Testimonials

I was told about GoHosting by a very high ranking dating industry directory who mentioned the importance of speed in the dating industry. I liked the fact that support and admin were in Australia and their prices were great. My site has been noticeably quicker since moving my site to GoHosting and the support my developer was given when migrating was second to none!

Posted 20 July 2012 by Alan Dawe

Do i need Anti-Virus Protection? or Malware Protection If so which one?

Recently there has been a large amount of Malware infections on PC's all of the world, those resonsible for this type of malicious software is getting smarter and smarter making infection more likely.

There are lots of different types of Malware, Spyware, Trojans, Viruses, Adware, trackers and other malicious software that can harm the operation of your computer and even steal your personal information like Bank Details or your Web Hosting FTP Details. To minimise the risk of infection we recommend running at least one type of Anti Virus protection on your computer/s. All of the computers in our office run at least two copies of AV Protection. The ones that we have found to work very well with minimal interruption to the operation of your computer are as follows:

ESET Smart Security - http://www.eset.com.au
MalwareBytes Pro - http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_pro
Microsoft Security Essentials - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows/products/security-essentials

For more information on Exploits, Phishing Scams and Malware, please visit Microsoft's Security Portal http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/ read more

So in short, yes! We recommend you have at least one form of protection on your computer. Help stop the spread of malicious software!
