Internet security is more important today than ever before. With the advent of new technologies and the increasing connectivity of devices to the Internet, malicious attackers are always looking for ways to take advantage of security vulnerabilities. This article will teach you how to protect yourself and your site from these attacks.
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Certificates
SSL certificates are a good way to ensure the security of your website and the information you collect. SSL certificates are used by almost all websites that have sensitive personal or financial data, like e-commerce sites, banks and healthcare providers.
SSL certificates encrypt the information that is transmitted between users and servers, ensuring that no one else can read or tamper with it. It also verifies that a website is legitimate by showing its name on the browser’s address bar; this is known as Domain Validation (DV).
When someone enters credit card information into an application, they expect that their information will not be stolen or exposed to hackers who could use it for fraudulent purposes. Using SSL certificates helps protect against these types of threats because they prevent unauthorized parties from accessing private data sent over public networks like Wi-Fi hotspots or unsecured Internet connections.
Passwords and Login Credentials
When it comes to passwords and login credentials, you have a few options. You can use a password manager tool that generates strong and unique passwords for every account you create, stores them in an encrypted database, and logs you into websites with one click. This is by far the most secure method because it prevents hackers from accessing any of your accounts if they gain access to just one of them.
Another option is to use long passphrases instead of traditional passwords—but this strategy has its drawbacks: if someone guesses or steals even part of your passphrase, they could easily log into all of your accounts with it (a breach known as “credential stuffing”). Passphrases are also less convenient for users than simple four-digit PINs or randomly generated sequences like “123456” or “qwerty.”
A third option is to keep track of all the different usernames and passwords yourself using an Excel spreadsheet or some other form of physical notebook; but this method has two main flaws: firstly (and obviously), if someone steals your notebook they will have immediate access to everything; secondly (and less obviously), keeping track of all those usernames and passwords on paper becomes increasingly difficult over time as more login information accumulates.
Web Hosting Safety
Websites hosted by Self Designs use secure servers and encrypted connections to ensure your information is safe. Behind the scenes, we use industry-standard encryption and secure transfer protocols to encrypt all data that passes between you and the server.
In addition, we monitor our web hosting infrastructure for unauthorized access attempts. This includes monitoring network activity on our servers for signs of intrusion or other suspicious activity. If an intrusion occurs, we’ll take immediate action to stop it from spreading across our network and will notify law enforcement (if necessary).
We are committed to keeping our site safe and secure so you can enter your information without worrying.
We’re committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our customers. We want you to feel confident in entering your information on our site, knowing that it won’t fall into the wrong hands.
We take many steps to protect the security of our site, including using industry-standard SSL certificates, which encrypt data sent between a browser and web server. This means that any personal information you enter—your name, address and credit card number—can’t be intercepted by third parties during transmission.
If you’re concerned about identity theft or phishing scams (when someone pretends to be from a legitimate organization), we recommend taking some simple precautions: Don’t click on links in emails from unknown sources; avoid sharing personal information with anyone; use strong passwords that aren’t easy to guess; avoid clicking on links in emails unless they come directly from us (like this one). As always, if something seems suspicious or makes you uncomfortable, reach out and ask us directly!
Your website is an extension of you, and it’s important to keep it secure. There are many ways to do that, but the easiest is by working with a web hosting company like ours.
