Ransomware on a website?

Ransomware is popularly thought to affect only PCs, mainly containing older versions of Microsoft Windows, through phishing of login details. Actually, nothing is farther than the truth.

In fact, ransomware can be introduced even into Linux-based web servers / websites without using any phishing techniques, and even if they are behind a firewall.

The above image displays the new homepage of a website on cPanel shared hosting recently locked by ransomware. The image below is a listing of the ransomware-encrypted website files as seen via an FTP client.

fware ransomware file listing

How did the ransomware get in?

Servers are computers available on the public Internet and are required to serve information via multiple protocols such as HTTP/HTTPS, FTP, SSH, etc. This also creates multiple points of entry for attackers in addition to poorly secured entry points in web apps.

In this case, the website had allowed file uploads into directories that (carelessly) had execute file permissions enabled for everyone. In Linux this is the 777 permission. This allowed an attacker to upload the fware encryption PHP code to the website and then cause the code to execute via a web browser call.

What would you do if this happened to you?

How would you be affected if you woke up one morning to see your website that wasn’t available anymore? Even after paying the ransom there is no guarantee of receiving the decryption key and getting back your website files and data.

Luckily, in this case, the webmaster (website manager) for this website had already enabled automated website backups and was able to restore the website quickly. Most webmasters agree frequent automated backups are the best defense against total website loss. So does your website have automated backups?

.io Registrar almost lost control of their Domains

.io logo

Matthew Bryant, a researcher, was able to successfully take over the entire .io TLD after a slip-up by its operating registry left authoritative name servers freely available. Authoritative name servers are DNS servers that control resolution of all domains for a given zone, in this case “.io”. These name servers are a vital part of the DNS system which controls where requests are routed.

The mistake was noticed by Bryant earlier this month while conducting scans of DNS servers (he has a history of finding security vulnerabilities with other TLDs). He found one of .io’s authoritative name servers was available to register. This essentially gives you complete control of the zone because you can now control what IP address any domain routes to.

This is a major security vulnerability because requests for anysite.io could be routed to any server while still appearing to be the correct domain. This could also be used in a denial of service attack to make .io sites inaccessible.

Upon further investigation, Bryant was able to register the domains used by 4 of the 7 authoritative nameservers for the .io TLD. Those domains had been available and available to register by anyone willing to pay the $90 registration fee.

The error has highlighted just how much trust and vulnerability lies with registries, a fact often ignored when we choose to use “vanity” domains, which are often operated by smaller and poorly managed registries.

We always try to keep our customers happy and make sure they do not encounter any issues while using our services. In addition to our Paid plans, we also ensure that our Free web hosting plan support WordPress and Joomla installations.

Unfortunately with the latest release of Joomla the database disk space usage was significantly increased, which rendered the Free hosting plan completely unusable, because a basic Joomla installation consumes 9.98MB of MySQL space, while the free hosting plan had a limit of 10MB.

Ofcourse we cannot disappoint our clients, so we have increased the available MySQL storage for the Free hosting plan from 10MB to 30MB and for the Basic hosting plan from 50MB to 100MB.

With this upgrade the Free and Basic web hosting plans are again competitive and Joomla-friendly.

Dedicated Server on iwebz.hosting

A Dedicated Server is meant to take your web site one step further. Offering an amazing combination of dependable hardware and stable software, the dedicated servers on offer at iWebz Web Hosting are precisely what your site needs.

ARTICLE: Why should Tech startups start with Dedicated Servers?

New Billing Cycles

Recently, we’ve introduced a major upgrade to our dedicated servers – we’ve improved the hardware of the existing setups and added 8 new configurations.

Up until now, only a monthly payment period has been available for the dedicated server packages.

With the new update, our Dedicated Server customers will be able to make use of 3-month and 6-month billing cycles, apart from the default monthly payment option.

These billing periods are now available while placing your order.

dedicated server new billing cycles

Billing Cycle Discounts

dedicated servers billing discountsAs you can see, the new billing cycles are tied to a corresponding discount on the default monthly price.

This way, if you select the 3-month billing cycle, they will get a pleasing 10% discount off their plan’s monthly price right away:

And if you select the 6-month billing period, the discount will be twice as big – 20% OFF the default monthly price.

By switching between the 3 billing period options, you will be able to see the difference between the regular monthly price and the discounted quarterly and semi-annual prices in the table below and choose the most suitable option at the time of purchase.

Once enabled, the new billing periods will be in force for as long as you want. When the period expires, you will be able to renew your subscription for another 3 or 6 months, or to switch to the regular monthly billing option.

