CodeGuard Automation

When ordering CodeGuard as an addon to a hosting or reseller account, WHMCS and MarketConnect fully automate the CodeGuard provisioning process. This includes automated provisioning of SFTP/FTP access credentials where possible.


The CodeGuard service uses SFTP access to automatically back up your website.

For all CodeGuard plans, the system provisions dedicated SFTP accounts for cPanel hosting accounts and supplies them to CodeGuard automatically. If the SFTP account creation fails, or, when tested, is unavailable, or when using DirectAdmin hosting accounts, the system creates and supplies a dedicated FTP account. For Plesk servers, the system uses the primary account login details.

If the system can’t provision SFTP or FTP access successfully, the welcome email for the customer contains instructions for the user detailing how to create their website backup manually within their CodeGuard account.

Admin Management Actions

When viewing any CodeGuard order in the Admin Area, admins can perform the following actions:

  • Log in to CodeGuard Control Panel — Click to perform single sign-on into the CodeGuard dashboard for the website.

You can also use single sign-on to access the CodeGuard dashboard via Configuration () > System Settings > MarketConnect.

Client Management Actions

When logged in to the Client Area, if a customer has an active CodeGuard service, they will receive a link to access and manage their backups that will perform Single Sign-On and take them directly to the CodeGuard Control Panel.

Client Area Promotions

MarketConnect supports showing CodeGuard promotions in the Client Area homepage, sidebar, shopping cart and when managing a web hosting product that does not have a CodeGuard service attached to it.
