Dedicated Web Server Security
When it comes to the security of dedicated server hosting, the end users are responsible for any misuse of your dedicated server hosting account, yet most of the inappropriate activities are committed by a friend, family member, guest or employee. Therefore, you must take steps to ensure that others do not gain unauthorized access to your web server account. In addition, you may not use your account to breach security of another account or attempt to gain unauthorized access to another network or server.
As you all know that the password provides authority to your account. Then it’s your responsibility to keep your password at a very secured place. Sharing your web server password and access to your account with unauthorized users is completely prohibited. You should take care to prevent others from using your account since you will be held responsible for such misuse. An attempt to obtain another web server user’s account password is strictly prohibited, and may result in termination of service.
