What is SiteLock?

 

100s of websites are blacklisted by Google every day! Keep your business off this list.

Most website owners only think about security after their site gets hacked and blacklisted by Google. Be proactive and prevent disruptions to your business. Clean up your site fast with instant alerts and an easy-to-use dashboard that clearly identifies issues and helps you locate them.

SiteLock helps protect more than just your website; it can protect your business too. Your online reputation and the security of your website are critical elements to your business. There have never been more threats to your website than now. Hackers use malware, SQL injection, cross-site scripting and more sophisticated techniques to steal your customer data or redirect your traffic, ruining your site's reputation.

How does SiteLock work image
Webafrica security vs SiteLock image.

Webafrica security vs SiteLock?

You are probably asking yourself, "Surely it's Webfrica's responsibility to look after the security of my website?" Think of it like this, Webafrica gives you the house to rent (hosting) and either you or your web developer is responsible for decorating it (your website).

You also need to make sure that you have an alarm system (SiteLock) installed to prevent any intruders. While Webafrica protects the server (hosting) environment, in most cases websites are hacked because of vulnerabilities in their code, such as outdated plugins or CMS software.

How quickly are issues resolved?

If you turned "auto-clean" on in SMART configuration, then the fix is instantaneous, and SiteLock will upload the file backup to your site upon completion. If auto-clean is off, then you have the option of fixing it by clicking a button or cleaning the site yourself based on the scan report that you’ll see in the detail screen.

SiteLock how long for a scan to complete image.

How long does a scan take?

This depends on the size of the site and how many files there are. Each file is scanned rapidly, and the actual scanning happens on SiteLock's server, so the total wait you experience is: time to download + time to scan + time to upload.

 
 

Is SiteLock a trusted brand?

Definitely, you are in great hands. Some of the biggest companies in the world rely on SiteLock to protect their websites.
