OUR ‘SECURITY GUARDS’ INTERCEPTS ALL WEB REQUESTS BEFORE THEY REACH THE WEB SERVER

Before anyone visits your website, they are vetted at the DNS level before they reach the server by CloudFlare, which not only protects but accelerates the website. All web traffic is routed through CloudFlare’s intelligent global network, which automatically optimises the delivery of your web pages giving your visitors the best performance and fastest page load times available. CloudFlare also blocks threats and limits abusive bots and crawlers from wasting your bandwidth and server resources.

This results in your website having improved security, a decrease in spam and attacks and huge performance gains with the power of CloudFlare.

How a website is exposed to the internet

  1. Normal website visitors
  2. Bots / crawlers
  3. Attackers / bad bots

Security

NO MORE SECURITY PLUGINS

Since we handle all of the security at the server level, there’s no need for security plugins anymore. In fact, we recommend that you not even install them. Conflicting plugins bring performance issues of their own, so why bother? We’ve got you covered.

STRONG PASSWORD ENFORCEMENT

Create complex passwords. It’s one of the best things you can do as far as web security. We go to great lengths to ensure that our clients use strong passwords. It makes a hacker’s job incredibly tough, and we are very into that.

LIMITED LOGIN ATTEMPTS

Brute force attacks are some of the most common ways that attackers gain access to a WordPress site. We protect against this both at the site and server level; multiple failed attempts means malicious users can never get inside.

MANAGED WORDPRESS UPDATES

No doubt you want your WordPress software to always be running the most up-to-date and secure version. Admittedly keeping up-to-date can be a painful task. But you’re in luck — we handle all of the core WordPress updates for you.

MALWARE SCANNING WITH EVERY SITE

We use Sucuri, the leading provider of WordPress security solutions to monitor your site for malware and other related anomalies.

Performance

The faster a web page loads, the better the user experience is — and Google rates that.


CONTENT DISTRIBUTION NETWORK

By including your site on a Content Distribution Network (CDN), we ensure that your site is not only fast and responsive, but there is security through redundancy. If the connection to the server fails, your site visitors will be redirected to another copy of your website, ensuring that your online presence remains – even withstanding natural disasters. There are also massive performance benefits to this technology such as reduced download times.

SUPERIOR CACHING

In short, caching a website generates a copy of your web pages and stores them in your server as static files (i.e. as HTML documents) and/or cached database queries. Afterwards, when a site visitor arrives at a particular page, the server gives them the cached page rather than re- querying your database and dynamically generating it, thus speeding up page response times and potentially reducing the server resources required for generating and serving a web page.

Depending on the sites of the site/volume of traffic, we may suggest using a Varnish/Nginx/ Memcache system where the cache is stored in memory and not on the hard drive like traditional caching systems. In doing so, it is able to serve thousands more consecutive requests per second.
