Firstly I joined webhosting hub. I'm using wordpress and plugins etc. I use Lodgix software as my main source for bookings. Not sure how to tell if that is secured.
I use stripe for credit cards.If I need to make my site secure, can anyone recommend what to purchase.

Thanks for the question about wanting to know if your website is secure and for recommendations for security for credit card purchases. First, Web Hosting Hub servers are secured in several different ways including firewalls, network setup, and software rules that allow you to login to your hosting service though you only really see the login screens for cPanel, the Account Management Panel (AMP), or your installed website software. If you're trying provide security for your credit card purchases, then one of the main things you will need is an SSL certificate. Depending on how you're configured to process credit card information, an SSL certificate may be required. This all depends on how you website is setup to handle purchases. If you're unfamiliar making your website secure for commerce, then I highly recommend hiring a website developer who has that expertise.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.
