Adding a Website in Acunetix 360

In order to execute a security scan on a website using Acunetix 360, you first need to add the Website in the New Website window. If the website is not included and you launch a scan, the system will display an error (‘The Target URL is required.’) If the website is not recognized and you launch a scan, the system will display an error (‘No website could be found with this URL on this account. Go to Websites from the menu and add a website now.’)


If you want to add more than one website at a time, or if you have lots of websites to scan, see Importing Websites in Acunetix 360.
