Tips and tricks on protection from hackers
  • Always opt for paid hosting rather then free one, as it will reduce the chances of hacking. (I am not contradicting any free host in this case, but am talking in a normal way.)
  • If possible arrange domain and hosting from different providers. It is because even if one gets hacked, one can get the hack in control. (Like in my case)
  • Always stay vigilant on your website. Your website is a result of your hard-work for the enlisting on search engines, etc. Don't take it lightly. It is your global presence over the WWW.
  • If you are not able to cope up with the problem, kindly contact the police and the relevant cyber authorities or even your competent IT specialist friend.
