  • This is such a helpful list! I have some of these already active on my blog (love Yoast!). My blog is in WP, but our website is sorely outdated (Dreamweaver). Next week, we’re relaunching our entire website, blog included, as a WP site. I’m looking forward to updating the blog with a few of these!

    Question: Will a plugin (such as VaultPress) apply to the entire site, or just the blog portion? We’ll have a full-blown website with a WooCommerce store and blog.

    • Hello John,

      Thanks for your kind words.

      John, answer to your question is YES, the VaultPress apply to the entire site but again here is a little twist.

      1. Say, if your mail site like and your blog address is and both of them have WordPress install. In such a case, you require two VaultPress installation.
      2. If your site is and your blog is (in the same directory), then with single VaultPress installation, the entire website got covered.
      Further, if you like to have more support on this, then will suggest you to share your website URL directly at our email address and I will be happy to guide you more.
      All The Best,

  • Oh my goodness I don’t know what I’d do without Vaultpress. I had a scare a little while back when my blog went down and I thought I got hacked and was so scared I was going to lose everything. After that, I was happy to pay the $5 a month so I could rest easy at night. I haven’t tried Optin Monster yet, but have heard such great things about it and plan on purchasing it in a month or so. What a great list
