I've got many admin managing my site, with more users signing in comes greater vulnerability. What does this bundle offer to combat this?
Quite a few things in fact. Firstly depending on your level of trust you can allow your site contributors and admin to have the usual permission, or you can apply further restrictions to it through the Admin Tools plugin.
You can also restrict the access that front-end users have to your site content depending on their user role or depending on whether they have paid for access through the Site Content Restriction plugin.
But before users even get a chance to get onto your site and start making harmful changes filter out malicious users attempting to register through the Email Domain Blacklist plugin.
Lastly if you’re unfamiliar with Two Factor Authentication (2FA) by now it’s REALLY time that you educate yourself. Chances are very high that you use it on a daily basis. It’s that extra step that banks use by sending you a code by text to confirm large online transactions, or some social media sites will use by emailing you a confirm sign in button to check that it is you who’s attempting to log in. Our Secure Login and 2FA plugin will allow you to employ the same Security Measure for signing into your site, ensuring that other site Admin with weak passwords will need to go through the Google Authenticator app installed on their phone, to sign into the site back-end.
Will installing these plugins boost my site's trust rating?
Trust rating is a grossly unconsidered factor for your website’s ranking as well as the chance that it will end up caught by a potential visitor’s anti-virus software.
You may not even be aware of what influences your trust rating… Well here are a few things….
Having a decent SSL certificate and HTTPS status. If you don’t have a proper SSL certificate installed on your site you won’t have the Locked Padlock in the search / address bar. This is important to keep in mind if your site is going to be accepting payments from anyone as it tells the visitor’s browser that the site is encrypted. Without encryption your payment information can be read by the site owner which isn’t good.
Not having your email wind up in recipient’s junk mail. Some poorly designed plugins will send emails from your website to your recipients. There is a lot of room for you to design an email that will for some reason (which you’ll probably be unconscious of) set off the recipient’s spam filter and put the email in Junk. Sin of sins. Well it gets worse. Email clients that see you are sending many emails that are going straight to junk associate the sender as a source of spam, a label that you don’t want further increasing your chances of ending up in junk or on an email domain blacklist much like ours. This can be avoided by passing your emails through an SMTP service. Don’t think we’re providing the tools to spam though, SMTP service providers will block actual spam and blacklist the IP address sending it.
Keeping your site safe. You may think that keeping a good online reputation and trust rating all has to do with what YOU do with your site. But it’s also about how you protect yourself. If you allow hackers, or malicious users in they tend to have a purpose, be it placing lots of ads on your site to make money for themselves or something more malicious like stealing your visitors information. Either way utilizing Two Factor Authentication and limiting visitors access on the back-end of the site can help you to avoid these unwanted intrusions and help to keep your website in high regard.
