Sitelock and how to configure itSiteLock is like an Anti-Virus solution for websites. You wouldn’t dream of browsing the web without an antivirus would you? Why is that? Simply because when you are browsing the web you are aware that there are threats out there that can be delivered to your computer.

And where do these threats reside? As well as in spam emails, you’ve guessed it; insecure, compromised websites.

That’s why it’s important to secure your website from hackers.

They are always looking for insecure websites to upload their malware. Once it’s uploaded they can then launch it for whatever purpose they have in mind.

If your site gets hacked then your online reputation will suffer. That could mean all or any of the following:

  • Your emails can’t get through because you have been blacklisted
  • Your Website is suspended
  • Google de-lists your website from its rankings

To avoid this you need to protect your website and SiteLock is the best way to do this.

This product acts as a safety net around your website which protects your websites from any kind of infections. Since the vulnerabilities are never ending and new ones are popping up almost everyday, SiteLock is a highly recommended security product to make sure you keep your website protected.
