^^^ what he said ..I had a site on a shared hosting package on a server that was hacked about 10 years ago..the experience and the fact that the hackers left their tag..allowed me to follow them to a forum ..where I found them discussing how it was done..
I had trusted my host at the time to have done the job of securing the server properly ..they had not..
I moved host overnight .. taught me a lot ..about people selling hosting packages who have no tech knowledge at all, just a point and click interface..and who allow all kinds of crap on their servers ..with no idea how to protect them ..or who just don't really care ..
Same goes for DNS..
Nowadays..I want people who rent me servers or space who I can phone 24/7/365 ..and who answer the phone with the company name that sold me the space and the bandwidth ..Not some "open a ticket"..send an "email" outsourced support that deals with multiple "hosters"..
A "deface" is "a wake up call"..that a door was left open ..that others may have already been through, in the past, silently ..or might have been able to, in the future, silently, without you ever knowing.
