Avoid unverified plug-ins
Plug-ins are more vulnerable to attack, because they require manual updates every time a software bug is fixed. Avoid having to update your web apps or add-ons by using a centralized website platform that updates them for you.
Filter threats with a WAF (Web Application Firewall)
Prevent data loss or worse, an entire host takeover. Use a web application firewall to help protect your server and filter out these threats.
Use a hosting platform that guards against malware
Malware can damage or steal your data. Be sure to use a web hosting platform that frequently scans for malware and protects your sites with firewalls and antivirus programs.
Create strong passwords
Get smart about your passwords by following a few guidelines to keep them strong:
Use at least 8 random letters, numbers and symbols
Avoid any personal info like names, addresses or phone numbers
Never reuse or share your passwords
Change your passwords every few months
Backup your website
Stay on the safe side and schedule frequent website backups, so you don’t lose all your hard work. You can also use a website building platform that autosaves your drafts and makes it easy to duplicate your sites.
