8 security steps for a Web Hosting

Have you ever wondered what the essential elements to maintaining a secure and protected web server are?

Cybersecurity is a fundamental factor to avoid undue exposure of your data and files hosted on a hosting server.

Protecting the hosting server infrastructure and the clients’ personal information hosted on your server should be your top priority from your beginnings as a web hosting provider.

In this blog post, we will discuss the eight security measures for your customers’ web hosting.

1-Choosing a reliable Datacenter

A reliable data center that guarantees good network connectivity and uptime is a good indication that the service will always be active, offering the best performance.

Either physically or online, you should continuously monitor the performance of the rack where the server is connected.

The hosting provider must guarantee the protection of the server using monitoring tools that show server alerts through status.

A team of expert technicians should always be available to act in the event of an emergency.

2-SFTP

Secure SFTP file transfer is a security protocol that ensures that files are sent via SSH.

This protocol has been implemented recently, and many providers still do not implement it in their services. Still, it is a more recommended option than the FTP protocol because it takes care of security between the client and the server by encrypting the user id and password.

3-Implement SSL Certificates

SSL certificates are a security measure for electronic transactions that a user performs on the website; using encryption techniques, and third parties can not violate the data.

With the HTTPS protocol, the client and the server are protected, and as a hosting provider, you can offer the service as an extra within your hosting plans as free or premium.

With this protection method, the hosted domains have more control, and security methods are also increased.

4-Activate SSH access

Secure Shell or SSH is a network protocol that allows servers to be controlled remotely through a command in an encrypted channel. When a client wants to access their server, they can do so using this remote protocol.

It works the same as if you were physically running the server and the connections are remote, so the processes performed through ssh can not be violated by hackers or attackers.

5-Backup Data

What would you do if something goes wrong on your server and all the information is heavily compromised?

The quickest solution to this eventuality is to opt for a data restoration plan.

Backups are usually a lifesaver for hosting providers and for end customers as they can restore the information without losing files.

A hosting provider that offers daily data backups will always generate more trust for new and existing customers.

6-Using Disks in RAID Mode

RAID or redundant group of independent disks is a data storage system that implements multiple disks compared to a single storage disk.

Logically, the system will only detect one powerful disk.

When implementing RAID technology, the server will not be compromised if one hard disk is affected; it can be replaced by another disk within the array and restructure the data distributed on the other disks.

7-Implementing Server Restore

Dedicated and virtual servers can perform a manual reboot, this option can be a quick solution when the servers have a high load or something is not working well.

Performing a manual reboot will restore databases and other backups if data or files are lost due to the reboot.

8-Inclusion of Firewalls and AntiSpam Filters

Firewalls give protection to all websites by limiting access to unidentified sources.

As for the anti-spam protection, this allows the system to identify, for example, incoming emails that have a high risk or unidentified malware.

Our anti-spam filters can be configured and customized by the client from his control panel in cPanel.
