WHMCS, which has headquarters in Houston, Texas, United States, was established in 2005. The company bills itself as “the world's leading online billing and automation platform for web hosts and domain registrars”. It offers an integrated platform that allows web hosting providers to automate operations.

WHMCS also offers API integration with “leading web hosting control panels, domain registrars and related web services, and many more apps” to provide services to around 45,000 companies globally.
The partnership makes SiteLock the first website security provider to “be integrated into the WHMCS MarketConnect platform” and gives web hosting companies that leverage WHMCS access to SiteLock’s security solutions. These include “malware protection and remediation solutions” such as SiteLock’s ‘Find’, ‘Fix’, ‘Defend’, and ‘SiteLock 911’. It also provides access to a Web Application Firewall (WAF) that offers a Content Delivery Network (CDN).
"As cyber threats continue to rise and make headlines, security has become a top priority for web hosting companies and their customers," explained WHMCS’ CEO, Matt Pugh. "Partnering with SiteLock enables us to expand our portfolio of MarketConnect cloud service offerings, and gives web hosts access to affordable, industry-leading website security solutions with all the automation and convenience the MarketConnect platform offers."
