Website security is something most people think about after it’s too late. The time to think about security is when setting up the site, not after it’s been attacked.

Ready To Start Your Website?
One of the most common complaint (or excuse) I hear from potential new bloggers and website owners is they don’t know how to install the software. 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.
This technology barrier has now been removed thanks to HostGator’s new 1 Click WordPress Install feature. However, if you still feel a bit antsy about doing the install, then let me do it for you.
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!