Get a Dedicated Server for your online venture

Take advantage of a free Control Panel, 24/7/365 technical support and a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

Following this tutorial requires you to have an active web hosting account from iwebz.hosting with SSH access enabled.

mezzanine cms iwebz python hosting

Setting up the Mezzanine CMS environment

To begin installing the Django framework-powered Mezzanine CMS (official website)on our platform, you must first create the app environment via SSH.

Step 1: Create a virtual environmеnt (venv) in the root folder of your account, in our case:

/usr/local/python-3.5/bin/virtualenv /home/venv/

Step 2: Enter the newly created virtual environment using the following command:

source /home/venv/bin/activate

Step 3: Go to the “www” folder of your hosting account:

cd /home/www/

Step 4: Install the Mezzanine CMS binaries along with the corresponding modules fastcgi support and flup6.

pip install git+https://github.com/NetAngels/django-fastcgi
pip install flup6
pip install mezzanine

NOTE: Make sure you disable the Outgoing Connections option or the installation of the modules will fail.

Step 5: Set up the Mezzanine project In a selected custom directory, in our case mydjangocms:

mezzanine-project mydjangocms

Step 6: Create a domain or subdomain for the newly installed CMS. Keep in mind that the Jail host option needs to be deactivated in order for the installed modules to function properly.

Point your newly created domain or subdomain to the path of your project. In our example, the path is “/www/mydjangocms”.

python settings

Setting up the Mezzanine CMS app

Step 7: Go to the newly created Mezzanine CMS folder:

cd mydjangocms

Step 8: Set up a database for your CMS. In our case, we’ll use the sqlite3 database for the sake of ease (alternatively, you could set up a MySQL/PostgreSQL database by applying the necessary settings to the Python setup file:

python manage.py createdb

You will see the following message:

A site record is required.
Please enter the domain and optional port
in the format 'domain:port'. For example 'localhost:8000' or 'www.example.com'.
Hit enter to use the default (127.0.0.1:8000):

Use the default option for the SQL host. You will then be asked to enter your username, email and password. These are the login credentials for the CMS system and not the database.

In the end, you can choose if you want to have some demo content inserted.

Step 9: Set up an .htaccess file in the folder of your project with the following entries:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.fcgi/$1 [QSA,L]

Step 10: Set up an index.fcgi file in the folder of your project using the following code (it will serve as an entry point for all requests to the CMS). Don’t forget to replace “mydjangocms” with the name of your project.

#!/home/venv/bin/python3.5
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
import os
import sys
activate_this = '/home/venv/bin/activate_this.py'
exec(open(activate_this).read(), dict(__file__=activate_this))
cms_path = '/home/www/mydjangocms/'
sys.path.insert(0, cms_path)
os.chdir(cms_path)
# Set the DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE environment variable.
os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = "mydjangocms.settings"
from django_fastcgi.servers.fastcgi import runfastcgi
from django.core.servers.basehttp import get_internal_wsgi_application
wsgi_application = get_internal_wsgi_application()
runfastcgi(wsgi_application, method="prefork", daemonize="false", minspare=1, maxspare=1, maxchildren=1)

Step 11: You’ll need to make the index.fcgi file executable using this command:

chmod +x index.fcgi

Step 12: Edit the settings file located inside “mydjangocms/settings.py” and replace

ALLOWED_HOSTS = []
With your actual host name:

ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['mydjangocms.my-best-domain.net']

Step 13: Run the following command to collate the static files:

python manage.py collectstatic

You are now ready and your site should be up and running.

In our example, the newly installed Mezzanine CMS will resolve to:
http://mydjangocms.my-best-domain.net/

django mezzanine cms installation

Now you can log into your Mezzanine CMS Admin Panel using the login details set in step 8 above and kickstart a new blog, for example:

django mezzanine cms admin panel

A Renewal Grace Period is the time during which a domain owner can renew an expired domain at the regular renewal price. Most domain extensions offer a renewal grace period of up to 40 days.

The .EU Registry has announced a change in its policy with respect to Domain Renewals as a result of which .EU domains will no longer enjoy any Renewal Grace Period. This change will come into effect from 23rd November, 2016.

A domain name that is not renewed before the expiry date will now directly expire and be only be available for restoration at the stipulated restoration price.

If you have any .EU domain names coming up for renewal on or before 23 November, please ensure that you renew or transfer your .EU domains as soon as possible.

The upgrade will require a full graceful restart of all services. The process will take approximately 48-72 hours, during that time there will be intermittent service interruptions.

We anticipate that if problems occur during the upgrade process this may cause additional downtime as the upgrade process will have to be restarted.

This upgrade is extremely urgent and unfortunately cannot be avoided.

During the upgrade process access to your websites and control panel will be unavailable.

We apologize for the inconveniences this downtime may cause you and we want to thank you for your patience and understanding.

icann logoICANN Domain Transfer Policy Updates

ICANN has mandated certain updates to the Domain Transfer Policy for enhanced verification when either the Registrant or the Registrar change occurs. This will be effective from 1st of December, 2016.

