ModSecurity is an effective firewall for Apache web servers that is used to prevent attacks towards web apps. It keeps track of the HTTP traffic to a specific site in real time and stops any intrusion attempts the instant it detects them. The firewall uses a set of rules to do that - for instance, attempting to log in to a script administrator area unsuccessfully a few times activates one rule, sending a request to execute a specific file that may result in gaining access to the website triggers a different rule, and so on. ModSecurity is among the best firewalls around and it will protect even scripts that aren't updated frequently because it can prevent attackers from using known exploits and security holes. Incredibly comprehensive data about every intrusion attempt is recorded and the logs the firewall maintains are far more detailed than the standard logs generated by the Apache server, so you can later take a look at them and decide whether you need to take additional measures so as to improve the safety of your script-driven websites.

ModSecurity in Shared Website Hosting

ModSecurity comes standard with all shared website hosting plans that we provide and it will be activated automatically for any domain or subdomain that you add/create within your Hepsia hosting CP. The firewall has 3 different modes, so you could activate and disable it with just a mouse click or set it to detection mode, so it will keep a log of all attacks, but it'll not do anything to stop them. The log for any of your sites shall include elaborate information including the nature of the attack, where it came from, what action was taken by ModSecurity, and so forth. The firewall rules which we use are constantly updated and comprise of both commercial ones we get from a third-party security company and custom ones our system admins add in case that they detect a new sort of attacks. That way, the websites you host here shall be a lot more secure with no action required on your end.
