Server security is a complex and multifaceted subject that can take years to fully understand and master. We diligently develop and deploy a vast array of security measures on our servers in order to prevent attacks and breaches. The security measures in question can be as simple as requiring more secure passwords and as complex as deploying updated encryption protocols for stored data.
What does all this gobbledygook mean to you? Simply put; we make sure that the bad parts of the internet does not interfere with your emails & websites.
Here are 7 ways we have significantly improved our server security especially for you:
1. Securing SSH
Though the SSH is an encrypted protocol, it is not impervious. We have done our due diligence during configuration to ensure its utmost security.
2.Disable SSH V1
With the inception of SSHv2 making its predecessor SSHv1 all but obsolete, we have disabled less secure and outdated SSH to improve our server’s security.
3.Disable Root Login
To add an additional layer of security and further strengthen our SSH, we have disabled the root user and created a separate user to access the server.
4. Disable Ping Request
A ping is a ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) request, and we have disabled it to avoid “Ping of Death” and “Ping Flood” attacks.
Ping Of Death
Ping of Death is a denial of service attack caused by an attacker deliberately sending an IP packet larger than allowed by IP protocol.
As a result, many operating systems do not know what to do when they receive oversized packets, the machine will be frozen, crashed or rebooted.
Ping Flood is a simple denial-of-service attack where the attacker overwhelms the victim with the ICMP packets in hopes that the victim will respond with ICMP reply packed thus consuming both incoming and outgoing bandwidth.
If the target machine is slower, it is possible to consume its CPU cycles creating a noticeable slowdown in the system’s processing capabilities.
5. Configure Host Access Control
In certain instances you might want to allow specific services to one IP only. In order to accomplish this goal, we have properly configured our Host Access Control, which allows us to create rules approving or denying server access based on the IP address of the user.
Denying all connections and only allowing the connections which we wish to proceed is the most secure practice for increasing the security of our server against brute force attacks over specific ports.
6. We disabled FTP & are using SFTP Instead
Although you wouldn’t guess it from their names, the FTP and SFTP protocols couldn’t be more different from one another. With standard FTP, all data transmitted between the client and server is in plain text. This makes it possible for an eavesdropper to retrieve your confidential information including login credentials and otherwise “Private” messages.
Unlike standard FTP, SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) encrypts both commands and data, preventing passwords and sensitive information from being transmitted in the plain text over the network.
7. Securing CPanel And WHM Access
We have forced HTTPS URLs to access cPanel/WHM to safeguard your cPanel & WHM login with an SSL based encryption.