Here are some of the key aspects that are part of the new Transfer Policy :

Impact on Inter-Registrar Transfers

A Form of Authorization, or FOA, is the email that is sent to the registered name holder when a domain transfer is initiated to approve the request. The FOA will now expire after 60 days if the transfer is not completed, unless we allow an automatic renewal and the registrant has expressly opted in to an automatic renewal.

● The FOA is void if the domain name expires before approval.

Impact on Inter-Registrant Transfers

● If a material change is made, we must collect consent from both the Prior Registrant and the New Registrant, prior to making the requested change, even if you represent both parties. A “material change” is a change in the name, company or email address listed for the registrant contact.

● If the Prior Registrant and New Registrant do not confirm the change within 60 days of the request, the change implementation will not proceed.

● Once both Prior and New Registrant parties agree to the requested contact changes, the information will be updated within 1 day after.

Impact on Privacy Protection

The Registrar on Record will act a designated approver for the Registrant. So no approval is needed from the Registrant listed on the domain. An email will be sent to the registrant whenever the status of Privacy Protection is changed. This email is merely for notification purposes.

 

We hope this was helpful. To know more about the policy please refer to the ICANN website.

Did you know that iWebz Shared Hosting plans let you setup your own private synced storage system just like Dropbox for your group of employees, friends or family members?

owncloud-header

Now let them Access, Sync & Share data from their computers or mobile devices using ownCloud.

ownCloud on iWebz Shared Hosting

All our Shared Hosting plans provide for UNLIMITED storage & bandwidth, so all you need is a Shared Hosting account with us. Only ensure that the content of files stored are within our Acceptable Use Policy.

If you already have a Shared Hosting account with us, before you setup ownCloud via the Web Installer PHP script, make sure you have PHP 5.3 or above enabled, and allow Outgoing Connections via the Advanced tab in the Control Panel.

Installing ownCloud

With the PHP web installer script, ownCloud automatically creates everything you need, so you don’t need any special skills to get it set up. If you have multiple users who will access ownCloud, it’s recommended that you do not use SQLite, but use an existing or manually created MySQL database.

  1. Download and save the Web Installer PHP script to your computer.
  2. Upload the setup-owncloud.php file to your web space using the File Manager, or an FTP app or an FTP client browser extension.
  3. Enter the URL of the setup file into your web browser. It should something like http://www.yourdomainname.com/setup-owncloud.php
  4. Follow the basic onscreen instructions to install ownCloud. After a couple of minutes it’ll redirect you to the login page.
  5. Each user is presented with Desktop & Mobile client download options after logging into their web-based interface.

 

If you face any issues with setting up ownCloud on your iWebz Shared Hosting account, write in to us via this form

Git Support on Web Hosting

Providing a developer-friendly web hosting service is a goal we always strive for. With the evolution of application development, the need for setting up online development environments, such as Git, has become a necessity. As one of the most popular developer tools used by every 4 out of 5 developers, Git support is now enabled on the iWebz Web Hosting platform.

how git support works

With Git support enabled on our web hosting platform, developers will be able to push, pull or clone their projects from GitHub, or any other platform that’s hosting their repository, to one or more web hosting accounts on our servers.

This is all best done over SSH, which opens a secure connection and executes Git operations on the server as required. The use of SSH eliminates the need for deploying a daemon service on the server to push requests, which is one of the main security concerns of web hosting providers.

Using Git support to deploy a simple script or an entire app on a web hosting server is a fast and easy way to spread that version controlled content over a few web hosting accounts at the same time. This will save developers all the hassle of uploading the content to all the accounts successively over FTP.

The same holds true for updates – instead of having to use FTP to upload script or app updates to each web hosting account separately, the developer will just need to push an update from the Git repository with a simple Git+SSH command.

With Git support on our web hosting platform, you will be able to create your own repository directly on the server where your websites are located, instead of using third-party services like GitHub.

Example Git Usage

Here, we’ll examine a very basic Git repository usage scenario that will allow us to track and deploy a local (as in residing on our workstation) copy of a dev app in our production environment on the hosting web server.

Step 1: Prepare the remote (web server) Git and SSH environments

Let’s assume that our production app directory resides in ~/www/my-domain.tld/ and that our Git repository is located in ~/git_repos/my_app/. We need to execute the following in our web server environment:

$ ssh username@my-domain.tld -p 2222

After you supply your password and are logged in, you may proceed with:

  1. $ mkdir -p ~/git_repos/my_app
  2. $ cd ~/git_repos/my_app
  3. $ git init

This will initiate the Git repository and will allow us to take advantage of all the ‘goodies’ that the Git support provides.

