• Protection of site content

    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?

    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.
