“Hacked” is a term you hear thrown around a lot — especially regarding websites — without much definition.
If your website is hacked, it means a few things:
Someone gained access to your account (typically via File Transfer Protocol, a.k.a. FTP). By gaining FTP access, hackers can insert their own code on your site.
After gaining access to your site, they put malicious code in it. What the code does depends on the hacker’s objectives.
Because hacking can be extra insidious, sometimes your site can get hacked without you ever realizing it. Other times, hackers will be incredibly ham-fisted and either bring down your site or replace it with an obscene message.
Among the other unpleasant things hackers do to sites:
Install viruses on visitor’s computers
Redirect visitors to other sites
Use your website to attack other websites, bringing them down
Now, unfortunately, there’s no LoJack® for a hijacked website, but there are a few things you can do to make sure you don’t fall victim to a hacker:
In the Read-Only User Name field, enter a user name.
Create a password for the read-only user and confirm it.
(Optional) Specify to Allow Direct Database Access. Specifying this option allows the read-only user to use tools such as MySQL Query Browser or Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express to browse the database.
NOTE: If you don’t see the Allow Direct Database Access option, contact customer support. If you are not sure what Direct Database Access is, see Connect remotely to databases
To browse the data on the database, a read-only user has to connect using third-party tools such as MySQL Query Browser or Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio Express.
To test your website’s speed, it’s a good idea to make sure it’s not just your local internet that’s causing the issue. By using website speed tests, you can verify other connections are having similar issues.
Pick a test location near your server (North American customers, pick a server in North America. European customers, pick a server in Europe. Asian customers, pick a server in Asia).
Select your browser type from the list.
Click Start Test.
Things to look for:
If you see First Byte is slow (longer than 1 second), it indicates slowness at the server itself. This could be because of your site’s program code or plugins.
If you see a high number of Bytes in (more than 1,000 KB), then your site requires the browser to download a lot of files before it can display your site’s content.
If you have a Shared Web Hosting account with one or more databases, you may receive an email indicating the server hosting the database has or will change. The change is a necessary part of our continuing effort to improve product quality. Once all of your databases are upgraded, not only will your account be hosted on the most advanced servers available for your type of account, you will be able to take advantage of new product features.
The email will contain information needed to ensure that your site’s applications continue to be able to connect to the database after it moves.
The information in this article contains best practices for configuring your database applications. So the information applies even if you have not received an email indicating your database is moving. Following these practices will help ensure any future upgrades are as seamless as possible.
When your site’s applications connect to the database they must provide credentials and identifying information for the database. The usual practice is to format this information into a database connection string.
The credentials are the username and password you selected when creating the database. The identifying information consists of the database name you selected and an address for the database server that hosts thedatabase. Typically the database server address is the value of a CNAME, or canonical name record that resolves to the IP address of the database server. A database name contains letters and possibly numbers. For example the server name will be similar to mysql123456.secureserver.net orHostedDB1.db.1234567.hostedresource.com.
Whereas the IP address of the database server contains only numbers and will be similar to 10.10.20.30.
To ensure the move is as seamless as possible, it is critical that your application code uses the name of thedatabase server to connect to the database. If the IP address of the server is used, the application will fail to connect to the database after it has moved.
If your application uses the IP address, modify the database connection string to contain the database server name. If you received an email indicating the database server name is changing, the database server name is included in the email. This update must be completed within the time frame indicated in the email to avoid loss ofdatabase connectivity on your site.
If you did not receive an email about the database server name changing, you can find the database server name for all of your databases in the Hosting Control Panel and database administration tools.
The method for determining the value your site’s application uses to address the database server depends on the application. If you have the source code for the application you can examine it to locate where it obtains the address and verify it uses the server name. If you don’t have the source code for the application you can review the documentation or contact the vendor to determine where the address is stored and verify the server name is used.
If your database was set up with a DSN and your applications use the DSN, the DSN already contains the correct server name. No action is required on your part to update site code that uses DSNs.
If your database is an Access database, no action is required on your part to update site code that uses an Accessdatabase.
If you have installed applications from Value Applications then, the application already uses the server name to connect to the database. If you received an email indicating the server name changed or would like to verify the connection string contains the correct server name, the location of the connection strings for the Value Applications applications are described in What are the connection strings for my application’s database?.
You can back up MySQL and MSSQL databases from the Database section of the Hosting Control Panel.
This creates and stores your backups in a folder on your hosting account, _db_backups.
NOTE:If you encounter an error the first time you attempt to create a backup, you should make sure the directory _db_backups exists. This directory cannot be seen using the File Manager, as files with an underscore are hidden. However, using an FTP client you can select the option to show hidden files and directories.
Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
In the Databases section of the Hosting Control Panel, click the icon for the type of database you want to backup.
Click the Actions next to the database you would like to back up to open its edit features.
Click Back Up.
Click OK to backup your database.
NOTE: When you create a backup file using the Hosting Control Panel, our system names the file using the name of the existing database. While you cannot define a filename during the backup process, you can rename a file once the process is complete.
You can check on the status of your backup from the Database Information screen.
NOTE: If a database backup fails, click the option to Re-try the backup.
Restoring a MySQL or MSSQL Database
You can restore MySQL and MSSQL databases from the Database section of the Hosting Control Panel.
NOTE: If you encounter errors while restoring a MySQL database, verify that the Create Databaseline is removed or commented out from the database dump (backup file). Normally you can find this code about 10 to 15 lines down from the beginning. It can be removed or commented out by using a text editor of your choice (Notepad++ for example).
