Your WordPress blog is like your home online. You must take care of it to prevent unauthorized access and other security attacks. Failure to do so can lead to the downfall of your blog as whoever gets access to it or its code may control it and do whatever they want.
As a blog owner, you must learn about the security threats that you may face on your WordPress blog. There are several of them so you must always be on the look-out and do everything you can to prevent your site from being a victim of an attack.
Shared hosting is common nowadays. You share the hosting server with other users, making it possible for hackers to use any unsecured connection within the shared network, leaving your blog vulnerable to security problems. Consider going for one that is not shared or at least ensure that the shared server has strong security protection.
Hackers who successfully gain access to your code or account may also cause users to be redirected to other sites when accessing your blog. This can be a huge issue as your audience will not be able to access your blog and they might get tired trying if they cannot reach it.
