All to often people have websites designed and hosted by people who are extremely good at what they do but they have no clue/don’t care for security of your web environment.

Main points if concern in my opinion:

  • BASIC FTP… Yes in the day and age of SSL encrypted FTP or sFTP companies are still not giving their clients the option of a secure method to manage their web files….. It’s a sham, it shouldn’t be used in this day and age..: it is depreciated!!! Move on up!!!
  • BASIC web hosting settings… All too often web spaces are left wide open for illegal vulnerability testing. With such settings as: SHOW PHP ERRORS on, .htaccess denying web access to sensitive areas etc. Some hosting solutions do not even give you access to harden your environment in the proper manner…
  • The designers or hosters site is itself VULNERABLE… The average consumer won’t know this, but a simple google would equate to any results of past hack successes against the said site…
  • The days of the above failings need to end.. People of the web, take note… STOP THESE OBSURD practices…

    If you need someone with the knowledge to go through your setup to see if you are practicing safely etc just contact me via the contact page…

    It’s better to do it right than to ignore the things that will come and bite your arse in the end.

    Thanks for reading.
