What security measures does Ex2 use for shared hosting?

Ex2 security measures:

Our servers have advanced security modules (Apache mod_security, Suhosin PHP hardening, PHP open_basedir protection and others) which allow us to guarantee the highest level of security available today.

However, the vast majority of vulnerabilities originate on the user side. It is therefore essential for the user to take basic measures to ensure the security of his websites and his account.

Security vulnerabilites you should watch for:

- Obsolete scripts or CMS. All popular web applications (WordPress, Joomla, Prestashop, etc.) have experienced security issues in the past. You should always update your scripts to the latest version;
- Obsolete extensions. If you have installed any third-party extensions, on Wordpress for example, you need to make sure to keep them up to date (just like your script). Very often, users use old versions of their plugins and these outdated plugins are easily exploited by hackers;
- Weak administrator password. You need to make sure that all of your Admin users have strong passwords. No security measure can help if you have a weak password, it's that simple;
- Local computer infected. Some computer viruses are known to steal FTP connections and access control panels so that they can later be used to upload malicious code to your website. Since it is very easy to infect your computer with this type of virus, it is highly recommended that you have a good, trusted antivirus on your personal computer.
