Secure Website Development

Whether you are looking to develop a one-page portfolio site, a ground-breaking blog site, or a state-of-the-art e-commerce web app it’s to have a strategy for security.

Security From The Start

There is no doubt that website security can be a complex (or even confusing) topic in an ever-evolving landscape. At Willhouse, we understand where threats come from, and what to do to harden your web site or application against the most common attacks.

A security-first approach is not only a recipe for keeping your site secure. That is why we offer our Member Maintenace plans. Our low-cost plans keep your site up-to-date with the latest security patches and site monitoring. And, if your site becomes compromised, we are on hand to clean out infections quickly and safely.

GDPR Compliance

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. Although it mostly targets websites in the EU, any website that plans to collect data from the EU needs to be aware of this important regulation. All our websites can be GDPR compliant if and when necessary. We educate our clients when information could be at risk and what to do about it.

WordPress Security

We love WordPress. It’s a powerhouse piece of software magic that runs millions of websites. However, it can also be vulnerable to attack. We can help ensure that your WordPress website stays healthy and worry-free.

Our Member Maintenance plans employ our security-first approach to your site by site up-time monitoring, weekly back ups and keeping your the software up-to-date. Our plans help dozens of websites stay the course.
