Why will an SSL certificate not suffice?

An SSL certificate is used only to encrypt a connection between the browser and server to safely transmit sensitive information. However, SiteLock actually protects the database where this information is stored, scans your website files and applications, protects from data breaches and spreading of viruses/malware. These functionalities are not provided by an SSL certificate.

How do I configure SiteLock for my website?

SiteLock is a cloud-based service and does not require any installation. Once provisioned for your website, it automatically starts scanning your website using the basic scans.

To use the advance features, some amount of configuration is required:

  • TrustSeal - requires minimal installation

  • SMART Scan - requires user to input FTP details in the SiteLock Panel

  • Firewall - requires addition of an A record

  • CDN - requires addition of a CNAME record

  • Email, SSL
