Website Security Questions Answered!
Why Should I Get a Website Security Plan?
A common misconception is that only very large and popular websites are the targets of malware infections. The reality is that these attacks are usually automated, working to infect every website possible – all sites on the Internet are potential targets. The inconveniences of having an infected site is a part of a larger problem – it can also ruin the reputation of your business. Using one of our website security plans provides protection and peace of mind.
What is the difference between the Deluxe and Express plans?
In short, the difference is turn-around time. Our Deluxe plan is for our customers who do not have an infected website but want their site monitored and protected on a daily basis. If a manual removal of malware is needed, then these customers can expect a 12-hour response time.
The Express plan is for someone who wants a faster response time (30 minutes). This is especially useful for someone who was not previously protecting their site with our security services, and needs to get the problem addressed immediately. In this case, a hacked site can get put at the front of the line for malware removal and repair – it also includes the year-round protection of the Deluxe plan.
What does a Website Security Plan Provide?
Our website security plans provide advanced protection made simple (no software to install). We run a daily security scan automatically, and if our auto removal tools come across an issue they can’t resolve, then our security experts will step in and repair the problem manually. This is done regardless of how long it takes, and at no additional cost.
The daily scan we provide is also ran at the server level, where the infections can cost you valuable resources. It isn’t just about malware though, we also monitor related services like DNS, WHOIS, and SSL, to ensure your visitors aren’t being redirected or tricked into providing their private information to unscrupulous parties.
Also included on all plans is monitoring Google’s blacklist and resolving any problems that arise. Google will blacklist sites that could be considered dangerous, making it very difficult for people to find you or visit your site.
Users of our Deluxe and Express plans have a preventative measure built-in, working to stop malware before it infects the website. Our Web Application Firewall (WAF) intercepts and inspects all incoming data and automatically removes any malicious code. Also included in our Deluxe and Express plans is the use of our Content Delivery Network (CDN). This stores website content on multiple servers around the world, speeding up a website’s performance by at least 50% because visitors connect to servers that are physically closer to them.
