    Really good video Kori. I see you are using Sucuri. As you may know im a newbee! And i want to install a plugin or secure my WP site. I have been recommened Hide My WP. How would you compare "Sucuri" to "Hide my WP"? Which is the better? 😉

    Hi, Kori I have a question about websites that have been hacked.  Can a website that shows "this site may have be hacked" in the Google serps be reused if you purchased the domain and put it on brand new hosting?  With brand new fresh install of wordpress?

    I'm so confused right now. I downloaded an ithemes security plugin a few days ago and noticed file changes are happening every day, even on days I haven't even logged in and visited my site. I assumed I'd been hacked, but when I run a sucuri scan it says everything looks good and there's no malicious viruses and everything is working good.

    However just today I can no longer see the changelog that was showing me what files had been added or changed, now I'm just automatically directed to a 404 page not found!!!! Do you know what's going on? and how I can fix it?

    Hi Kory – I have learned a great deal from your videos – Thank you for doing them!! I know that you use WPEngine for your hosting.

    If I went with them as my host – would I be in a shared hosting plan or what? Do they have their own servers or are they using other providers for their servers.

    Thanks again!

    You mentioned a robot trying to brute force into a wp site and recommended Limit Login but is it possible to nip it in the bud and change the urls so that the robots can't find them?

    For example, I was looking at maybe hiding the urls or changing them with the Hide My Wp plugin but I don't know if that would create all kinds of chaos with other plugins or assets.

    This is the plugin: https://codecanyon.net/item/hide-my-wp-amazing-security-plugin-for-wordpress/4177158

    Thanks, Kori! 😀
