WordPress is a fabulous resource, allowing anyone to build a basic WordPress website with very little skill. It is basically plug and play.
And then it all goes horribly wrong…
When I first started building websites, I ignored WordPress totally initially. I thought that sites had to be built the old fashioned way, with html, and a degree in computer science – or with the assistance of a company who would chargbe zillions per hour and not give you what you wanted, when you wanted it.
Then I was introduced to WordPress websites. What an amazing difference! I could build a basic site, and add lots of bells and whistles to it, to produce something half reasonable, albeit a little clunky. And that was where the dream ended…
My WordPress Websites Big Mistake
My first mistake was to use a free theme for my site. In fact, I built several sites as I was so blown away by the apparent simplicity of the program.
Then I found that the majority of the free themes contained malware, so that hackers could either steal info from my site or hold it to ransom.
I used some of the great plugins that you get with WordPress websites (these are bolt-on programs that allow you to do various things on your site, or offer your visitors extra goodies).
Then I found that many of these plugins were of poor quality, and extremely vulnerable to attack too!
WordPress websites account for over 40% of all websites in the world . As more and more ‘newbies’ come on the scene, wanting their own websites, they are easy prey to the circling sharks, ready to hack into their website, or hold it to ransom in return for bitcoin. As there are over 27 million live WordPress websites, these sharks are having a feeding frenzy. Apparently, there is an attack every 30 seconds on the Internet.
