As a Website tech I get many enquires from website owners saying that their website got hacked and they had to pay heaps of money to get it fixed or worst pay someone to completely rebuild their website.
There is always a fine line between if it’s the hosting provider or website owners fault as many questions come to play as to why it got hacked in the first place.
Was it password compromised?
Who looks after the website backup's?
Was the website regularly updated?
Was the website built with code that was free from insecurities?
Was there a security function added to the website and who monitors and fixes the alerts?
Is your website regularly scanned for viruses.
How often do you actually update your computer, does it have a current virus protector?
These are some questions you should ask your hosting provider and read their hosting terms and conditions.
