What Is WordPress Managed Hosting?
WordPress Managed Hosting is a web hosting plan that is optimized and customized for the WordPress CMS. Standard and shared hosting plans can support the WordPress architecture, but are not necessarily configured, optimized, monitored and managed with what WordPress needs to perform optimally.
What is Fully-Managed WordPress Hosting?
Fully-Managed Hosting is a WordPress managed hosting plan that includes additional services designed to allow your website to perform at its peak potential and at the same time, be stable and secure. For example, in addition to an optimum hosting environment, Fully-Managed WordPress hosting includes daily backups, security updates, core software updates, plugin updates, uptime monitoring, technical support and more.
Why is WordPress Managed Hosting so important?
Unlike normal hosting plans that are configured for generic static websites, WordPress hosting requires a specific level of care, configuration, and security to ensure that they operate without issues—like being hijacked or getting a white screen of death (WSOD). WordPress Managed Hosting plans have a specific set of features required to keep your WordPress website up-and-running and healthy.
Why is security monitoring necessary with WordPress Managed Hosting?
Because WordPress is the most popular and famous CMS in the world—hackers are very familiar with it and try to hack it in a multitude of ways. WordPress Managed Hosting provides multiple layers of security including but not limited to regular website hardening, software updates, strong passwords, security monitoring, and SSL certificates. If your website gets hacked, highjacked or goes down—we fix it.
Security Policies for Red8 Interactive Projects and Hosted Sites
We have had one compromised site since 1995.
Red8 Interactive follows modern best practices in our continued efforts to prevent and mitigate security-related incidents in our projects and hosted sites. Our portfolio includes sites for large national firms, banks, and other security-sensitive organizations.
Modern hosting services
We rely on the security, monitoring, and recovery resources provided by our hosting service partners, and select reputable hosting services with proven track records.
We encourage all of our clients to use Cloudflare for their edge traffic and benefit from Cloudflare’s additional resources and best-in-class denial of service mitigation.
Modern credential storage
Credentials (usernames, passwords, and related information) are a common source of security breaches. We store all credentials in BitWarden, a modern credential management system. Passwords are unique and randomly generated.
Vulnerabilities in WordPress themes, plugins, and other components are also a frequent source of security incidents. WordPress projects require frequent updates to prevent the exploitation of these vulnerabilities, and we use a popular third-party service to notify us of available updates and make the update process as easy as possible.
We use multiple tools and services to provide constant monitoring and rapid alerts for uptime, errors, and potential security issues.
Multiple third-party services take daily snapshots of all of our sites and store them for varying periods of at least 30 days. These backups allow us to revert unwanted changes to sites and gather more information in the event of a security breach. The backups are not accessible from any of our hosted sites.
All of our sites have either WordFence or iThemes Security Pro installed to provide an additional layer of defense against malicious traffic and warnings for updates, vulnerabilities, and incidents.
We encourage our clients to minimize the number of administrative accounts on their sites and regularly review notifications for inactive user profiles.
We audit our sites a couple of times each year for inactive accounts and other potential issues that haven’t already been handled by all of the processes above.
How you can help
Weak and reused passwords on administrative accounts can still provide attackers with access to sites. Please use a modern password manager that will generate and store unique, random passwords for you.
