Persistent Website Attacks
Many small business sites experience site failures due to denial of service attacks. Any internet service provider is vulnerable to such attacks, although most of the larger providers have systems in place to recognize and prevent these attacks. However, you can also use specialize products to discourage attackers. We like WordFence and iTheme’s Security Pro.
What DNS attacks do
Denial of services attacks are attempts to overwhelm the operating system of a server and force it into an error recovery mode. If not properly configured, the attacked server may offer diagnostic information that helps hackers gain further access to the system. If the hacker can gain access to the root folder of the server then they may be able to upload software that will snoop for passwords and email addresses. While we work with clients who host accounts at Go-Daddy.com, we charge more because their system is difficult to navigate and we often have to write specialized code to work within their structures. Some people have also complained about Go-Daddy’s servers injecting advertising code into their web pages. We proudly host our accounts at Bluehost.com.
