Secure Hosting vs Insecure Hosting: The Real Difference
As we continually get closer to the height of the internet age, securing your data has never been more important. The cloudy, glass ceiling of what is possible with technology is not only something we have trouble seeing past, it just keeps getting higher and higher. This goes double for those with malicious intent. Hacking attacks and new viruses pop up in the news almost daily for those paying attention to the right channels so it is no wonder why so many businesses are switching to a more secure hosting solution nowadays.
So, what does secure hosting mean anyway, and how will it help me protect my data?
Secure hosting means that there is a layer of encryption being utilized in the communication between users and web servers. This adds an amount of protection for users as those with malicious intent that happen to intercept packets from web servers will not be able to use this data as it will be encrypted or scrambled in such a way that will make the data unreadable and unusable. In the hands of a savvy hacker, unencrypted user data can serve innumerable purposes all of which will be seriously detrimental to the user. Bottom line, secure hosting is a company’s first line of defense against such activities and should not be underestimated.
Compared to standard, low cost hosting services such as Godaddy, utilizing secure hosting will most certainly be more expensive. But can you afford to put your company’s and your user’s data at risk? If the first link in your security is your weakest link, you are inviting even novice hackers to your doorstep and the results will be disastrous.