Now we need to tell Git to accept pushes to our working directory (~/www/my-domain.tld/):

$ git config receive.denyCurrentBranch ignore

The next step is to create a post-receive hook that will help us deploy my_app’s code directly into our working directory:

$ editor_of_your_choice ~/git_repos/my_app/.git/hooks/post-receive

Fill the file with the following contents:

#!/bin/sh GIT_WORK_TREE=~/www/my-domain.tld/ git checkout -f

Save it and make the hook file executable:

$ chmod 0750 ~/git_repos/my_app/.git/hooks/post-receive

And a small step that will help us set up SSH:

  1. $ mkdir -m 0700 ~/.ssh/
  2. $ touch ~/.ssh/authorized_keys
  3. $ chmod 0600 ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

Step 2: Prepare the local (workstation) Git and SSH environments

Let’s assume that the app you’re developing resides in ~/projects/my_app/ and contains only one example file: index.php – we’ll set up a Git repository in the same directory:

  1. $ cd ~/projects/my_app/ $ git init
  2. $ git add index.php
  3. $ git commit -m 'initial version'
  4. $ git remote add origin username@my-domain.tld:git_repos/my_app

We need to generate a cryptographically strong SSH public/private key pair:

$ ssh-keygen -t rsa -b 4096

This will create two files: ~/.ssh/id_rsa (private key) and ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub (public key).

Create a ~/.ssh/config file and add the remote host info:

  1. Host my-domain.tld
  2. Port 2222
  3. PreferredAuthentications publickey,password

If you already have this file, you only need to update it using the information above.

Now add the SSH public key to the production environment:

$ cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh username@my-server.tld "cat >> ~/.ssh/authorized_keys"

Step 3: Deploy your app’s code to production Now we only need to push my_app’s code into production via Git:

$ git push -u origin master.

And you're done! Your app (index.php in this example) is now deployed on the remote web server in the ~/www/my-domain.tld/ directory using SSH & Git support.

How To Get Started?

First of all, you will need to have SSH access enabled for your iWebz web hosting account.

We include SSH access by default with the Enterprise plan, the Semi-dedicated 2 plan and with all VPS and dedicated server solutions on our platform. With all other packages, SSH is available as an upgrade.

Git is enabled by default with all Hepsia Control Panel-managed hosting solutions including:

  • Web hosting packages
  • Semi-dedicated servers
  • OpenVZ Virtual Private Servers with a Hepsia installation
  • Dedicated servers with a Hepsia installation

Fully revamped line of Dedicated Servers

dedicated serversDedicated servers lie at the heart of any quality web hosting service. Due to their ability to offer maximum amounts of resources and utmost levels of flexibility, they can make any web hosting portfolio complete and fully competitive on a cut-throat market.

We have just revamped our dedicated server offerings to offer you a wider choice of dedicated server solutions at much more competitive prices.

Due to the strong interest in the entry-level Atom series, we’ve added 2 more SSD-equipped, Atom-driven configurations offering higher CPU and RAM allocations.

Also, we’ve added 6 brand new SSD-equipped, Intel Xeon-powered server configurations for more exigent users who need much faster loading speeds for their projects.

Types of Dedicated Servers available

Intel Atom-driven dedicated servers

Intel Atom-based dedicated servers are a great starting point for users who are just stepping into the field of self-hosted solutions.

AMD Opteron-powered dedicated servers

The two existing AMD Opteron-based dedicated server packages feature the same hardware parameters, but now boast much more affordable prices.

Intel Xeon-based dedicated servers

The brand new line of 6 new server configurations of Intel Xeon-driven dedicated servers are SSD-based, and offer generous amounts of RAM and monthly traffic.

The 2 most advanced Xeon-powered setups – Xeon 4 and Xeon 6 are fully customizable and require a longer assembly time – up to 2 weeks.

Advantages of SSD-equipped Dedicated Servers

Despite their higher prices, SSDs outperform HDDs in terms of data reading/writing capabilities. Our administrators have compared regular enterprise-grade SSDs against professional HDD (SAS) drives capable of reaching speeds of 10,000-15,000 rpm (revolutions per minute). On the figure below, you can check the resulting performance benchmark figures below.

Why should you use Dedicated Servers?

If you are a small business with relatively simple web hosting operations, then don’t ignore dedicated servers.  The pressure to use the cloud is powerful, but thats because you only see the marketing hype.

The reality is that a dedicated server, properly managed, will generally provide greater performance and reliability at lower costs than current cloud service options.

With most cloud systems, the network and underlying storage are shared among customers. This can cause disk I/O to be unpredictable.   If another customer starts to send large amounts of write requests to the storage array, you may see slowdowns.  The upstream network is shared so you can experience bottlenecks there too.

