What is GoDaddy Website Security?

GoDaddy Website Security is a service that provides a comprehensive, ease-to-use solution that helps to protect your website against malware, hackers, and other cybersecurity threats. By combining the tools that help protect your website and its visitors, you ensure that your business is always safeguarded online. 

Among the important cybersecurity tools that each GoDaddy Website Security plan includes are a firewall (WAF) to block threats, an SSL certificate that helps encrypt sensitive user information, as well as malware scanning to help identify new cybersecurity issues as they emerge.

In today’s ever changing digital landscape, it’s crucial to not only have precautions in place to protect your website, but also the people who visit your website. By, implementing GoDaddy Website Security on your own website, you let the world know you’re serious about online security and doing your part in making the web a safer place for all.

How does GoDaddy Website Security help protect my site?

GoDaddy Website Security acts as a shield to block attacks, and as a layer of defense for your website. From malware to other cybersecurity threats, GoDaddy Website Security is designed to find and eliminate threats before they ever become a problem.

Detect and Remove Malware

You site is scanned daily for malware on both the front end and server level of your site, ensuring nothing goes noticed.

CDN Performance Boost

With a Content Delivery Network (CDN), your site is stored on multiple servers, speeding your website up by as much as 50% for faster load times.

Google Blacklist Monitoring

Sites that are compromised may get blacklisted by Google to keep people safe from visiting them. With blacklist monitoring, you will be able to keep your site off this list.

Brute Force Protection

Brute force attacks result from bots or hackers attempting password combinations until they are successful and can access your system. Stop these attacks right in their tracks.

Injection Prevention

This can happen when an attacker exploits flaws and adds malicious code or data into a website in effort to gain access to, and steal information in your database.

Zero Day Prevention

New online threats are always emerging. When a defense patch has not yet been released for a new threat, attackers may attempt to take advantage of the vulnerability.

Distributed Denial of Service Prevention (DDoS)

DDoS attacks happen through malicious attempts to overwhelm your website with a flood of internet traffic, disrupting normal traffic and potentially causing inaccessibility.

Web Application Firewall Protection (WAF)

With GoDaddy's Web Application Firewall (WAF) protection, you ensure malware and other threats are intercepted and stopped the moment they are discovered near your site.

Cross–Site Scripting Prevention

Also known as XSS, these common attacks send user-supplied data to a web browser without validation, allowing attackers to hijack traffic and gain unauthorized access to data.

Trusted by customers everywhere

Give yourself peace of mind with complete protection.

The truth is, all websites face cybersecurity threats and attacks from time to time. Sites without security measures in place are more vulnerable to being affected by these attacks.

With GoDaddy Website Security backed by the power of Sucuri, safely securing your website is easier than ever. Experience peace of mind knowing that your site is being monitored and automatically scanned daily for incoming threats to your site.

If and when threats are discovered, they are removed and eliminated, keeping your site safe and clean.

GoDaddy Website Security FAQs

With GoDaddy Website Security, your website is scanned and checked at different intervals for malware and other cybersecurity issues negatively affecting your website. These include checkpoints such as uptime, server state, as well as if your website is blacklisted. If any issues are discovered when your website is scanned, your website will be cleaned and you will be notified with an alert along with a suggested course of action to resolve all other security issues. So not only is your website automatically protected, but you are alerted immediately for any cybersecurity threats that require attention.
Under all plans, your website is scanned at least once a day. However, depending on your plan, you may choose to have your site scanned at 12-hour intervals, 30-minute intervals, or once daily in frequency. In the event any threats are found that require attention, you will receive a notification through email.
During the cleanup process, GoDaddy Website Security will backup and retain files that are modified for a short period of time. However, for a more complete solution for website backup and data protection, see Website & Data Backup plans.

Pricing for GoDaddy Website Security depends upon the plan you choose and ranges from $5.99 per month to $26.99 per month.

Here are the individual prices for each available plan:

A WAF is a cloud-based firewall that acts as the first line of defense for the cybersecurity of your website. It helps protect your site by screening traffic and defending against threats like DDoS attacks, SQL injections, as well as other types of spam.
If a website has already been compromised, or hacked, it’s not necessarily too late, but it is best to try and resolve the issue sooner rather than later. Because of this, the Premium plan is going to be the best and fastest option to resolve issues for sites that have already experienced some sort of cybersecurity breach.
With all GoDaddy Website Security plans, your SSL certificate is built directly into the Web Application Firewall (WAF) that is part of your overall plan.
Yes. While an SSL certificate does add a layer of security to your website by establishing a secure connection and protecting user data through encryption, it doesn’t protect your site against other common cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Adding a Website Security Service onto a website that has an SSL certificate is the best way to ensure your site has well-rounded cybersecurity protection. You ensure defense against malware, SQL injections and DDoS attacks – all things you don’t on your website.

Yes, GoDaddy Website Security is meant to be both simple to set up and use. From a single dashboard, you can do everything from setting up your SSL certificate, monitor your site for malware or other online threats, and manage your website’s scanning frequency.

Yes, it will. Even if your site is hosted with a different company, GoDaddy Website Security will still be compatible in the majority of cases. In addition, whether your website is built on a CMS such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, or is custom coded, GoDaddy Website Security will still provide protection as normal.

A CDN is network of proxy servers and data centers that are geographically distributed globally. The benefit with content delivery networks is that they allow your site to load on servers that are closest to your visitors, geographically. Because of this, your site will load faster as a result.

For example, if your website is hosted on the west coast, but someone on the east coast visits your site, it will load just as fast for that visitor on the east coast as it would for a visitor on the west coast because the site will load on a server that is closer to that visitor on the east coast.
