Laufton can do a security scan to determine if your site has actually been hacked or if it just needs to be optimized to load faster.
Sometimes these hackers secretly use your website’s resources and install hidden pages that you aren’t even aware of. This can increase web page load times or cause other issues.
In extreme cases, this can result in your web hosting company suspending your account and shutting down your website!
