3 Tips to Secure Your PHP Website from Hackers

by 5Mindz Technolabs IT Services Company
PHP is still one of the most powerful and used development languages. However, no matter how cautiously developers develop the product, some bugs or problems are bound to go unnoticed. In order to not let this happen, and to ensure that your website is secure, here are three security tips you can follow. 

Without further ado, let us jump right in and know ways you can secure your website from hackers. 

Session hijacking
This is one of the most dangerous ways of stealing data. Especially if you are in a finance domain or an industry dealing with accounts, you may be aware of sessions. A customer can pay for a service within a session and if he fails to do so, another session is generated. The purpose of this is to ensure customer data safety. 

Now, a hacker may steal your session ID and gain access to the account using the ID. He/she can validate the session simply by sending a request to the server. You can use HTML special chars in your application codes. You can even reach out to a PHP development company in Ahmedabad like 5Mindz Technolabs. They will help you design the website with the necessary security checks. 

Protect your website from SQL injection attacks 
What do you think is one of the key components of an application that gets targeted by hackers through SQL injection attacks? A database. In this type of attack, the hacker uses specific URL parameters to get access to the database. 

If you want to prevent these attacks, it is wise to use parameterized queries. This not only helps you secure your queries but makes them structured. Structured data is always easy to process. 

Use SSL Certificate
If you intend to get an end-to-end secured data transmission on the internet, you need to implement a globally recognized protocol - HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol). Using this certificate will make your application safe and secure from hackers intruding on your server.
The working of this protocol is rather simple - it encrypts the messages sent and received over the internet. This makes it difficult for hackers to steal data. The stronger the encryption, the more difficult it gets for a hacker to decrypt it. Hence, it is important to implement this standard protocol for security. 

Wrapping up 
While building any website, following these tips is essential. If you have any queries related to website development or are looking for an agency, you can contact a WordPress development company in Ahmedabad like 5Mindz Technolabs. After all, building a website with minimal chances of a data breach is vital as it ensures your business’ credibility.
