The 5 Most Securely Managed WordPress Hosting Services of 2017

Over the past few years, hackers have begun to target WordPress websites. This is in part due to the platform’s booming popularity amongst both amateur and professional online services, but the poor security features WordPress has to offer are also partially to blame. Websites can be accessed through brute force, guessing passwords, or targeting one of the platform’s many vulnerable plugins.
 
 
 
Recently, WordPress has been working to address the problem for its customers. In May the company announced that its VIP hosting services are now certified under Privacy Shield in the US and the European Union. WordPress also releases regular security updates that address weaknesses in the software, but these do not offer comprehensive protection. One of the best ways that you can protect your website from attacks is by utilizing a specialized managed hosting service. There are countless managed hosting services for WordPress, and it can be difficult to decide which one to use for your website.
