Hi Morgan

The data on your site is secure in that no one can edit it other than you (unless you share your login details with someone else)

Can you tell us a little more about any other security concerns you might have.

Also, you might find this post by our VP of engineering helpful:

Hi, but what about the javascript codes that people insert into the address bar and they edit everything they want and then they can save it with something on firefox. Thats not good. I also wish we can have SSL's because we have a login page and we would like it to be https:// not just http://

Hi,

The answer is that your site is as secure as it is technically possible to make it.

The fact that it is a free service does not inform how we approach security (or any other hosting issues like uptime, speed of availability). You are a customer and we treat as such - whether or not you pay us something. We do the best job possible and devote many hours of some the best engineers in the industry to making sure your sites are secure and most importantly, available.

That having been said, places like government agencies and banks are sometimes attacked by malicious hackers, so if someone with a lot of resources wants to target you through electronic crime anyone is a possible target.

But as Monique alluded to in her response, the weakest point of our or MySpace or Facebook or your online banking platforms is your username and password. So you should keep that safe and secure.

And rest assured that you are backed by leading security measures and engineers who are constantly looking at ways of keeping things secure.

The only problem is that there is JavaScript out there that people can put in the browser address bar and then edit it and then save it with some extension on Firefox. I do not like that at all!

Also, I am using a website that emails me whenever my DNS or my website goes down! (Also, it does SMS!) I will tell you the url if you request it. I don't want to link to other sites because it might be considered as spam. But, it actually just emailed me because the DNS of my website is down! It checked in 2 locations and if it doesn't load the website in both of the locations, it alerts us by SMS or email!
