When ‘unlimited’ web hosting has limits and what to look for instead

Unlimited_Web_Hosting

One of the first steps to building a website is finding a good, cheap web host. But there are hundreds of web hosting providers all competing for attention and, in this hyper-competitive world, many things are not what they seem. One of them is ‘unlimited web hosting’.

Let’s mock up a little scenario. Imagine you’ve never before hosted a website and I presented you with the following pricing plans, which would you choose?

Example 1: 10GB storage, 1GB bandwidth, 5 email accounts, 10 MySQL databases (£1.99 per month)

Example 2: Unlimited storage, unmetered bandwidth, unlimited email accounts, unlimited MySQL databases (£3.99 per month)

I’m betting you’d weigh up the cost difference and pay the extra £2 per month for unlimited hosting. Am I right?

How Ecommerce Businesses Can Address Online Shopping Privacy Concerns

Protect_your_website

If you own an online business, your top priority should be to protect your site from cyberthreats. As data breaches become more common and hackers find more inventive ways to infiltrate sites and sensitive customer data, you’ll want to make sure you’re doing everything in your power to keep your site secure.

According to a recent study, 56% of consumers claimed they are more concerned about data privacy than they were a year ago, and 67% of respondents in a different study said they feared they would fall victim to a data breach in the near future. Online shoppers don’t feel safe online, and it weakens their trust in ecommerce shopping platforms to keep their data safe. The fact is, it’s impossible to completely protect your site from cyberattacks, but there are still things you can do to make your customers feel safer.

For example, Google will deter shoppers from visiting sites that aren’t secured with HTTPS. Over time, shoppers learn to avoid these types of sites. By addressing these basic security issues, you can make shoppers feel more secure. To help you learn about some of the ways you can improve your site’s security, Wikibuy laid out 15 steps in the infographic below.

Your Small Business Could be a Great Target for Cybercriminals

multimedia-2321269_1920

When it comes to running a small business, there are a lot of things that owners need to juggle. Cyber security is just another thing on a long to-do list. It’s also one that often falls by the wayside. After all, it’s not like you have a huge database of clients – who’s going to bother to hack you, right?

Wrong. That is a critical mistake. While it is true that your business has a lot less information to steal than would be the case with a large corporate, you are fooling yourself if you think you are not a target. In fact, small businesses can be a lucrative target for some hackers because they tend to be easier to hack.

How Could a Hacker Make Money Off Your Data?

There are a few main reasons that a hacker would want to get into your system, and none of these is good news for you.

  • Stealing personal information of clients.
  • Getting access to your financial information.
  • Installing Ransomware.
  • Creating chaos for fun.

Stealing Personal Information of Clients

This one is possibly the most dangerous of the lot because it can be hard to pick up. The only inkling anyone might have is when this personal information is used for identity theft, or when their credit card is used fraudulently.

You can be held liable if this happens because your systems weren’t adequately protected and that could mean having to settle serious lawsuits. Even if things don’t progress to court, rebuilding the trust of the clients who entrusted their information to you is not easy.
