Absence of security is an overwhelming factor for any business and the same applies to its online presence as well. Web host plays an important role in securing a website. It is important to protect your website from theft of critical information. A web host provides security through:

1. SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)
2. SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)
3. Secure Backups

These are crucial factors for preventing malicious activities to the website.
