Your small business website is working great. Your personal website now features a WordPress blog. Whether it is a personal website or a small business website, you have invested time, talent, and money in creating a website. Hopefully, you have made the decision to use ClickHOST for simple hosting or WordPress hosting. But you may not realize that Mayhem lurks around every dark corner. Maybe it is a hacker, ready to pounce on your unprotected site just for kicks (the recent Zappos.com breach is a good example). Or maybe it is a clever parasite, called malware, that has already wormed its way into your site undetected, sending spam email that can only be tracked back to you. Even worse, what if Mayhem is actually you or your webmaster, who by some accidental keystroke, has crashed everything. Even if the airbag deployed, and damage is minimal, you still need repair. Here are three things that you need to consider, because it is not a matter of IF damage will happen, it is a matter of WHEN. Are you ready for a hacker attack? Are you protected from hackers? Are you hosting with ClickHOST?
Just as in driving, the best way to avoid an accident is to be aware of your surroundings. Anticipate where problems can occur, both problems caused by hackers, and problems that you can potentially cause. At ClickHOST, we know that you have a business to run or content to write, and keeping up with the latest in website security may not be on the top of your “to-do” list. When you choose to have ClickHOST host your website, you can rely upon us to keep up with the latest security risks. For example, the recent timthumb WordPress security flaw. ClickHOST constantly monitors this so that they are aware of potential security breaches even before your site can feel the damage. With a ClickHOST site, you are already ahead of the curve when it comes to security awareness.
Take steps now to assure that your site is safe. If you have a WordPress site, investigate plugins that will create the security barrier your site needs. If you are unsure of what you can do proactively to avoid potential security problems, talk with a ClickHOST support expert. Because you have chosen ClickHOST, a team of experts is ready to assist you. Don’t wait. Contact ClickHOST now to learn more about how you can be prepared.
You can be aware of potential security issues, you can prepare your site to lessen the chances, but in the end, it is just a matter of time until you will be faced with a serious problem. If something bad happened today, would you know what to do first? If you had chosen another host company, you could be on your own. In the event of hacking or even a problem that you inadvertently created, you can rely on ClickHOST! We have your back, or backup so to speak! Did you know that ClickHOST backs up your site every day, every week, and every month, so you are ready when Mayhem strikes. In the event of a problem, even if you do not have a backup plan yourself, ClickHOST can turn back the hands of time until a point where you are up and running. If you didn’t choose ClickHOST, your site may not have the peace of mind. So breathe deeply, knowing that you have made the best decision.
