A hacked WordPress site can cause serious damage to your business revenue and reputation. Hackers can steal user information, passwords, install malicious software, and can even distribute malware to your users. Worst, you may find yourself paying ransomware to hackers just to regain access to your website.
Security is a huge importance for every WordPress website owner. Each week, Google blacklists around 20,000 websites for malware and around 50,000 for phishing. If you are serious about your site, then you need to pay attention to your website security.
One subject that is often confusing is that of Secure (SSL) HTTPS WordPress hosting.
What it is and do you really need it.
To help clarify these questions, we will take a detailed look at exactly why SSL Hosting for your website is so important.
When looking for a company to host your WordPress site, one of the first things that you will see is that some hosts sound as if they are vastly cheaper than others. While it is possible to find dirt cheap hosting, is that really what you want or need?
The simple answer is Security. A secure hosting service comes with a higher price tag because it involves more features and services, most of which is geared towards ensuring your site is safe and secure, both for your users and for your own content.
While it is understandable to sometimes go for the cheapest or most popular hosting. It is critical to go in with your eyes wide open. The cheapest options are simply a space for your site to exist, and not much more. Secure WordPress Hosting, often called "Managed Hosting" gives you more bang for your buck.
The massive popularity of WordPress has led to the rise of a lot of different WordPress Hosting Providers. Finding a website host is incredibly easy these days. If anything, having many companies to choose from can be a problem, as it can make it difficult to make a decision.
As with any area of your business, not all options are required. It seems that good options are limited to those companies capable of delivering safe and effective hosting.
In the online world, safety is paramount, and having a secure website SHOULD be non-negotiable. Without SSL you risk data loss, private data exposure, defacement, pharma hacks and a myriad of other ways in which your brand, and customers, can be damaged. Security should not be thought of as an optional extra. It is a requirement.
A secure package will not only come with a space for your website, but also a range of other key features, including:
HTPS or SSL certificates are provided for all WordPress hosting accounts at no additional charge.
ConfigServer Firewall (CSF) and other safety features such as DDoS Protection. It is probably the most popular and the best security tool that can protect your Server and websites against brute force attacks and improve your security.

As you scale your business and grow more successful, and expand your online efforts, Security is unquestionably an essential element. The bigger your business grows (or you want it to grow) the more essential secure hosting becomes. If you're looking for a website solution that's hassle-free and covers all the bases, secure hosting is essential for moving your business forward.
