If you use WordFence, have you had this issue ?

Wordfence is a security plugin that is used on WordPress...

Until now, I have never had WordFence to forbid me acc

Hey Rudy,

Why would you use Wordfence Security on a WA hosted website, or is your question in reference to a site hosted elsewhere?

WA has waaaaay better security making it totally unnecessary to have that type of security on your WA hosted sites.

Like website cache, the WA servers are protected at the server level, making security plugins totally unnecessary, so THAT might be your issue.

Hope you find this helpful.

Wordfence was blocking any website page I went to, even their home page!

From my reg browser, duck duck go, to others I teied, with same result.

Had nothing to do with any website hosted here.

Thats the mystery, why WF would affect my computer when browsing.

I did some research and found some answers, hopefully when I get back online I will check to see if the problem continues.

In regards to why I have WF, I have used WF since 2010, and rhat website was recentlt moved to be hosted here about 3 yrs ago.

Rudy

Wordfence has NO control over YOUR computer Rudy.

It is strictly a WordPress security plugin that is unnecessary to use on WA hosted websites.

I've too have moved sites here from other servers.

And they too had the Wordfence Security plugin installed that was deactivated immediately upon being moved to the WA server, in order NOT to cause conflict with the server-side security plugin.

Yeah, same here. And you're correct, it should not...but it does for some reason...

Rudy

Bets it is a virus on your computer masking itself as Wordfence, else there would be a massive outcry online already.

You're right, I thiught about that!

Am testing that theory now!

Rudy

Just so you know, I have a friend whom late last year, panicked.

When using her cell phone, she received a pop-up form that warned her that her phone would be locked if she did not comply.

It was made to look like Google.

Instead of stopping everything and seeking assistance, she panicked and provided her cell phone Google account access.

Then realized that her phone had been taken away from her.

She constantly blamed Google when in fact it was NOT Google, it was a fraud.

As mobile users, we all have to be soooo careful nowadays to STOP... ask questions and WAIT for PROOF before responding to a pop-up requesting you provide your access to ANY account.

It has taken my friend over 6 months of a constant nightmare and 3 cell phones later to realize SHE was the one who caused her own problem and that those pop up forms were NOT Google.

Of course! Great reminder and warning, whether on phone or desktop!

Rudy

I don't recommend Wordfence, there have been many security vulnerabilities with this plugin in the past, it creates bloat on your load times, etc.

This is ironic because it is a Wordpress plugin, but it shouldnt' be required.

Thanks Kyle,

That may be in some cases, Ive used WordFence on one website for over 10 years without any problems.

I wasnt even on the website, I was on my computer.

That sounds like a virus problem....

Can I export pages from one website to another, or is it best to have Site Support transfer the website from domain to another?

Inquiring minds want to know....grin.

Question now resolved. Thanks for your interest in helping to answer!

Rudy

Hi Rudy,

This training will help you. Diana.

Yeah, thanks!

I used the export tool, which worked perfectly.

Rudy

The video explains the same thing, how to use export-import, but especially how to transfer the comments in the case of posts. But I'm glad you sorted out.

Diana.

You can use the export tool under the dashboard and select what you want to export. Reverse the process when you want to import it Go to tools import and select file

Thanks...I knew there was a way to do this.

What other factors do you consider?

For example, they provide roadside services, the website name is So-and-So roadside services, yet they shorten the name to 'So and so

Hey Rudy,

If it's a domain for a local business, you definitely will want to consider adding location.

For example: Roadside Assistance for the GTA (being the Greater Toronto Area)... which would encompass the 401 (a major highway) too.

GTARoadsideAssistance dot com for example.

Or TorontoRoadsideAssistance dot com ...if just the city itself... but the WHOLE city.

So if a suburb only, then say... EtobicokeRoadsideAssistance dot com.

But ONLY if her/his customers have told her/him that's how they're looking for her/him or at least that's how they're finding other businesses like his/hers.

I had one client that went by his business name and when helping him improve his online visibility, I had him register [city-here}bookkeeper dot com and his ranking improved over night and has kept him ranking high ever since... along with other issues that were resolved... but mainly this one.

Hope this helps you.

Yes, thanks! Very helpful. The client has a specific name in mind, so we shall see what they want to do.

I once had a cleaning business that was called Maintenance West, serving the pacific northwest (USA).

Rudy

I think most people remember the name of a business or site title more easily than a domain name. So I'd put more time into choosing a Site Title than a domain name.
:-)
Richard

That's true. As I mentioned in my reply to Abbie, when we search for something online, we are looking or the name of, not the domain address.

When they are one and the same, that makes it easier to advance the website and get more traffic.

Thanks, Richard!

Rudy

That's true too.

Richard

You may be limiting yourself. What does the actual business do?

Domains are not so affected by SEO vs. writing quality-rich content with a good choice of keywords, the latter of which would rank you in the search engines.

If the domain is copyrighted, trademarked, or registered to an established business; you want to steer away from that, get creative, and do something totally different.

When you search online, you are looking for product name, and not so much the domain address.

If they are both one and the same, ie wealthyaffiliate.com, it speeds the search.

In this case, the question was asked of me by the client who wanted to know which version to go with, and should the domain be 'So-and-So roadside 'services', or just 'So-and-so roadside domain. Then they would name the website accordingly.

Thanks,

Rudy

LastPass is a password manager. A client is using LastPass for her WIX login credentials.

Has anyone ever used this (LastPass)?

Thanks,

That's good to know. Rudy )

Thanks! The issue is now resolved.

Check out comments on LastPass in a review on CNET (I'm not an affiliate of CNET, and haven't played one on TV-- just checked out password managers).
