Security & Reliability

Cyber attacks happen every day. As you work to grow your business, you cannot afford for your website to be compromised. But managing servers, and monitoring the health of your website takes time, money, and resources.

CMS Hub takes the pain out of managing a website so you can focus on the experience visitors and customers have on your website. Our goal is to provide you with the peace of mind that your site is hosted on the most secure CMS available on the market today.

  • Your website and all of its content is served through our global content delivery network (CDN). This allows us to handle high levels of traffic - ensuring your site remains active during an influx of traffic. Data centers around the globe host your content and regular virus scans are run on all your content to protect you and your site visitors. If one datacenter goes down, traffic automatically is rerouted to the next closest center so you, and your visitors, don't experience any downtime.

    Need a custom CDN configuration? No problem. With our configurable CDN settings you can manage the security of your HubSpot hosted content, dictating how external visitors access your website for maximum protection.

    CMS Hub Enterprise customers will have access to the following CDN Settings.

    • SSL/HSTS
    • TLS Versioning
    • X-Frame-Options
    • X-XSS-Protection
    • X-Content-Type-Options
    • Content-Security-Policy
    • Referrer-Policy
    • Feature-Policy
  • Hubspot employs an enterprise-class web application firewall, to detect any potential attacks before they pose a threat to your site. Malicious IP addresses are detected and blocked before they can get into your website.

  • At HubSpot, every site hosted on CMS Hub is automatically provisioned with a standard SSL certificate. SSL creates greater trust between your brand and visitors to your site, and increases your ranking within Google search results. And if you require custom SSL, CMS Hub will support you.

  • Build custom reporting dashboards for your HubSpot hosted content. Track errors or areas of your site that could be performing better. See which areas of your site are getting the most traffic, to ensure those pages are fully optimized. Use the performance API to track down errors (outages) reported by end customers, areas of the site that are slow, high traffic areas of the site, how the site is performing for them over time, and what the site’s overall uptime is in a given period.

  • Regardless of how complex your site hosting configuration, HubSpot can support you. Reverse proxy support lets you host all your content through an externally hosted domain, while still allowing your marketers to leverage CMS Hub

  • Pinpointing malicious attacks is only half the battle. At HubSpot, we monitor our network for anything out of place, allowing us to quickly identify and mitigate new attack types. We also go through continuous updates to ensure our systems remain safe, ensuring that you never need to worry about updating your CMS.

  • We have an entire team of individuals dedicated to ensuring the security of your content. Through both automated and manual checks, they monitor the CMS 24/7 for attacks, potential abuse or other anomalies, so you can focus on the customer experience.


When making a decision on what CMS you will build your site on, a few things are simply table stakes. If your CMS isn’t fast, it can have a significant impact on your business. Your customer experience, or your rank in Google search results, should never suffer due to a slow site. That’s why CMS Hub gives you the tools you need to make sure that your site is as fast as possible.

We asked our partners at Pingdom to run a study on how CMS Hub performs against other popular content management systems on the market. Below are the results.

  • As the CMS renders a page, HubSpot automatically resizes images for you. If your images are hosted on our global CDN, we append width and/or height path segments to the image's URL. If the URL has a height or width parameter, the CMS intercepts that request and attempts to resize it to the requested dimension(s).

  • HubSpot will automatically remove any unnecessary spaces, line breaks and comments from your JavaScript files to ensure the quickest delivery and parsing of your JavaScript files.

  • HubSpot automatically minifies all of the css files for your templates, theme, and modules. Additionally using HubL you can combine CSS files both for authoring purposes and for performance. Module CSS is broken out into separate files by default. With HTTP/2 the requests for these separate files happen at the same time, but the benefit of separate files comes with caching. If a module is re-used on other pages, those subsequent loads will be faster because the module’s css is served from the cache. Because only CSS for modules currently on the page gets loaded, you are only sending the data that’s needed for that page. Additionally if you later update a single module, with this approach you are invalidating a smaller cached CSS file, than you would if all of the CSS was combined.

  • HTTP/2 is a replacement for how HTTP is expressed “on the wire.” The focus of the protocol is on performance; specifically, end-user perceived latency, network and server resource usage. All SSL traffic on HubSpot hosted websites is served using HTTP/2.

  • Code alerts is a feature that helps developers identify areas of the HubSpot-hosted website that have infrastructure / design problems that may be creating a bad customer experience and slow site speeds.  Syntax errors, HubL errors, slow pages, and missing tags can all result in a page failing to load properly for website visitors, and code alerts surfaces that information in a table view for a developer to quickly jump into the code and resolve.

  • HubSpot automatically caches pages and files on both the server and browser level to ensure the speediest delivery of all page assets to your website visitors. When your page or any dependency of your page changes, we automatically expire the server caches for that page. Server caching is especially effective for mobile website visitors and visitors outside the US where network latency is higher.


When choosing a CMS, you want to make sure that it has the features you’ll need to accommodate your team as it grows. CMS Hub has everything you need to control who on your growing team can edit content, enabling you to grow your business by monitoring your site for quality.

  • Take control over the permissions each user has within CMS Hub. Allow specific users to only view or edit content, while others can publish changes live to your site. Control which users or teams have access to specific pieces of content using content partitioning, or which users have access to the apps you’ve integrated, or the ability to connect new apps with your HubSpot hosted site.

  • Receive granular reports on how your pages, modules, and more are being updated by users within your HubSpot portal. Share this information with stakeholders as needed, and understand what content on your site was changed, who made that change, and how a piece of content was changed.

  • Never worry about deploying those necessary pages for your site ever again. HubSpot automatically provides you with branded subscription pages, password prompt pages, search results pages, and error pages that you can easily edit as you see fit.


Many content management systems have extensive ecosystems with a number of plugins, extensions, or apps that you can use to enhance your website. CMS Hub is no different -- except we take the time to vet every single integration available within our ecosystem to ensure they are safe and reliable on your site. Never stress over updating and managing plugins again. Everyone from Hotjar to SignalFX has an integration with CMS Hub, and we take care of making sure these integrations are constantly up to date.

I love that CMS Hub allows me to keep tabs on who is making edits to my site. In a fast paced environment, I never have to worry about unexpected changes. I have the ability to give each member of my team the access and permissions they need to do their job effectively.
