  • How can we save our sites from being hacked

    Hackers and scammers are always on the prowl to back into ones site to take over, delete or steal ones data.I have read about people spending or paying so much much to hackers to get back their sites.
    What are the precautions site owners should take or put in place to avoid sites being hacked.

    Keeping software up to date is one of the biggest in my opinion - if things are outdated they're often more susceptible to newer things that hackers have come up with. Ensuring that your passwords are secure as well is important, and making sure they're not easy to guess. Including things like numbers and special characters is always something I do, to try and make the password stronger.

      I agree with @amelia88 Your website software and all its addons or plugins have to be updated to the latest versions. The second thing is Keep your admin all passwords strong, do not use any easy words like names and numbers. The strong password has to be atleast 8-12 letters combining upper case, lower case, numbers and special characters.

        Updating the software is all that i do to keep hackers away from my site. Passwords are not that hard for me because i am used to making my passwords long and meaningless. Combination of numbers and letters alternately.

          Always update your antivirus software and use incognito or private browser.

            Yea,I try to update my anti virus as soon as possible and I don't use any simple worded password,I think we should put every precaution in place and just hope that hackers don't have the loopholes to get into our sites because it seen most are IT experts.
