How to Secure Your Professional Website with the Right Hosting
Your new website
If you’re getting ready to open your own website, there are some decisions you need to make before you get started. One of the biggest concerns you may have when it comes to opening a website is security; after all, the last thing you want to do is leave yourself open to theft or other malicious activities. To help you choose the right hosting for your business and keep your website secure, here are seven ways to secure your professional website with the right hosting.
1) The basic principles
2) Choosing your web host
3) Securing web servers
Invest in a DDoS attack prevention solution: This will help you block malicious traffic before it reaches your server, like Koddos.
4) How do I keep my site up to date?
Keeping your website up to date is one of the most important things you can do to ensure your visitors have a positive experience. Updating means making sure that all the information on your site is accurate and up-to-date, as well as keeping any new content added by you or anyone associated with your business accessible via links. Updates also include fixing broken links and removing material from pages. Sites without regular updates can lose traffic, which may then turn elsewhere for their online information needs.
5) Don't use public Wi-Fi networks while you're working on sensitive data
Do not use public Wi-Fi networks when working with sensitive data. There are several reasons for this: Your computer and personal information are at risk of being hacked if you use a public Wi-Fi network to work with sensitive data. Hackers can access your computer, steal your files and even plant malware on it that could track your activities or spy on you. Public Wi-Fi networks often have poor security measures in place, which means they are vulnerable to attacks from other users who may be looking to exploit weaknesses in the system.
