What are the other reasons for WordPress logging out?February 22, 2023 at 1:53 pm in reply to: How to improve the security of your WooCommerce store? #1173
Operating an online store is not a joke. It requires a lot of work to start one, never mind managing a profitable online business. You’ll constantly be adding things, fixing problems, and starting brand-new marketing initiatives and campaigns.
Additionally, as cybercrime is on the rise, the security of the eCommerce website is yet another issue that occupies company owners greatly. Therefore, tight security measures are a requirement whether you’re setting up a new WooCommerce shop or considering a migration from another eCommerce platform.
Here is the checklist that you should cross-check in your WooCommerce Store:
1. Investment in Secure Hosting Solution
Your website needs high-quality, safe hosting because it serves as the public face of your business. The best WooCommerce hosting providers take extra precautions to protect their computers from common threats.
The most crucial component of your WooCommerce site’s protection is your hosting provider.
2. Use SSL Certificates And The HTTPS Prefix
Making the transition to HTTPS and obtaining an SSL certificate is another way to secure your WooCommerce website. Your website is vulnerable to cyberattacks because the outdated HTTP technology is not encrypted. The internet communication protocol HTTPS, on the other hand, shields any data sent between your machine and the server from external dangers.
3. To Increase Protection, Use Two-Factor Authentication
An additional layer of security is provided by adding a two-step Authenticator to your WooCommerce logins, particularly when protecting against common viruses like phishing. A website can easily be lost, but going the additional mile to authenticate the user ultimately protects them better. Although there are other alternatives, Google Authenticator is what we use at Interrupt Media.
4. WooCommerce permissions cap
One of the best security measures you can take to protect your WooCommerce website is to use permissions to restrict changing and WordPress admin access to only those who need it.
5. Limit Login Attempts
Furthermore, if you limit login attempts it helps to prevent unauthorized access. The app Login LockDown can record the IP address and timestamp of any failed login attempt and alert you so you can verify the attempts were authentic before granting the user access again.

Now more than ever, there is a risk of having private or business information compromised. Therefore, it’s critical to protect all of your data and train your staff on how to avoid phishing emails, malware, and other hacking techniques.
Some of the most effective strategies to protect yourself from hacking are listed below:
- Use strong passwords
You’re at a greater risk of being hacked if you use basic passwords for your important accounts. You’ll find that many people get hacked because the hacker knows enough details about them to create a password-cracking algorithm or simply guess their passwords. If you use the same password for all your accounts, it means that if the hacker guesses your password correctly, several of your accounts will be compromised.
- Enable two-factor authentication
Nowadays, most platforms have moved to two-factor authentication (or 2-step verification), so it makes sense to follow suit with your personal passwords. Using two-factor authentication basically means that you need more than a password to prove that you’re the owner of the account.
- Avoid linking accounts
It’s very common for people to link their personal accounts together for easier access. While it might make things easier for you when trying to login into different platforms, it can have very negative effects if your account gets hacked.
- Train your team
If you want to keep your business data safe and away from hackers’ reach, you need to consider educating your team about basic security protocols and measures.
- Never leave your laptop or mobile phone unattended
There are many people out there who tend to leave their gadgets unattended. If you have to leave your laptop or mobile phone unattended, at least ensure that it is locked.
It can be very simple to fall into the traps that hackers have set up for you to obtain your personal data when it comes to your electronic gadgets. We frequently use our phones and computers, especially in this digital age, and many programs have made it more simple for us by connecting accounts to other apps.
It is wise to use WordPress security best practices to your website. Cyberattacks may result in significant damage that costs a lot of money to repair. Regrettably, occasionally the safeguards you put in place for your website can result in mistakes.
Here are some tips to secure your website from CyberAttacks:
Technically, you are implementing HSTS on the web server, and HTTP queries to your WordPress website then benefit from this. A 301 redirect is typically added when switching from HTTP to HTTPS. Google has explicitly stated that the HSTS header and both 301 server redirection are compatible.
Although our systems automatically favor the HTTPS version, you can additionally make this more obvious to other search engines by rerouting traffic from your HTTP site to its HTTPS counterpart and by adding the HSTS header to your server.
- Enable HSTS in Apache
The virtual hosts file should now include the following code.
“Header always set Strict-Transport-Security max-age=31536000”
- Enable HSTS in NGINX
Add the following code to your NGINX config.
“add_header Strict-Transport-Security “max-age=31536000”;”
The last thing a website owner wants is for their WordPress website to experience difficulties or become inaccessible to users.Do you have any inquiries concerning fixing issues with your WordPress website? Post your inquiries in the comments section below!November 16, 2022 at 9:07 am in reply to: Why is WordPress.com considered more Secure than WordPress.org? #146
First of all, I would like you to know the major difference between WordPress.com & WordPress.org.Though they seem to be similar but are different in many ways.
The following are the main variations between WordPress.com and WordPress.org:
WordPress.com – You may simply start a blog and upload blog entries using the hosted blog publishing platform WordPress.com. It is limited in scope but simple to use because everything is handled for you.
WordPress.org – It is a self-hosted content management system (CMS) that is free and open source but requires a domain, web hosting, and setup. Although it takes a bit more effort, it offers much more freedom. WordPress.org is typically meant when the term “WordPress” is used.
Now the question arises, why WordPress.com is preferred over WordPress.org in terms of security?
WordPress.com – Since this is a hosted option, the security of your website is entirely up to the provider. Backups are included with subscription levels, and if you use Business or eCommerce, plugins are an option. Otherwise, you have no control over it.
WordPress.org – Since WordPress is open source, anyone may examine its code and help make it safer. On a high-quality web server, the default installation is actually quite safe.
With some carefully selected WordPress security plugins and by adhering to some security best practices, you can massively increase that.November 10, 2022 at 12:13 pm in reply to: Why Businesses should sell Services with WooCommerce ? #95
