Experience Of Using 10tb.com Service.(to 10tb, To Eming))

Sep 18, 2009

I started my own hosting business from July, and placed my first three orders to softlayer.com.

I have to cost down now, and place my first order to 10tb.com last friday.

Because I live in Asia, and my english is not good enough.

So...I have to use email or ticket system to ask some questions,

I just want to give you some difference message here.

All the some steps to setup my server when I place my order to softlayer, they just spend 2 hrs.

And about the tickets I have sent to softlayer, They have no more than 15~20 minutes to reply me.

But when I have placed my order at Sep/10/2009 to 10tb.com, the server was ready for 3 days later.....

I think my next billing cycle should be extended three days, right?

And the ticket I have created on the control panel of 10tb.com, they usually reply me about 12~24 hrs later, sometimes more than 24 hrs.

When everything was ready with my server, it's Sep/14/2009.

And two day pass...I found that you are offering a 50% discount(first month) at 10TB.com.

Just one day, I wasted more than $170 USD...

I only complain about it, I hope that you could have best service in the future.

Because I plan to place all my servers with 10tb.com in the future.

And I will appreciate that if you have a great service in the future too.

I have to purchase another server recently, I hope I will get a better experience.

TO Dear eming :

I think 10tb.com provide a good service, but maybe I hope you will be better.

About my experience, you could check the ticket ID#24130306.
And I want to place another order to 10tb, you could see the email I have sent to Tom and you yesterday.

10TB.com, VPS.net, DDoS Etc

Apr 4, 2009

i am always searching for an affordable provider offering ddos filtered servers.

I am interested in the offer of 10TB.com, and i really would like have opportunity of test it without renting for the whole month (because i believe they will not protect me)
To verify this theory, I decided to rent a VPS node from VPS.net, assuming they are on the same network. I did some tests, and i was actually not protected (i think i have been null routed after a small flood). Talking with a VPS.net technician, he ASSURED ME 2 TIMES THAT NEITHER VPS.NET OR 10TB.COM ARE DDOS PROTECTED!

This is against all that has always been told from 10tb.com sales. So I returned on 10tb.com site, and asked in live chat some clarify. The man replied that yes, there is no protection. Then told me to wait, and when he returned he told me that 10tb.com servers are ddos protected, VPS are not (!!!). I am very very confused. if there is some 10TB.com sales agent, i kindly ask to have opportunity to make a test for a few days, or have a 7-day money guarantee.

10TB Review

Jan 15, 2009

Typically I don't post reviews on the forums but I guess I will go ahead with this one . We ordered our first server in November .

First off for those of you who don't know 10tb is under Midphase, which in turn is under UK2. I cannot have enough praise for UK2, Ditlev is an amazing CEO who will help just about anyone and truly does care about every client getting the service they deserve. I have always seen UK2's offers and usually wrote them off for being too good to be true, most recently they had the 10 deals for the birthday special and had the 100mbps unmetered Atom server for an amazing rate (99 GBP if I remember correctly). But anyone who believes their offers to be to good to be true should dismiss that feeling, they do deliver on what they advertise.

Now onto the review of the services:

1. Ordering/Setup - Nick really helped me here and continues to help me when I have issues to this day. Sometimes the sales guys just forget about you after they make the sale, that isn't the way at 10tb. Whenever I have an issue that I am not sure about an e-mail to Nick usually has the right answer or gives me the contact I need very quickly.

Our first server was ordered and setup within a few hours, with absolutely no issues. These servers are at Softlayer's datacenter, which has a great process for deploying servers, and we had an amazing experience. 10TB gave us all the info we needed for using the private network and panel access for the server to perform plenty of task. You are able to do most the features in the Softlayer panel a normal client can do, except sales and support functions.

We have ordered a 2 additional servers from them in the past month and a half as well, setup within a timely fashin, for the most part. The most recent server had a good amount of addons and confusion in a few parts and got deployed in the wrong datacenter at first, but got redeployed in the correct one within a few hours. We were having some issues with the hardware and software and after not having too much luck with support on what they were responsible for I contacted Ditlev who found the right people and had the issue fixed very fast (thanks!) and haven't had any problems with that server since.

2. Server/Network- Anyone who has used Softlayer knows that they really have their network together, since we do internet streaming we are always looking for the best network we can use for the least amount of money. Going directly with Softlayer wasn't an option because of the rates they charge for bandwidth directly, so knowing that 10TB used Softlayer's network we went with them. It is the real thing, there isn't a difference between the network you are on with a direct Softlayer server and a 10TB server. They are on the same private and public networks. We haven't had any issues at all so far (TX Datacenter) with the network and couldn't be happier. Speeds couldn't be better .
There isn't much to say about the servers themselves, besides the nice IPMI feature you get. It has helped to be able to use the console and reboot controls when things have gone wrong.

3. Support- Support has been pretty good at Midphase, sometimes just a tad slower then I would expect but not to the point where I would ever complain. Sometimes they seem to just forget about tickets when they aren't the most important things in the world (like minor sales questions) but if you really need to find the answer you can usually just e-mail someone and they will get the answer very fast. The support has been amazing on important issues like servers not booting and other issues.

Conclusion- If you need plenty of QUALITY bandwidth, there is no one that I have found that compares to deal 10tb provides and the people there that run it. The price can't be beat, and in reality you can sometimes get a more powerful server with more bandwidth at 10TB then you can get directly at Softlayer with 2tb of bandwidth.

