If you’re just starting with WordPress, you can easily get lost in all the available information.
To keep it simple and avoid overwhelming you with more information, here’s a brief guide on where to start with your WordPress website.
What is a theme?
A theme is the styling or appearance of your website. It determines how your pages look, the top and bottom of your website, and the appearance of your sidebar.
Both the layout and colors are determined by a theme.
You can download free plugins from WordPress.org.
What is a plugin?
A plugin is an add-on that you can “plug into” your website. The type of add-on depends on the plugin; for example, there are plugins for website translation, website security, displaying images, creating photo albums, and more.
Be careful, though, as plugins can slow down your website and may pose security risks. Don’t just install any plugin you come across.
For the security of your WordPress website, whether big or small, it’s best to turn to WPbeveiligen.
With over 10 years of WordPress experience, hosting experience, and expertise in development, programming, and security, WPbeveiligen is the right choice.
Why is security necessary?
WordPress is open-source and freely available for everyone worldwide. As WordPress is a popular platform for building websites, many malicious hackers target its potential vulnerabilities and widespread use. When a hacker finds a vulnerability, they can infect thousands of websites with malware within hours. Malware is harmful to your website’s reputation, affecting both visitors and your ranking in Google.
