Malware doesn’t discriminate.
In fact, it’s an equal-opportunity menace because most malware attacks are triggered by automation, so that means literally anyone is a target.And if your site does get compromised, and you don't have an immediate response — like GoDaddy Website Security — it can do more than just disrupt your site. It’ll ruin your reputation, and that’ll chase prospective customers away.
Think of it this way: Securing your site is like locking the doors to your house at night. You don’t do it because you expect something bad to happen — you do it because it significantly reduces the risk of uninvited and unwelcome access.

How does Website Security work?Our Website Security scanner checks your website at predetermined intervals for malware, blocklists and uptime so you don’t have to. If we find any problems, we’ll send you an alert to let you know the best course of action. If malware is found on your site, all you’ll need to do is submit a removal request and our expert team will get to work on fixing the problem. Not only does Website Security monitoring protect you and your customers, but it also protects your website’s search rankings by checking a variety of different blocklists and notifying you if you’ve been placed on one.
What’s the best product if my site’s already hacked?
If your website’s been hacked and you need to fix it ASAP, you need the Express plan — with this plan, malware scanning starts immediately. After the product is activated, you’ll need to submit a removal request from the Website Security dashboard. Once we receive the request, we’ll respond within 30 minutes and get to work on diagnosing and cleaning up your site 100%, guaranteed. We’ll also submit a request on your behalf to re-index your site and remove it from any blocklists.
Does Website Security work if my site isn’t hosted with GoDaddy?Yes. Our goal is to make the internet a safe place for everyone. We’re able to work with CMS-hosted sites (WordPress, Joomla, Drupal etc.) or a custom-coded site (HTML, PHP, ASP etc.) regardless of your hosting company.
What is the difference between Essential, Deluxe and Ultimate?The Essential product covers all your basic website security needs. It includes daily site scanning and guarantees cleanup of any suspicious malware found. The Deluxe tier includes the same daily scanning and cleanup, but it also places your site on our worldwide server network (CDN), which means your site is ‘close’ to anyone who visits it, helping it load more quickly all over the world. Deluxe also includes an extra layer of security, Firewall (WAF) protection, which blocks any traffic that it deems suspicious or dangerous.
The Ultimate plan gives you complete website protection, including an SSL Certificate, Website Backup, our one-click restore program and everything from the Deluxe plan — but with a much faster response time. Should any issues come up, just reach out to our special team of security experts and they’ll be more than happy to resolve them.
How often will Website Security scan my site for malware?Website Security scans your website every day. Depending on your plan, you can choose from a 30-minute, 12-hour or once-a-day security monitoring and scan frequency. If any malware is found, you’ll be notified immediately.
Does Website Security create backup files?Website Security backs up any files that are modified during the cleanup process. These files are retained for a brief period of time. For regular backups of your website and databases, contact hosting support at 087 550 2180 to discuss your options.
I have an SSL, do I still need Website Security?Definitely. An SSL encrypts data being transmitted to and from your website — it doesn’t protect your website from other vulnerabilities, such as malware, SQL injections or DDoS attacks. By utilizing both an SSL and Website Security, you’re using a complete security suite to protect your website, your customers and their data.
How does a Web Application Firewall (WAF) help secure my site?A WAF is a cloud-based firewall service that screens and protects your real-time website traffic from threats such as SQL injection attacks and comment spammers, while also thwarting DDoS attacks. WAF only takes a few minutes to set up and is the front-line defense for your website in between Website Security scans.
How does the Website Security Content Delivery Network (CDN) help speed up my siteA CDN is a network of servers around the world that deploy dynamic and static caching so that all content will render fast and reliably. This means when someone in Japan visits your website hosted in the United States, it’ll load just as fast as a website hosted in Japan.
