I Think My Website Is Hacked! How to Know, and How to Fix It
Most website owners don’t realize their website is vulnerable until it’s too late. A hacked website is the worst nightmare for any up-and-coming entrepreneur or a small business owner. Knowing where to find the proper protection against hackers and being able to quickly restore your website are both of the utmost importance. If your website has been hacked, popular search engines such as Google might blacklist it, warning visitors that your website may be a “Suspected Malware Site.” When your online presence is everything, trying to thwart threats can be daunting and downright overwhelming but it doesn’t have to be that way anymore. Taking the right steps to protect your visitors from malware is a breeze with GoDaddy’s Sucuri Website Security tools. Malware does not discriminate, it’s designed to find any vulnerability in any website. In today’s age of automation, a hacker’s code never sleeps; it’s always meticulously and systematically hunting for open backdoors. These are valid concerns for any website owner because malware comes in a wide variety of forms and it’s designed to affect us all. From small business owners to nonprofit organizations, entrepreneurs, public figures, large corporations, governments and more, we are all at risk of being affected by malware. Set up and schedule regular website backups to ensure that you have access to all your website files in the event of a data breach or other disaster. Make it a priority to perform backups consistently. This is your safety net. Weak passwords offer an easy in for hackers, so protection against hackers really starts with creating strong passwords and changing them regularly. To make your life easier, use a password manager. An SSL certificate, the little padlock on the address bar, will protect information transmitted over your website from prying eyes. Plus, Google Chrome and other browsers have begun marking websites without SSL encryption as “not secure.” For any website owner, taking a proactive and preventative approach to protecting your website from hackers is top priority. To ensure your visitors have a safe and secure experience when they visit your website, be sure to keep your website clean. The Journey is what everyday entrepreneurs, like you, need to follow in the pursuit of online success. Our experienced GoDaddy Guides are here to take you through all the steps, both big and small, that you encounter every day. Sucuri Site Check https://sitecheck.sucuri.net/
