Theft and lose are in quotes above to indicate that not everyone will agree with the terminology and really those words were chosen to get the point across.

You can use them in conjunction, the warning from BruteProtect means that if you are using WordFence to block brute force logins, BP's database of attacking IPs isn't getting updated. So you can either disable WF's brute force protection and let BP handle that or just do nothing and rely on other users to submit updated attacking data to BP. Personally, I use WF to monitor for file changes and leave all brute force monitoring/prevention to BP so they get the data they need. But there's nothing wrong with doing it the other way.

@Wold Yes, absolutely. You need to give them SFTP or Shell access and they go through and fix things. Their monitoring service tests the public-facing site to see if it has been hacked to present malware or defaced. Optionally, you can also provide server access and their tools will scan for core file changes and alert you when something gets altered that shouldn't be.

That's not been my experience. I have a dedicated server with DH and I've always had above-average response and assistance when I've contacted them.

Rolling your own theme is usually pretty secure (unless you do something you shouldn't) because you are doing less than what off-the-shelf themes are doing. When you roll your own, you tend to only include as much functionality as you need to get the job done. An off-the-shelf theme has to bundle more features in order to be a one-size-fits-all solution and that can be where the problems start.

Pretty sure Dreamhost has migrated all of the shared servers off Debian and onto Ubuntu at this point. Are you running a VPS or Private server? If so, those tend to lag behind in terms of patches and upgrades but hollering at DH support can work wonders...

comment Using WordPress account on a domain?
@Rockett Specifically look into the Jetpack plugin for this purpose. William is mostly correct that self-hosted WordPress is completely independent from wordpress.com but you can link them together in certain ways via Jetpack.
