Guest Posters on LHH

Exiting news!

We have lined up 2 guest posters to write on our blog and we can’t wait for you to read them.

Would you like to join them, do you have something you’d like to write for us as well?

We are looking for guest posters to write articles on our blog and bring attention to subjects that are interesting, informative or maybe even just a good laugh. If you think that you can write an article that we would love to read and share then please fill in the form below and we’ll let you know how it would fit in.

It can be about business, blogging, technology, or anything you would like to get some exposure for. Maybe you’re a “Mummy or lifestyle Blogger” and want to write a piece about your online life. Maybe you’ve worked in IT or tech support and have some funny customer support stories to tell, or perhaps you are a business consultant or work in PR and have some great tips to share.

Maybe you are a LHH/LHD client and would love to spread the word about what you do. Perhaps you run a not for profit organisation and want to spread the word?

Guest posting can be a great way to increase your exposure!

If you’d like to post for us fill in the form below and we will let you know how we think you could fit in.

For those who write we will happily link back to your website, write a mini profile about you (and business if you have one) and shout out your post to Social Media including Facebook and Twitter.

Guest posting is for anyone, not just our clients so send us your ideas!

We look forward to hearing from you all.

Lets talk Security – is your website safe?

We have been doing a lot of writing lately about site protection and security and for good reason. Increasingly we are being contacted by people who are concerned that their site has been compromised and asking us if we can look into it for them. We are being contacted by a few clients but the majority are non LHH/LHD clients. Thankfully we have been able to help them secure their sites but it can be a long, tedious and expensive process so we have come up with an exciting solution.

If you own a website of any kind then you need to think about the security of yourself and those that visit your website. As we recently posted whatever the hack and its effect, it’s a scary time and heart in your mouth scenario.

So you are thinking that it can’t happen to you. Think that your website cant be hacked, then think again. It is highly likely that your website has been hacked or at the very least it is able to be compromised.  I am sure that you have Security on your home/business pc, so why not have it on your website, afterall your website is what potential clients will see and take a first impression from..

Speak to Michelle from Little Hero Hosting about Sucuri. It is a monitoring service which reports on you website about changes to DNS, whois, SSL and any website changes as well as malicious coding which could leave your site compromised or exposed.

Can you really afford not to be monitored, I’m not taking the risk!

Mark Bradbrook, Owner of My IT Guy Australia with over 20 years in the IT industry with an IT Security Focus.

Little Hero Hosting has partnered up with Sucuri to give site owners peace of mind, for a small amount per year your site can be monitored and any security threats fixed without you having to worry about anything.

Tina from www.tinagray.me recently found herself with a hack on not 1 but 2 of her sites. The first we were able to clean manually but the second we couldn’t find the malicious coding anywhere. We set Tina up with one of our security plans and the issue was resolved in less than half an hour!

This is what Tina recently had to say:

You know how TGDM was hacked the other week? And the lovely Michelle from Little Hero Hosting fixed it all up for me while I was in the corner rocking in a foetal position?

Well she has now partnered up with Sucuri to offer bloggers affordable security scanning and I signed up. What this means is that TGDM gets scanned every three hours for any malware. It doesn’t mean that my blog will never get infected again. But it DOES mean that if any malicious code is found, it will be removed quickly without it compromising my files and plugins.

Definitely worth it, I think. Especially since my blog IS my business.

With LHH & Sucuri your site is scanned every 3 hours and checked for malicious code, if a threat is found the malicious code is removed quickly and safely. If your site is clean fantastic, we will then continue to monitor your site with scheduled scans are run every 3 hours and if any compromise is found we will remove the offending code and clean your site.

Security scanning is available for any site, a blog, shopping cart, database, CMS. If your site uses  HTML, CSS, PHP, WordPress, Joomla then it can be scanned and cleared.

After my blog was compromised last year I was very worried about unauthorised changes and/or being hacked again, the thought of losing all I worked so hard for these past 2,5 years was on my mind all the time. The internet can be a scary thing and sadly there are many nasty people out there who enjoy ruining other people’s hard work. I had no idea what to look for and even though I try to take all the necessary precautions you never know what goes behind the scenes.
When I head about Little Hero Hosting and Sucuri I straight away liked it, knowing my website is being checked every 3 hours is very reassuring. It is a worry off my mind knowing Sucuri picks up on any little thing that shouldn’t be there. Sucuri is very affordable, imagine what it would cost you to get help from an expert if your website was hacked. It could take hours, even days for it to be repaired (if at all) and that would mean a costly bill. I’d rather pay a few dollars every month and not have to worry at all. – Simone - Hip Little One
