Anti-Malware Monitoring By Sucuri

You know what’s worse than an “Obfuscated JavaScript injection”? Maybe a “Drive-by-Download”, “Cross Site Request Forgery” or a “C99”. How about Phishing Attempts and Malicious Redirects.

Even if you don’t know what that all means, you need to be aware of the real and present dangers of operating a website. Your brand, your business or your primary marketing tool are subject to attack and damage 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For all the freedom and relative cost-effectiveness of a business website, you need to consider some due-diligence and basic “insurance” against hackers that want to bring down your business or redirect your visitors to their (typically) offshore website.

And like traditional insurance, it can be a frustrating investment…until you need it.

WHOIS – Nobody Make A Move!

Whois is an internet directory that provides information on who owns a domain. It is regulated and monitored by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) which is responsible for registration of all domains. This record contains information about the Registrant (the person who owns the domain), the Registrar (the entity that registered the domain), the dates, nameservers and other similar, and important, information. If at any time the information changes you will be notified.

Domain Name System (DNS) Protection

DNS is a protocol used by all computers to intelligently communicate with each other, it’s part of the TCP/IP protocol suite. Its specific function is to turn a website’s name (, for example) into an internet protocol (IP) address like 123.45.567.891. The name provided by DNS is what humans to read the site name, the IP is what the computers use to communicate.

This monitoring option will monitor the IP address and associated DNS information of Sucuri domain for any changes. It’s rare for it to change, but if it does Sucuri will notify you.

SSL Certification Protection

If you are using Secure Socket Layer (SSL), a secure protocol to transmit over HTTP securely, you are most likely using a SSL certificate. The SSL certificate is returned to a visitor of your site upon HTTPS request. This certificate often contains your site information and, in some instances, company information. If using a SSL certificate this option allows you to ensure it doesn’t change unexpectedly, if it does a notification will be sent.
