    you need to login as root via SSH and check the logs how the server got compromised and if the attacker was able to get root and install backdoors, or if there is "just" modifications to your website.
    since your site is already defaced, it seems that was all the attacker was interested in (to change your website and display his message). however hard to say without taking a closer look.
    best practice after a compromise is full reinstall of the OS, then reinstall the CMS you used and make sure to update it to latest version. also make sure all its plugins are latest version and check if any of those plugins have a security flaw - just search on google for "pluginname (version) exploit'. otherwise if you don't patch the hole he or someon else will be back soon...

    You can contact your host to check on your site and fix it, usually they'll try to help and fix the issue.

    best way is to contact your hosting provider and ask them how this happened !
    Almost every hosting provider give away free back-up service to recover everything in these kind of situations !
    cheers
