I have touted for years the benefits of leveraging a cloud security solution for your website, especially your WordPress blog and spoke to the benefits of having an off site cloud hosting solution doing the monitoring, security, caching and filtering of resource requests to your hosting provider. This provides the benefit of reducing load and actual resource utilization on your web hosting provider as well as keeps your actual WordPress site running more optimally as you don’t have to have the overhead of bloated PHP plugins which do function well but add a lot of resource utilization overhead, especially if you are using a shared hosting plan.
This simple image shows you the benefits all summed up of leveraging a service like CloudLayar.
Just run their attack tool to see if your website is vulnerable and if it comes back vulnerable, you should consider signing up for a free protection plan and get at least some of the benefits of a free plan. Now no WordPress security plugin will actually protect your site from a DDOS attack, they will only protect you from XSS and malicious injections or hacks against your website, for true DDOS protection you will need a premium plan from a cloud security service like CloudLayar which can prevent a flood of malicious traffic from overwhelming your site and making it unavailable to others.
Protecting your site with CloudLayar is simple, all you do is sign up for the free plan or premium plan if you need more advanced protection and update your DNS Zones to route traffic to the CloudLayar servers so that CloudLayar can handle all incoming traffic and inspect it before routing it back to your hosting provider IP. You can see the CloudLayar HowTo Guide on how to setup CloudLayar for your website.
I suggest you sign up for free website protection with CloudLayar and give it a chance to see at least how it’s website firewall can help protect your site from malicious attacks, cross site scripting attempts and other attempts to compromise your site or cause an outage. Don’t worry about having to enter your credit card information, even though it asks you to select credit card from button list for free plan it won’t ask you for your credit card number when you register.
