How many websites can I host with one shared hosting account?
Depending on the kind of hosting account you have, you can either host multiple, separate websites or you can use subdomains on your primary domain name. For more information, see What type of hosting account do I have?
Our Deluxe, Premium, Unlimited, and Ultimate hosting accounts can host multiple websites. For more information, see Manage hosting account domains
While we offer unlimited domain aliasing on our Deluxe, Premium, Unlimited, and Ultimate shared hosting accounts, we do not recommend using shared hosting for more than ten websites. Doing so taxes the server resources and hinders performance.
I have anti-virus software. Do I need Website Protection SiteLock?
Yes. Anti-virus software protects your computer from malware and viruses, but it doesn’t protect your website. And while it’s invaluable, anti-virus software can’t detect existing vulnerabilities in your site such as cross-site scripting and code injections. It also doesn’t let you know when security threats and vulnerabilities have been found or how to fix them. SiteLock’s malware scanner does.
Why do I need SiteLock?
Website security is vital to your business success. If people don’t feel safe on your site, they won’t come back. But if you can show visitors your site protects them from hackers and thieves, they’re more likely to place an order or refer a friend.
Once our malware scanner confirms that your site is clear of known vulnerabilities and malware, the SiteLock Trust Seal can be displayed to your customers. Studies show that displaying this seal increases sales by more than 10%, with 70% of site visitors saying they look for a verifiable 3rd-party trust seal before submitting personal information to a website.
How does SiteLock compare to other web security services?
A lot of products can tell you if your website has been infected by malware. What they can’t do is fix it for you. With SiteLock, you don’t have to worry about a thing – our vulnerability scanner checks your website daily, automatically removing any malware or suspicious links it finds (Professional and Premium plans only). It’s like having your own website security guard on duty 24/7.
SiteLock beats McAfee Secure, Comodo Hacker Proof and CloudFlare hands down. In addition to the basics, SiteLock takes your site security up a notch by actually fixing what is wrong. Our Professional and Premium plans find and delete malware, keeping your site running clean and worry-free. SiteLock actually removes the malware it finds.
If I have an SSL Certificate, why do I need SiteLock?
An SSL certificate secures the information passed back and forth between visitors and your website (i.e. credit card information, login name and password) but it can’t find malware or the other vulnerabilities hackers use to break in and do damage.
SiteLock not only finds vulnerabilities and malware, it automatically removes them from your website using our SMART malware removal tool. Our Professional and Premium plans complement your SSL Certificate, creating a hack-proof security strategy.
How many visitors can view my site at once?
While we do not limit the number of visitors that can view your website, we do limit the number of visitors who can simultaneously connect to your hosting account. There’s a subtle difference there because users only count as “connecting” while they’re actively downloading content from your website.
However, as soon as users finish loading a page’s content or disconnect from SSH, their connections are freed up for other users. This means if the page a user’s connecting to takes .1 seconds to fully load, she only counts as a connection for .1 seconds. After that, she no longer counts toward your total allowed connections — unless she clicks somewhere on your site that establishes another connection.
This means, theoretically, a very large number of visitors could be viewing your website at the same time, as long as they didn’t all process the requests simultaneously.
