Web Protection - Websites

View the list of your websites configured in Imperva, or add a new site. The Websites page is displayed when you log in to your account in the Imperva Cloud Security Console .

To add a new site, click the Add Site button and follow the onscreen instructions. For more details, see Onboarding a Site – Web Protection and CDN.

The following details are displayed for each website. The statistics are generated daily and cover the last 7 days, except for bandwidth, which covers the last 30 days.

Name Name of the website. Click to drill down into the specific website's dashboard to view incoming traffic, security events, and server activity in real-time. Configure site settings to meet your needs.
Bandwidth The total amount of traffic served from your website, both from the Imperva cache and from your origin server.
Human Visits Number of visits to your website by legitimate human visitors, typically via a web browser.
Bot Visits Total visits by all good and bad bots.
Threats Threats to your website detected by Imperva.
Creation Date The date the site was created.

Indicates if the website is enabled, disabled, or partially configured.

Fully configured:

Traffic to the website is protected and accelerated.

Partially configured:

DNS is only partially configured and requires further action. The website is pointing to the Imperva-provided CNAME but the naked domain’s A records are not pointing to the Imperva-provided IPs.

Not configured:

DNS changes have not been implemented. Traffic to the website is not completely secured. Complete the DNS configuration to enhance the site’s security.


Traffic to the website is directed to your origin server without being routed through Imperva.


Click the status icon on the Websites page to view more details.

  • Disable/Enable a site. When a site is disabled, DNS resolves the site's CNAME into the origin IP address for the site instead of into one of the Imperva PoP's IP addresses. As a result, traffic bypasses Imperva and is routed directly to your origin servers.
  • Delete a site. Use this option when you want to remove a website from Imperva.


    • Before deleting a website, change your DNS configuration back to its original settings; otherwise you might lose visitors.
    • Deleting a site requires the following user permissions: Modify site settings, Add and remove sites
  • Move Site. If your account has sub accounts, you can move a site from the parent account to a sub account (or vice versa), or from one sub account to another. For more details, see Manage Account Resources.

Tip: Click Export to CSV to download the list of websites in .csv file format.
