WordPress Website Security Setup (highly recommended)

The WordPress Website Setup Security enhancement takes the basic install of a WordPress website to a higher level of security. This is a onetime configuration done during the initial setup. These additional steps help ensure that all aspects of your website are as secure as possible**.

These are some of the steps that are taken in the WordPress Website Setup Security enhancement:

  • Customize the default database table names.
  • Customize the default “admin” account to prevent hackers trying to access the “admin” account.
  • Protect WordPress’s configuration files
  • Ensure all file and folder permissions are set to the proper settings to ensure files are Read Only and can’t be manipulated.
  • Replace WordPress’s default Authentication Keys with updated Keys.
  • Prevent Directory listing
  • Protect the Administrators directory
  • Lock down the WordPress Login screen – Prevents multiple invalid login attempts and emails admin, plus other constraints.
  • Strong encrypted passwords are used.
  • Remove WordPress version number from webpage’s source code.

**Please Note that no website is completely hack proof. But the steps taken in the “Website Setup Security” enhancement helps to ensure that the latest security procedures are implemented.




Website File Maintenance (highly recommended)

This Enhancement ensures that the WordPress Core files, the theme, and all of the Plugin’s used in your website are always up-to-date. If these important website files are left unchecked, they become out of date, and vulnerable to being hacked. With this Enhancement added to your website,  “Brute-Force” attacks, and other hackers attempts are minimized by keeping your website running with the latest software.

Before any plugin is update the Change Log is reviewed to ensure the plugin will not conflict with other plugins or not compatible with the current version of WordPress.

A Free Backup Plugin is installed. Full backups are scheduled weekly and Database backups are scheduled daily. Backups are stored on the servers where your hosting plan is located.*


Work performed on your website:

  • WordPress Core files are updated to the most recent release available
  • Website is inspected for any out-of-date Plugins. Upgrades are installed as necessary or plugins are replaced if they are no longer supported by the programmer.
  • Theme is updated to the most recent version available, this includes Premium Themes as well
  • Backup Plugin is installed. Two backup types are scheduled.
  • Any comments that are currently held for moderation are reviewed. If it’s a known SPAM comment, it’s flagged as SPAM.


* NOTE: as your website grows, the free plugin backup may not be enough for your website. It may be necessary to utilize a paid website backup solution if the local backups begin to fail.




Search Engine Friendly Website Setup

(highly recommended)

Do you want the search engines to easily be able to crawl your website and know exactly what each page and image represents? Of course you do! This is one aspect to get better rankings. It also helps to make your pages more relevant in the results page of a Google search.

The easier it is for the search engines to know what is on your website then the better your website will appear in the “eyes” of the search engines.

This service starts from the title of the first webpage, to the images that are uploaded to your website, through to the last web page that is created.

Search engines scan each webpage for title, URL, content, and images. If that information is not clear to the search engines then your web page could be ranking for the wrong subject.

Search engines are not able to determine what is on a web page’s image. The search engines must be give this information through the images meta tags and file name.

The page title URL and usage of Headings are also important to the search engines to better know what content can be found on the web page.

Here is a list of tasks performed for the Search Engine Friendly Website Setup

  • Image optimization plugin is installed to your website
  • Image Meta data and file renaming are implemented for each image uploaded.
  • SEO and Sitemap plugins are installed to your website.
  • Page URL’s are better structured
  • Headings and sub-headings are used on web pages
  • Page Title and Page Description Meta data are added.
  • Anchor texts (Hyperlinks) are properly setup

Note: Image Gallery optimization is priced separately.




Premium Website Theme (recommended)

Your website comes with the standard WordPress default theme. This standard theme has most of the functionality that you will need; however, it’s very bland in appearance. You want your website to stand out, and not look like you are reading from a text document.

A Premium Theme has a more professional look and feel. Everything about the Premium Theme is taken up several notches from the Standard Themes.

To see demos of each of these themes, visit the Premium Themes web page. The purchase of a Premium Theme for your website, includes FREE Setup/Configuration of the themes options (except for “Divi” theme, see note below) .





Website Support

Adding Website Support allows the ability to have updates done to your website to suit your needs. If you want to change an image, colors, add a webpage, or any text within your website, then this Option is what you need. It is also for any support issues that may come up for your website or shopping cart purchases.

Plans are based on time lots. If more time is required during a particular month, you will be billed at the regular hourly rate for the additional time. Make sure you enroll for a plan that will cover your needs and requirements to help you maximize your savings. Unused time during a month does not carry over into the next month. The 1 hour per month plan is recommended to start. You can increase your hours per month if necessary.




Add a Favicon to your Webpage Tab

A Favorites Icon, or better known as a Favicon, is the graphic icon you see when you bookmark a website as one of your Favorites. It’s displayed just to the left of a Tab of the Browser. You must supply the image or graphic that you want converted to a Favicon. This could be your company logo, website’s background image, or any other image you would like.

Here is the Favicon for this website: Favicon for Silver Knight Author Websites
