Security is the most important element in any business and especially in a company that handles digital information like Host Direct.
There are numerous security considerations, a few are mentioned here:
Security for the dedicated server
Security for the VPS
SSH security considerations
Encryption for the transmission of data over the internet - SSL / TLS
Website software updates
We will not be discussing this in detail in this part of our website. Detailed articles appear in the Host Direct Knowledgebase
Generally when it comes to installing an app on your website, one of the options will be, automatic software updates, and backup options which can be enabled and will protect your app from vulnerabilities by updating itself when an update becomes available.
In the past when these features were not available, manual software updates were required.
We do not expect our clients to concern themselves with server security, this is included when a client signs up for a managed dedicated server or VPS or reseller hosting package from Host Direct
. Hosting resellers may learn at their own pace from our knowledgebase and gradually become independent as they grow. Of course, each client will be responsible for any software that they install on their server.
