It all depends on a few factors. Specifically:

  • What platform is your website built on (WordPress or something else)
  • How likely your website is to be the target of an attack
  • How important is it that your website be accessible

If you have a WordPress hobby blog that’s just for friends and family, paying extra to keep your blog safe probably isn’t a priority. However, if you have a business website that you need up-and-running in order to sell your business, keeping your website safe from hackers is probably a big one.
