I hope i'm at the right place, please suggest somewhere else if i'm not. I just finished building my website which I hope to launch soon. Im hoping to eventually have high traffic therefore high potential for hackers.

How do I go about properly securing my website? Is there a guide to do this? After doing a little (collectively unsuccessful) google-ing i've seen links about encryption and tools like verisign/godaddy site scanners etc. but are these enough?

I know little php but proficient in html and css. If it takes php or any other programming language i have no problem learning what i need.

Please help, security is the only thing holding me back
