    Securing a website can take on many different forms. What are you more worried about? people gaining access directly to the files? If this is the case, be sure to keep your FTP details carefully protected and update them every couple of months. Don't hand them out to other people, even those you trust.

    And of course, it always pays to keep a backup of your files off the server. That way if the worst comes to happen, you can reupload them and revert back in minutes.

    Hacking is generally very unlikely so try not to worry too much in the early stages. :)
