It’s no secret that websites face a barrage of attacks daily, up to 50 on average. But whose job is it to secure websites against those daily threats? Recent SiteLock survey data shows that nearly half (45%) of website owners believe that their web host is responsible for keeping their website secure. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Did you know websites experience around 50 attacks per day on average? Not to mention, 18.5 million websites on the internet are potentially infected with malware at any given moment. Whether you run a personal website, a blog, or a small business, cybersecurity may not be high on your priority list due to limited time and budget. With all that being said, it’s important to protect your website from malware attacks, and the good news is—it can be easy and affordable.
Did you know all the features that make your website unique and engaging could also be putting it at risk of compromise? The reality is, all websites are at risk of attack—and your site features, like plugins, are actually putting you at an increased risk. This is why it’s important for website owners to understand their likelihood of a breach. When you know your risk, you can make an educated and proactive decision about your security.
But how can you find out your risk, and what can you do to lower your chances of a breach? SiteLock created a proprietary risk assessment to determine your likelihood of a compromise. The assessment reviews your site and calculates your risk score on a scale of low, medium, and high—ensuring you’re informed about any potential threats you might face.
Hello from SiteLock, your website security experts. We keep websites like yours safe and secure from cybercriminals.
We understand that when a website attack occurs, it can feel confusing, overwhelming, and sometimes catastrophic. Don’t worry, we’re here to help! SiteLock partners with hundreds of web hosts and will fix your website fast and make sure it’s protected from future cyberattacks.
Let us walk you through the SiteLock experience and show you why over 12 million websites trust SiteLock.
At SiteLock, we partner with the largest hosting providers around the world to secure more than 6 million websites. In speaking with all of our customers, we often get asked, “What is the difference between the security provided by my host vs. the security provided by SiteLock?”
It’s important to understand that your website isn’t entirely protected by your hosting provider, and despite being hosted in a secure server environment, your website is still at risk of cyberthreats without the proper website security.
Merry Christmas from SiteLock! In the spirit of the season, we’ve created a satirical rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas to educate website owners about online risks. Watch the video to learn about some of the most common “gifts” cybercriminals are giving away this year.
As a website owner, one of your main goals is to increase website traffic. Ultimately, the more traffic you have, the more revenue your business generates…right? Well, not necessarily. And we can explain why.
Bots represent over 60 percent of all website traffic, meaning there are potentially more Internet bots than humans frequenting your site. There are essentially two types of bots, “good” and “bad.” Good bots carry out jobs, like search engine crawling. Bad bots represent 35 percent of all bot traffic and perform malicious tasks, like DDoS attacks. Not to mention that the more web traffic visiting and requesting information from your site, the slower it renders.
At SiteLock, we see the biggest shopping season of the year as one of the biggest risk seasons too — at least for online threats. Let’s face it – most of us shop (and many of us sell) online to avoid the long lines and hustle of the crowds, and to make it easy for our customers.
In sticking with the theme of online shopping (and keeping your business and customers safe while doing so), being protected from hackers, and even hearing the website’s story in its letter to Santa practically begging for some attention, we are introducing a fun and informative video about some very real risks that website owners face, and what they mean for their online business. At a time when they can least afford to be exposed.
The content in this custom rendition of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” video is created entirely for educational purposes, taking the approach that even in risky times, awareness is the best form of prevention. A little fun never hurt (so we use that too), but what you don’t know can hurt you, so please be safe!
Enjoy the video! And caring is sharing – so tell your friends!
