We run an automated monthly anti-virus scan on customers website hosting accounts. If any malware or viruses are found during a scan, the owner is notified immediately and the related subscription is suspended. If no action is taken regarding the notification, the subscription is suspended and a second notification is sent to the account owner. This suspension is necessary in order to prevent the malicious files from negatively impacting our shared hosting infrastructure.
Upon request, our staff are able to organise for an anti-virus scan to be run on specific hosting accounts and for an email to be sent to customers with the results.
Email anti-virus scanning on Cloud Hosting
