WordPress Security

Security is of utmost importance to our clients so we ensure WordPress installations are secured on multiple levels. Our WordPress developers use enterprise-level WordPress hosting from WP Engine which is universally considered the best hosting for WordPress. 

WP Engine detects threats and blocks attacks to your WordPress website and can be secured with multi-factor password authentication requiring an administrators mobile phone to gain access to your files.

We integrate your website with Cloudflare DNS to provide DDoS mitigation, Bot management and provide further performance and security enhancements.

Caching & CDN

WPEngine web hosting for WordPress in based in London with a CDN that has several global server locations to deliver assets faster as they are closer to your international website visitors. Images, CSS and JS files benefit from the performance enhancements due to the CDN reducing your web page loading speed and increasing your Google PageSpeed score. 

SSL Certificate

All WordPress hosting we provide includes an SSL certificate. This ensures data transfer is encrypted between your WordPress website and your website visitors. 

Google recommends all websites use an SSL certificate which will improve your website’s rank on Google.

We can import an existing SSL certificate or use a specific SSL certificate if required for a higher level of security, ideal for WooCommerce websites.

Daily Backups

Your WordPress hosting is automatically backed-up daily with copies retained for at least 30 days.

On demand backups of your WordPress website can be made which are useful if you need to make updates to plugins or add new functionality.

Previous website backups can be restored within minutes from within the WPEngine dashboard. 

A staging and development server is also available which also provide daily backups. 

Code Optimisation

WordPress developer optimises your websites to ensure only the required JS and CSS files are loaded per page. 

Unused files are often automatically added by WordPress plugins and themes causing web page bloat and can significantly slow down your website.

We identify those redundant files and prevent them from loading throughout the site. 

Code is further optimised by minifying and combining files which enhances loading times further. 

Image Optimisation

Images make up the majority of a web page size and have the biggest impact on page loading times. 

We created several images sizes to ensure the correct size is derived to the device it is being viewed. This allows for smaller image file sizes to be delivered which can greatly speed up your website and reduce data usage.

Images are also compressed with no visible loss of quality which can reduce file sizes by 50% or more.

FAQs about WordPress Development, Plugins & Hosting with information about our services, the benefits of working with WP Agency and how you can hire us for your next Wordpress development project.

We can migrate Joomla or Drupal websites into WordPress as well as other CMS systems or static HTML websites if required. Our WordPress developer would look at your existing website architecture and identify any outstanding issues to ensure these are resolved once the website has been migrated over. This can be a simple process for small websites or a complicated process for large websites with advanced functionality. We would ensure the migration was possible before starting the project.

Page builders such as the Elementor plugin, WPBakery plugin and DIVI allow WordPress websites to be managed and built much easier and quicker than by coding alone.  Elementor & WPBakery come with many elements & functionality such as icon boxes, banners and image galleries that resize to mobile, tablet and desktop devices. Our WordPress developers ensure they are installed and optimised effectively to prevent your website slowing down. We do this by only loading CSS and JS files from the Elementor and WPBakery plugins that are required on the web page loaded by your website visitor and disable the files that aren't required. This reduces the total web pages size and therefore reduces the amount of time required to load your WordPress pages and posts.

We design and develop all WordPress websites with SEO in mind and install the best WordPress SEO plugins. This starts with the structure of your website by creating pages that target your audience on Google.
