Performance and Security Audit
Are you thinking that your website isn’t performing as well as it could? Do you have a feeling that something isn’t quite right? We can provide an in-depth inspection of your website that looks into all areas that can affect performance, and make sure that your site is secure from hackers. We report any problems and then map a course of action to fix any problems and to maintain best practices to keep your website safe, secure, and performing to its best ability.
Here’s just some of the technical details we look into for you:
- Webserver settings and configuration
- Users and permissions
- Password strength
- Scan for malware and malicious scripts
- Inspect for compromising code and backdoors
- Review server logs
- Verify your backup and recovery strategy and supporting systems
- We check your database and programming software (MySQL and PHP) status
- Verify SSL certificates
- DNS settings
Ownership and Control Audit
Do you actually own your own website domain and have control over who can access its inner workings? Perhaps your website was developed by an agency who handled all of the details for you, but did they act in your best interest or theirs?
Don’t be held hostage by former contractors or employees that have retained access after they’re no longer part of your company.
Website owners should maintain absolute ownership control of all of the online properties and assets that make up your online presence. For more detail read our article It’s OK to be a (Web) Control Freak.
Our Ownership and Control audits check the following:
- Confirm your domain ownership and who has administrative access to your registrar account
- Verify your website hosting account (including Cpanel and FTP access) and document who has access
- Audit email accounts; both internal and external accounts like MailChimp and Constant Contact
- Confirm ownership and access for Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools.
- Confirm ownership and access to Google Analytics or similar analytic software
- Google My Business and any other directory listing accounts such as Yelp, YP, Apple Maps, etc.
- Your company’s Facebook and all other Social Media accounts.
We offer consulting services to assist you with your Internet marketing as well as specialty retail needs. Consulting is available on an hourly or monthly basis.
