WordPress Performance Techniques We Implement On Your Site
This is about making your WordPress Website fast to load so your visitors don't leave before they see your information.
There is a lot of techie stuff described below and we apologise. Sometimes, there just isn't any way round it but if we are face to face with you we can show you what we do to help you understand if that's what you want. Alternatively, you can just leave us to do it.
Caching creates and really speedy load time which is something the search engines love, which means it can help your SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and also to increase conversions.
We add in a crawler which stimulates a visit to preload the cache, which means the indexing of your websites by the search engines is improved.
By implementing a preload of the URL's in your XML Sitemap (which we will generate if you don't have one already) we can ensure that your site's cache is always warm. This also integrates automatic detection of the SEO plugin we will install for you which is (Yoast SEO).
This helps the work of the browser (GZIP Compression, expires, headers, etage) to optimise the rendering or web browsers and also to save bandwidth.
This regular clean up of your database to remove bloat and reduce its size really boosts the performance of your website.
Remove Query Strings From Static Resources
By removing the query strings from the CSS/JS files, cache busting is retained by encoding the version number into the URL. Again it's all about speed and performance.
By loading images only as the visitor to your website scrolls down the page, we can improve the load time of the page. This is a technique used by major sites such as YouTube and Facebook and we are implementing this onto your website.
We implement a system which detects if visitors to your website are using a mobile and then optimises the features you offer to enhance their experience.
Automatic optimisation and compression of images to help keep your website fast (up to 50 images per month).
WordPress Security Techniques We Implement On Your Site
This is about preventing hacks, security breaches and malware infections!
WordPress Brute Force Protection
Limit the number of failed login attempts allowed per user with WordPress brute force protection. If someone is trying to guess your password, they'll get locked out after a few attempts.
File Change Detection
If someone manages to get into your site, they'll probably add, remove or change a file. Get email alerts showing any recent file changes so you know if you've been hacked.
If a bot is scanning your site for vulnerabilities, it will generate a lot of 404 errors. iThemes Security will lock out that IP after the limit you set (20 errors in 5 minutes by default).
Strong Password Enforcement
Set which level of users on your site (admins, editors, users, etc.) need to have strong passwords. Strong password enforcement is one of the best ways to lock down WordPress.
Lock Out Bad Users
Keep bad users away from your site if they have too many failed login attempts, if they generate too many 404 errors, or if they're on a bot blacklist.
Complete backups and sent to off-site storage destinations.
Total Site Clones
We go way beyond backing up the files and databases and carry out total site clones. This means there is a complete copy of your website which can be reinstated should the worst happen.
