Security 
There are a variety of security options to keep in mind, not just the malware and malicious bot blocking. We wanted to make sure you got protection from SQL injection and cross-site scripting, as well as support for SSL websites. The products that have threat statistics are useful to keep on top of any problems that may arise.

Performance
The performance features make sure that your website doesn't have long loading times that will frustrate your customers. In this section we looked at whether the service provided caching or compression. We also checked to see if they had a content delivery network. All of these features will make sure that your site doesn't drag.

Management
Keeping on top of your website statistics can make the difference between a good website and a great website. If you have a dip or a surge in your visitors then you can see if anything has affected your website to cause this. We also like to have real-time notifications in case a problem does arise.

Help & Support
Though the majority of the website security and performance services don't need a lot of help, you will find it useful on occasion, especially if there is a new virus making the rounds. The companies that provide community help and training videos give you the support structure you need to keep your website running at full speed.

After looking through all of the products you can see the advantages to having a cloud-based website security and performance service. You want to look for services that offer comprehensive security and that don't just keep your website running as well as you expect, but better than it did before. The real trick is finding a service that enhances both security and performance.

 

Common Website Security and Performance Service Questions & Answers

Have a website security or performance question of your own?

Brandon: I would think the answer to your question would be determined by where the value of the "goods" associated with a business are housed. If a business has a physical location with physical goods, physical security and insurance are important. If a business is based on "information products" and those are housed locally, items like redundant backups, anti-virus/anti-malware protection, and errors and omission insurance becomes important. If the content is stored in the cloud, in...

Hi Amber, the certification might not have been properly installed or it expired as Chris Sabanty mentioned. A couple other things... the certificate could be under www.amberslists.com and not amberslists.com or vice versa (either www or not). Or parts of the custom system may not be linked to the https:// (such as images, scripts, etc.) which also sometimes throws errors. I took a quick look and there is the message, "This server could not prove that it is www.amberslists.com; its security...

The only way to prevent contact form spam is to not have a contact form. That doesn't work for most people, so the best we can do is reduce the amount of spam that is allowed to be submitted without making it too hard for real contacts. From a general security perspective, you want to reduce the number of bots and bad actors from reaching your site. A good security plugin like WordFence will help reduce unwanted visitors. I've had good success with using Contact Form 7 and the Contact Form 7...

I have 58 WordPress websites to protect on a VPS managed server. While I don't rely exclusively on the Hosting company; they do backups and take other assorted security measures. I believe that iThemes WP-Better-Security and Wordfence are the top security plugins for WordPress so I use one or the other on every website I build. I'd like to pick and stick with one, but sometimes there are WordPress themes that simply won't cooperate. :-) Whichever plugin is used I remove the user name...

+1 for LastPass. Excellent reputation for security - their technical architecture is such that employees cannot decrypt your passwords, even if they wanted to. Also easy integrations with browsers and mobile apps. Example incident on LastPass, links below. This gives you a good idea about how safe/vulnerable you are using a password manager like LastPass, and their tech held-up pretty well under the circumstances. Wired Article:...

It is extremely important. Having worked at a company which managed 6 million domains (a domain parking company, Oversee.net) the amount of traffic we had to block due to compromised domains due to hacking, malware and other misc cyber related traffic was tremendous. I don't have a feel for the Entrepreneur side but the business side it is critical as from my personal experience it is a major issue. Also the more public the business the more chance of attacks. Also if it is a company which...
