What is LuckyRegister Website Security?

Website Security is a simple tool for maintaining security on your websites and servers.

Website Security scans your websites for potential security-related issues such as pharmaceutical hacks, redirect hacks, backdoor file hacks, Trojan viruses and many more. If Website Security finds an issue on your site, we will notify you as soon as it’s found, along with the next steps you need to take.

Which Website Security features are available depends on the type of Website Security plan you have.

Website Security Express is a malware cleanup service that removes most malware infections from your domain or website automatically within hours. This includes pharmaceutical hacks, redirect hacks, backdoor file hacks, Trojan viruses, and many more.

  • Most sites are cleaned within 2-4 hours

To owner of http://www…..com,

Starting October 2017, Chrome (version 62) will show a “NOT SECURE” warning when users enter text in a form on an HTTP page, and for all HTTP pages in Incognito mode.

The following URLs on your site include text input fields (such as < input type=”text” > or < input type=”email” >) that will trigger the new Chrome warning. Review these examples to see where these warnings will appear, so that you can take action to help protect users’ data. This list is not exhaustive.

http://www……com/support/

http://www…..com/

The new warning is part of a long term plan to mark all pages served over HTTP as “not secure”.

Here’s how to fix this problem:

Migrate to HTTPS

To prevent the “Not Secure” notification from appearing when Chrome users visit your site, only collect user input data on pages served using HTTPS.

 

If your website is hacked, Things You Can Do…

“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:

  • Use a secure password for your domain hosting. This means something better than just tacking a numeral 1 to the end of your first dog’s name. We have information in Keeping Your Hosting/FTP Password Secure.
  • Have your site scanned regularly. A lot of companies offer tools that will go through your site looking for malicious/suspicious-looking code or activity.
  • Update your website’s software. If you use something like WordPress®, keeping your software up-to-date is the difference between your site running smoothly and having a site infested with malware

By being aware of the threat of hackers and taking a few precautions, you can stop your site from harming visitors and other sites around the Internet.

A trusted site is a website that you trust not to damage your computer.

If you set the security level of your Internet Explorer® browser to High, so that you do not access websites that might damage your computer, you may be unable to access a specific website that you trust. To access the website, you can add the URL of the website to your Trusted Sites list or change your security level to Medium or lower. When using a high security level, you need to add the Web application URLs to your Trusted Sites list.

  2. Click Security.
  3. Click Trusted Sites.
  4. In the Security level for this zone box, check your security level. You may need to do one of the following:
    • If it is set to High, use the slider to change it to a Medium or lower security level.
    • If it is set to Custom, click Default Level, and then use the slider to change it to a Medium or lower security level.

    NOTE: If you are running Windows Vista, verify that Enable Protected Mode is NOT selected.

How to back up and Restore MySQL or MSSQL Databases with our Web & Classic Hosting

If your hosting account has any databases, back them up first. This puts copies of your databases in a directory called _db_backups so you can download them later.

You can back up and restore databases as often as you’d like, however, you can only initiate a restore after any previous backup or restore request has completed.

If you are trying to import third-party MySQL files, see Restore MySQL database from another host.

Backing up a MySQL or MSSQL 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.

To Back up a MySQL or MSSQL Database

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. Click Web Hosting.
  3. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. In the Databases section of the Hosting Control Panel, click the icon for the type of database you want to backup.
  5. Click the Actions next to the database you would like to back up to open its edit features.
  6. Click Back Up.
  7. 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).

To Restore a MySQL or MSSQL Database

  1. Log in to your Account Manager.
  2. Click Web Hosting.
  3. Next to the hosting account you want to use, click Manage.
  4. In the Databases section of the Hosting Control Panel, click the icon for the type of database you want to restore.
  5. Click the Actions next to the database you would like to restore to open its edit features.
  6. Click Restore.
  7. Select the back up file you want to restore by clicking the radio button next to the back up file name.
  8. Click Restore.

You can check on the progress of your restore from the Database Information screen.

NOTE: If a database backup fails, click the option to Re-try the backup.
