Good article. What intrigues me in such articles is that no one ever mentions security and the up keeping of a website, then we wonder how come many WordPress websites are insecure. Of course if we don't educate the users they will never think of it in the first place.

That would take a whole new article to cover properly, especially because these days there's a wide palette of solutions - from free ones such as Wordfence for security and WPRemote for upkeep, to Sucuri Antivirus that's $100 per annum and our very own ManageWP for upkeep.

But yeah, helping users make an informed decision is always a positive thing.

HI Nemanja,

I tend to disagree to that. I mean yes you can write a whole article about that but you can also write a simple paragraph where you explain that hardening and monitoring is needed and just mention a few :)
