Many of us don’t worry about the security of our real estate WordPress websites until it’s too late. Security, backups and website recovery are fairly often an afterthought.

Though WordPress is very much secure by itself, but there is never too much ascertainable. Security should be the top priority for any real estate website developer. Due to the lack of security, any website can be hacked, private information can be stolen, and countless hours of hard work can be spent to repair that all.

The number of potential security vulnerabilities faced by WordPress real estate websites is actually much greater than most people realize. Typically we think of the obvious things like using strong passwords and keeping WordPress core files up to date. Truth be told, those items cover only a small percentage of the total vulnerabilities.

Real estate website security can be presented within the following levels:

1 Outer network level (outside of the server – it may be proxy, software/hardware firewalls)

2 Hosting level (it includes server level and a part of networking)

3 Website application level (WordPress real estate website)

4 Client level (computer’s security, safe network environment and common-sense security measures)

Because of this, have an extra layer of security for your site is not a bad idea. Here are some of the best WordPress security plugins to help you protect your site:

– Wordfence

– iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security)

– Sucuri Security

– BulletProof Security
