One of the biggest issues with managing a website is security; it is always a battle to make sure your data and web presence is safe.  Nucleus has deployed multiple layers of security to help defend your website from attack.

  • Ability to Install Let’s Encrypt SSL Certificates on your website AND webmail for free
  • Ability to use CloudFlare CDN and Protection for free
  • Nucleus offers a WordPress monitoring service for $5/month
    • This service includes the installation of the free WordPress plugin called WordFence. The WordPress Wordfence security plugin provides free enterprise-class WordPress security, protecting your website from hacks and malware. WordFence has the option of alerting you when any of your WordPress Themes, Plug-ins, Translations, or the WordPress Core files themselves need to be updated. Keeping your themes, plugins and core WordPress files updated reduces the risk of hacking to your WordPress website. Although this helps protect your WordPress site, it cannot be 100% guaranteed that your site will not be hacked or become compromised.
    • The WordPress Monitoring/Update Service only covers the updating of the WordPress Core files, themes, plugins, and translations for your WordPress website. It does not include updating of regular content that may be added to the website itself. These type of updates would be charged under our usual rate of $100.00/hour + tax.
