My website has been hacked twice in the past 2 yrs. Both times Google removed it from their index temporarily.
I've read some info on stopbadware.org, but I'm still unclear on what I'm supposed to do to prevent my site from being hacked. It sounds like they are saying it might be a problem with using FTP? I use CuteFTP by GlobalScape. What should I be doing that I'm not doing?
Also, is this a problem that is my fault or my webhost's fault?

I'm not brand new to making websites, but a beginner, so please speak in beginner terms. :) This kind of thing has me confused.
