We support two-factor authentication, continuously run malware scans, and automatically ban IPs that have more than 6 failed login attempts in a minute.
We have hardware firewalls, active and passive security, and other advanced features to prevent access to your data. But if your site is compromised, we’ll fix it for free.
We only support encrypted SFTP and SSH connections (no FTP) when accessing your WordPress sites directly and offer free Let's Encrypt certificates to enable HTTPS.
Nothing is ever 100% hack-proof. We automatically create 2 weeks worth of backups, meaning a hacked or defaced site can be instantly rolled back.
WordPress in itself is not insecure, it's usually bad user practices and out of date software that causes problems.
Here are some reasons below why secure wordpress hosting is so important:
"We had been with another hosting company for several years. Their customer service was always challenging. Two months ago, our site was hacked. Ever since then, we struggled to get it fixed. The hosting company not only doubled our monthly fees, but failed repeatedly to get the situation under control. They left us with a broken Wordpress site that they couldn't fix. We lost revenues and site visits.
Finally, someone recommended we try Kinsta. In less than 48 hours, we were full transferred over and the site was no longer broken! They fixed everything so quickly. The customer service is incredibly responsive, 24/7 access, very pleasant and timely. We are so thrilled to finally have a true hosting partner that understands and knows how to help us. We are planning a lot of growth in the next year and are grateful to have found a hosting partner we feel confident will help us succeed."

Not only do users have problems, but even the competition has encountered major security breaches over the past couple years.
This is why it is imperative that you choose a host you can trust that employs the latest security measures.
