Websites hosted on a server can be protected from website defacement and external attacks by properly configuring the servers and requiring authentication for uploading files to the websites. For ad-supported websites, the owners or operators must do their research when choosing whether to allow them space on their website. There should be some kind of written agreement so that each party is protected from adverse consequences, whether direct or indirect(using subcontractors).
