Most Reliable & Secure Host for Linux/WP?
  07-26-2020, 11:43 AM
Hello world,

I'm putting together a site with some friends in which we offer 8 new cryptocurrencies which we've created. (We have a good brain in the marketing side so we think we can maybe gain some traction?) 

Anyway, I'm happy to talk more about the idea, but I'm very interested in secure hosting. I usually use dreamhost and, well... I get the feeling they aren't very secure.

Can anyone recommend a secure and reliable hosting service? Bonus points if we only have to pay for what bandwidth we use...

If you really want the best security you should look at companies which have 2 things:
- Good physical security.
- Good network/system security practices.
That's the only sort of security a host can provide you, now most (good) hosts/DC's score pretty good on both points.
The most important thing is how you run your server, if it's really critical data encrypt your volume/drives, use Fail2ban or another system to block failed login attempts. Whitelist only your IP so you are the only person that can access SSH, log every request and all the services. (Grafana/Prometheus). Keep your system up-to-date. Virtualization/dockerization can sometimes also help.

Basically it's a lot of work to fully secure your server and even then a 0-day/vuln might be in one of your services/applications and then it's basically game over. Just think about possible attack vectors and try to mitigate them.

And finally I can definitely recommend Hetzner, you could also look at Amazon or Google. A lot of good options in the hosting world, just look at what's best for your use case.
