In this technological world, where development of science is at the highest level, if there are brilliant developers, there can be brilliant hackers too. So before making a website, its more necessary to decide its security measures. Security is the first concern for every developer. Below are five important tips to create a safe and secure website. 

1. License Based Framework: 

The software framework is a one kind of code-customization which being built up through different functionality that can be re-written through additional supportive codes based on programming requirements. If a person thought of creating a website for his business, the first thing he need to think about is the software frameworks.i.e which programming language he/ she want to use in order to make the site. It is necessary to use a framework which possesses license. As unlicensed frameworks may have a risk of getting hacked. So framework should be wisely chosen before making a website. 

2. Create Strong Credential 

A Credential of any web platform should be complex wherever it is, either social media account, or any server or website admin. It is crucial, but the security is equally important. Passwords should be stored as encoded qualities. Utilizing this strategy means when you are confirming clients, you are just comparing the encoded values. For additional security, its smart to salt the passwords. Creation of strong password not only lead to anti-hacking measures, but also lead to essential security towards your web programming efforts. 

3. Use Trustworthy Web Development Tools 

A website development tool helps the programmer to test and debug their code, error correction and further helpful to enhancement of web application programming modules. While developing a website, the developers need to use many development tools to create a better web customization. For creating a secure website, they should rely on trustworthy web-based tools. Before using any tools, developers should be aware whether the quality assurance of the tools is free, paid or license-based. 

4. Regular Version Upgradation 

Ensuring that you keep software updated is a key towards the security of the website. Updating is required for both, a server making framework and any product you may run on your site. When there are security gaps found in programming, hackers are ready to misuse them. So updating the Word Press plugins and other add-ons version is necessary for securing website. Latest version upgradation of any frameworks, modules, plugins and add-ons help developers to prevent from the hackers by triggering up their SQL injections and any other phishing hacking methods. 

5. Create Hack Proof Code 

A developer should create a hack proof code in terms of quality of that code to provide better security of the site. Web Programmer should implement unique strategies with the help of the latest tools and technology for coding, designing and other programming functions. Quality code should involve proper validation, less coding errors, and it should not contain too many unnecessary lines. 

A  developer should test his code with senior tester, developer, and other skilled professionals to keep maintain programming standard. A Programmer should use web-based testing tool for proper HTML and CSS validation (Ex: The W3C Markup Validation Service). Apart from coding developer should keep practice of strong database creation (Database Authentication Method), encryption and decryption programming tools, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for data exchange between client and server side, cross-browser compatibility and compatibility to all operating system (OS) to lessen the hacking threats. 

These are a few that we have put into practice. What are some practices that you have done that worked or have not worked email us at info@greatlike.com. We want to hear from you.
