Hello Yasodhara,

I would like to take the time to reassure you that your website is safe with Yola. As this is not a downloadable software, it is not possible to be infected with a virus.

By using our service, you gain access to sophisticated scalable hosting system with intelligent load balancing and professional firewall solutions. This ensures that our servers are maintained, configured and administered in the best way that is technically possible to keep your site up and running.

While we do everything we can, you also need to be "web-smart". Don't download anything from a source with whom you're unfamiliar. Keep your own security programs up-to-date. If you're wanting to have forms on your site, consider adding a captcha so that it prevents spamming.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if I have not answered your question and if further assistance is needed.
