I came across your profile here on Freelancer and found your company OSKIRT on google. I want to set up a video/audio blog website (similar to [url removed, login to view]) and I already purchased the theme. The theme is SocialPlay. You can google it.
I currently use godaddy for most of my work but as you know, godaddy is trash. I have been looking into WP Engine but I want something that is cheaper for starting out. WP Engine has everything as far as from a security perspective but how they count bot crawls can lead to some serious over charges. I am thinking about trying out A2 Hosting first but I want some of your recommendations.
I pretty much need you to do the installation and harden the security for the website. I want to set up Amazon S3/Cloudfront with maybe CloudFlare for CDN purposes.I have read that when I use AWS, it sets it up where you need to create a CNAME for the static content stored on it. Can I still a standard SSL Cert or will I need a wildcard cert for AWS's subdomain?
I have messed around with hardening WordPress and I have some knowledge but I am not confident in my skills. I do have some security background but not in web lol. I am an Active Directory Engineer currently at my job and that is where my security background lies in. Let me know what you think and thank you for taking the time to read this. I hope you will take the job.
