Security and Backup Services for WordPress Sites

Keep your site safe, secure, constantly backed up, and free from intruders.

Should I worry about security?

Yes. But you shouldn’t have to.

Unfortunately all websites are targets for hackers and spammers, and the more popular your website becomes, the more important it is for you keep your site and content safe.

Satisfaction guarantee

If for any reason you’re not satisfied we will issue a full refund within thirty days. No questions asked.

Doesn’t my host provide backups and security?

Yes. Most hosting companies nowadays provide a backup service (in fact, if yours doesn’t, we’d recommend finding one that does). However if your site represents your brand or directly generates revenue we don’t recommend putting all your eggs in one basket.

A backup you can rely on should something go wrong with your host can avoid a lot of panic (and lost traffic) at critical moments.
