Malware can strike at any time. Make sure your site is secure
You’re never immune from malware, regardless of what kind of website you’re running or computer you have. We don’t recommend you take chances – just one instance of a malware infection can wreak havoc on your website and your reputation.
Advanced protection gives you a secure website that is always protected from online threats and vulnerabilities, providing you with peace of mind. And should anything slip through, Website Security will ensure it’s taken care of way before it gets far enough to do any damage to your system.
The easiest way to secure your website
Daily scans, down to the server level, ensure that any malware attempting to infect your system is stopped in its tracks. Website Security also monitors your site for symptoms such as blacklisting and issues with uptime. In the event that malicious software is found, you’ll be alerted straight away.
You can submit a removal request at any time – our expert team is available around the clock with a maximum response time of 12 hours. They’ll quickly get to work on removing the malware and restoring your site to safety.
Don’t compromise on safety. Get extra protection with the Web Application Firewall
Our Deluxe and Ultimate packages come complete with our Web Application Firewall (WAF) which adds an extra layer of security to your website protection. It prevents DDoS attacks and therefore safeguards not only your website, but your entire network too. You can also rest assured that you’re protected from brute force, injection, cross site and zero-day attacks.
Deluxe and Ultimate Website Security will provide encryption from the browser to our CDN. Add even more security with one of our SSL certificates, encrypting your customers’ transactions from the browser through to the server.
Our shared hosting platform is built on the latest server and hardware technology, with distributed resources for plenty of redundancy. With packages starting at £10.99 a month, you can get feature-filled web hosting for your site. And we’ll help you transfer everything over to our servers.
Get the power and flexibility of a virtual private server without the hassle of being your own system administrator. Our Managed VPS packages give you dedicated resources and plenty of space to expand while we manage updates and backups for you. And we’ll help you transfer everything over to our servers.
Everything you need to know about keeping your site secure
If you’ve already been hacked, we recommend you go for our Express plan. This means we can scan your site for malware straight away, and our experts can get to work on restoring your site to safety within 30 minutes of your request.
Your site will be scanned for vulnerabilities every single day. Depending on the package you choose, this can be done within 30 minutes or 12 hours.
We recommend having a separate SSL certificate as Website Security only encrypts data between the browser and the firewall and not between the browser and the server. With the Deluxe, Ultimate, and Express packages, you can implement an SSL certificate through the Web Application Firewall or Content Delivery Network.
Yes, as SSL only encrypts data being transmitted to and from your site. It doesn’t protect against malware, SQL injection attacks, or DDoS attacks. For highest level of security, we recommend adding an SSL certificate to your Website Security package.
If you manage more than one site, you can purchase individual Website Security packages for each site. You can buy up to three at a time at a discounted rate.
Website Security will only work on the domain you specify and all the folders below it. So, it will work on domain.com/blog, but not blog.domain.com.
Currently, the Website Security package is connected to the purchaser’s account and cannot be passed to your customers. A Reseller version, which will allow your customers to access their own sites, is currently being developed.
Our CDN enables dynamic and static caching for your site around the world. This means that the server will load the site from the cache in a visitor’s location rather than the cache closest to you – meaning faster loader times.
DDoS stands for Distribution Denial of Service attack and occurs when a website is flooded with automated traffic. This has the potential to bring down an entire network rather than just a single site. Our WAF ensures that these attacks are prevented on your system.
This occurs when a bot or application is used to cycle through every possible password combination to break into your system. Once they’re in, they can do whatever they want with your website.
This occurs when an application sends malicious scripts through a command or query, to make the site do something it shouldn’t. This is often seen as a SQL Injection Attack, as your site gets rewritten as soon as it’s implemented.
XSS stands for Cross-Site Scripting Attack and this occurs when an application sends user-supplied data to the web browser without validating it as coming from the site. This gives hackers the ability to hijack customers from you or deface your site.
This is an attack that is launched as soon as a new vulnerability is discovered, before a patch is available. This can occur deep in the core of the programming language used to build your website, application, or even your server.