With cloud, you share resources with others.  This includes disk, RAM, CPU and network. A node in a cloud computing service is usually no more reliable than a single dedicated server. Even with the cloud you have to build redundancy into the system. 

Often due to inherent design or more often configuration choices, a single user can overwhelm a local compute node.  This can result in temporary outages and performance issues for your operations that have nothing to do with you.

The Cloud also adds costs to bring together various components that are anyways available together in dedicated servers, and depending on the vendor architecture for which you build your app, it may also result in a lock-in.

cloud vs. regular hosting

What is Cloud Hosting?

Cloud hosting services provide hosting for websites on virtual servers following the utility model of computing in that it is available as a service, rather than as a product, and is therefore comparable with traditional utilities such as electricity and gas.

It exists as an alternative to hosting websites on single servers (either dedicated or shared hosting servers), and is also referred to as Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

Why is Cloud Hosting better?

Cloud hosting services provide hosting for websites on virtual servers which pull their computing resource from extensive underlying networks of physical web servers and often pulled from different data centers in different locations. This leads to improved fault-tolerance & availability.

The client can tap into their service as much as they need, depending on the demands of their website, and they will only pay for what they use leading to optimizing expenses.

Being a service the resource limits can be increased or decreased at will and resource usage can be dynamically allocated within these limits. This type of hosting is therefore even better than a fixed configuration VPS.

iWebz℠ Cloud Hosting

2X Faster load times, 4X Scalable cloud hosting with rock-solid stability - perfect for rapidly growing websites & web applications.

Recently, we’ve received a number of requests by users who want to be able to run background processes for their live content projects and so we decided to delegate that right to you from a controlled environment – the Supervisor tool in the Web Hosting Control Panel.

supervisor-control-panel-index

Through the Supervisor tool, you will be able to run background scripts and programs on your own in a way that the security of your web hosting account could be guaranteed.

The Supervisor functionality is mostly used to establish real-time, two-way connections between web clients and servers over the TCP-based WebSocket Protocol.

WebSocket is a new HTML5 feature, which allows JavaScript clients to open bidirectional socket connections to a server without interruptions.

This enhances the interaction between browsers and sites and facilitates the syndication of live web content.

Get a .FANS domain name

One of the new generation of internet addresses, domain names ending in .fans are set to become an essential destination for consumer, music, sports and entertainment brands to help signpost quality content for fans online.

Research conducted by LightSpeed GMI on behalf of dotFans shows that when searching for content about the things they love, 30% of fans say they would be more likely to visit a web address ending with .fans over one ending with .com - a preference which will only increase further as .fans domains begin to be used more widely in coming months.

Why a .FANS domain name?

This unique & intuitive TLD creates a digital center for fans across all platforms to connect online – sharing experiences, discussing new or upcoming events, or putting together chat forums.

.FAN is perfect for any person encouraging a fan base, any fan trying to establish an unofficial fan website, or any business helping fans take part in the events they love.

The .fans domain extension is operated by dotFans which was awarded the rights to operate the Registry in 2014.

]]>
linux kvm logoWe are pleased to inform you that brand new Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM) VPS packages have just been enabled on the iWebz Web Hosting platform, replacing the Virtuozzo VPS plans. Read more about them and get started within minutes!

About KVM

The key difference between KVM-driven VPSs and almost all other kinds of VPSs is the server virtualization environment itself. With KVM, there’s absolutely no requirement for any supplementary virtualization software to be installed on the server. The indispensable software commands are engrafted straight into the host OS kernel itself instead.

This goes to say that you can select pretty much any Operating System that can run on the specific server. Do you need to run BSD on your virtual server? This can be done. Do you need to use Windows? No problem.

This vastly minimizes the system resources that the physical server needs to reserve in order to run extra applications and makes those resources in turn available to the virtual machines. The absence of an extra communication layer also slashes the I/O waiting time, efficiently making your virtual server run markedly faster.

As usual, each of the Linux KVM virtual private servers provided by iWebz Web Hosting comes preloaded with SSD hard disks rather than ordinary HDD hard drives. So nothing changes there.

The Linux KVM virtual private servers are loaded with a number of free bonus deals, that include a dedicated IP address for your site.

Currently these VPSs are only available at our U.S. data center at Steadfast/Chicago.

Get started with KVM

Learn more about this powerful VPS solution from our website. You can also visit the website and compare all plans online.

Your own virtual private server will be configured in up to 60 minutes right after registration (select the KVM tab, then select the desired configuration/plan).

iwebz-host-logo-320x60For quite some time iWebzHost.net has been working toward improving the end-customer experience, because a happy customer is a good customer.

Free hosting plan – Now with MORE disk space

The biggest update is concerning the disk space of the free hosting which now comes with 1GB of disk space instead of 250MB. We have also increased the file size limits for free customers, so they can use the newly available disk space.

