Checking For Secure PHP Web Hosting

Post  getaphpprogramer on Sat May 28, 2011 9:33 am

Is my hosting provider's PHP setup secure?

This is a question that should be in the back of every persons mind who has a website. Unfortunately most web hosts PHP installation is just a vanilla installation. This means that your PHP installation could very well be insecure, making your site open to attack.

PHP is a great web based programming language with wide spread popularity and compatibility. However with its default settings it can also be a headache for the very same reasons. Coupled with the possibility of an application running in the same environment that is exploitable, like in shared hosting - you can then have a bad situation without having any holes within your own code.
