ModSecurity in Shared Web Hosting
ModSecurity comes standard with all shared web hosting plans that we offer and it will be activated automatically for any domain or subdomain that you add/create in your Hepsia hosting CP. The firewall has three different modes, so you could switch on and deactivate it with only a click or set it to detection mode, so it'll keep a log of all attacks, but it shall not do anything to stop them. The log for any of your sites will feature comprehensive information which includes the nature of the attack, where it came from, what action was taken by ModSecurity, and so forth. The firewall rules that we use are regularly updated and comprise of both commercial ones we get from a third-party security firm and custom ones our system admins add in case that they detect a new type of attacks. That way, the websites that you host here will be a lot more secure without any action needed on your end.
ModSecurity in Dedicated Servers Hosting
ModSecurity is included with all dedicated servers which are integrated with our Hepsia Control Panel and you'll not have to do anything specific on your end to employ it as it's turned on by default whenever you include a new domain or subdomain on your web server. In the event that it disrupts any of your apps, you'll be able to stop it through the respective part of Hepsia, or you may leave it working in passive mode, so it'll recognize attacks and will still maintain a log for them, but shall not block them. You could analyze the logs later to learn what you can do to enhance the safety of your websites as you shall find details such as where an intrusion attempt came from, what website was attacked and based on what rule ModSecurity reacted, etc. The rules which we use are commercial, therefore they are regularly updated by a security firm, but to be on the safe side, our administrators also add custom rules from time to time as to react to any new threats they have discovered.
