In fact, your website probably has already been attacked. You just didn't know it because common analytics tools (like Google Analytics) don’t pick up such attacks. Moreover, while these attacks may have failed in the past, without an effective solution in place, there is nothing to keep hackers from trying again – and succeeding.
Yes From your Incapsula dashboard you can choose to disable and enable Incapsula anytime you want. When Incapsula is disabled, visitors will not pass through Incapsula and will reach your website directly.
No. Incapsula has a distributed network of datacenters (POPs) that ensures that every user and website are serviced by the closest POP. This is the same principal technology that is used by most of the large websites to accelerate the delivery of their content through a Content Delivery Network (CDN). Furthermore, Incapsula will make your site run faster and consume less computing and bandwidth resources by caching site data and applying other acceleration techniques.

WAF and PCI Compliance
Incapsula is certified as a Level I PCI Service Provider, which means that Incapsula is today the only affordable PCI certified cloud Web Application Firewall & CDN.
Incapsula provides every website, regardless of its size, with enterprise-grade, PCI-certified Web Application Firewall (WAF), ensuring your web application is safe and available. Incapsula’s Web Application Firewall’s (WAF) threat detection models leverage experience gained by parent company Imperva over the past eight years leading the WAF market. This core competency has been integrated into our new platform which is optimized to support a cloud-based delivery model that enhances security via real-time centralized collaboration.
Our WAF protects from the latest web threats: sophisticated SQL injection attacks, cross-site scripting (XSS), illegal resource access, remote file inclusion, comment spam and all other OWASP Top 10 Vulnerabilities. Learn more about Incapsula's WAF.
CDN and Optimization
Incapsula caches web site content on its proxies in order to return resources faster to users and reduce page load time, bandwidth and server load. Incapsula does not only cache static content but can also identify content dynamically generated by the application, which can be cached while it remains unchanged.Compression:
An average website page is 100KB to 500KB, depending on its content, structure, functionality and the resources it contains. For content-rich applications, the simple task of transferring the page to the browser can take a long time. Common web servers and browsers support content compression. Configuring the compression of resources on your web server requires complicated settings, technical expertise, and substantial processing power from your web server. Incapsula compresses this content for you, even when sent uncompressed from your server.Minification:
Minification is the process of removing all unnecessary characters from source code, without changing its functionality. These unnecessary characters usually include white spaces, new line characters and comments, often used to add readability to the code but not required for its execution. By removing these characters, Incapsula minimizes your website's size, making it lighter and reducing loading time.
Yes, you can still use another CDN provider with Incapsula. However, since Incapsula has all the functionalities of a CDN and all the website security capabilities, we advise you to use Incapsula instead of your current CDN.
No. By using Incapsula your hosting will stay the same. The only thing you are changing is the A record and a CNAME in your DNS records.
When you add your site to Incapsula you get a CNAME for your subdomains (www.example.com, blog.example.com) and an IP address for your top level domain (example.com). You will be instructed to replace your exiting DNS entries for those domains with the entries you received from Incapsula. In order to make these changes, all you need to do is log into your DNS management console. If you are using one of the popular DNS management services (GoDaddy, 1&1 Hosting, etc.), we have prepared step by step instructions on how to make the necessary changes.
Your DNS records direct your visitors to your web server IP. In order to start routing traffic through Incapsula and enjoy our security and acceleration services, your DNS records should instruct visitors to send requests to the Incapsula servers. By making two simple DNS changes, your traffic will first be filtered by Incapsula and then forwarded to your web server. There will be no down time during the transition.
In order to support SSL traffic, Incapsula needs to host an SSL certificate for your site on each one of our proxies. Incapsula has partnered with one of the leading certificate providers, GlobalSign, and implemented a simple and automated process for generating certificates. Currently, Incapsula offers this service at no additional charge for plans that support SSL traffic (Personal, Business and Enterprise). If you are using this service, your visitors will see the certificate we generated for your web site.
Our Enterprise plans also include the option to host your existing certificate on Incapsula (for example your EV certificate).
Yes.When adding an SSL site, Incapsula will lead you through a simple process of supporting SSL.
Incapsula will automatically identify when web sites that support SSL traffic (HTTPS) are added to the service.
In order to enable Incapsula to support SSL traffic for such web sites, we will need to generate a certificate for your domain that will be hosted on our servers. In this process you are requested to approve the creation of such a certificate by our certificate provider.
The process of adding SSL support involves three simple steps:
1. Within 24 hours of adding the web site you will receive an e-mail from GlobalSign, our SSL certificate provider, requesting approval to generate an SSL certificate for your domain. To approve this request simply reply with "yes" in the message body.
2. After your approval Incapsula will provision the service to support SSL on your domain. This process can take up to 24 hours.
3. Once the process is completed, you will be notified through an e-mail and you will be able to proceed to the final step of adding your website to the Incapsula service
You can also choose to add your web site to Incapsula without SSL support. However, any user that browses your site using SSL may receive a warning from his browser.
Absolutely not. We make sure you won't lose even a single visit
Once you choose your plan from our Pricing & Signup page, you'll arrive at the sign up page, where you will submit your details and open an account.
Once you open an account, you will be asked to submit the domain URL of the website you want to add to Incapsula's service. We will then scan your DNS records and provide you with instructions to change your DNS records. Once you complete the DNS records change, some of the traffic to your website will start routing through Incapsula's network of servers, and within up to 48 hours all of the traffic will route through Incapsula's network of servers.
