Solutions for Website Security

Irish Web Design are please to announce that they have created a series of packages to provide a high level of security to small to medium business websites.

The packages are designed especially for WordPress based information, blog, news and e-commerce on-line shop websites.

Irish Web Design described the packages as consisting of the three S’s: Scan, Secure Survey.

The website security measures involve scanning the websites for issues, securing the site and finally setting up a surveillance system to monitor the website in the longer term.

It is estimated that hundreds of thousands of websites around the globe that are running the WordPress software have been infected by malicious software.

Some of the software infects the computers of visitors, who may find a realistic looking ‘Anti Virus Scanner’ pop up on their computer.

The owner is informed that his machine is infected and this software will remove the threats and provide on-going security.

This ‘peace of mind’ only costs a very modest amount, typically $10 to $20.

This is a scam, the programme is not real.

What the criminals who are behind the scam want are your credit or debit card details.

They may wait a long time before they use the information gained to empty your account of funds.

There are many variation on these scams, including straightforward blackmail: you want your site back, you will pay.

Irish Web Design have researched the issue and designed a solution to ensure that website owners can sleep at night.

While there can never be an absolute guarantee as situations can change very rapidly the system is designed to provide alerts to any suspicious activity.

Contact Irish Web Design if you want your website audited and secured.

E-commerce

E-commerce is defined as being the buying and selling of goods and services by businesses and consumers through an electronic medium. It is most widely considered the buying and selling of products over the internet, but really any transaction that is completed solely through electronic means can be considered to be e-commerce.
There are three categories of E-commerce:
B2B or business to business for example Cisco.
B2C or business to consumer for example Amazon.
C2C or consumer to consumer for example eBay.

It is also called electronic commerce, and some people refer to the sites as shop sites.

Irish Web Design has experience of a wide variety of websites, and specialises in the website design and the Search Engine Optomisation SEO of E-commerce and other websites.

Recently websites have been completed for What Vitamin and Boom Nutrition.

Other websites that contain an element where purchases can be made include Fitness Extravaganza and What’s On Athy.

Boom Nutrition specialises in delivering Fitness Nutrition to all mainland addresses in Ireland.

Fitness Extravaganza, or FitEx for short, services competitors who want to enter Ireland’s Premier Fitness Modelling Competition.
