Apart from my business website I have two other websites which are to some extent dormant and I do not want to pay a lot of money for hosting them and not fully use them. With Afrihost they may just lie there for about nothing. My present host is Elitehost and they have a package where I may keep them there for R60,00 per month and they merge the two accounts and I think into one cPanel. They say the following: "You will then just need to take extra security pre-cautions and ensure that the sites are always kept updated and have security plugins installed. If a hacker were to compromise one of the sites, they would have access to all the sites"
My question now is how do I go about installing security plugins and keep them up to date. Is this something one can download, install and update regularly?
