Cyber Security: How Do You Create A Website And Keep It Secure?

Many people want to know how to create a website, but they usually don’t think about cyber security. Normally, they’re too caught up in trying to increase traffic to their site or making it look nice and pretty. Well, if you neglect the security on your website, then it will cause you a lot of harm. All the traffic your site gets will be potentially in a lot of danger from cyber threats. Their information could get stolen, and guess who they’ll blame? That’s right, they’ll blame you right away and demand some form of compensation.

Please continue below.

Likewise, you’re putting yourself in danger and risking the possibility of hacks if you haven’t got a secured website. All the important data on your site regarding you/your business is in jeopardy too. Not to mention the fact people can hack your site and alter it, which can tarnish your reputation and create quite the scandal.

So, how do you create a website and keep it secure? Here are some tips to help you improve cyber security:

#1 Understand Web Development

If you understand web development and are highly trained in this area, it will help you improve the security of your site. There are many places like Training Connection where you can book courses to learn about web development. Develop your skills, and you’ll have knowledge of different development platforms which means you’ll know the security features and plugins that work best with each one. As a result, you can use this knowledge to develop your site and ensure you make good use of the best security features available.

#2 Install SSL

SSL is a must-have for any website, particularly if transactions are made, or sensitive information is shared. This will encrypt your website connection, enabling people to visit it without worrying about the private information being leaked or stolen, and protecting them online. It’s not going to keep hackers at bay, your site could still be at risk of malicious attacks, but it is something you need to include as part of the perfect cyber security strategy for your site.

#3 Use One Server Per Website

You’ll need to purchase a hosting plan when setting up your site to give yourself a server. This will act as the base for your website, it’s where it’s hosted. A lot of hosting plans come with options that allow you to host multiple sites on one server. Never do this. Only host one website on one server. The more sites on a site, the easier it is for a hacker to wreak havoc. Speaking of servers, ensure you purchase a private one instead of using a free, shared, server. Yes, the second option doesn’t cost a penny, but it’s highly unsafe, and your site won’t be secure.

Hopefully, you’ve found this piece helpful and will now apply this advice to improve your cyber security. It's so important that you keep your website protected and safe from any online threats. Not just for your benefit, but for the benefit of all the people that use your site and trust you.
