Most websites get hacking attempts every day, which tend to fail, however, it is quite easy to be a victim of hacking. 100% security doesn’t exist, however, there are ways to make it much harder for hackers, and to ensure that you backup your site so that if your website is damaged you can get it back to a working state more easily.
