    Hi!

    Here's some of a tips to secure your website from hacking.

    1.) Always update your software, platform and script. Everything on your site should be updated and kept updated by reliable system. This apply in both operating system or any software running on your website. When website security holes are found in those software, hacker will abuse them.

    2.) Install security plugins. It prevents against hacking attempts.

    3.) Be strict in the file submission or even to avoid the users to upload file in your website. Uploading files in your website can always be a big risky. It could contain scripts that when executed on your server, it can completely opens up your website.

    Hope this tips can help you.

    Make sure to secure your networks with firewalls, running antispyware and virus-detection programs on servers and network-addressed storage systems.

    Use a complicated password for control panel, FTP's, database, email accounts and if you are using WordPress make sure it and plugin versions are updated.

    You should use encrypted software for special security of your data. All online payment dealing sites use such type of security. You should take backup of your data daily against any threat of its loss if your site does not deal with online payments. Keeping backup of data is very necessary. You can purchase removable drive according to its capacity from the markets to keep your data safe. I use 1000 gb drive for keeping my data safe. Whenever i update data i take its backup.

    Theft is not the only thing on the mind of a hacker: Sheer destruction is a major motivator. Hackers may want to destroy all your records, put a sick message on your customers’ screens or just destroy your reputation.

    You can never undo the damage done by a hacker; you can take steps to prevent it.

    1. You need to stay up to date with hacking threats

    2. Toughen up access control

    3. Update everything

    4. Tighten network security

    5. Install a web application firewall

    6. Install security applications

    Measures that can be taken to keep data secure include: making regular backups of files backup copies should be stored in fireproof safes or in another building protecting yourself against viruses by running anti-virus software. using a system of passwords so that access to data is restricted.

    Update website software.

    blank index.html documents for folders that you do not want the directories viewable.

    Proper permissions for files and folder. Have seen so many problems caused by people who assign 777 or 755 to everything

    Beware of “Free Plugins and Themes” that are not approved by the web script developers.

    Beware of paid plugins and themes that are not supported or updated.

    Be modest. Don’t brag about yourself, how much money you make or how you have never been hacked.

    Use a good hosting company and take backups of your site.
