Website Security
Website security is an issue to be taken seriously and we encourage all of our customers to be proactive rather than reactive. Midwinter Web Design offers all of it's customers a proactive website security service.

We can assist you with your website security and much more

As a business owner with a website, you need to be confident in your online security so your customers can be sure they can trust you with their digital information and details. This is vital if they are first time visitors to build their trust and vital for returning customers to keep the trusting relationship healthy. Any user who visits a site and sees a security alert message will think twice about trusting that site with their personal financial details. The reassurance of a secure website needs to continue and evolve as time passes. Website security measures are needed to protect your rankings on Google and other search engines. There are many different ways to show your website is secure and here at Midwinter Web Design, we can work with you to bring your site up to date and ensure it is secure across its whole functionality.

The key features of this service cover:

  • Internet security software
  • Regular website backups and storage
  • SSL (green padlock) certificates, for secure communications
  • Stable secure web servers, managed and maintained in the UK
  • Current up-to-date PHP and MySQL software
  • Support and guidance for your website's privacy policy and cookie notification.

Another key aspect on security is using a fast-performing web server. A reliable optimised web-server usually means it is modern, up-to-date and therefore very secure.

Website Performance

With the introduction of mobile and handheld technology such as smart phones and tablets more people around the world can access the internet than ever before. This means that your products or services can be accessed from anywhere at any time.

This is fantastic when it comes to running your business – you are always visible, even when sleeping – to potential clients and customers.

However, there’s a downside – you are also more at risk from malware, ransomware, hacking, scammers and spammers than you have ever been. There are criminals out there who wish to make money on the back of your hard work.

After you are confident your website is as safe and secure as it can be with all of the key security features?

Even minor performance issues on your website can irritate your customers, however, major performance issues – which would include any sense of being insecure - can cause your customers to abandon your website and never return.
