Could you please tell me how my hosting provider can improve the protection of my site? These guys ****
says that Dr.Web can do this. Does it mean they just check the site for viruses? Tell me what can I ask my hoster to do with regard to protection and security for my site. I worked with a programmer 3 months ago, and he had access to the hosting via FTP. I changed my password but I`m still worried that he could harm the site. What else can I do?Answers (3)Antivirus is not a one size fits all solution. The most common reasons sites are hacked is because of the site shortcomings. It`s necessary to monitor and rapidly update the site engine and modules to it. In any event, hosting providers hold onto backups sites for approximately 1 month so you can reboot your site and fix the vulnerability. It`s also a good idea to change passwords for database access and to administrative parts of the site, and you should think about installing a complex password to ftp-account.First, have a well developed and well executed password policy. Passwords are valid with specified complexity, etc.; Second, complete timely updates of the CMS and all the plug-ins and components; Third, the hoster can run something like maldet (malware analyzer).Hi, anti-virus will not protect you from your programmer if he still has access. It`s necessary to change the password on Mysql and access to FTP. One useful feature most hosters have is restricting access by IP address.

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.
For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.
CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.
Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.
Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.
OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.
Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.
Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.
Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.
DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.
Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.
ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.
The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.
Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
