Top tips for secure dedicated server usage
If you’re reading this blog post, it’s likely that you’re interested in dedicated servers. This is for good reason – the power you’ll be able to harness through taking advantage of a great dedicated server will be sure to benefit your business. However, some dedicated servers UK-wide and across the world can cause companies to have some security concerns. Rest assured that whether you’re in London or Amsterdam, dedicated servers can be safe and secure if you take the right precautions. That’s why in this blog post, we’ll be running through our top tips for making your dedicated server usage more safe.
1. Backup, backup and backup again
It might seem simple, but regular data backups are something many people just don’t think about on a daily basis. To keep your information safe, it doesn’t matter if it’s being stored in a London datacentre or a private cloud through NL dedicated servers in the Netherlands, backing up your data is essential! Through a good hosting plan, you’ll be able to schedule automatic backups as often as you need. This will, of course, depend on the space you have available to carry out these backups, and how much sensitive data you need to store, but it’s definitely something you need to consider.
2. Check for updates
A reliable dedicated server provider will regularly provide you with updates and patches that help mend any vulnerable areas that might leave your site open to a data breach. We understand it can be tempting to just click ‘install later’, but this simply isn’t good practice if you want complete confidence in your dedicated server and its safety.
3. Choose a trusted dedicated server provider
When starting the search for a dedicated server provider, it can be overwhelming to see the list that comes up with the click of a search engine. The best route to go is to check out the providers that have a track record of happy customers with reviews that back up their resilient network and tight security. Simply choosing the first company you come across leaves you open to more security threats from those who might see big UK dedicated servers or DE dedicated servers as easy prey.
