Does Malware infect the domain or hosting?

Hello all,

 

I have a bit of malware on my ConcertsCaptured website. I was thinking of keeping GoDaddy for my domain registration but moving my hosting elsewhere to save money.

 

Is the malware likely to have infected my domain or my hosting? Essentially, if I move my hosting, will this solve the problem?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

Danny

Re: Does Malware infect the domain or hosting?

Short answer is the hosting.  Malware is short for malicious software, the domain can not run software on it's own.

 

Though it is a good idea to change your passwords. Also make sure your computers and devices have up-to-date security software and run scans regularly.
