At ClickHOST the security of your website is one of our driving passions. We hate spam, malware and hacking. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to prevent a website from being hacked. If a hacker wants in, he will find a way in. We can however, monitor a website for suspicious activity. We can then take quick action to stop the malware from spreading. As part of our security strategy we keep a number of backups of our customers’ data, including a backup to a remote server. In the worst case we can always recover from a previous backup.
Free malware and hacking monitoring
Today, we are very excited to announce a partnership with Sucuri.net. With this partnership all our customers get FREE malware and hacking monitoring. You don’t need an account with Sucuri. We manage everything for you and will notify you if we see anything suspicion on your website. This also includes letting you know if the software on your website is outdated.
Our BEST plan customers get free unlimited malware cleanups. We will notify our BASIC and BETTER plan customers if we see anything suspicion. They can then opt to remove the malware themselves OR we can do it for $20 per incident. You can order malware cleanup here.
