You’ve spent time, money and energy to start a blog and the last thing you want is your website getting hacked.
It’s your website and so it’s ultimately your responsibility to put security measures in place to stop hackers getting in and hijacking your blog.
One simple action you can take to protect yourself is to ensure that you promptly update your website and its components when updates are made available.
Software companies are constantly testing and improving their software and when they find potential security loop holes or vulnerabilities they will release an update that fixes the hole.
Now if you don’t keep your website and the software that runs it up to date then hackers have an easy way to potentially get access to your website and even worse your entire web hosting account.
