How We Tune Your Website’s Security
Why is security important in a website? How do we implement security features on your website?
Your website is an important asset of your business. It is your key marketing and selling tool. That’s why it’s crucial to keep it secure at all times. What would happen if your website doesn’t have security measures in place?
- Your website can get hacked and be injected with malicious content
- Your site could have malware and install viruses to people who visit your website
- You can get banned from search engines and most major browsers
- Your website could break and not display properly
Protect Sensitive Data Through Encryption
As a first step, we make sure all the websites we build are set up to use an SSL certificate. It’s a certificate that masks any information sent to and from your website.
This way usernames, passwords, credit card information and other sensitive data are protected as it goes through the internet.
Google has identified security as important for a website to have. It is now a factor for an improved ranking.
Keep Those Unwanted Messages Out
Have you ever received messages out of nowhere selling you things you don’t need or will never buy? These are spam emails. Spam doesn’t just eat up inbox space, they sometimes contain viruses or malware that can harm your computer and compromise your data.
We make sure your website is protected from spam. We use spam protection that can block spam bots from submitting your forms on your site.
We also install a firewall on your website. Firewall plugins harden up your site’s security, protecting it against brute force attacks where bots are constantly trying different random passwords to get in.
Make Sure Your Site Displays Properly
The next thing we do is set up your website as a child theme. The child theme is where all the design files actually are.
When the core theme (the software used to control the design of your website) needs to be updated to install any security patches, the child theme is not affected. All your design features stay exactly as they are so your website still displays properly.
Secure Hosting Protects Your Site From Hackers And Threats
We will put your website on a secure hosting. One that is not crammed with hundreds of other sites and owned by random different people which might have unsafe security practices.
We have several servers and we carefully select one that would be appropriate for your site’s resource needs. We also don’t overload them. We put only a handful of our clients on a server at a time and with other sites that we ourselves look after.
