Question

Can I have Wordpress site isolation to prevent sites being compromised?

Hi,

I currently use another hosting service (unlimitewebhosting) to host my Wordpress sites (around 8 currently).

From time to time they the Wordpress sites have been compromised and whilst I have tried to stop this happening, I am losing the battle. The issue is that once one of the sites in the shared hosting is compromised, all the others are being compromised too.

Is there a way of setting up Wordpress in an iscolated manner on Digital Ocean so that one site being compromised won’t affect all the others?

Is there anything that DO can do to help prevent the sites being compromised?

Thanks

I really like the idea of serverpilot…it seems like a great solution. As suggested, I will try it out

The issue is that once one of the sites in the shared hosting is compromised, all the others are being compromised too Then it’s not wordpress that was compromised but your server. If you host your wordpress sites on digitalocean then I recommend to sign up for a free plan with serverpilot (https://serverpilot.io). They will take care of your droplets security (for free) while you can focus on your business.
