Thanks for the information. The end result would be the same if they had used 'Wordpress'. They need to seek help from a skilled, older, reasonably paranoid IT person and the sooner they realize that the better.

We're actually in a good position for safe infrastructure right now, if a paranoid IT person shops around carefully. Plenty of TLD registrars not involved in cancel culture, "as long as it's not illegal" hosting farms, good DDOS protection available from multiple sources. The problem is IT people don't generally know how to build self-reliant completely self-contained site hosting from the ground up.

Subscriber email broadcast is especially troublesome with so many people on gmail, etc. It is very difficult to build email list support -- without predatory cancel companies like Mailchimp whose servers are whitelisted by Google -- without Google shunting to spam.
