It can be used on an unlimited number of subdomains across an unlimited number of servers. Once the certificate has been secured, all future subdomains and servers will be covered.

EV SSL also requires specific company information that provides potential customers with a clear affirmation of identity.

Windows Servers: Complete Security Protection that Comes Standard

ServerSecure for Windows is included by default on all Windows servers and has all the features you need to keep your Windows server operating at peak performance 24/7/365.


ESET File Security [optional, +$10/month] scans all files that are launched, opened, and/or modified, and disinfects or deletes all infected files. Furthermore, suspicious files and content are quarantined prior to undergoing further analysis. Additional licensing charges may apply.


Liquid Web's custom Malicious Activity Detector (MAD) setup monitors your server to reactively defend against malicious activity. MAD will track your system logs and incoming connections for failed login attempts and DoS attacks. The services monitored include: Plesk, Microsoft FTP, MSSQL, Remote Desktop, and NTLM connections.


RDP over SSL helps increase RDP’s security by preventing "Man In The Middle" (MITM) attacks that intercept data between the server and client. This server gives the client the ability to authenticate a server's identity, which increases the security of your terminal services and enhances the power of your SSL operation.


SYN Attack Protection monitors incoming traffic and modifies the TCP/IP stack automatically if a SYN attack is in progress. It lowers the time-out connection responses on your system during the attack to lessen the effect of the attack, and returns the TCP/IP stack back to normal after the attack subsides.


The latest Windows updates are automatically scheduled to be installed and configured as needed, so you’ll always be sure your server is up-to-date and secure.


Monthly Nessus Vulnerability Scanning [optional, additional cost] proactively detects and solves issues and potential compromises on your server with regular vulnerability scans that search sensitive data, check plugins, and prevent malware attacks.

Security & Compliance Scanning

Keep your servers secure with scanning services

PCI Compliance

Protection From Malicious Traffic

Our fully managed PCI DSS scanning service is an invaluable tool in the PCI Compliance process. PCI compliance ensures that websites requesting and storing sensitive customer information are protecting that data. Without PCI Compliance, your organization not only risks exposing sensitive data to hackers, but could also face fines or permanent expulsion from card acceptance programs. PCI Compliance is absolutely necessary to assure that customer data is protected appropriately.

Starts At $50

Per Month
  • Secure Your Website Data
  • Prevent Security Breaches & Theft
  • Ensure Customer Trust & Loyalty
  • Improve Standing With Payment Brands

How Our PCI Scanning Service Works

The requirements laid out by the PCI DSS vary and many of them can only be completed by your own organization. For the full list of PCI DSS requirements, see our Knowledge Base. While we can not offer full PCI compliance certification, we can be here to help you through the process. Our technicians can help you design and customize your hosting environment to meet all applicable security standards. In addition our scanning service not only checks to see if your environment is compliant, but also provides quarterly scans to ensure services are kept up to date and any new security vulnerabilities are resolved immediately.

Keep your internet property safe

Cloudflare’s enterprise-class web application firewall (WAF) protects your Internet property from common vulnerabilities like SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting, and cross-site forgery requests with no changes to your existing infrastructure.

Self-managed WAFs quickly become outdated and require professional service hours to regularly update rules to protect against new threats. Cloudflare’s WAF helps you stay ahead of threats by automatically updating when new security vulnerabilities are released. Rules created by Cloudflare in response to new threats are responsible for mitigating the vast majority of threats on our network.

Cloudflare offers a single source of control for the security of websites, applications, and APIs, hosted across multiple cloud environments. Multi-cloud security provides visibility into security events, while allowing for consistent security controls, across all clouds in which Internet assets are deployed. Any attack traffic seen by Cloudflare is recorded and analyzed. Cloudflare’s network then shields Internet assets across all cloud providers.
