Here are some basic security tips for a shared hosting server:
* It is important to ensure that your local machine is safe. For doing this, use reliable and updated antivirus software like Microsoft Security Essentials.
* Update all your web applications on a regular basis. This includes components, modules and addons that you have integrated.
* Select strong and complicated passwords for the cPanel account, FTP, MySQL and mail users. Avoid using the same passwords for different users. It is also important to ensure that your cPanel username and password should not be saved in any file of your account.
* Do not use directories having permissions above 755. In case your applications warrants the use of such directories, place them outside your web root (public_html) or you can even place a .htaccess file in them that contains ‘deny from all’ for restricting public access to these files.
* Make use of secure and encrypted connections while logging into cPanel (https://yourdomain.com/cpanel).
* Tweak the local PHP settings for improved security. For doing this, disable the unnecessary options and functions. Below mentioned are some sample recommendations:
disable_functions = proc_open , popen, disk_free_space, set_time_limit, leak, tmpfile, exec, system, shell_exec, passthru Note that the directives mentioned above can hamper your code’s functionality. They have to be added in a php.ini file in every directory where you would like to apply them.
* Deny Pearl and other bots from accessing your website. This can be easily implemented by applying the following rules in your .htaccess:
As the name suggests it simply redirects the website to other domain as required.
1. Domain name redirects on DNS level by using CNAME records. CNAME stands for Canonical Name & it specifies that the domain name is an alias of another, canonical domain name.
2. PHP & HTML redirects – Instead of .htaccess file you can use PHP or an HTML file to perform actual redirection. Using these re-directions, you can set delay before the URL’s are being redirected.
For PHP, create a file (index.php for example) and add the below lines in it:
For HTML, create a file (index.html for example) with the following content:
In HTML, you get the option to delay the redirect by increasing the value of CONTENT variable. If you set CONTENT=3, it will delay the redirect for 3 seconds.
3. You can also use .htaccess files under the DocumentRoot for the website and set the redirects.
The process of setting & redirecting multiple or a single domain to your primary domain or pointing one domain to another is called as Domain Pointing. It can be deployed to point a domain to a specific directory or folder of another domain/site. For example, pointing http://yourdomain.com to http://testdomain123.com/testpagefor/. Here exampledomain.com can be seen pointing to /testpagefor directory of http://yourdomain.com.
Domain Pointing helps in maintaining two dissimilar and different web sites within a single hosting account thereby reducing the hosting charges.
This useful convenience can be rolled in a few ways as described below one-by-one.
