Hi reader!

Over the years I've had several clients have their sites hacked. Almost ALWAYS it was because their site software was very out of date. This is why I no longer host websites that are not on a site care plan with me.  I have to keep my hosting server secure for ALL my clients.  Recently I had a former client have a site hacked and asked to come back into the fold. Unfortunately for them it was an expensive trip.  Their site was so out of date it needed to be completely overhauled.  What would happen if you never changed the oil in your car - yikes! See what I'm getting at?

Well, I thought this article may come in handy for those that manage their own site and how to keep it secure.

Yes, I've got a plug for my site care plans too ;-)

Hope you all are thriving!   

Until next month . . .
