What’s Website Security?
Website Security provides easy-to-use tools to help protect your site from the most common security threats. After all, your website’s the center of your business, your brand and all the amazing things you’re bringing to the world. It deserves broad protection with all the tools you need to protect your business and customers online.
Benefits of Website Security.
Show customers they’ll be safe on your site.
All Website Security plans include an SSL Certificate — which comes with our Web Application Firewall (WAF), allowing your site to provide HTTPS encryption. This lets visitors know that your site’s trustworthy and that any data they exchange with your site is encrypted, keeping it safe from snooping or exploitation.
Our WAF is designed to intercept and examine incoming data and neutralize malicious code from security threats like SQL injections and DDoS attacks, warding off any damage from being done to your site. Plus, our Content Delivery Network (CDN) provides even further protection from DDoS attacks by restricting access to your site’s original server.
Prevent attacks and fix malware problems.
Prevent attacks and fix malware problems. Take a proactive, preventative approach to the safety of your website. The Website Security firewall helps block attacks on your site while its malware scanner regularly searches your site for malicious content and alerts you if any is found.
Increased speed — coupled with encrypted data — boosts search rankings.
Google heavily favors SSL-protected encrypted sites and pushes them higher in search rankings than those without, helping your business become more visible to new potential customers. And not only does our Content Delivery Network (CDN) protect your site from DDoS attacks, but it also boosts your site’s load time by up to 50% by putting your content on multiple servers around the world, so it’s always close to your customers.
Secure site backup with one-click restore.
Make data loss a thing of the past with daily, automatic backups** of your website. And if disaster strikes, one-click restore lets you reinstate a clean version of your website with just a single click.
Website Security lets you set up your site’s security scanning frequency, install your SSL Certificate and monitor your site for malware and other online security threats — all from one dashboard.
Your SSL Certificate is built into the Web Application Firewall (WAF) that’s included with Website Security.
Yes — while an SSL certificate encrypts data being transmitted to and from your website, it doesn’t protect your site from other vulnerabilities, such as malware, SQL injections or DDoS attacks. By utilizing both an SSL and Website Security, you’re ensuring that all aspects of your site are protected.
Depending on your Website Security Suites plan, you can choose from a 30-minute, 12-hour or once-a-day security monitoring and scan frequency. If any malware is found, you’ll be notified immediately.
A WAF is a cloud-based firewall service that screens and protects your real-time website traffic from threats like SQL injection attacks (malicious data that essentially tricks your site into doing something it shouldn’t) and DDoS attacks (crashes your site by overwhelming it with a flood of automated traffic). WAF only takes a few minutes to set up and is the front-line defense for your site in between Website Security scans.
A CDN is a network of servers around the world that deploy dynamic and static caching so that all content will render quickly and reliably. For example, if someone in Japan visits your site that’s hosted in the US, it’ll load just as quickly as a website hosted in Japan.
