ModSecurity is an efficient firewall for Apache web servers which is employed to prevent attacks toward web apps. It tracks the HTTP traffic to a certain Internet site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts as soon as it identifies them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do that - for example, trying to log in to a script administration area without success a few times triggers one rule, sending a request to execute a particular file that could result in accessing the Internet site triggers another rule, and so on. ModSecurity is amongst the best firewalls out there and it will secure even scripts which aren't updated often as it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Incredibly detailed information about each intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are a lot more specific than the regular logs provided by the Apache server, so you can later take a look at them and decide if you need to take additional measures in order to boost the safety of your script-driven sites.

ModSecurity in Cloud Web Hosting

We provide ModSecurity with all cloud web hosting packages, so your Internet applications shall be protected against harmful attacks. The firewall is switched on by default for all domains and subdomains, but if you would like, you'll be able to stop it via the respective part of your Hepsia Control Panel. You can also activate a detection mode, so ModSecurity will keep a log as intended, but won't take any action. The logs which you'll discover within Hepsia are incredibly detailed and feature information about the nature of any attack, when it transpired and from what IP address, the firewall rule that was triggered, and so forth. We use a range of commercial rules which are often updated, but sometimes our admins include custom rules as well so as to efficiently protect the sites hosted on our servers.

ModSecurity in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We have incorporated ModSecurity as a standard within all semi-dedicated hosting plans, so your web applications will be protected the instant you set them up under any domain or subdomain. The Hepsia CP that is included with the semi-dedicated accounts shall allow you to activate or turn off the firewall for any site with a mouse click. You'll also be able to turn on a passive detection mode with which ModSecurity shall maintain a log of potential attacks without actually preventing them. The thorough logs include things like the nature of the attack and what ModSecurity response that attack initiated, where it originated from, and so forth. The list of rules that we use is regularly updated as to match any new risks which might appear on the Internet and it includes both commercial rules that we get from a security corporation and custom-written ones that our admins add if they discover a threat which is not present within the commercial list yet.

ModSecurity in VPS Web Hosting

ModSecurity comes with all Hepsia-based virtual private servers we offer and it shall be turned on automatically for every new domain or subdomain you add on the hosting server. That way, any web application that you install shall be secured immediately without doing anything personally on your end. The firewall could be managed via the section of the CP which has the same name. This is the area whereyou can turn off ModSecurity or enable its passive mode, so it will not take any action towards threats, but shall still maintain a comprehensive log. The recorded data is available inside the same area as well and you'll be able to see what IPs any attacks originated from to enable you to stop them, what the nature of the attempted attacks was and based upon what security rules ModSecurity responded. The rules which we employ on our servers are a combination between commercial ones that we obtain from a security organization and custom ones which are included by our staff to optimize the security of any web apps hosted on our end.

ModSecurity in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you choose to host your Internet sites on a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, your web programs shall be protected right from the start since ModSecurity is available with all Hepsia-based plans. You'll be able to control the firewall effortlessly and if needed, you shall be able to turn it off or enable its passive mode when it will only maintain a log of what is going on without taking any action to stop possible attacks. The logs which you will find within the same section of the Control Panel are incredibly detailed and contain info about the attacker IP address, what site and file were attacked and in what way, what rule the firewall used to prevent the intrusion, and so forth. This information will allow you to take measures and enhance the protection of your Internet sites even more. To be on the safe side, we employ not just commercial rules, but also custom-made ones that our administrators add every time they recognize attacks which have not yet been included within the commercial pack.
