Secure Websites on SiteGround

Step by step guide on how to make websites on Siteground more secured. Two most important things that you can do for better security. PROBLEM: You are not forcing it to go to https. Forcing https will force SSL. REALLY SIMPLE SSL Steps on how you should do it in every site: This doesn’t make it harder for people to hack but this makes it easier for people to trust you. Buildwith.com Type in buildwith.com/(the domain of any site you want to know about). You can see if they use wordpress, let’s encrypt etc. You can check it out with buildwith.com. And you can also know that you are not using a CDN. Content Delivery Network or CDN Cloudflare- the most popular CDN. It protects your site from DDOS attacks. With that being said, SG Optimizer can provide you with a CDN by: 1. SSL 2. CDN 3. Go to SiteGround Optimizer. 4. Search and Install “Really Simple SSL”. 5. Go to settings, click SSL. It’s going to tell you that it is not enabled yet. 6. Click Activate SSL. 7. Now the SSL is activated, toggle the options under settings. All of them. 8. Click Save and it will redirect you because it’s now trying to force SSL as it should have been. 9. Visit the site then you will see the lock icon. The most important thing for you and your client’s security. It also speeds up your site and allows you to manage a ton of traffic. If you pay for it, it can serve your images on your server so it’s not self-hosted by you. 1. Go to SiteGround. 2. Click SG Optimizer. 3. Then choose Media Optimization. However if the client doesn’t have a CDN, what you need to do is sign up on cloudflare account for the client then point DNS on cloudflare and it's done. More ways to make your files secured: The most important file of all is the wp-config.php file which has the username and password for your database, everything. Malcare.com – is also a PLUGIN that keeps you clean all the time. 1. Go to SiteGround. 2. Click Site 3. Choose File Manager 4. Click on public_html. 5. Click the key icon which says change permissions.  Always make sure that the files have no right to read, write and execute. It should only be by the owner, which is you.
