Security is one of the primary concerns while launching your Magento 2 website. Whether you decide to accept the data of the credit card directly on your website or on the pages of payment provider - you need to achieve PCI compliance.
Otherwise there’ll be risk of your business getting banned from using payment gateways. And of course that is a risk you cannot afford to take. Hence, building a best Magento Web Design is our definite recommendation.
Let’s take a look at security checklist in Magento 2 servers to give ultimate security lift to them without compromises.
It is quite common that shared hosting is not secure. If you’re hosted with Bluehost, Siteground, Dreamhost, Godaddy,etc. There is a huge possibility that you are on a shared hosting plan and these plans are vulnerable to attacks from neighbour accounts from the similar physical server. Additionally, shared hosting is worst for performance. Shifting away from shared to a dedicated or VPS server will not only provide security benefits but will also increase performance.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux is perfect for running Magento 2. This OS is known for its security and stability. Avoid installing any web panel like cPanel. This will bring vulnerabilities and ruin your performance. Running on the minimal stack is the most secure and efficient approach.
The de-facto standard stack for Magento 2 consists of the following softwares:
Make sure you upgrade to the latest Magento Ecommerce.
With the arrival of libmodsecurity, you can, and should, use NGINX ModSecurity connector module. It is now easy to install ModSecurity to your existing NGINX installation. It is your shield from incoming attacks.
You can find security headers HTTP response of your website. They’re used typically to protect your website from XSS attacks. Make sure you only add the necessary headers to non-HTML files.
Hiding server version information is not sufficient. The best option is having no disclosure of the information done by HTTP headers. We highly recommend using server headers and any other headers as well that directly report of the headers you use.
Setup your web server’s web root to point to pub directory of your Magento 2 installation. This will ensure that the only entrypoint PHP files required for running Magento will be accessible for public access.
In order to complement the previous item, make sure that only whitelisted set of .php files can be run from your web root directory.
You have to allocate a special Linux user account on your server that will own and “run” Magento files. That same user account will be the one that PHP-FPM pool runs under.
