You should not be losing too much sleep over the possibility of your website or your blogs getting hacked, being taken over, being destroyed, or being changed.

If you are worried about this kind of thing, there are a few preventative steps you can and should take right now to ensure that your blog is kept safe.

You should avoid shared and cheap hosting, you should install trusted themes and plugins, and finally, you should keep your computer Spyware free.

What do I mean when I say to avoid shared hosting?

Some web hosting companies offer reseller hosting.

This could cause a few problems, because what if this one person sells space to ten people in the same area?

There are a few things some people can do to get access to other folders that do not belong to them simply because they belong to the same reseller.

Get a real web host because it is well worth it to have faster performance and extra security.

Install only themes and plugins that you trust.

Do not install a plugin that came out just yesterday.

Install a plugin or a theme that has real reviews, and just make sure that you are not installing a theme or plugin that contains what’s called Malware.

Most people don’t realize that any theme or plugin can actually delete all the files on your website. It can actually copy your whole website and send it off somewhere else.

You need to trust the plugins and the themes that you are using.

And finally, keep your computer Spyware free.

Install a virus scanner on your local computer, and scan it on a regular basis.

Think about it, if someone has access to your office computer, your desktop computer, and can record every single password you type in, that means just because they have access to your computer, they can now tell what your WordPress login and password are.

The simple preventative measures you can take to avoid your site getting hacked are to avoid cheap hosting, install only trusted themes and plugins, and keep your computer Spyware free.
