ModSecurity is a plugin for Apache web servers that acts as a web application layer firewall. It's employed to stop attacks towards script-driven websites by using security rules that contain certain expressions. This way, the firewall can block hacking and spamming attempts and shield even Internet sites which are not updated often. As an example, multiple unsuccessful login attempts to a script administrator area or attempts to execute a particular file with the intention to get access to the script will trigger specific rules, so ModSecurity shall block out these activities the moment it identifies them. The firewall is incredibly efficient since it screens the whole HTTP traffic to a website in real time without slowing it down, so it can prevent an attack before any harm is done. It furthermore maintains an incredibly detailed log of all attack attempts which contains more information than typical Apache logs, so you can later check out the data and take additional measures to increase the security of your Internet sites if needed.

ModSecurity in Shared Web Hosting

ModSecurity is provided with all shared web hosting web servers, so if you decide to host your Internet sites with our firm, they'll be protected against an array of attacks. The firewall is turned on by default for all domains and subdomains, so there shall be nothing you will 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 that all activity will be recorded, but the firewall won't take any real action. You shall be able to view specific logs through your Hepsia CP including the IP address where the attack originated from, what the attacker planned to do and how ModSecurity handled the threat. Since we take the protection of our clients' Internet sites seriously, we use a selection of commercial rules that we take from one of the best firms that maintain such rules. Our administrators also add custom rules to ensure that your sites will be resistant to as many threats as possible.
