that provides an additional method to force http:// requests on your own domain to https://. All http:// requests will be automatically upgraded to https:// when this header is enabled.
  1. X-Content-Type-Options
    1. This header is implemented to force the browser not to “guess” what kind of data is passed. If the extension is “.doc”, the browser should get a .doc file, not something else (a .exe). Otherwise, the browser might be tricked into executing a script, while the user thinks he’s downloading an innocent file
  1. X-XSS-Protection
    1. Will stop pages from loading if a reflected cross-site scripting (XSS) attack is detected.
  1. X-Frame-Options
    1. The X Frame options prevent the loading of the site in an iframe. The header can declare if it is allowed to load the current site in an iframe. This prevents clickjacking, by preventing the site to get secretly embedded in another site using an iframe. We implement this header, so you should be aware that this will block your site from showing your site in an iframe on other sites.

LEVEL THREE NICHE WEBSITE SECURITY: THE WordPress USER

  1. File Change Detection
    1. If someone manages to get into your site, they’ll probably add, remove or change a file. We get email alerts showing any recent file changes so we know if you’ve been hacked. If that’s the cast we will isolate/migrate your site and remove malicious files from your site free of charge.
  1. WordPress Brute Force Protection
    1. We will limit the number of failed login attempts allowed per user with WordPress brute force protection. If someone is trying to guess your password, they’ll get locked out after a few attempts.
  1. Strong Password Enforcement
    1. Strong password enforcement is one of the best ways to lock down WordPress from hackers.
  1. Lock Out Bad Users
    1. We keep bad users away from your site if they have too many failed login attempts, if they generate too many 404 errors, or if they’re on a bot blacklist.
  1. WordPress Two-Factor Authentication
    1. With WordPress two-factor authentication, users are required to enter both a password AND a secondary code sent to a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. Both the password and the code are required to successfully log in to a user account. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of WordPress security to verify it’s actually you logging in and not someone who gained access (or even guessed) your password.

Some of these features will prevent you from using header and footer scripts from third-party services like chatbots and analytics scripts, and also from adding custom code to your WordPress sites. We solve this by adding secure plugins to the platform like;

  • Microsoft Clarity WordPress Plugin
  • Whatsapp WordPress Plugin
  • OneSignal Push Notification Plugin
  • Google Site Kit WordPress Plugin
  • Facebook Chat WordPress Plugin
  • Hotjar WordPress Plugin
  • Facebook Pixel WordPress plugin.

If their is a plugin or service you want to use that is not listed above just reach out to me here.

We are always adding security features to our platform regularly to meet your needs and give you peace of mind. Also never forget that we offer site migration off our platform in case you need it for any reason, no questions asked.
