Hosting Partner Program

Hosting Partner Program

BotGuard is a cloud-based cyber security partner for hosting companies. Reduce your customers’ risks with cloud-based website protection — We selectively block bad traffic in real time, while granting unrestricted access to a website for human users, search engines, and affiliate tools. Our hosting partners enjoy many benefits, ranging from savings in infrastructure costs to generating additional hosting income.

THE PROBLEM — Why Is It Important To Protect Customer Websites?

Bad bot traffic is a growing concern across the web among eCommerce stores and other website owners. At least 36% of web traffic in 2020 was generated by bots, half of which are harmful to websites. Poor performance and website downtime caused by this malicious bot traffic is often perceived as a hosting problem, urging customers to change their hosting provider.

Why Traditional Bot-blocking Tools Are Not Enough

Popular WAFs fail to distinguish between legitimate users and new-gen bots. Bots are rapidly evolving and using sophisticated human-mimicking techniques. Most main-stream solutions aren't effective against new-generation attack tools and advanced bot software.

Professional vs. Home-grown Solutions

Home-made scripts only block the most easily recognizable bots at best, making this a less than adequate solution in defense against web threats. Maintaining such software with consistent updates and support also requires a large resource investment which isn't always a practical solution.

Most WAFs Fall Short Against "New-gen" Bots

Traditional WAFs fall short facing today's modern "next-gen" bots, which use sophisticated techniques to remain undetected. The human-like interactions of modern bots require a high level of intelligence and contextual analysis to distinguish them from real users, which no firewall solution can provide.


CAPTCHAS Only Annoy And Discriminate Against Legitimate Users

CAPTCHAS aren't designed with everyone in mind and can leave users with disabilities feeling left-out. In many cases it kills conversion rates and deters users from visiting your website again. Sophisticated bots can solve CAPTCHAs with 99.8% accuracy, which is better than humans.

THE SOLUTION — BotGuard Server and Web Host Protection Suite

With the BotGuard Server you can reduce your operational expenses by blocking parasitic traffic and reduce your churn by improving infrastructure security.

The BotGuard Server reliably distinguishes and immediately blocks unwanted traffic, providing you with significant savings in traffic and server costs. As a result, your servers can easily handle 15-25% more real requests. We deploy our servers in your datacenter upon your request. This allows you to keep your traffic private and minimize network latency.

➤ Save on traffic and server resources

Blocking unwanted visitors significantly reduces the load on web servers and frees up a lot of resources.

➤ Reduce your customer churn rate

Reducing the load on your servers will improve overall server and website performance, leading to happier customers.

➤ Add website protection to your services

Provide your customers with robust web app protection from hackers, spammers, content thieves, and competitors.
