Keeping your website or blog safe and secure from those that would mess with it can be a very big challenge. By far the easiest way to to protect your website from bad actors is to block the IP address they are attempting to access your website from. In this video tutorial, Josh from HostGator (they host this blog) walks you through the steps of securing your website by blocking an IP address from accessing your website. You will learn:
- How to locate the IP Blocker section in cPanel
- How to add an IP Address to the IP Blocker
- How to confirm that the IP Address was successfully added
- How to locate where the block is located on your website
Ready To Start Your Blog?
One of the most common complaint (or excuse) I hear from potential new bloggers is they don’t know how to install WordPress. Terms like FTP and CPanel are like a foreign language and setting up a database might as well be setting up the space shuttle for a launch.
Because of the technology barrier, many would be bloggers never start their blog. If you’re in this situation, then you’ll be happy to know about my free WordPress installation service.
It’s really simple. I will install and set up a WordPress blog for you at no cost to you. Not only that, I will also install for free the Top 5 WordPress plugins from the video so you can get your blog started on the right foot.
What’s The Catch?
There is no catch. This program is being sponsored by HostGator. They are my official web host and host all my blogs. They are the ones paying me to do this. If you were to pay someone to install WordPress and the plugins for you, it would cost you at least $100.
To get the free WordPress installation service, all you have to do is order a web hosting plan from HostGator. Then forward me the login information to johnchow [at] johnchow.com and I’ll install WordPress for you. Afterwards, I’ll email you back the login information for your new WordPress blog and you can start blogging!
