Strong Passwords for your Hosting Account

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

We often get asked what exactly strong passwords are. This might not seem very important to you but it is actually one of the most important things when it comes to security for your website and email hosting. Hackers and Spammers uses bots that crawl the internet to find vulnerable website and email accounts that have weak passwords, they then begin to attack the account by using common passwords and if your passwords are not strong you might soon have a defaced website or a hacked email account sending out nasty spam mails. This could be very damaging for your company reputation. Its better to rather have an impossible to guess and strong password that you cant remember than to have a simple weak password.

For a strong password we recommend using 18 characters or more and other Numbers, Symbols, Uppercase and Lowercase like below.

Symbols:( e.g. !#$% )
Numbers:( e.g. 123456 )
Lowercase Characters:( e.g. abcdefgh )
Uppercase Characters:( e.g. ABCDEFGH )
