How to prevent a social media or website crisis: Digital Security
How to prevent a social media or website crisis by using Jeff Social Web, Website Security features.
To prevent a crisis with your website or social media accounts from being taken over is use a strong password and two step verification on your website and social media accounts.
What determines a strong password is length, mix of characters, numbers and symbols. Don’t use a common word as your password.
Two step verification provides an extra layer of security by requiring a second method to log into your account like a text message or email. Our Websites and Hosting accounts offer two step verification to our users.
A website can be temporarily shut down by an attack called a ‘distributed denial of service attack’ DDOS. This attack happens when a bunch of servers at one time send requests to your visit website acting as website traffic causing your website to crash.
A DDOS can cause your website to crash damaging your SEO efforts. It can take days to recover your website
DDOS attacks can be prevented by using a website security product like the Jeff Social Web Advance Website Security.
Backing up your website data is another way you can secure your website. If you somehow manage to lose your website data you will be able to use a recovery from your backup. Jeff Social Web also provides Website Backups starting at $3.99 a month.
A firewall can also be installed on your website to prevent malicious website traffic and hackers. The Jeff Social Web, Standard Website Security feature comes with a firewall starting $7.99 per month.
