How to Setup

Incapsula can be used by anyone with a website and their own domain, regardless of the website’s platform. It takes less than five minutes to activate Incapsula on your website – all you have to do is make a DNS change. There is no hardware or software to install or maintain, and you can keep your current hosting provider. While Incapsula is totally transparent, it can be turned off any time just as easily as you turned it on.

In order to take advantage of Incapsula's services, you will be asked to change your DNS settings and route traffic through Incapsula’s network, rather than directly to your web server IP.
