wordfence-logo-64x64Wordfence is a security plugin that will protect your WordPress website against hacks, cyber attacks, and online security threats. They offer both a free plugin and a $39 per year premium version. Both options continually scan your site for known malware, bad URLs, outdated themes and plugin files, backdoors and hackers, fake google bots and more. The premium version also offers country blocking, where you can choose in your account settings to block entire countries from accessing your site and login form. This is especially useful for those of you whose customers are US or US and Canada only, as all others can be manually blocked which will prevent a multitude of potential content theft, attacks and other malicious activity from those regions.

If you are a P2 Graphic Design client and would like us to add Wordfence to your website, please contact us. We encourage you to learn more by visiting the Wordfence website here.

scam company, isdn, internet domain name servicesInternet Domain Name Services, also known as iDNS, sends out letters that look like a bill for domain registration.  They send these letters to domain name owners who’s domain names are going to expire, six months or more before the actual expiration date.

While it may not be illegal, it appears their intention is to mislead domain name owners into thinking it’s a bill that must be paid in order to retain the rights to their domain name.  Except, they are not the domain name company of record.  Their intention is to prey on people don’t know who their domain registration company is.  Further, they charge $45 for one year of domain hosting!   Most reputable companies charge about $10 to $15/year for the same service.  View actual letter here.

So, if you receive a notice in the mail from iDNS that looks like a bill, scrutinize it carefully.  Most likely, it’s just another scam from iDNS.  We received two of them in the same month.  Fortunately we recognized the deception right away.  Hopefully, you will too!
