How to Secure Your WordPress Site or Blog.


WordPress is the most popular application and has been highly used by bloggers. Since WordPress uses MySQL and Php, it is common for hackers to find a vulnerability in WordPress. Here are some tips to Secure your WordPress site.


WordPress is probably the best CMS out there for blogging but is used for all types of sites as well. We offer this awesome CMS for many years for client sites. We know well that Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal and similar applications need some regular Basic work to keep them away from hacking attempts.


Useful tips to Secure Your WordPress Site or Blog:

 1.  Update WordPress

Keeping your WordPress up to date is the first and basic security tip. This is something that you never want to miss, whenever WordPress is sending an update, it means that they have fixed some bugs, added some features and most importantly added some security features and fixes. You never want to miss out on this.

 Please Update as soon as possible.

 Specially, with one click update, it’s easier to upgrade your site. Make sure, your theme and plugins are compatible with the update or else update them too. If an update has been rolled out and it’s  not a security update, just wait for 10-15 days, before other users stop reporting any bugs.


2. Update WordPress Plugins

 As, I mentioned above WordPress releases an update to fix bugs and security holes, and same goes with plugins. Many times, a vulnerable plugin or script used, can cause WordPress hacking. Some plugins are not updated by the programmers they created them, avoid those. Always, use the plugins which are constantly updated and get good support. Being dependent on such plugins, which are not updated from long is a bad idea.

 1. Choose your shopping cart tool

Choose available shopping cart options plus the online payment answers that suit you the very best.

2. Your web legal documents

Prepare your terms  conditions and conditions for sales, the return policy and a privacy policy. It would be a good idea to check that your documents fulfill the specifications of payment partners. Online templates can be downloaded for many of these documents.

3. Choose  a postage method

Various shopping carts offer numerous options for postage methods, which can be depending on a fixed cost per product and order, or an individual price for each product, based about weight, size and location. Customized solutions are available at an additional charge.

4. Research competitors' shopping cart sites

Review other sites that include similar services or products and look for ideas on types of functionality you will need in your site's cart options.

5. Coordinate your products

Plan out what sort of products will be displayed and variety them into categories, catalogues or sub-categories.

6. Take photographs

Here at giganetwebhosting.com we offer you web hosting for the most popular shopping cart software ready for installation with 1 click, using our auto installer.

We specialize ate-commerce web hosting.

 Lets take a look on 3 of these cart applications that we think as the best.



1. Magento

Magento is a professional open-source e-Commerce solution offering unprecedented freedom and control. Magento is awesome, It features clean up urls and SEO in the first place. Everything is designed in the clean and uncomplicated way. Magento in addition features: Unlimited freedom, Completely Scalable Structure, Professional and Community Support, and Smooth Integration with third party apps.

You’ve only got to consider Magento’s client number to realise what a great piece of open-source software it can be. Samsung, The North Face, Stussy and Nespresso all use it  to power their online retailers. It’s used by simply 30,000 merchants and is particularly the world’s speediest growing ecommerce software. You have to pay for the Enterprise Format, which is packed rich in extremely useful attributes, but the Community Edition, for developers only, is free to download and work with.


2. osCommerce.

osCommerce is perfectly free under the GNU General Public License and caters very well to most people’s wants. Unsurprisingly, considering how easy it is to create and run, it’s seriously popular, powering over 228,700 websites. Such popularity does come with a significant downside however- it causes it to become harder for you to differentiate your store through the thousands of others available. If you desire to stand out of the crowd, you’re going to need to use some of the 5,800 add-ons accessible, some of that cost money.


3. OpenCart

Not just does OpenCart look wonderful, it’s extremely scalable. You are able to build an unlimited number of categories, sell an unlimited number of products, accept multiple currencies, use multiple languages, and choose from over 20 payment and 8 shipping methods. It’s user-friendly in addition to search-engine-friendly as well, thus may help your own prominence inside Google. Customers can also review and rate the items you sell. It’s quite a bit less well-liked as osCommerce, so help and guidance is widely available, but it’s far better looking.


In addition to the above, our unlimited web hosting e-commerce plans offer the following with 1 click installation.

b2ap3_thumbnail_des.jpgCascading Style Sheets standards have been around for a long time, but many site owners are still a little scared by the term. It really isn't all that complex. What they basically are is a separate set of instructions, either in an external file, or embedded in the page coding that instructs a browser how to display certain elements - text, tables etc.

CSS is a very powerful tool, but added to that, using css can also be a huge time saver. Here's a scenario: you have a site of 40 pages and the main body text you use is 10pt. Arial. This would mean a lot of this kind of repetition your coding:

<p><font face="Arial" size="2">Here is some text</font></p>

If you wished to change the font to Verdana, you would need to go through all 40 pages to change over to the new font. The proper use of CSS (using an external style sheet) would mean that you would only need to make the change in one file, and the site would update globally with the changes. Also, CSS makes your pages a lot lighter and faster to download as the same instructions don't need to be repeated throughout the coding.

There are 3 types of CSS:

1.Inline Style
Can be added to any individual html tag in a page.

b2ap3_thumbnail_wordp.jpgWordpress Optimization

Here are some tips for the wordpress optimization and better performance. It will reduce the CPU burden by wordpress on the server and your pages will run smoothly at the wordpress hosting server.

1) Upgrade your WordPress to the latest version if you haven’t. You are probably reluctant to upgrade if it’s already working but note that every WordPressupdate always contains bug fixes and improvements so there is no reason not to upgrade.

2)  Remove all the plugins. 
I know the plug-ins are nice. Are you sure you really need those plug-ins?. If you don't need them, just delete it only use the inevitable one.

3) Only activate plug-ins when you need them.
For example, you don’t need to activate a Theme previewing plug-in if you are not planning to change a theme. You don’t need to activate a WordPress database backup plug-in if you are not auto scheduling a backup, and so on.

4 )Install WP-SuperCache if you haven’t. [Most Important One]
It is clear that the wp supercache has great performance while having the lowest overall resource hit on the server. It should always be using the least amount of memory and CPU time that it possibly can.

5)Reduce PHP/Database calls as much as you can.
Most CPU usage is caused by the number PHP and database calls. Using WP-SuperCache helps this tremendously but sometimes it can’t be helped that yourblog still has to do some PHP/Database calls. If you can reduce it though, do it. For example if a plug-in allows
