Need a Package where you Manage your WordPress Yourself?
You will find the answers to the most popular questions in the frequently asked questions. Don’t hesitate to contact us if your question is not there, or if you need more information.
Why do I need the WordPress hosting package?
Punctual maintenance of a WordPress site represents difficult and even painful procedures for the majority of site owners. However, these procedures are essential to ensure the effectiveness and proper functioning of your platform in the long term.
Neglecting the maintenance of your WordPress can have strong impacts on your site and make it vulnerable to different types of attacks.
In addition to exposing your platform, data and content, a WordPress site that is not optimized becomes heavier and slower to open. As a result, the SEO of the site could be affected.
This is precisely where the Astral 360 – WordPress package comes to make your life easier. Our-qualified team will perform all administrative tasks related to the maintenance of the various modules and extensions of your site so that you can focus on other tasks.
Should I notify you when there are updates?
Absolutely not !
No need to notify us. As your hosting is turnkey, we take care of checking and updating monthly at the very least. If you receive an email notification regarding a new update to be made, no need to notify us because you know that in the next 30 days at most this update will have been carried out by our team.
Will my site be faster?
Without a doubt !
The installation and use of a powerful image optimization extension will be carried out.
The extension makes it possible to reduce the size of images by more than 50% without altering their appearance. This will, once again, optimize the speed of loading pages on your site and improve your positioning on search engines.
Buffer memory installation
We install a buffer memory extension (caching) in your site to speed up page load times.
Installing multiple buffers will optimize the speed of your site and maintain or improve its SEO on search engines.
Will my WordPress site be more secure?
Relocation of access
The default WordPress administration access page will be moved so that only you can know it. This prevents, among other things, robots from trying to access your site using a hacking method called brute force attack.
Change of main user
Our team also makes sure that the name of the main user is not « admin » and that it is not the first record in the database. Again, for security reasons.
We are also changing the salting of the WordPress configuration file, which strengthens the security aspect of password encryption.
We install protection against robots on all forms of the WordPress site (captcha). This is to reduce or completely eliminate the reception of spam caused by the automated submission of your forms.3
Why should I use CloudFlare?
It is best to point the DNS of your domain to CloudFlare. In this way, you will benefit from a CDN (content delivery network) with Anycast. With the Anycast DNS service, your site will be loaded faster in all countries of the world and will be protected against DDoS attacks.2
Your site will be propelled by more than 194 global data centers (including 6 across Canada) with CloudFlare’s CDN (Content Delivery Network), known for its speed and reliability. You will then benefit free of charge from the advantages and reliability offered by the Anycast DNS network :
- Faster loading of your site and pages.
- More efficient site, in all countries around the world.
- Excellent protection against DDoS attacks.
What type of firewall will be used?
Your site will be protected behind three firewalls (three layers of security) and an intrusion detection system designed to stop hackers before it is too late.
This system analyzes any action carried out on the site in real time. For example, when a file is uploaded or simply when you type the site’s address in the browser search bar. So, as soon as a malicious attempt is detected, it is blocked before even reaching your site.
We are therefore implementing a physical firewall and two software firewalls to block potential threats and ensure the security of your WordPress site.
- A physical firewall with rules created specifically for WordPress sites.
- Two software firewalls: A firewall against brute force attack attempts and optimized safety rules for WordPress sites (CloudFlare).