Zacky App Installer – Only the newest software and one-click updates

The Zacky App Installer supports upgrades for WordPress and Joomla through the user control panel for both free and paid customers with a single click of a button. We have a dedicated team which makes sure that the available softwares for installation through the Zacky App Installer are up-to-date.

VPS – Upgrades without downtime, improved set of features, and 1-WEEK trials for paid customers

We have made a lot of improvements for the customers using VPSs. All VPS upgrades are now almost instant and do not require restart of the VPS. The VPS Manager section from the Control Panel has been reworked, so more options and features are now available to the customers, like management of HDD volumes, better control and various statistics.

Another great thing about the new VPS platform is that with its release we have decided to give all paid clients the opportunity to get a VPS plan for 1 week as a trial, so they can see if a VPS is their thing or not.

Webmail – Full SSL support with Roundcube and iPhone configurator

The last update is concerning Webmail applications, in the past we supported three applications – IlohaMail, AtMail and Roundcube. From quite some time we support only Roundcube due to its diversity of themes, functionality and mobile device friendliness. We have discontinued the other Webmail applications, because SSL was not fully supported there.

Another useful feature that we added to the Webmail is the “iPhone configurator”, which allows iPhone users to configure e-mail accounts into their phones very easily.

Upcoming developments

The most important thing for us at the moment is finishing the new hosting control panel, which already includes all the features of the preceding Domain Control Panel, SSL Control Panel, VPS Control Panel and almost the entire Hosting Control Panel.

Jail Host now enabled by default for all new hosts https://www.iwebz.net/index.php/jail-host-enabled-by-default/ Fri, 15 Jan 2016 16:59:25 +0000 http://blog.resellerspanel.com/?p=9855 Now all newly added hosts on our platform will have 'Jail Host' protection enabled by default. Learn more about this innovative host security feature from our blog.

The post Jail Host now enabled by default for all new hosts appeared first on iWebz℠ Blog.

]]>
jail hostNow all newly added hosts on our platform will have ‘Jail Host’ protection enabled by default. Learn more about this innovative hosting security feature.

What does the Jail Host option stand for?

By activating the ‘Jail Host’ option for a given host, you practically isolate it from the other domains within the www/ directory of the same hosting account.

This way, if hackers try to attack the given host, they will be immediately ‘punished’ and ‘jailed’ in that host.

By being ‘jailed’, the intruders will not be able to use the host as a doorway to the rest of the system where the other hosts of yours are located.

This restriction works at the Operating System level, which will guarantee its efficiency in all cases of hack attacks on the given host.

When could I use the Jail Host option?

The ‘Jail Host’ functionality can come in real handy when you hire a webmaster to work on your site. If you do not know the webmaster in person, then it would be reasonable to take all measures to protect your host.

In this case, most hosting providers would recommend giving the guy limited FTP access to the particular host. However, if the guy comes with cruel intentions, they will still be able to break the FTP barrier and to litter your account with malicious scripts. If you ‘jail’ the host first, you’ll never risk putting your hosting account as a whole at risk.

How do I activate the Jail Host option?

The ‘Jail Host’ option is integrated into the Hosted Domains section of the iWebz Web Hosting Control Panel. It is available with all shared hosting plans, semi-dedicated servers and dedicated servers. The option is not available with our Virtual Private Servers because of its incompatibility with the virtualization technology.

In the Hosted Domains section, click on the Edit Host icon at the end of the Actions column.
The Jail Host functionality is located at the bottom of the Edit Host form. Just tick the box and click on the Edit Host button.

Does the Jail Host option involve any other restrictions?

From a ‘jailed’ host, you will not be able to access the files hosted under a different domain within the same account. So, if you want to use them, you will need to deactivate the ‘Jail Host’ option first.

However, all the other domains in the account will have access to the ‘jailed’ host’s file system.

The ‘Jail Host’ option helps users address a very specific security glitch, which lies deep under the surface.

Thus, it will add a new level of protection to our customers’ websites and is relevant to customers who are sensitive about online security. Actually, who isn’t?

What’s more, ‘Jail Host’ is a completely innovative option on the web hosting market and cannot be currently found readily implemented on any other hosting platform.

0It has come to our attention that fake suspension email notices posing as ‘PDR’ are being sent to you and your customers as part of a phishing scam.

These emails are being sent to the registrant email address fetched via the WHOIS record associated with the Domain. Many Domain Registrars have been affected by this spear-phishing attack too.

We request you to kindly ignore these emails and do not download any files or take any actions based on instructions from such emails, as the attachments might contain malicious files.

Although the emails usually target domain owners who have domain names registered by Google Domains (source: BotCrawl), this scam is capable of targeting anyone.

