Who should stop site attacks?

Several years ago a new member published a blog using Wordpress. There wasn't any advertising on it, not Google ads or otherwise. It was just a personal site that grew in posts and number of visitors. Because it was Wordpress it was attacked continuously. He sees from some of the threads on WHT that that type of thing still happens. So he wonders is there anything a web host can do, or does, to monitor and prevent outgoing and incoming script attacks? Or should the host do anything? Would that make them responsible if a site under their care was hacked? Should the so called "managed Wordpress hosts" include some level of protection in their services? Share your thoughts in this thread.

Gabe has produced his next server parts pricing report for 2021. He tracks changing parts prices for RAM, SSDs, Hard Drives, CPUs, and a couple of GPUs. Typically this is done monthly, and then shared with WHT in a monthly report. Currently, all listed prices are from ebay, for used hardware, but he may start tracking more new hardware as well if there is a demand for it. Prices as of May 25th 2021.
