Website Security

Do you have a website that is under attack?

Website HackingHow about a notice from your hosting company of having malware on your site? Google blocks between 20,000 and 30,000 website a week due to security concerns of malware. And over 50,000 a week due to phishing attempts. And these are from sites the pose an immediate danger to users. Many more websites under attack with spam generating code and other low risk attacks.

Keeping your website secure is important. Major search engines filter website from results that they know to have malware on them. With no listings in search results your site won’t get traffic. Once blocked it can be a long hard road to get your site back in the good graces of the big engines.

Over 50% of all hacked websites are vulnerable because of out of date code, plugins, and servers. It is critical that your site is always up to date and servers patched against the latest threats. Proper website security involves having strong and secure passwords and access user names. A password comprised of mixed characters at least 10 long can protect your website well. This will make it less desirable to hackers. Remember that a hacker cannot see your password and must use guesses to pick it out.

We have the right tools to fix your site

Site Repair ToolsThe tools in our arsenal allow us to get your website clean, and help it to stay that way. Pacific Northwest Web Works can even help you to maintain your site updates and keep a good eye on security. There are many different types of sites and engines out there. Because of this we have chosen to focus on WordPress based sites and sites that are comprised of flat HTML/PHP. With a narrow focus we are better able to ensure the sites come out secure and ready to defend themselves.

We prefer to ensure the sites we clean have good sound backups. Backups can be through their host or some other setup devised for that website. A good backup can help you to recover from a hacked site, as well as server failures and unforeseen problems. Can anyone say ‘Opps I did not mean to delete that…’?

The bad guys will always be out there. The question is are you ready?

Pacific Northwest Web Works can always preform a site checkup to test the security of your site. We can help ensure your are always ready for the unknown. As part of our maintenance plans we preform regular site checks. Sites can also get checked out when requested for a normal service fee. Alex & Ashley are always happy to guide you with your concerns to security. Also we can guide you with what you need to do to protect yourself and your site.
