It is therefore extremely important to choose a good hosting provider for your WordPress website. Choose a good hosting partner. Check with your hosting provider what steps they take to avoid the hacking of websites.

Some things you should look for when choosing a hosting party:

  1. Do they support the latest versions of PHP and MySQL?
  2. Is the server is optimized for WordPress websites?
  3. Does the hosting provider use a firewall?
  4. How proactive is the hosting party in preventing and resolving security issues?
  5. Does the hosting party automatically and regularly back up your WordPress website?
