Hosting your website on a public server vs a private server opens the doors to exponentially more weaknesses. With a public host, such as GoDaddy, BlueHost, HostGator, etc., many web providers, like us (or rather, “Resellers”) have access to the same web server. There are many doors and many keys. (In some cases, there are wide open windows).
In our case, with private server hosting, only we have access to the server. There is only one door, and only we have the key.
Here is an illustration:
Scale this up by 100x/Customer and 20x/Provider. That’s 600 customers going through 60 Provider/Resellers all to the same web server. Any weak link among those 60 Providers means the whole thing is compromised. That’s a lot of weak links.
This is how WE do it:
No scaling needed. It already looks more secure and solid, doesn’t it? Only we have the keys to the server. We wholly control it and have full access. We allow no one else access.
