Cleaning your website periodically is very important for optimal performance and to prevent malware and virus. You can scan your site by following the steps stated below:
- Log into your Cpanel using your-domain-name/cpanel. If you do not know how to log into your cpanel, you can check HOW TO LOGIN TO MY CPANEL
- Once logged in, go to the security section and click on Antivirus
- Click on the drop-down link 'Select directory' to select the path you wish to scan and click 'Scan Now'
If there are malicious files and folders on the account, the scan result will list them out so that you can proceed to clean and delete them.
