ModSecurity is a highly effective firewall for Apache web servers which is used to stop attacks against web apps. It monitors the HTTP traffic to a particular site in real time and prevents any intrusion attempts as soon as it discovers them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do that - as an illustration, attempting to log in to a script administrator area unsuccessfully several times sets off one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file that could result in gaining access to the Internet site triggers a different rule, and so forth. ModSecurity is amongst the best firewalls available on the market and it'll protect even scripts which aren't updated regularly as it can prevent attackers from employing known exploits and security holes. Very detailed data about every single intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall keeps are a lot more comprehensive than the standard logs provided by the Apache server, so you may later take a look at them and decide whether you need to take extra measures so as to increase the security of your script-driven sites.

ModSecurity in Shared Web Hosting

ModSecurity comes standard with all shared web hosting plans that we offer and it shall be activated automatically for any domain or subdomain you add/create within your Hepsia hosting CP. The firewall has three different modes, so you'll be able to activate and disable it with just a click or set it to detection mode, so it will keep a log of all attacks, but it shall not do anything to prevent them. The log for any of your Internet sites shall include in-depth information including the nature of the attack, where it originated 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 which we get from a third-party security company and custom ones that our system administrators add in case that they detect a new kind of attacks. That way, the sites which you host here shall be much more protected with no action needed on your end.