The emails attempt to convince you to download password stealing malware files (source: Hoax-Slayer article), that can in turn open the door to other malware.

SAMPLE EMAIL :

===== Start of Fake message =====

In a message dated 10/26/2015 11:09:57 A.M. Pacific Daylight Time,

Dear Sir/Madam,

We have added a collection of responsive themes to the Roundcube webmail client for iWebzHosting.net users.

Roundcube is a very popular webmail solution. We have deployed it on our platform to let you access your inbox at any given moment using ANY browser or device.

The themes are fully responsive and adjust themselves perfectly well to fit any screen size and desktop/mobile device, including devices powered by iOS, Android and Windows Phone. They also fully support MyRoundcube plugins like Calendar, Planner, etc.

You can preview the themes in detail from the Roundcube webmail client. Just click on Settings and then click on User Interface. Then select a theme of your liking and a preferred device. You can choose between several options – desktop, tablet and phone.

Here is a quick overview of the responsive Roundcube themes that are now available to you.

iCloud

rc-responsive-icloud

Navigating through this theme feels like using Apple’s iCloud. It features a familiar interface and retina-ready icons.

Outlook

rc-responsive-outlook

With controls similar to those offered by the Microsoft Office suite, this easy-to-navigate theme will feel familiar to Windows users.

W21

rc-responsive-w21

“Modern” is probably the best description for the W21 theme. Its design follows the latest web development industry trends.

LiteCube

rc-responsive-lite-cube

The LiteCube theme is clean and simple. It has a pastel look and an airy feel.

Alpha

rc-responsive-alpha

This is the only dark theme in the library. Its user-friendly design will appeal to those of you who are fond of ‘negatively charged’ interfaces.

Banks, corporations and huge business entities are lapping up the new generic top-level domains (gTLDs), switching from the legendary .COM.  Reliance Industries moved from .COM to its very own .JIO, the world’s 4th largest bank, BNP Paribas moved to .BNPPARIBAS and even the No. 1 bank in the United States, JP Morgan Chase is moving to .JPMORGAN.

Reliance plans to use up 200 second-level domains for different business & departments such as www.retail.jio, www.petroleum.jio etc. With huge entities like these who’ve spent billions building an empire & easily a few million more on these gTLDs, it’s hard to ignore the potential value in the new extensions.

Hollywood too, seems to be embracing the gTLDs with open arms. On our social media pages, we recently shared a news piece on The Hunger Games franchise who was the first in the industry to utilise the .MOVIE domain to launch their new websites www.TheHungerGames.movie. Music sensation, Lady Gaga also registered her website with a non-dot-com domain – www.BornThisWay.foundation.

Not only are industries, individuals & small & large businesses all moving to the gTLDs, but with the .COM domain names running out, the gTLDs may be the best bet. Late last year, Infibeam, an Indian e-commerce company launched the new gTLD, .OOO, probably a first for an eCommerce company in the world.

Get your gTLDs before they are taken!

CryptoPHP is a threat that uses backdoored Joomla, WordPress and Drupal themes and plugins to compromise web servers.

This turns out to be a global phenomenon, which was discovered by experts in the Netherlands through a compromised Joomla plugin on a customer’s site.The plugin had been downloaded from a legitimate-looking site that offers a list of free, compromised themes and plugins.

What is the CryptoPHP malware all about?

By downloading and installing pirated CMS themes and plugins on their own sites, users also install the CryptoPHP backdoor, which empowers attackers to exercise remote control over their sites.

The CryptoPHP malware can inject infected content into the compromised sites and even update itself.

However, the main purpose of the malware is to conduct blackhat SEO operations. Experts have detected links and text injected into the compromised pages with the sole purpose of tricking crawlers into giving the hacker sites backlink credit and a pagerank.

Experts have identified thousands of plugins that have been backdoored using CryptoPHP, including both WordPress and Joomla plugins and themes and Drupal themes.

The exact number of websites affected by CryptoPHP has not been determined yet. However, specialists have reasons to believe that they are at least a few thousand.

How are sites on our platform affected by CryptoPHP?

Unfortunately, a few CMS sites on our platform became the target of CryptoPHP hackers as well. Upon locating the attack, our admins made a thorough investigation of the affected sites and found out that they all contain files like social.png, social0.png, or social1.png, etc.  in their code, which are actually PHP scripts instead of PNG files.

They have managed to clean all infected sites of the malware. However, they cannot guarantee that CMS users will not be compromised again if downloading a pirated CMS theme or plugin from the web.

What should I do to make sure I am not affected by CryptoPHP?

If you have ever installed pirated or untrusted WordPress / Joomla / Drupal plugins / themes / templates, you are potentially susceptible to a CryptoPHP attack.

