I would like to ask if you use or prefer a plugin to increase the security of the websites you own.

Let's make a debate on that!

Thanks in advance

You do not need extra security if your sites are hosted here at Wealthy Affiliate, that is all taken care of for you within our sophisticated and ultra secure hosting platform. If you are hosting elsewhere, you may need this sort of security as other hosts are vulnerable to hacking but we have you covered here within our platform.

Another plugin like this will just be a waste if you are hosting here. I don't recommend it.

Hi Kyle!

Thanks for dropping by! I am very happy with the hosting here and I 'll stick to it for sure, if you say so, regarding the security, I'll stay with the one provided here. I definitely don't want to overload my websites with many plugins since I believe that they make them load slowly which causes visitors to fly away!

Thanks again and I appreciate your reply!

I am not sure why there should be a debate about security.

Hi Ken, we do not debate about security, just looking for suggestions on plugins used by members for some "extra" security

Hi again Ken!

Debate = discussion. A discussion about different plugins regarding the above-mentioned subject.

Discussions can cause arguments like "Do we need extra security?" or X-plugin is better than Y-Plugin etc

Of course, the debate/discussion is not about .. "Do we need any kind of Security or not?" Definitely we need to have our website secured and safe! That's not to be discussed anyway and SiteRubix is providing one already for us as a standard feature.

Hope this time I made things clear for you my friend. Sorry, if I wasn't clear enough, but my distance from U.S. is between 4300Nm to 6000Nm by plane (flying in Great circle) and sometimes I might miss something.

I use Wordfence plugin (free) on all my websites that are not hosted at WA. Because it requires an outbound connection it doesn't work on sites hosted on SiteRubix. I receive several emails every day from Wordfence to let me know about all the brute force attacks attempted on my websites. Since I started using it none of my websites have been hacked. ~Marion

Hi Marion, I 've checked Wordfence in one of my niches and I had to face that ... connection failure which is not driving me anywhere. At least I know now that it's not my fault that it can't "communicate" with SiteRubix. Thanks for sharing that!

Hey Gus,

I use WpSecurityPlus.com (no affiliation). Since I haven't used any others I can't make any claims as to it being the best. But I can say that since I've installed it on several of my sites about a year ago, I haven't had any hacking. Prior to that I used to get my sites hacked all the time.

There are free security plugins available and perhaps other members that have used them can attest to them.

Since the one I use works for me I choose to stick with it. The cost is $7. That's for unlimited websites that you own.

Again, I get nothing for recommending the plugin.

Best Regards,
Jim

I used to use : https://wordpress.org/plugins/better-wp-security/ on shared hosting. But now I use managed hosting, so they take care of keeping an eye on any suspicious activities on the server.
