    Default eCommerce security: the 7 things you should do first

    #1 is something I (and many others here) say over and over again. Choose a good host. Do your homework. Don't base this decision on price. I see so many people cheap out on hosting for their most important business asset and it always ends up being tragic.

    If you can't afford to spend much money on the thing that is responsible for where the money comes in, then you need to re-evaluate whether or not you can afford to be in business.

    In fact, the very first step you take should be choosing a reputable, reliable host that makes site security one of their top priorities. You shouldn’t put your new store just anywhere — making a poor choice could put both you and your customers at risk.

    Easiest thing to do on a host is request their most recent PCI-DSS compliance audit report for their hosting environment (or their provider's if they are a VAR). Several make theirs publicly accessible. And depending on the nature of the e-commerce, a SOC1 report might also be a good idea.

    A good hosting is definitely a must. Sooner or later you will have to the transition. It does not have to be the best hosting out there but choose a good one. Also, for sure I will recommend the best website software along with the best tools and advice. That's very important.
