ModSecurity is a potent web application layer firewall for Apache web servers. It monitors the whole HTTP traffic to an Internet site without affecting its performance and when it identifies an intrusion attempt, it prevents it. The firewall additionally maintains a more thorough log for the traffic than any web server does, so you shall manage to monitor what is going on with your websites better than if you rely only on conventional logs. ModSecurity employs security rules based on which it helps prevent attacks. For example, it identifies if someone is trying to log in to the admin area of a specific script a number of times or if a request is sent to execute a file with a specific command. In these circumstances these attempts set off the corresponding rules and the firewall program blocks the attempts in real time, then records in-depth details about them within its logs. ModSecurity is among the very best software firewalls on the market and it can protect your web apps against many threats and vulnerabilities, particularly in case you don’t update them or their plugins frequently.

ModSecurity is supplied with all cloud hosting machines, so if you choose to host your websites with our organization, they will be shielded from an array of attacks. The firewall is enabled by default for all domains and subdomains, so there shall be nothing you will need to do on your end. You will be able to stop ModSecurity for any site if necessary, or to activate a detection mode, so all activity shall be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You'll be able to view specific logs via your Hepsia Control Panel including the IP address where the attack came from, what the attacker wanted to do and how ModSecurity addressed the threat. Since we take the protection of our clients' websites seriously, we employ a selection of commercial rules which we take from one of the top companies which maintain this kind of rules. Our admins also include 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 solutions and if you decide to host your Internet sites with us, there shall not be anything special you'll have to do as the firewall is switched on by default for all domains and subdomains you include via your hosting Control Panel. If required, you'll be able to disable ModSecurity for a particular Internet site or activate the so-called detection mode in which case the firewall shall still operate and record data, but won't do anything to prevent possible attacks against your sites. Detailed logs will be readily available inside your Control Panel and you'll be able to see what sort of attacks occurred, what security rules were triggered and how the firewall dealt with 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 administrators sometimes include to respond to newly found threats on time.

ModSecurity in VPS Web Hosting

All virtual private servers that are offered with the Hepsia Control Panel come with ModSecurity. The firewall is installed and activated by default for all domains which are hosted on the server, so there won't be anything special that you shall have to do to protect your Internet sites. It will take you a click to stop ModSecurity if needed or to turn on its passive mode so that it records what goes on without taking any measures to prevent intrusions. You will be able to view the logs created in active or passive mode via the corresponding section of Hepsia and find out more about the type of the attack, where it originated from, what rule the firewall employed to tackle it, and so forth. We use a mix of commercial and custom rules so as to ensure that ModSecurity will block out as many risks as possible, consequently increasing the protection of your web apps as much as possible.

ModSecurity in Dedicated Servers Hosting

All of our dedicated servers that are installed with the Hepsia hosting CP come with ModSecurity, so any app that you upload or install shall be protected from the very beginning and you'll not need to stress about common attacks or vulnerabilities. A separate section inside Hepsia will permit you to start or stop the firewall for any domain or subdomain, or turn on a detection mode so that it records details about intrusions, but doesn't take actions to stop them. What you shall find in the logs can easily allow you to to secure your websites better - the IP an attack originated from, what site was attacked and how, what ModSecurity rule was triggered, etcetera. With this data, you could see if an Internet site needs an update, whether you ought to block IPs from accessing your web server, and so on. Aside from the third-party commercial security rules for ModSecurity that we use, our admins include custom ones as well every time they come across a new threat which is not yet a part of the commercial bundle.
