Over the years AVG has come to be known as one of the leading antivirus solution providers. AVG offers people free trial to try their product, and they keep updating their product regularly. But the free trial is only offered to personal users and not to internet web hosting service providers. The reason for this is that web hosting service providers need a very sophisticated antivirus which is constantly updated to protect the servers.
The application will list all the antivirus protection applications and tools installed on the web hosting servers. Don’t be surprised when you see over 40 antivirus applications installed to protect your website.
Against the name of each anti-virus will be the status. In the status, column will be the clean site, unrated site and in case an antivirus has encountered virus the status will say attacked.
The reason for so many antivirus applications being used to protect web hosting servers is that at any time a virus attack can occur and if multiple antivirus applications are working concurrently, the chances of the virus reaching any website are remote. Don’t forget new viruses are leashed every day on websites. It’s an ongoing battle, and the antivirus applications have to be updated as soon as the antivirus companies are alerted about a new virus. They have to update their applications wherever they are installed.
Web hosting service providers have hundreds of websites using their services, and they cannot be dependent on just one antivirus as that virus may be outdated. Therefore they require multiple anti-virus protection applications.
Go ahead and use the AVG anti-virus tool to check if your website is sufficiently protected.
