How can I protect my website by my own efforts? What precautions should I take?
There are a few ways to secure the website.
1. You should regularly update the CMS and all its components. Keep in mind, however, that some updates may be incompatible with each other. Therefore, we strongly recommend making a backup before any update.
2. From a site that is protected by an SSL certificate, personal data of visitors cannot be intercepted: logins, passwords, bank card details and other information. An SSL certificate guarantees their protection.
3. Passwords on the site should always be stored as encrypted values, preferably using a hashing algorithm (eg SHA).
4. Backups can save your site even when there is no hope to restore the project to work.
