Reinforcing the Security of Your Joomla Site

There is not a shadow of doubt over the importance of Joomla for designing a website with dazzling visuals and stout functionality. Over the years, it has evolved as a CMS web development solution that borders on being the very best. You find many advocates of Joomla among developers and website owners, and they have got all the right reasons to voice their gratification with the tool. That said, because of its high resourcefulness, Joomla is also susceptible to attacks by malicious hackers and interceptors. As the golden rule says, “prevent and prepare rather than repent and repair”, there are measures you must take to keep your website away from harm’s way:

joomla  development

  • Stay upgraded to stay securedAs with the anti-virus installed in your computer system, the Joomla software requires regular security updates for it to thwart any possible attacks. Even with the most advanced of software, there are backdoors, and trust hackers to find one. The updates will help you close them gradually. Time constraints may be one of the reasons you aren't not go for updates. But for the sake of setting the records straight, it doesn't take more than a couple of minutes.

  • The security parameters may or may not leap into the sky with updates, so make absolutely certain that you have a back-up plan ready and raring to be executed in the event of some emergency. And do not forget to take back-ups regularly, depending on how much data you put on the website in a day or week. Otherwise, even with the backup available, you might end up losing a lot of critical data.

  • Trust website developers and owners to get tempted by the Joomla extensions, as there is an abundance of them at their behest. Some are provided by Joomla itself, while a countless of them are by third party developers. There is no ambiguity around the fact that these extensions beef up the functionalities, but they don’t have the same impact on the security, rather they might add more vulnerability to the overall setup. To begin with, you can go through the Vulnerable Extensions List for Joomla, which should give you a fair idea about which extensions to keep, and which to remove. Mighty Defender and RS Firewall are fine examples of extensions that go a long way in enhancing the security of your website.

  • Sign-up with the hosting provider which has a reputation in the market, and supports Joomla hosting. Avoid the temptation coming your way from the economical prices of certain hosting providers. A little money saved today might as well make you regret as there is a risk of potentially unrecoverable losses.

  • Get rid of the default passwords and usernames from the admin account. Actually, before you begin with any updates, this is the first step you need to carry out. Do keep changing the passwords periodically. It goes without saying that your password shouldn't be something that is all too obvious for a hacker to judge. So, stop fiddling with your date of birth, if that’s what you are doing at this moment. Joomla Developers may recommend you with plugins like Jsecure, which strengthen the security of your site.

The security of your website must be of a paramount importance to you. With the correct measures taken, the website performance and security can be in a perfect unison.
