Frequently Asked Questions
Website security can be challenging, especially when dealing with a large network of sites. Having a secure website is as vital to someone’s online presence as having a website host. If a website is hacked and blocklisted, for example, it can lose up to 98% of its traffic. Not having a secure website can be as bad as not having a website at all or even worse. For example, client data breach can result in lawsuits, heavy fines, and ruined reputation.
The main security risks of a website include: vulnerable code, poor access controls, and server resource exploitation. For example, DDoS attacks can make a website unavailable to visitors in a matter of minutes. There are a lot of reasons why websites get hacked; a weak password or outdated plugin can lead to a hacked website.
