They require access to your website and steal all the entire data (like details of visitors, payments, emails etc…). They actually earn by selling the information and also use for their personal use.

Update software & plugins regularly

Wheather your website running on any platform, you have to update your platform and their plugins regularly. You also have to update your system and maintain firewall setting which will help to protect from phishing kind of attacks. CMS providers like WordPress, Joomla release regular patches, and updates that make their software less vulnerable to attacks. Ensure that you run these updates and have the latest version supporting your site. So the vulnerability of your site will always low.

Also, use third-party checkup so they can tell you about your website stats in details and whether there any vulnerability present or not, it will help you to analyze your website in details. This will help you to track your website performance. Clean up unused, old plugins which are not in use it will boost your site and also make your website secure and easy to maintain.


Secure HTTPS (SSL Certificate)

If you are using HTTP then switch to HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) which is must require in terms of website security. It will secure your website and also give your website a security certificate which is known as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), its a standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser.

SSL is also mandatory and implemented by Google from January 2017. However, all that is about to change with Google’s recent announcement that HTTPS will be a search ranking factor. Besides the security aspect of things, it now makes even more sense to shift your entire website to HTTPS to improve your search rankings simultaneously.

Website Security Seal

Use website security seal which will ensure your customers or visitors that they are in a safe place and do whatever they want to like pay, subscribe, comment, post etc. Because a visitor also wants to ensure that he is using a certified or secure platform or not.

Security Seal will analyze your website and find malware if found then quarantine or delete them from the site. It works like antivirus on your website and maintains security.

 


Build layers of security

By using different security software you can make a security layer around your website. Like you can use antivirus on your laptop or computer and enables firewall setting on your system that is the first security layer. The use cloud-based firewall which famous these days for security concerns. All website owners can now “rent” a cloud-based Web Application Firewall, without committing to pricey security appliances or even owning a dedicated hosting server. Better yet, these plug-and-play services don’t require you to hire security experts or attempt to learn every aspect of web security.

Every year thousands of websites hacked, it’s becoming clear that hosting providers are not sufficiently equipped to handle all website security threats because website security is not within their primary agenda. Now cloud-based Web Application Firewalls are filling that void.
