3. WordPress sites aren’t secure

WordPress is just as secure as all the other systems available. But there are measures you can take to ensure your site remains secure and is free from threats. Keep your WordPress site up to date and make sure your passwords are difficult to guess and changed often. The easiest way to guarantee security for your site is by going with a web host, that will not only back up your site but protect your site from cross infection from other sites on the same server. Web Hosts will also be able to quickly react to any new threats before they attack your site. Find out more about WordPress hosting here.
