    I am using hostgator reseller account.lately my clients website was hit with malwares,iframes,blacklisted,..i am wasting my time while they clean it.

    i will start using your plugin.just want to know few things:
    1-if i press one click secure button and in the future i remove or delete your plugin will the site work?

    2-what files i can backup before using your plugin just in case.

    3-does it stop malwares going to the sites?

    4-what other security measures do you recommend payed or free apart from pc being clean strong password,...

  2. 1.) everything in one-click can be reversed by disabling or uninstalling the plugin

    2.) backup the database, wp-config.php and .htaccess. These are the only items the plugin would touch.

    3.) Depending on how it is inserted, yes. It can't stop everything (no plugin can) but it will do a darn good job of preventing both and helping you find what it can't prevent

    4.) That's a tough one. The most important is make sure everything is up do date and that you remove anything you don't need. After that, and a strong security plugin like Better WP Security, vigilance is your best defense. Nothing can stop all attacks so planning, protecting, and being able to clean quickly is the most solid strategy to keeping your site clean.
