Join Morten Rand-Hendriksen for an in-depth discussion in this video Securing your site and getting visitors, part of WordPress DIY: Restaurant Website.
- We are now on the last lap…and at the home stretch of our site build…and the only thing that's left…is to make sure that your site is secure…and then take it live on the web.…The sad reality of our times is that when you place…a site on the web, people will at some point…try to do something bad to your site.…That might be anything from leaving a bad comment…to leaving a comment full of spam links,…to trying to gain access to the back end of your site,…or trying to take your site down…through a distributed denial of service attack.…Now, you can protect yourself from most of these…either using plugins or by setting up your site…in a certain way.…
You will have noticed as we were creating the menu items…for our site that I turned off comments…on all my menu items.…As a restaurant, I would strongly recommend you do this…because you can imagine if someone goes to your restaurant…and buys the Parmesan Deviled Eggs,…and then they are not happy with them,…they go back to the website and they can leave a comment?…They probably will and that might not be the best thing.…
