If a user password is discovered by a hacker with at lease a level of Author or higher. The hacker can gain full control of your WordPress Website. What they will do is up to them. However they can change your website however they want. This can include removing your backup copies and deleting your site.

While doing some keyword research earlier for a customer, we found most and nearly all of her competitors had nice looking websites. Nearly all were built by big companies focused on profit but not on service. Her competitors had very few (and in a few cases, NO) keywords properly inserted into their website code. Because of this their Search Engine Rankings were VERY poor. The websites looked great but with poor search engine rankings they will not gain the traffic needed to make them profitable.
This is typical of what we find with websites built by the big companies. They offer nice looking websites for a low price. But what good is it to have a nice-looking website when people can’t find it. That is what happens when price is the main thing you look at.
Today we started a campaign on Facebook to promote our WordPress maintenance backups and updates. If you have a WordPress website we strongly recommend you have a current backup. The code that makes WordPress work can be hacker friendly if not kept up to date. This makes it very important to keep your WordPress installation up to date and backed up! Even with all the code up to date you can be hacked. Don’t risk losing your website to hackers. Call us 704-660-7052.
We can do as much or as little as you require. We have options to keep your WordPress Software and plugins up to date and maintain an up to date backup. With good management of your site in place, you can rest easy that it will be very unlikely that you will get hacked. And if you get hacked (and the hackers are trying) your website can be restored. WordPress websites are one of the most hacked items on the internet because if a hacker gets in to your website, they can do so much. They have all sorts of reasons to get access to a website and none of them are good.
