Website got hacked: .htaccess edited


Last year before Christmas when I tried to view my website I got an 404 error on some of the pages, I investigated the cause with the help of my web hosting provider I found out that my .htaccess got edited on every folder of my site. I asked my web hosting provider to reset my cpanel while I am checking all my backup files before restoring my site. I chdcked every PHP files and every folder and it took me 2 days to check it and took me another 2 days to restore my website and enhance my websites security as well. I am glad that it is fully restored right now, i really thought hackers won’t take any interest with my website because it is just an ordinary blog site and didn’t put up good security but i was wrong. Anyway, for those who have website like mine please enhance your security.
