This is another important part of keeping your website safe and more importantly on line. For every website we build we will set up secure user accounts for your administrator access. You will also have a website firewall installed to keep things safe as well as a backup component for keeping a secure copy of your website.
We routinely install some heavy duty security administration tools on to all our websites.
But in the fight against the hackers we would also advise that your site software is routinely upgraded. It's a bit like keeping the antivirus on your PC up to date - once it's been around a while the hackers have had time to work out a way in! We have various maintenance options available for keeping things tip top:
- One time website software upgrade. This service is quoted for on an as needed basis and is dependent on the age of the website and the time elapsed since the previous upgrade.
- Ongoing monthly website maintenance. This keeps site software up to date in line with updates and patches released by the developers as they become available. Most customers elect to pay for this service on a monthly basis. This is quoted for depending on the specific needs and requirements for your ongoing maintenance.
We do also, always keep a backup copy of any site we build once it goes live, so this can be restored should disaster strike. However, if you are going to make regular updates to your website it is important that you also take backups ... after all you wouldn't want to restore a 12 month out of date copy should the need arise.
Should the unthinkable happen and your website does get hacked we do have some useful contacts who we are able to call on to straighten things out and get your website back on line with the minimum of disruption.
