If your website is hosted on a cpanel, popular for Hostgator and Justhost, there is chance that your site has slowed down considerably. A virus might have attached your site and the slow-down many not be associated with traffic or bandwidth usage.
The viruses make your sites crawl and unusable by attacking your ports, preventing easy transfer of data to your web users. So when they click, they wait for so long before they can see anything.
These are the viruses and you need to watch out for them:
- Document Dropper Agent
They are troubling and very difficult to deal with. This is what you have to do if you suspect you have these viruses.
- Scan your cpanel area with a good anti-virus. Most cpanels come with a Virus Scanner
- Deleted the viruses and make request to your server support team to tighten your ports. This is the most effective way to handle this issue. These viruses attach emails and can sneak in through emails. So, you must ensure that your ports are secured.
