Website Security Issues

When you are searching for a web hosting provider with security you should consider a few things. First does the web hosting provider offer a relationship with an SSL certificate provider? If you have a particular feeling toward one provider over another, you should make sure your host is compatible. Does the web host permit binary scripts or applications? Binary code can put your site at risk because it is not secure. Good web host providers will not allow binary code on their shared hosting. Good hosting also will make sure to provide the most current service patches and fixes for their software to make sure they are up-to-date on their security. You can also check on firewall systems which block hackers, and the physical security of their servers. Once you have your website security set up, make sure to use good passwords including numbers, symbols and letters (not words and not the same password you use elsewhere.) Also be sure to have your own anti-virus software and keep it updated.
