    Normally I would say no, however, I recently had some trouble with my site (spam/bots/hacking attempts etc) which made me change my mind. If it's your money site and something you plan to invest time and money in then it's probably a good idea. I bought sitelock from my hosting provider, and while it costs me ~$90 a year, it does give me some added peace of mind.

    Depends on the service that offers it. If it's a great hosting service and actually puts out good service, a tool to keep your site safe could probably be very useful.
