ModSecurity is an effective firewall for Apache web servers which is used to stop attacks toward web apps. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a specific site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts the instant it discovers them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do that - for instance, attempting to log in to a script administration area unsuccessfully many times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file which could result in getting access to the site triggers another rule, and so on. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls available and it'll protect even scripts which are not updated regularly because it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Incredibly comprehensive information about each intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are considerably more comprehensive than the conventional logs generated by the Apache server, so you may later analyze them and determine whether you need to take more measures so as to enhance the safety of your script-driven websites.

ModSecurity in Shared Hosting

ModSecurity is available on all shared hosting servers, so when you decide to host your sites with our firm, they shall be protected against a wide range of attacks. The firewall is enabled as standard for all domains and subdomains, so there will be nothing you shall need to do on your end. You shall be able to stop ModSecurity for any Internet site if needed, or to activate a detection mode, so all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall will not take any real action. You'll be able to view detailed logs via your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP where the attack came from, what the attacker wished to do and how ModSecurity addressed the threat. Since we take the security of our clients' sites seriously, we employ a group of commercial rules which we get from one of the leading companies which maintain such rules. Our admins also add custom rules to ensure that your sites shall be resistant to as many risks as possible.

ModSecurity in Semi-dedicated Hosting

ModSecurity is part of our semi-dedicated hosting packages and if you choose to host your Internet sites with our company, there shall not be anything special you'll need to do since the firewall is turned on by default for all domains and subdomains you add via your hosting Control Panel. If needed, you could disable ModSecurity for a certain Internet site or enable the so-called detection mode in which case the firewall will still work and record info, but will not do anything to stop potential attacks against your Internet sites. Thorough logs shall be readily available inside your Control Panel and you'll be able to see what type of attacks occurred, what security rules were triggered and how the firewall addressed the threats, what IP addresses the attacks originated from, etcetera. We employ two types of rules on our servers - commercial ones from a firm that operates in the field of web security, and custom ones that our admins sometimes include to respond to newly found threats promptly.

ModSecurity in VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers that are set up with the Hepsia Control Panel feature ModSecurity. The firewall is installed and activated by default for all domains that are hosted on the machine, so there will not be anything special that you'll need to do to protect your Internet sites. It will take you only a click to stop ModSecurity if necessary or to activate its passive mode so that it records what occurs without taking any steps to stop intrusions. You shall be able to view the logs produced in passive or active mode from the corresponding section of Hepsia and discover more about the form of the attack, where it originated from, what rule the firewall employed 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 out as many threats as possible, therefore boosting the security of your web programs as much as possible.

ModSecurity in Dedicated Servers Hosting

When you decide to host your websites on a dedicated server with the Hepsia CP, your web applications shall be protected immediately as ModSecurity is supplied with all Hepsia-based solutions. You shall be able to regulate the firewall with ease and if necessary, you shall be able to turn it off or enable its passive mode when it shall only keep a log of what's taking place without taking any action to stop possible attacks. The logs that you can find inside the very same section of the Control Panel are really detailed and include details about the attacker IP, what site and file were attacked and in what ways, what rule the firewall employed to stop the intrusion, and so forth. This info shall allow you to take measures and enhance the protection of your sites even more. To be on the safe side, we use not only commercial rules, but also custom-made ones which our administrators include every time they detect attacks that have not yet been included inside the commercial pack.
