I've just purchased a VPS with Ubuntu 14.04 and Plesk 12 Web Admin Edition. I will use the vps to host just one domain/website. The first time I access Plesk, it asks for some info and first of all it asks form my domain. The default value is localhost.localdomain. Should I leave the default value or should I enter my domain (let's say example.com)?
I set up a forum for a small group of users, so I don't really wish to see spiders or bots on it, so I've put a robots.txt file there to prevent all of them from accessing the forum pages.
I know not all bots follow the robots.txt rule, and these days a really annoying bot called MUNAXNET or Munax AB with IP range 220.127.116.11 - 18.104.22.168 is causing the forum to have extra and unexpected loads.
I've tried to block this IP range with .htaccess and uploaded it to the root of the site a few days ago, here is the content:
<Limit GET HEAD POST> order allow,deny deny from 22.214.171.124-126.96.36.199 allow from all </LIMIT> However strangely it seems that all of these are not working for this bot, today I saw my forum had 80 users online and that army still keeps coming and browsing all pages of my forums...
I tested the .htaccess with blocking myself, and it actually worked for me, dunno why it's not working for that bot..
we have 3 server with Liquidweb that have problem to "resolve" a server locate in Italy
Email sent from server with LW to Italy server is not sent and stay in queue.
We try to force delivery and error is:
Message 1Je39R-0000wk-3N is not frozen LOG: MAIN cwd=/usr/local/cpanel/whostmgr/docroot 4 args: /usr/sbin/exim -v -M 1Je39R-0000wk-3N delivering 1Je39R-0000wk-3N Connecting to italyserver.com [**.**.**.**]:25 ... failed: Connection timed out (timeout=5m) LOG: MAIN italyserver.com [**.**.**.**]:25 Connection timed out LOG: MAIN == firstname.lastname@example.org R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp defer (110): Connection == timed out
We have check, there aren't problem with port and firewall All seesm ok, for all server We have try to restart exim, reboot, .. Emails don't start from 3 server LW to 1 in Italy
We have try to ping from server LW the Italian server and the problem is the same, found IP but 100% packet lost.. If we ping from 3 server LW a IP of server that is "over" the server IT is all ok
The problem seems only with single IP
So, we have try to send from server in Italy to 1 of 3 server under LW.. same problem

I use a spam protection service. It works as following : -My DNS are configured to point to a server (sever A) which is configured to filter spams. -If an email is not a spam, the first server send it to my mail server (server B).
But some spammers found a way to bypass the protection : They send directly their email to my mail server (server A). So, i want to allow only emails coming from the server A IP.
I am currently running a virtual server, and over the past couple days have had a number of brute attacks from Chinese and Indian based IP's which have been marked in my logs and trying to break in, this has pulled my websites down with the server load.
I am trying to, in the Firewall settings, add the IP's to a block list, however am unable to see where this can be configured.
I have the problem that the ip blocked "failban" too short (set findtime=1800).
The ip should be blocked for 30 minutes (the second time).
2015-03-23 22:24:59,779 fail2ban.filter : INFO Set maxRetry = 5 2015-03-23 22:24:59,780 fail2ban.filter : INFO Set findtime = 1800 2015-03-23 22:24:59,781 fail2ban.actions: INFO Set banTime = 600
I've seen a number of exploit attemps on the default website which I believe has come via direct access via ip address i.e http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.I have tried to block with .htacess but it seems to be being ignore (possibly by parallels or nginx configuration).how I can block access to the default site to all but 127.0.0.1, server external ip and my ip?
Today I try to fit all FW rules to my need. After i blocked the traffic "allow other incoming traffic" in the Plesk FW i dont get folders listed via FTP. The FTP client connect to my server, but listing content times out. After allow other traffic the content get listed. The rule "Allow FTP connections" ist in all enabled all the time.
I want to ask about some tips to prevent my blog from hacker attack. My friends experience this and i dont want this happen to me. Is web hosting technical support can fix my host server if hacker break it out?
I need to ban IP range and I inserted say ip 188.8.131.52 in the deny_hosts rules, this should ban range from 12.44 but strange is people from that range still be able to access my site, any idea what went wrong?
I have a client who needs to block IP range on a windows server. However, he is using Cloud hosting from Rackspace. I guess they are not being corporative in doing so. Anyway to do this without root? Perhaps from the control panel?
I am getting my quote back Tuesday but need a little bargaining power with these guys...
Oakland, Ca datacenter
40mbps, 20A, 42U rack.
What should I be looking at price range here, how much per mbps?
Only info I've seen is from 2003 where people were saying $200/mbps. Obviously prices have come WAY down. I've seen people on here reselling internap bandwidth for $12/mbps, but they might have bought a huge commit.
