    Accepted Solution

    The site I gave is checking ports.

    Web-sites nomaly use poort 80 for http traffic and 443 for https traffic
    So if you have a webserver running, poort 80 and maybe port 443 are open.

    Everything has his own ports...If you you use standard guidelines.
    Web 80 and 443
    Mail 25
    For example


    So almost everything is related to ports and ipadressen when you use IPv4.

    Checking of how your web site software handles with bad request or hacking is up to the software.
    The only way is to keep safe as possible is to update your software with the latest upadates and security patches.
