Once you are logged into your SiteLock Dashboard, you will see a list of options on the left navigation menu. These options are: Dashboard, Sites, Users, Settings, Account, Help and Support. See the details below for an overview of each of these options.

Dashboard

The Dashboard tab serves as a centralized hub for the status of your domains and website security products, including your website scanner and firewall results. This is the main page you’ll see when you log in.

For details on a specific scan or product, just click the circle with the associated label.

The icons on each circle represent the following:

  • Green check - Everything is in good condition
  • Yellow exclamation point - Something is pending (like a scan) or needs to be configured.
  • Red X - Something failed, or malware/vulnerabilities were found.
  • Grey arrow - Your service needs to be upgraded in order to use this feature.

 

Sites

This page displays all the websites in your account that SiteLock is protecting. If you’ve recently set up a new domain with SiteLock, you can check if the domain is still pending or verified by hovering over the domain.

Users

This page displays a list of users who have access to your SiteLock Dashboard. As the owner, only you can change the users, domains or account and billing information on your account. The other users on your account can only view the site data in the Dashboard, install the SiteLock Trust Seal, and/or open a support ticket via the Dashboard.

Settings

The Settings page allows you to change your security question, email subscription, notifications, and product settings.

Account

This page will allow you to update your account information, such as contact and billing info. You can also access your invoice from this tab.

Notifications

The Notifications section will alert you to any SiteLock notifications you have. For example, if a scan finds malware on your website, you can find this alert in the Notification section. If you would like to receive alerts via email, simply turn on this functionality in Settings -> Email Subscription.
