As a website owner, one of your main goals is to increase website traffic. Ultimately, the more traffic you have, the more revenue your business generates…right? Well, not necessarily. And we can explain why.

Bots represent over 60 percent of all website traffic, meaning there are potentially more Internet bots than humans frequenting your site. There are essentially two types of bots, “good” and “bad.” Good bots carry out jobs like search engine crawling. Bad bots represent 35 percent of all bot traffic and perform malicious tasks, like DDoS attacks. Not to mention that the more web traffic visiting and requesting information from your site, the slower it renders.

This Week in Exploits: Speeding Up Your WordPress Site

CDNs are great for WordPress sites because much of the post content is static and can easily be cached and served by a CDN. With visitors receiving cached content from the closest CDN data center, origin server load decreases, allowing sites to load faster for site visitors. At the same time, serving a site from multiple data centers makes the origin server more robust. A fortuitous spike in traffic won’t take a site down as the data centers handle the increased load.

Why DDoS Protection Is No Longer Optional

If businesses are to survive the growing threat of DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks, then DDoS protection must evolve quickly and respond even faster. Hackers have no shortage of options when it comes to launching DDoS attacks. In early October Akamai warned that hackers are now targeting Universal Plug and Play devices, or UPnP, to launch their attacks. The firm estimated that there were more than 4 million UPnP devices, from home routers to web cams, that were vulnerable to being conscripted by hackers to launch devastating DDoS attacks.

(Website) Speed is Good, But is It Secure?
