    Recently myself and my business partners web hosting company was hacked. Many site where totally deleted. Ourselves we both got hit with "hidden text" which killed our sites on ranking on search engines. We have nearly all our web sites moved to another company with managed hosting for more protection. However we heard their are sites you can use to watch your web site so that if any changes are made you are alerted via email.

    I have heard of http://watchthatpage.com however I was wonder if any of you had any good recommendation of product to watch a site for changes made.

    Something to alert us if someone does change something. Our managed hosting offers a service to watch for removal, hackers etc but not for coding changes. I hope this move has made us save however I would still feel better using any watch programs I can find.

    Thank you for any advice

    well you could write your own to check the page last modified date.

    Also monitor your logs for logins.

    In over 7 years of business i've never had a problem and i always check my logs incase i see someone login that shouldn;t

    That and keep a backup of EVERYTHING!

    Excellent idea!! Now to find that log :)

    I moved host to manage hosting but I still want to watch closer.

    I always keep back-ups with extra copies on CD's.

    Thank you

    how much access do you have to the host server? you say managed hosting, is that chared or just a managed server?

    Also if it is running cPanel of Plesk there is a log in there of all logins etc on the account.