This is why, you need to take immediate measures and check your sites for files named ‘social.png’. If the file is a PHP script instead of a PNG file, you are probably backdoored.

The best way to protect yourself from the CryptoPHP malware is by making sure you download CMS themes / plugins from from trusted developers’ sites and popular marketplaces.

Here you can find the whole report by the Dutch company, which diagnosed and publicized the CryptoPHP malware:

You will also need to install a worker plugin on each of the WordPress sites you plan to manage using the admin panel. Instructions for this can be found on this page.

Once you have installed & added the worker plugins activation keys of each WordPress site to the InfiniteWP installation, click on Settings at the top-right corner of the page, and make sure fsock usage is disabled in the configuration as below.

infinitewp-settings

If you are a Web Developer who serves a number of clients, the ability to provide client branding is a nice touch. Basically your clients won’t be seeing an ‘InfiniteWP Worker’ plugin entry, rather your own chosen name, or you can also choose not to display the worker plugin at all in your client’s plugin list..

If you face any issues with setting up InfiniteWP on your iWebz Shared Hosting account, write in to us at support@iwebz.net mentioning your account username.

OpenVZ (by Parallels Inc.)

OpenVZ is is a Linux-based virtualization platform based on the Linux Kernel. OpenVZ allows a physical server to run multiple isolated operating system instances known as containers. OpenVZ can only run Linux-based operating systems such as CentOS, Fedora, Gentoo, and Debian.

One disadvantage of OpenVZ is that users are not able to make any kernel modifications. All virtual servers have to get along with the kernel version the host runs on. However because it doesn’t have the overhead of managing virtual machines, it is very fast and efficient compared to Xen, KVM and VMware.

OpenVZ is the open source version of Virtuozzo. It comes without the high-end features that accompany it’s expensive big brother, Virtuozzo. Being open source, it works with an open source VPS control panel such as SolusVM which keeps hosting charges low.

If you are looking for a fast, affordable and good VPS solution (memory, disk space, bandwidth, etc.) , OpenVZ is for you.

Virtuozzo (also by Parallels Inc. )

Efficient use of server resources is its primary strength. Virtuozzo partitions a Windows or Linux server into multiple execution environments (virtual environments). Using the OS virtualization method, Virtuozzo is noted for its performance and virtualization density (hundreds of virtual environments can run simultaneously).

However, since Virtuozzo is not open-source, it is not free and adds an additional cost to the hosting charges. It comes with its own VPS control panel.

ICANN Domain Renewal Scam

The latest ploy among cybercriminals is sending registrants domain renewal emails, which pretend to be coming from ICANN.

The scam emails are only aimed at misleading the registrants into giving their financial information on the phishing sites they are redirected to from the email notifications.

What To Watch Out For

The Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) has managed to outline a few common characteristics of the emails sent by scammers:

  • The scam email encourages the recipient to click on a link to renew the domain online at an attractively low price.
  • The ‘renewal promotion’ email appears to be sent by ICANN. It features ICANN’s branding and logo in the body of the message.
  • The fake renewal page that the email leads to also tries to mimic a page managed by ICANN.

While ICANN has initiated a thorough investigation of this aggressive scam campaign, they recommend that registrants also take steps to protect their personal information.

What To Do

So, if you receive an email similar to the one described above, you should keep in mind the following notes:

  • Any email that offers domain renewal services from ICANN is NOT authentic, since ICANN does not process domain registrations or collect fees from registrants directly. All domain expiration notifications are sent from us – your hosting provider.
  • You should contact our support team directly for any concerns about the status of your domain name.
  • To help ICANN fight this global scam practice, you can report any scam email received at compliance@icann.org. A copy of the scam email is required for maximum investigation results.

What is a CDN?


A Content Delivery Network (CDN) is a system of distributed network of servers (network) that deliver webpages and other Web content to a user based on the geographic locations of the user, the origin of the webpage, and a content delivery server. The process of bouncing through a CDN is nearly transparent to the user.

The goal of a CDN is to serve content to end-users with high availability and high performance. CDNs serve a large fraction of the Internet content today, including web objects (text, graphics and scripts), downloadable objects (media files, software, documents), applications (e-commerce, portals), live streaming media, on-demand streaming media, and social networks.

This service is effective in speeding the delivery of content of websites with high traffic and websites that have global reach. The closer the CDN server is to the user geographically, the faster the content will be delivered to the user. CDNs also provide protection from large surges in traffic and DoS attacks by using their large distributed server infrastructure to absorb the surge in traffic.

Types of CDNs

There are Paid & Free CDNs available. A free CDN service will last only for so long. Limitations with free CDNs range from limited trials to difficult setups to lack of presence in desired geographies.

Here is a list of available free CDNs:

Ideally, you should try out a CDN that lets you migrate to a reasonable paid plan after your trial period expires.
