Improve security on my Windows server

I have a website that is hosted on a dedicated server. The operating system is Windows Server 2012 R2.

Four times in the last three months - always on a Thursday/Friday - my site goes down and I am unable to access the server via rdp. My host company - [login to view URL] - have checked the server and found no hardware issues and the outcome has been a server reboot.

I have searched for answers online and the windows logs did point to a very large number of failed audits. I have followed the recommended security changes, but the site is down again and I am unable to access the server.

I am looking for someone to investigate why this is happening and take the appropriate steps to prevent this happening again. Improving the security within the site would also be something that I would like.
