I don't think this is the right forum to sign up for if this is the information you're looking for...

Sure, it's off-topic, but this forum, in general, is for fans of the games from Frictional Games.
So the chances of a member having experience with opening an online shop is pretty slim, since the forum is not about business at all.

I think, if you need help with your problem I would look into a forum that knows more about this. Perhaps Reddit has a good subreddit for this.

Being happy is the first step to success.

There's nothing wrong with asking, but I see that you only have 6 posts so far, so I got the impression that you signed up for a user simply to ask this question. Since the question has nothing to do with what this forum is, you may not get many (if any) answers of which you're looking for. That's why I recommend asking someone who may know more about this.

If I were to try to answer your question, I'd probably say:

Mudbill Wrote:How valuable is the data that you're storing for you not to be able to put money into securing it? Security is very important, especially with confidential customer data like names, addresses and credit cards, so skimping on that may hurt you in the end. But if you need something free, although I have no examples, perhaps Google have published anything. Any small company I'm not sure I'd trust if they were free. Remember: If something's free, YOU are the product.

Thanks for replying Mudbill. We have been on the internet searching for tips. What i found was InitiativeS, virustotal,WordPress Security Scan and Nikto website scanner were some of the few ways to do this. But of course personal recommendations are much more better than online reviews, because then you actually know that something actually functions. The credit card point you raised is very important. Thank you Smile

Online reviews are fine as long as you base your conclusion on multiple ones from different sources. Never assume just 1 review is correct, but compare across many reviews (around 4-5 or more). That way you can see if the issues listed in one transfers to another, or if the issue was purely for that person. It also tells you if the pros are actually good or just promoted in a paid review.
