Help! I was already hacked. What should I do?

WPMU DEV’s expert support can restore and clean up your site after it’s been hacked for free. If you have a backup, we’ll minimize your downtime by activating the most recent clean version of your site. Our experts will then scan your site with Defender to find and fix known vulnerabilities, permanently remove the malicious code, and set up this firewall of cyber muscle.

How exactly does Defender Pro protect my sites?

In many different ways! Features like Defender Pro’s firewall, blocklists, and WPMU DEV’s hosted WAF (Web Application firewall) will ensure threats are detected and blocked before they reach your sites. Scheduled malware and site scans will identify and resolve further threats and vulnerabilities. Also, instant email notifications and alerts will guarantee that you’re always kept in the loop and able to act fast. Then you have Defender Pro’s security recommendations which will make sure your sites are following best security practices. To top it all off, advanced tools like Security Headers, Login Masking, and 2FA can add an extra layer of security for ultimate peace of mind. And there’s a whole lot more where that came from!

What does Defender Pro give me vs. Defender Free?

There are a number of advanced features you won’t find with the free version, including: Audit Logging (A log of recorded events to help trace unwanted behavior on a site) and Blocklist Monitor (Check Google’s blocklist to make sure your site hasn’t been flagged). Also, since Defender Pro is also only available with a WPMU DEV membership plan, by default you’re getting automatic access to our entire suite of performance, security, backup, and white labeling tools - not to mention 24/7/365 expert support (including live chat).

What if I just want Defender Pro? Can I get it on its own?

It’s kind of a package deal around here (in a good way!). Every WPMU DEV plan comes with a number of pro plugins (including Defender Pro) to help optimize performance, security, updates, backups, white labeling, and more. We’ve ensured our lowest members plan is incredibly affordable and on-par with the normal cost of a pro WordPress plugin. It’s also completely up to you if you want to activate or utilize our other pro plugins and The Hub - think of them as bonus tools that are there if you need them.

Trial & Membership

Why do I need to add a credit card for the free trial? What if I forget to cancel?

First of all, we offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you’re covered in that respect. If you’re loving the service and want to stick around after the trial, we’ll use the card you have on file for payment processing… you wouldn’t want to lose the services after all.

But equally, if you want to cancel at any time then just visit ‘My Account’ – it’s super easy.

If it renews and you intended to cancel, no problem! We totally understand. Just contact us within 30 days of your first payment and we will provide a refund, no questions asked – except we’ll likely ask how we can improve to keep you around next time. ;)

How do I know which WPMU DEV plan is right for me?

We offer a number of different membership plans catering to businesses and freelancers of all levels. The best course of action would be to check out our pricing page. Here you’ll find a breakdown of each plan, what features and add-ons are included, how many sites you can connect, limitations versus other plans, and more. Our helpful sales team will also be on hand to assist you if you have any questions or if you’re having trouble deciding.

Do you have a money-back guarantee?

Absolutely, if you're not happy at all in any way we’ll refund your most recent payment absolutely no questions asked (well, ok we will ask you how we can improve or if we did anything wrong so we can get better, but you are absolutely free to leave without an explanation and we’ll refund you the lot!)

Have more questions?

Contact us and we’ll be happy to answer any additional questions!
