Thank you for taking the time and reminding me I need to do this. As for the out of the box time WordPress adds, I'm afraid I'm not as CMS agnostic as I'd like to be, in the past couple years WordPress dev has been good to me as far as paying the bills. But I will consider your thoughts on this. Thank you
    If you don't mind could you post a link? If like to see the site and I dont think Game would mind in this situation.

    Underscores | A Starter Theme for WordPress

    I didn't find the template itself, but I didn't look that hard either.

    hi

    I like the site..but it looks incomplete... the fonts are not visually appealing and there are no icons...

    More text and Icons are necessary ...it is better to have a collage of examples rather than have so many big size examples on the home page....

    avoid https ...it slows down the site...

    https is one of the basic ways to harden WordPress - it does not (or should not) slow down the site if a good cache plugin is used.

    No..not necessary. a https site can still be hacked. "https" does not guarantee that the site will not be hacked.

    SSL slows down the site because there are more overheads on the CPU and the server . security - What is the overhead of using HTTPS compared to HTTP? - Stack Overflow Not sure if the cache plugin will help much, because a new session is created each time.

    SSL should preferably be used only for ecommerce and user login/registration or the admin area

    Actually, Mare, prateekshawebdesign is partly correct. An SSL does require a fair amount of CPU overhead. Normally it's not enough by itself to cause any slowdowns, but when combined with a subpar host with long-held speculation that their shared servers in particular are oversold and the ever-increasing WP requires, there's going to be a site load time impact. A cache plugin may help somewhat, but it won't likely be enough...especially since the cache plugin itself requires certain resources.

    That doesn't mean HTTPS everywhere is a bad idea...it's a good one. But if you're going to do it, you need some puh-puh-puh-puh-puh-POW-ER!

    Nowhere do I say that it guarantees a site will not be hacked - it is only one of many steps that should be taken to secure a Wordpress site.

    That forum post and the answers to it are from 2009 when PHP 5.3 was the most recent release.
    In 2012 PHP 5.4 was released and included a built-in webserver and improvements to existing features as well, most notably improved performance and reduced memory requirements.
    In the summer of 2013 5.5 was released and OPCache, which is based on Zend Optimizer, came bundled with it.
    In 2014 we got PHP 5.6, with still more functionality and small improvements, and this month PHP 7 was released. Some servers are not running 7 yet, but if they are not running at least 5.6 they are falling short of WP's own recommendations.

    EDIT: Game is right - So look at the host before you make the decision on if and where to run https.
