How can I monitor website security using Directadmin web control panel?
Website security is vital to protect your website from online threats and attacks. Here's how you can monitor your website's security using Directadmin:
Use Directadmin's SSL manager to install an SSL certificate on your website and activate HTTPS protocol. This encrypts user communication with the website, preventing online threats from stealing or intercepting data.
Use Directadmin to monitor your website's runtime environment. Get notified about unauthorized access with monitoring tools such as ModSecurity.
Install your website monitoring tool in the control panel. If your web hosting provider offers you a website monitoring tool, such as SiteLock or Cloudflare, you can easily install and configure it through Directadmin. These tools provide regular scans for malware, vulnerabilities and other security issues.
Configure your site's error logs in Directadmin so that all issues are flagged so you can see what the issue is and when, or if, it persists.
Check for out of date software versions on your server and website. Keep your software up-to-date including Operating Systems, Webservers, Database software and other coding components supporting the website. Updating software is important, as new, security vulnerabilities that are found on previous software version, may expose your data to hackers.
Regularly change all users and administrators' usernames and passwords through Directadmin's Web FTP. Use complex passwords, use 2FA, and do not use the previously used passwords to improve the security of your website.
By following these steps, you can monitor your website's security using Directadmin and ensure that your website remains safe and secure against online threats.
