    I would personally like to say thank you to Word Fence for creating this amazing plugin.

    My story: I have been doing WordPress websites for as long as I can remember. I have had my hosting account and domain registrar for over 10 years. Not once did I EVER have any issues with hackers, malicous content being put on my websites, people cracking my passwords, or anything else. Then suddenly at the start of this month, September, I got a notification email from my host that I was hacked.

    I hired a guy to fix it for me and he did so. But, I only paid him to clean up the 3 files that my host mentioned. I honestly never imagined it could be worse than that.

    I was wrong. I was hacked again a few days later by the same person that hacked me the first time. I hired the guy again, this time to do everything he needed to do in order to clean the entire website, rid it of any malware, scripts, viruses and put up a firewall for me. In all, he found over 1000 walmare, viruses, scripts, etc. I am not naive by any means. I know that we live in an unsafe world, but I never in a million years thought that IF it did happen to me, it would be THIS bad.

    I did a ton of research on the best security plugins and I found Wordfence. My guy also recommended it to me before I even mentioned anything to him lol. I installed it, but to be honest, there is a learning curve. If you are going to use it and you are not sure how, hire someone to set everything up because it will be worth it.

    I honestly feel like since I have this new guy that WORKS for a web security company AND I have wordfence, that I have a literal fence around my entire network. After its installed and set up, it still takes some time to get used to. But, in my personal situation, there is really not a whole lot the Admin needs to be taught. That is because a lot of the settings are set it and forget it or your web security guy can figure out things for you.

    Anyway. I just wanted to say thanks. Thus far, its working VERY well and I am VERY happy. The only complaint I have is that I would like to get premium, but for 6 websites its expensive. So unfortunately I will just stick with the free version rather than the premium version for all 6 of my websites.

    Thanks for the kind words! We’re not allowed to discuss premium pricing, etc on wordpress.org but if you want to reach out at billing@wordfence.com I’d be happy to share what deep discounts you get for getting 6 licenses at one time.
