I’m wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same level of difficulty with Wordpress sites constantly being hacked. I’ve installed a number of protection mechanisms, and they are successfully keeping the hackers out, but there are so many intrusion attempts that it eventually overloads the server & causes a restart along with some downtime. The performance of the sites are also affected. There doesn’t seem to be any reason why some sites are being hit daily while others are ignored, but I’m feeling a lot of pressure at my company to shop for a new webhost. Until now I’ve maintained the argument that this is primarily a Wordpress issue, but I’m started to believe that there has to be another host out there that does a better job at keeping this stuff in check. It is really nonstop. I tried to install Cloudflare, but can’t get past the need to add ‘www’ to the domain - it breaks my site every time, and support hasn’t really been able to help all that much. Add this to the email reliability issues & it’s becoming harder to argue against jumping ship.
Anyone else ready to leave Dreamhost because of these issues?
