Security is a critical task for protecting your business website. A compromised website that gets hacked is damaging to your business and your brand. We take security seriously. We provide hosting for our websites to protect you and your business at the server level.
Many, many years ago when I first started building my own business websites, I had some of my own sites hacked. It was invisible until I found out that my domain was blacklisted by Google. Check your site with Sucuri's free Website Malware Scanner, or use Google.
The hackers had created hidden pages that looked like bank credit card application forms. They would request financial account information from people. This is a "phishing attack". Nasty stuff.
I know that you may not think that your site is worth hacking. You may not think that you are a target. But hackers don't just attack high-volume, well-known sites with lots of users and data.
They now have automated bots that seek vulnerabilities. A bot can hit your site with thousands of login attempts trying to guess and crack your passwords. Bots attempt to inject malicious code with file uploads, comments, contact forms, and more. There are many reasons they want to hijack your site.
