Large amount of data sent over the internet through communication networks from one part of the world to another part every second. Some information may be solely private and the sender or the receiver may not want to disclose it to any unauthorized person but with a common communication network, protection of data and information from unauthorized access becomes increasingly difficult. Hence, internet security is of utmost importance in order to protect any data from misuse.
An owner of a website has the sole responsibility of protecting all its users’ information from other people. This includes protecting the data from other users, which use the same server, and users of the same site. Hence, his prime responsibility is to choose a safe and a secure web service-hosting client for hosting his website. Cheap webhosting that uses virtual dedicated servers may sometimes prove to be dangerous as they are more prone to security threats than the normal ones. It is also of utmost importance that the operating system software that comes to use by the web hosting service provider constantly updates in order to avoid such threats.
Cheap webhosting can also lead to improper software use at their servers, which may add to the security problem. Highly confidential information such as military, emails, online shopping, online bank transfers are made through a dedicated server with a high degree of security and data encryption in order to prevent data access by unauthorized sources.
