eGuitar Plans' Site Is Back To Business As Usual

I hope! I spent the last couple of days working with my host provider, IX Web Hosting and my shopping cart solution, FDHQ to get my site back on track. The problem was a hacker had compromised my blog by adding in malware to the blog's pages. The hack was discovered immediately and Google added the warning notice to my site. After working with my host provider, the entire blog was removed and security was strengthened. Then, Google inspected my site and removed the warning. Finally, my shopping cart was replaced with the latest version even though its security was never compromised by the hacker.

To prevent this problem from happening again, I've decided to replace my Wordpress blog with Google's Blogger. This means my blog will be hosted by Google rather than the server where my site is located. The only disadvantage is that my archive of past blog posts will no longer be available. That's okay by me. After all, I'd rather have the security of an offsite blog instead of a hacked archive!
