ModSecurity is a highly effective firewall for Apache web servers that's used to stop attacks against web applications. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a certain website in real time and stops any intrusion attempts the moment it detects them. The firewall relies on a set of rules to accomplish that - for instance, attempting to log in to a script administration area without success a few times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a particular file which could result in gaining access to the Internet site triggers a different rule, etc. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls around and it'll preserve even scripts that are not updated regularly as it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Incredibly detailed info about each and every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are considerably more specific than the conventional logs generated by the Apache server, so you may later take a look at them and decide if you need to take more measures so as to boost the security of your script-driven sites.

ModSecurity in Cloud Hosting

We provide ModSecurity with all cloud hosting packages, so your Internet applications will be shielded from malicious attacks. The firewall is turned on as standard for all domains and subdomains, but in case you would like, you will be able to stop it through the respective area of your Hepsia Control Panel. You can also switch on a detection mode, so ModSecurity will keep a log as intended, but shall not take any action. The logs which you shall discover inside Hepsia are extremely detailed and offer data about the nature of any attack, when it occurred and from what IP, the firewall rule which was triggered, etcetera. We employ a range of commercial rules that are regularly updated, but sometimes our administrators include custom rules as well in order to efficiently protect the sites hosted on our servers.

ModSecurity in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Any web program which you install in your new semi-dedicated hosting account will be protected by ModSecurity because the firewall is included with all our hosting solutions and is turned on by default for any domain and subdomain you include or create using your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. You'll be able to manage ModSecurity through a dedicated area inside Hepsia where not only could you activate or deactivate it entirely, but you may also activate a passive mode, so the firewall shall not stop anything, but it'll still keep a record of potential attacks. This takes just a mouse click and you'll be able to see the logs no matter if ModSecurity is in active or passive mode through the same section - what the attack was and where it came from, how it was addressed, etc. The firewall uses 2 sets of rules on our servers - a commercial one which we get from a third-party web security provider and a custom one which our administrators update manually as to respond to recently discovered threats as fast as possible.

ModSecurity in VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers which are offered with the Hepsia Control Panel feature ModSecurity. The firewall is set up and switched on by default for all domains which are hosted on the machine, so there won't be anything special which you shall have to do to protect your sites. It will take you just a click to stop ModSecurity if necessary or to switch on its passive mode so that it records what goes on without taking any measures to stop intrusions. You shall be able to see the logs generated in active or passive mode from the corresponding section of Hepsia and discover more about the type of the attack, where it came from, what rule the firewall used to take care of it, and so forth. We use a combination of commercial and custom rules so as to make certain that ModSecurity will block as many risks as possible, hence boosting the protection of your web programs as much as possible.

ModSecurity in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All our dedicated servers that are set up with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel come with ModSecurity, so any app you upload or install shall be secured from the very beginning and you will not have to worry about common attacks or vulnerabilities. An independent section inside Hepsia will permit you to start or stop the firewall for each and every domain or subdomain, or switch on a detection mode so that it records info about intrusions, but doesn't take actions to stop them. What you will find in the logs can allow you to to secure your websites better - the IP address an attack originated from, what site was attacked and how, what ModSecurity rule was triggered, etcetera. With this data, you could see if a website needs an update, whether you ought to block IPs from accessing your web server, etc. Aside from the third-party commercial security rules for ModSecurity we use, our admins include custom ones as well every time they find a new threat that's not yet included in the commercial bundle.
