I came across an interesting article today at EfficientWP about WordPress Monthly Maintenance. They talk about the three options people have with maintaining a (WordPress) website: do nothing, hire someone, DIY. I just want to talk a bit about each of those and how I can help you with the maintenance dilemma!

This is my blog where I will occasionally post some tips for website maintenance/development and updates on my recent open source projects.
2017. Wow. The WWW has come a long way. Remember how SSL certificates used to cost money? Yep, you can now get them for free! But even if you couldn’t…you should still be using HTTPS. Here’s why!
Whilst developing websites for users and recommending cPanel hosts I realised that it can be a bit of a pain to have to manage email accounts with cPanel. I decided to look for a basic yet functional cPanel Email Manager that I can give to clients so that they can manage their cPanel email accounts with ease! Even though I did find some, they either made things overly complicated or just weren’t good enough…so I decided to make my own cPanel Email Manager, and instead of doing it as a web application I opted to create a JavaFX application for it!
I have been looking around for a good yet simple customer relationship manager to use and couldn’t find what I was looking for. I wanted a CRM where I could add clients, assign projects to those clients and then also create invoices which can optionally be assigned to a specific project. I also wanted clients to be able to pay invoices through the web application securely. Oh well, if you can’t find it, so why not make it?
So as we know, I love using WordPress! But as with all software, you need to ensure it is secure! In this post I will go over how to secure a WordPress site properly! I will go over ways you can secure your on site pages such as your admin dashboard and also ways you can secure your server if you are using a VPS or Dedicated server.
