Even though our major purpose on making a website is just to build small business, but we should make a tight selection on web hosting service as if we are about to make a big online business. The most important thing that should be our consideration is the website security. We can choose small storage or bandwidth and upgrade it if we need it, but when it comes to security, we should have a maximal security from the first day we use our website.
There are numerous threats on the internet world, so security is one thing that we cannot ignore. Threats like DOS attack and identity thefts are the most common dangerous threats. If we are buying an expensive web hosting service like dedicated server, then we don’t have to worry about security system. However, not all of us are having a high budget to buy dedicated server web hosting.
If we are going to buy a web hosting, then make sure it has the most advanced security plans like Antivirus, AnstiSpam, SSL, Anti Denial, and many others. High security on the control panel, especially on root servers is essential due to the fact that control panel is the main gate to our website content and everything installed in it. When we are managing our website, we should be protected with some security features like POP3, SSH, Secure FTP, and many others. These security features are helping us to protect our data when we are working with our email, password, and configuration.
For the control panel, it should be protected with high security just like cPanel and Plesk. There are so many web hosting companies that have used these features. And yes, it is strongly recommended for anyone to check about these matters before purchasing a host service to keep everything secured. They are mostly already integrated on dedicated servers so that purchasing one will be a great investment.
