We use multiple security tools on the server that hosts your website, and while we take responsibility to patch and update the server, operating system and other server applications, you are responsible for keeping your website and your Web applications or plugins up to date and clear of security threats.
Software companies frequently release updates to Web applications, such as content management systems like WordPress® or Joomla!®, and you must install those updates. Old or outdated applications are vulnerable to security threats.
