Website Security Services
Your company’s website needs protection just the same as your home PC does. Websites are targeted by hackers, identity thieves and viruses every day. This has made it necessary for businesses to invest in website security. Website protection teams around the world find and prevent thousands of dangerous attacks on web servers. If you do not have comprehensive security for your web servers, you are already running a security risk.
It is too late to invest in website security after someone infects your website with a virus or hacks it. By then, they most likely have found your personal login information to the server you use. If your site is hosted, it is still possible for someone to hack into your website. Hackers may have been able to log into your FTP program and fiddle around with your web coding.

Most frequent questions and answers
When it comes to your security, no website is too small to hack. It’s always better to be proactive than reactive. Meaning, we highly recommend you secure your website before a compromise occurs. This is important since websites experience an overwhelming 58 attacks per day, per website on average! Let this blog, “Why Do I Need Website Security?” help answer your questions.
Why are website backups important? Backups provide an easy way to save a copy of a website, including files and database. With a single click you can then restore your website in the event of accidental or malicious data corruption.
It’s a common misconception that hosting providers protect the websites they host. Your web host only protects the server your website is hosted on, not the website itself. Think of it like an apartment building: Property management takes responsibility for securing the building, but each tenant must lock the door to their own apartment. That said, if your website is compromised, it will likely be suspended by your host and temporarily taken offline. SiteLock can help.
Update your CMS (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc.), themes and plugins on a regular basis. Outdated themes, plugins and CMS are one of the main reasons websites are hacked.
Clean your hosting account regularly to decrease the risk of vulnerabilities and exploits. You can clean your account by removing all old code, unused user and FTP accounts, and unused files and domains.
Never leave a backup of your website on the same server.
Frequently update your password to combine uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols.
An SSL certificate is a great first step to a secure website. It decodes information passed between your site and its visitors to help prevent data theft. However, you still need to protect your site from defacement, theft or resources and other attacks.

If your website is blacklisted by Google and is displaying the following warning, ‘This Site May Be Hacked,’ we will submit your site to Google for de-blacklisting once cleaned. Please note that it could take Google up to 72 hours to remove this warning and de-blacklist your website. Please note that SiteLock has no control over the timing of this process.
If your hosting account is suspended, we will not be able to request a Google review until your account is reactivated. Please contact us once your hosting provider reactivates your account.
