    Recover from a WordPress Malware Hacking Attack by Switching Web Hosts


    (Page 1 of 4 )

    There is nothing worse than having your WordPress website get hacked and infected with malware. Much worse is that it may not be your fault, but your web hosting company. Either way, the damage is done. But what can you do? Keep reading.

    For example, recently there was an exploit on a web hosting server affecting all sites under it (source: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2009/06/08/webhost_attack/ ). The damage was extensive; most of the sites were paralyzed; and even after a full day, the web hosting company did not even recover its normal operations.

    In short, if something like this happens to you, it sounds like your web hosting company is dead, and so is your website. For those that experience this type of problem, this article is for you.

    This article will cover all the details for how to recover your WordPress website and get back to normal operation again by switching your web host. This could be a complicated procedure, especially if you are not prepared for this type of event. Of course, it is rare that a web hosting server gets hacked, but it happens.

    There are a lot of visitors that come to your website because they need information, and when they find that they can't get to it because it's down, it is a frustrating event for both you and your readers. In addition, if you do not act as early as possible, you can lose a substantial amount of income, which could be in the form of sales, conversions or Google AdSense revenue.

    I think the most serious problem with having your website get hacked is if Google removes your entire website from the search results to keep other users from getting infected. By quickly making a move to switch web hosts, you can avoid this event, and this is to your advantage.
