By: [google_authorship]

Website hosting is when you make your own website accessible to other people through the Internet. When you have your own website, it is imperative that you keep it as secure as possible. These days, the Internet is rife with malicious dangers of all kinds, which can adversely and seriously affect the running of your own website. Site security deals with making sure that your website is protected as much as it possibly can be from these external threats.

Website hosting is made more challenging by the prevalence of all these threats. However, there are some simple and common sense measures that you can take to ensure that your site security is solid.

One of the simplest ways of keeping your website secure is by not sharing your log-in details with anyone. Giving this information out to anyone else besides only you and maybe one or two other people who absolutely have to know this information for work on your site is risky and not advisable. This straightforward piece of advice can go a long way in protecting the integrity of the security of your website.

Adding plugins to WordPress is another simple but effective strategy for keeping your website secure and also making your website hosting a lot easier. These plugins are software pieces that help add functionality to WordPress’ blogging platform. As a result, they have the effect of also increasing the security of your website.

Regularly updating your software is an oft-repeated piece of advice that many people hear, and with good reason. Regularly updating your software—such as your anti-virus protection program—ensures that any new threats and viruses are recognized by your software. Consequently, if such external threats should attack your website, your software is able to detect them and prevent them from doing damage to your website.

Hackers are a threat to site security and have been for the longest time. Using a firewall to protect against these hackers by shielding your website is a smart and necessary precaution. The purpose of a firewall is to disallow unauthorized access to your website. It accomplishes this by way of denying network transmissions based on a predetermined set of rules.

Website hosting is made tougher due to all the threats that exist on the Internet. With the right precautions and strategies like the ones outlined above, you can still host your website, but do so securely.
