Website Security

SSL Certificates provide secure, encrypted communications between a website and an internet browser.

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer, the protocol which provides the encryption. SSL Certificates are typically installed on pages that require end-users to submit sensitive information over the internet like credit card details or passwords. Example pages include payment pages, online forms and login pages.

A firewall is a system that provides network security by filtering incoming and outgoing network traffic based on a set of user-defined rules. In general, the purpose of a firewall is to reduce or eliminate the occurrence of unwanted network communications while allowing all legitimate communication to flow freely.

In most server infrastructures, firewalls provide an essential layer of security that, combined with other measures, prevent attackers from accessing your servers in malicious ways.

Anti-virus software is a program or set of programs that are designed to prevent, search for, detect, and remove software viruses, and other malicious software like worms, trojans, adware, and more.

These tools are critical for users to have installed and up-to-date because a computer without anti-virus software installed will be infected within minutes of connecting to the internet.

The bombardment is constant, with anti-virus companies update their detection tools constantly to deal with the more than 60,000 new pieces of malware created daily.

Websites can, and do, go wrong from time to time. The three most common reasons for this are:

1. WordPress updates

Sometimes when updating WordPress itself, or a WordPress plugin, or a WordPress theme, the update does not run properly and something goes wrong. If this is the case, you may be faced with a blank screen and you will need to restore your website and start again.

2. Changes to your website

Sometimes, if you make changes to your website, some files may not update properly or they may get corrupted. Whilst this is rare, you will be very grateful for a backup if this does happen to you.

3. Your website is hacked

Websites can and do get hacked. It’s far more common than most people realise. If you do not have a copy of your website to restore from, then all your hard work will have gone to waste.

A backup is like an insurance policy for your website. If the worst happens and something goes wrong, you will be able to restore your website from the backup and save many hours of heartache, hassle and expense.
