ModSecurity in Cloud Hosting
ModSecurity comes by default with all cloud hosting packages that we supply and it'll be turned on automatically for any domain or subdomain which you add/create within your Hepsia hosting CP. The firewall has three different modes, so you could activate and disable it with just a mouse click or set it to detection mode, so it shall keep a log of all attacks, but it'll not do anything to stop them. The log for each of your sites shall contain detailed info which includes the nature of the attack, where it originated from, what action was taken by ModSecurity, and so on. The firewall rules we use are constantly updated and incorporate both commercial ones we get from a third-party security firm and custom ones our system administrators include in case that they detect a new type of attacks. This way, the Internet sites you host here shall be far more secure with no action required on your end.
ModSecurity in Dedicated Servers
If you decide to host your websites on a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, your web programs shall be protected right away because ModSecurity is available with all Hepsia-based solutions. You will be able to manage the firewall with ease and if required, you shall be able to turn it off or switch on its passive mode when it shall only maintain a log of what's going on without taking any action to prevent possible attacks. The logs that you can find within the same section of the Control Panel are extremely detailed and feature information about the attacker IP, what website and file were attacked and in what ways, what rule the firewall employed to stop the intrusion, and so on. This info shall allow you to take measures and improve the security of your sites even more. To be on the safe side, we employ not only commercial rules, but also custom-made ones that our admins include whenever they identify attacks that have not yet been included in the commercial pack.
