Chapter  7.  Improving Security

By its nature, it is harder to secure a web hosting environment. It is very easy to secure a server whose job is solely serving web pages, just close all ports besides HTTP port and make sure the web server is up to date. However, in shared web hosting environment, it is not possible to do that. What's good a web server, if you, our customers, can not update your web site.

While tries very hard to improve server security, our clients are also responsible for securing their own accounts. In this chapter, we will discuss many ways to improve your account's security.
