Did you secure your hosting server?

Let’s find out together.

Secure Hosting Montreal

Secure VPS Server, Secure Web Hosting Montreal

There are many companies in the area of Montreal who offer internet hosting for your website and your online applications. Some offer "share-hosting" which you will share the power of the server with others. Again, some can offer you also a dedicated VPS server, but their plan is very expensive. With all these hosting plans, we can have in mind these question to: "what are their infrastructure, the quality of the server, the storage, internet connection...etc."

So now, how to choose the right one for your company, how your business will be effective and secure online. Because after all, putting a website on the internet means exposing that website to hacking attempts, port scans, traffic sniffers and data miners. If you’re lucky, you might get some legitimate traffic as well, but not if someone takes down or defaces your site first.

Amazon AWS Managed Services in Montreal

There's about 21 products at Amazon AWS, solutions for over 15 different industries and today's the AWS Cloud spans 55 Availability Zones within 18 geographic Regions around the world.

AWS utilizes an end-to-end approach to secure and harden their infrastructure, including physical, operational, and software measures. This is one of the reasons why the CIA, FBI, NASA and tons more are currently on Amazon AWS. CLICK HERE to see all the case.

Amazon AWS Solutions can be scalable and provide high-performance for your enterprise. Using AWS tools, Auto Scaling, and Elastic Load Balancing, your application can scale up or down based on demand.

Here's some Amazon AWS products I use for my hosting solutions: Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). Amazon EC2 provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. You define your virtual Amazon EC2 environment with the operating system, services, databases, and application platform stack required for your hosted application. Amazon EC2 provides a full management console and APIs to manage your compute resources.

Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It is durable, highly available, and secure. Amazon S3 also stores multiple redundant copies of your data.

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). Amazon RDS makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable database capacity while managing time-consuming database administration tasks.

Amazon CloudFront. Amazon CloudFront provides a high performance, globally distributed content delivery system. Your application can use Amazon CloudFront to easily distribute or stream content to your users with low latency, high data transfer speeds, no commitments, and seamless integration with Amazon S3.

Amazon Route 53 is a highly available and scalable cloud Domain Name System (DNS) web service. Amazon Route 53 effectively connects user requests to infrastructure running in AWS – such as Amazon EC2 instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, or Amazon S3 buckets – and can also be used to route users to infrastructure outside of AWS.

Encrypted Email Provider & Secure Webmail

Email communications, the first email system was developed in 1971.
Today, we can count around 3.7 billion email accounts. 86% of professionals name email as their favorite mode of communication. And 269 billion of emails are sent every day.

So, with these kinds of big numbers, it will take more than a spam filter and an anti-virus software to secure your communications by email.

Companies with big names offer you a free email account. Remember this, if it's free then you are the product. Also, why would a billion companies give you something free? Did you read the notice before putting your company or private communication on those servers? How secure is your data from your email account, did they encrypt just your login and not your data?

CyberSecurity is not just a buzz word for me.
After two years of research and work I createed a secure webmail and a secure server who encrypts the communication when you login in your webmail. The email data is encrypted on the fly on the server. And your email communications are encrypted with a 4096bit PGP Key.

To make this happen, I need to perform some settings with your domain name, but don't worry I will take care if it for you. I will take care of those DNS Records: Sender Policy Framework (SPF), DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) and Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC).

Some features at a glance:

What else, my email communication doesn't stop here. I can take care of your migration and put the email solution in place for you or your enterprise.

Organic SEO Services in Montreal Local SEO

There are many agencies and freelancers in the great Montreal who offer "Organic SEO Services" but how do they differ from each other? Are they using freelancers for your contract, are they using the same SEO techniques than 5 years ago? And maybe, one of the most important questions in SEO is: What is their ranking on Google Search Engine!

Website SEO Audit Services: The very first thing to do is to perform an audit of your actual website (WordPress or Magento). Then, I will be able to analyze the organic position of your website on the major search engines.

Creative SEO: The user experience is an important process on a website, but the user interface is also very important. Because with the right user interface strategy we will choose not only the right colors but the perfect elements at the right place on your web page.

Local SEO: The technic as changed since a big year because the strategy of Google has changed also. "Google my Business" has a huge impact on your local SEO strategy. It's very important to use all those Google assets, like your presence on Google Maps, Google My Business with these options: Site, posts, photos, information. And of course the optimization of your website!

Onsite SEO Checklist: For me, the onsite SEO starts with an optimal web server, then it's security. Now let's take a look at the right onsite SEO strategy. Let's create relevant content, give them a strong title and wrap them between the right "header tags". Also, let's have some fun with multimedia content and optimize the images. Links and URLs are a major part of the SEO process, so let's use some SEO-friendly URL's. Use outbound links, internal links and don't forget to put some speed! Google will process your website more efficiently if it's fast and secure.

Web Analytics: Stats is the key to success, the good news is that we have a ton of solutions online for statistics and tracking your website. Of course, the most popular one is "Google Analytics". We have also: Matomo, Kissmetrics, SE Ranking and more... What is important to understand here, is each one has its own way to perform their calculations and getting results. Quite often I use two tracking providers, it's important to get all the online perspective.

Antivirus and Mobile Security Services

Take control of your cyber security and protect your personal and financial information on your mobile devices. As our smartphones and tablets become our favorite devices of communication, messaging, social media, shopping, it's essential to take more security measures. M-Commerce (e-commerce on mobile devices) in Canada reached over $ 3.45 billion in 2013. That number was expected to increase by 142% in 2016, according to a study by PayPal.

Cloud storage: Big names in the industry offer you free data storage. Again, when it's FREE (especially when it's your data), YOU are the product. Worst, they try to make sure everything will sync with their servers. And once your information is on their server, they ask you or don't give you a choice to have a dual authentification. The protection is for who at the end?
