There are three ways to hack sites.
- Through vulnerabilities in scripts:
If this happens, we will restore your files and delete malicious programs.
- DNS - Domain Name Service
If the DNS server that manages your domain is hacked, your site has not actually been hacked. Hacked DNS redirects requests to your site to another website/attack site. In this case, the DNS hosting company must take the necessary action and restore its database.
There are times when your site is actually all right, however, due to the vulnerability of the server on which your website is hosted, the server itself was hacked and hackers damaged your website. If this happens, we will restore your pages, at the same time, the hosting company must take the necessary measures and eliminate the vulnerabilities of the server.
