ModSecurity in Cloud Web Hosting
ModSecurity comes by default with all cloud web hosting plans that we supply and it shall be activated automatically for any domain or subdomain that you add/create inside your Hepsia hosting CP. The firewall has 3 different modes, so you can activate and disable it with a click or set it to detection mode, so it will keep a log of all attacks, but it'll not do anything to stop them. The log for any of your websites shall feature comprehensive info including the nature of the attack, where it came from, what action was taken by ModSecurity, and so on. The firewall rules we use are regularly updated and incorporate both commercial ones that we get from a third-party security firm and custom ones which our system administrators add in the event that they detect a new type of attacks. This way, the Internet sites which you host here shall be way more secure with no action required on your end.
ModSecurity in Dedicated Web Hosting
All our dedicated servers which are installed with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel feature ModSecurity, so any program which you upload or install will be secured from the very beginning and you won't have to stress about common attacks or vulnerabilities. An individual section within Hepsia will allow you to start or stop the firewall for every domain or subdomain, or turn on a detection mode so that it records information about intrusions, but doesn't take actions to stop them. What you'll see in the logs can easily help you to secure your Internet sites better - the IP an attack originated from, what website was attacked and how, what ModSecurity rule was triggered, etcetera. With this data, you'll be able to see whether an Internet site needs an update, whether you should block IPs from accessing your server, and so on. Besides the third-party commercial security rules for ModSecurity which we use, our administrators include custom ones too when they discover a new threat that is not yet in the commercial bundle.
