Joomla hosting and Security

Joomla Hosting

Joomla is one of the most used CMS application used around the Globe, that’s the
reason its security should be given high priority. For Customer end we have
listed few basic steps that can avoid your Joomla website from getting hacked.

1) Keep Joomla and its extensions up-to-date

Probably the most important part of securing your Joomla website is to
keep it updated to the latest version

2) Use Strong Login Details
Don’t leave default administrator account as “admin” and use strong
password for your website.
Many attackers try to brute-force your login details. This means that
they use a list of commonly used passwords to guess yours.

3) Use Proper File Permissions

Set the permissions for your Joomla folders to 755
Set the permissions for your Joomla files to 644
Set the permissions for your configuration.php file to 444
Never use 777(full access) permissions!

4) Delete unwanted & avoid third party un-identified developer’s extensions

Joomla is open source and as a Administrator you install many modules to
try out new functionality. It’s good to try and improve but bad without
knowing developer you install module. Delete extensions, which you are
not going to use.

5) Delete unwanted files/folder from your account that you are not using.

Make sure you delete all the unused or outdates files from website that can create a loop hole for hackers

to get in to your website.

When your WordPress site is hacked, you can lose your search engine 
rankings, expose your readers to viruses, have your reputation tarnished 
due to redirects to porn or other bad neighborhood websites, and worst

you have old themes and plugins that you’re not using anymore then

infections.Always keep your operating system and the software on it, 
especially your web browser, up to date to protect you from security 
vulnerabilities

Remember that domain names are unique – no two web sites can have the same name (or the same address). If you have an idea for a great name for your domain and that name has not already been taken, you can register your name even before you are ready to set up your website. This process is called “parking” the domain name and it ensures that the name will be available when you are ready to start your website. Many web hosting providers include domain names as part of the web host pack. Taking advantage of such an offer is one way an online business can benefit from the right web hosting pack.

Security is another feature offered by web hosting companies and another example of how an online business can benefit from the right web host pack. In today’s climate, computer hackers, viruses and worms are simply a matter of fact. If an online business cannot assure customers that it’s safe to enter personal information on the company’s website, there’s likely to be few people who are willing to take the chance. Especially when it comes to financial information – credit card numbers and bank account information – security is vital. People who routinely shop online are usually careful to note the privacy policies and security systems in place before they order. While providing your own security is feasible, having a web host pack that includes a solid security system will help ensure that your company information and your clients’ information is secure. After all, how hard would it be to regain trust if you had a major security breach?

Finding a web host that has a pack tailored to your needs is important. While it’s probably going to be easy to find a company that offers web hosting that exceeds your current needs, it might not be feasible for you to take on that extra expense (especially during the business’s infancy). For example, you might need only a single e-mail account, but with a large amount of disk space. The web host packs with enough disk space also have unlimited e-mail accounts. If you can find a company that will tailor a plan to your needs, that company might discount the monthly fee as long as you don’t need additional e-mail accounts. If you do find a plan like this, remember to allow yourself room to grow in the future. Looking for tailored plans is just another way an online business can benefit from the right web host pack.

WordPress is world’s most popular and widely used Blogging and Content Management System. The reason for being widely used as it is available free and open source. WordPress is also user friendly to use. Most of websites on Internet uses WordPress. So everybody must be aware of some particular WordPress error occur while using WordPress. It’s been found that WordPress memory exhausted error is amongst most commonly seen error. Let’s check out simple things regarding how to resolve this error.

It’s really disturbing if you find one fine day that some error is been displayed on your Blog. You see a white page and error give below:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of XXXXXXX bytes exhausted (try to allocate XXXXXXX bytes) in user/public_html/wp-includes/phpfile.php on line XXXX.

You might experience such kind of error when you have uploaded any new theme or installed new addon like plugin. The error seems to be complicated but it’s not that complicated and could be fixed.

PHP.ini is important file which needs to be modified for memory limits. The file is located in ‘public_html/’directory for PHP5. You need to open this file in text editor which can allow you to edit content. Some hosting providers do not provide access to PHP.ini file. In this case, you need to contact them and ask for increase in memory limit. Once file is opened with text editor, try to locate memory limit using (ctrl+F) keys.

memory_limit = 32M; Maximum amount of memory a script may consume (32MB)

You just need to update the value in above line. It always better to update value to higher number upto 64M. Updating it to 64M can help to resolve many requirements. After changing value, save changes and update it to PHP.ini file. You also need to make changes in wp-setting.php. This file can be found on directory where WordPress is installed.

Define (‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’32M’);

Search for memory limit and update the same value here. Once value is updated, do not forget to save the file. Now, you can check you blog whether it’s working or not. I hope this article helps you to resolve such kind of error.
