ModSecurity is a powerful firewall for Apache web servers which is used to stop attacks against web applications. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a given site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts the instant it detects them. The firewall relies on a set of rules to do that - for instance, attempting to log in to a script admin area without success a few times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a certain file which could result in accessing the website triggers another rule, and so forth. ModSecurity is amongst the best firewalls on the market and it'll preserve even scripts that are not updated often as it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Quite thorough information about every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are far more detailed than the regular logs provided by the Apache server, so you could later analyze them and decide if you need to take extra measures in order to boost the security of your script-driven Internet sites.

ModSecurity in Shared Hosting

ModSecurity is available on all shared hosting web servers, so if you opt to host your websites with our organization, they shall be shielded from an array of attacks. The firewall is enabled as standard for all domains and subdomains, so there'll be nothing you'll need to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any site if required, or to enable a detection mode, so that all activity will be recorded, but the firewall will not take any real action. You shall be able to view comprehensive logs using your Hepsia CP including the IP where the attack originated from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity dealt with the threat. As we take the protection of our customers' Internet sites very seriously, we use a selection of commercial rules which we take from one of the best firms that maintain this type of rules. Our admins also include custom rules to make certain that your Internet sites shall be resistant to as many threats as possible.

ModSecurity in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All semi-dedicated hosting solutions that we offer feature ModSecurity and given that the firewall is turned on by default, any site that you set up under a domain or a subdomain will be secured right away. An independent section within the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the semi-dedicated accounts is dedicated to ModSecurity and it'll permit you to stop and start the firewall for any website or enable a detection mode. With the last mentioned, ModSecurity shall not take any action, but it will still identify possible attacks and will keep all data in a log as if it were completely active. The logs could be found in the exact same section of the CP and they offer information regarding the IP where an attack originated from, what its nature was, what rule ModSecurity applies to recognize and stop it, and so forth. The security rules that we employ on our servers are a mix between commercial ones from a security company and custom ones made by our system admins. As a result, we offer higher security for your web apps as we can protect them from attacks before security companies release updates for completely new threats.

ModSecurity in VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers that are offered with the Hepsia Control Panel include ModSecurity. The firewall is installed and turned on by default for all domains that are hosted on the web server, so there shall not be anything special that you shall have to do to protect your Internet sites. It shall take you only a click to stop ModSecurity if needed or to activate its passive mode so that it records what goes on without taking any measures to stop intrusions. You shall be able to view the logs produced in passive or active mode through the corresponding section of Hepsia and discover more about the form of the attack, where it came from, what rule the firewall used to deal with it, and so on. We employ a mixture of commercial and custom rules in order to make certain that ModSecurity shall block as many risks as possible, hence boosting the security of your web apps as much as possible.

ModSecurity in Dedicated Servers Hosting

If you decide to host your Internet sites on a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, your web programs shall be protected straight away since ModSecurity is provided with all Hepsia-based solutions. You'll be able to regulate the firewall easily and if required, you'll be able to turn it off or activate its passive mode when it shall only maintain a log of what is taking place without taking any action to prevent possible attacks. The logs that you will find in the very same section of the CP are quite detailed and include details about the attacker IP address, what website and file were attacked and in what way, what rule the firewall employed to stop the intrusion, etc. This information shall allow you to take measures and boost the security of your websites even more. To be on the safe side, we use not only commercial rules, but also custom-made ones that our administrators add whenever they identify attacks that have not yet been included inside the commercial pack.
