Understanding the Risks
The key to effective and comprehensive website security lies in fully understanding and acknowledging the risks all online businesses and webmasters face. Here at DDS Hosting, we’re constantly telling our clients that to turn a blind eye to security or to overlook its importance is to welcome the kinds of incidents that can bring even the most well-established business to its knees.

One of the first things to take into account is that no matter what kind of site you run or where you choose to host it, you’re a target for hackers and malicious web users. Every site on the web is fair game to those with crime on the brain, which means that no matter what type of hosting you choose or even which hosting provider you side with, you’re still in the crosshairs of someone, somewhere.

As such, it’s crucial to understand that there’s no such thing as a safe place to hide on the web, unless all necessary precautions are taken by way of extensive, comprehensive and round the clock site and hosting security. You’ll probably be told on occasion that shared hosting and VPS accounts face the highest risks of all, but in reality it’s actually a case of any hosting or server type that isn’t fully protected being at massive risk day in and day out.

And even if those that gain entry to your site only intend to use it as a platform upon which to churn out all manner of spam content and correspondence, this can be just as damaging as a hacker making his/her way into your accounts and taking every penny you own. Website security means covering all bases and not overlooking the importance of even the lowest-level attacks.

Here at DDS Hosting, we believe in a single form of website protection – total.

The Responsibility of the Hosting Company
DDS Hosting has always insisted on following a code of practice whereby we know who our customers are and their intentions. The trouble with so many hosting companies these days is that while their free hosting packages seem incredibly generous on the surface, they’re often magnets for misuse and abuse at the hands of those with anything but honesty and hard work on their minds. If a hosting company doesn’t insist on taking full details from each and every one of its clients, they have no idea who’s populating their server and what they plan to do.

Long before contemplating the firewalls, anti-virus and general security software any hosting company offers, we believe it’s first important to assess the kind of clientele that forms the firm’s customer base. DDS Hosting was created for responsible, careful and ambitious businesses and webmasters – not those looking to cash in at the expense of others.

Of course, we offer a wide range of security options as the needs of each respective site differ quite enormously, but when we promise total security for the right price, you can trust us to deliver.

DDS Hosting is committed to you, your site and your security.