Well, that was longer then I expected. Hope it helps someone make a decision if they are thinking about using 10TB or Midphase . Oh yeah, and UK2 has to be one of the best companies at acquiring companies and making them even better.

A Better Deal Than 10tb.com

Mar 24, 2009

I have a 100 mbps unmetered dedicated server + cpanel = $425 in 10TB.com and I would like to hear if you guys can advice me on a better deal, I have seen lately great offers for less, so I wonder if I am paying more than the average for a 100 mbps unmetered dedicated + cpanel. I don't complain service is good, well theplanet was better but even more expensive.

I have an adult video site so all i need is bandwidth.

I appreciate your feedback on current prices and what i paid there. $425 for unmetered 100 mbps dedicated + cpanel is okay? paying a lot more? After all 10tb is a reseller, so should i go to another reseller that charge less?

10TB Vs Gigenet

Nov 7, 2008

Both are great companies which causes me to have a hard time deciding which to choose..10TB
-Resold servers from SoftLayer, which is a plus
-SoftLayer offers small to mid range DDoS protection if I am not wrong
-Cost efficient
-And many more..Gigenet
-Cost efficient
-Owns their own datacenter
-Offers a wide range of products and add-ons for a low cost/minimum cost
-Solid SLA
-And many more..

I am also considering going for both, but I still need one of them for a start..

Personally I like 10TB more, for no particular reason, just liking it, but I can't resist what Gigenet offers too.. I wish to go for both too..

10TB Servers

Oct 10, 2008

10TB.com seem to be offering servers at a decent price and I've emailed them regarding some sales issues and they replied in less than a minute! Its a few emails! Pretty fast response I suppose..

But regarding their reliability and support, how is it? Their servers are of low costs and they give 10TB bandwidth, which isn't cheap.

10TB Traffic Deals

Oct 11, 2009

Since the 10TB traffic offers seem to appear from everywhere now, I thought it might be good to index what is actually the best offer out there right now.

The basic requirements for most high bandwidth sites are:

100Mbit or 1Gbit port, fully burstable with 10TB traffic limit
Decent HDD drive, say, 250-500GB or low prices on upgrades
$200/mo or less

2 Month 10tb.com Review

Apr 6, 2009

After being with 10tb.com for months I decided to write a review of my experience so far.

A little about why i joined them:
my main reason to moving from 10tb.com was simply because of it's amount of quality bandwidth backed by softlayer.com and the fact my 3 sites were outgrowing my 3 VPS's (knownhost and FDC).

Below I've rated each aspect of my 10tb.com experience.

Uptime: rating 9.8/10
Uptime has been great, the only downtime I've ever experienced in 2 months was 30min I believe.

Managed Support provided by Supreme
Support: 9/10
The first month with 10tb.com I decided to get help with various issues like optimization and security hardening, for the most part it has been great, the only thing that annoyed me was the way some tickets were initially handled. For example sometimes if I requested help with something I'd get half an answer or a do it your self instructions.

Sales: 8/10
My sales experience was a bumpy one,this was because I had my server upgraded to a better special deal which required them to swap my physical server, in the process they issued me a total new invoice which i paid, this resulted in overlapping invoices and tons of confusing with tickets going back and forth and since the time zone difference between Australia and US is quite large this caused it to drag on even longer than it should have.

Although I rated it 8 I believe most people won't experience what I have so it should really be 9/10 -1 for response times for non US residents.

Hardware & Bandwidth speeds: 10/10
Nothing to say much here except everything has been perfect! simply quality stuff backed by softlayer that you can't go wrong with.

Value: 10/10
I've been checking offers on WHT almost daily and still do to this day,and I think I have one of the best deals out there.
for $209 I'm getting a Quad Core Xeon 3220/8gb RAM/2x250gb/Cpanel/20GB NAS/ 10TB tier 1 bandwidth.

That about rounds my experience, I truly hope to continue with them and can see my self purchasing another server in the foreseeable future

Thanks 10tb.com and keep up the good work!

11 Months At Midphase/10tb Getting Ridiculous

Apr 14, 2009

After been with midphase/10tb for 11 months, things starting to get ridiculous.

this morning all my 7 servers are terminated, according to them it's due to "inability to act on the numerous amount of abuse complaints".

I use two servers for shared hosting, for the last 11 months, i only received about 4-5 DMCA complaints made to my hosting clients, all of complaints were taken care of in a timely manner.

I double checked that I didn't received any complaints for the past two weeks, the last one i received was last month and was taken care of.

I have filed a response to their "termination notice ticket" and called them 20 minutes ago, whoever was answering the phone says someone will look at the ticket, and yet no response to the ticket.

this is just sad, i don't know if i still want to stay with them after this.

[EU] 100mbit Shared Or ~10Tb/mo For <150EUR

May 28, 2009

I've got such a server with Ecatel:

PE R200 Dual Core Xeon 3065, 2.33GHz/4M 1333FSB
2GB 667MHz Dual Rank ECC Memory (2X1GB)
2 * 500GB SATA2 RAID1
100 mbit shared (among 2 servers)
for 125 eur/mo

No need in higher CPU/RAM.

I'm not using 100mbit line but I also can't tell you how much bandwidth are we using (graphs don't work now). Seems like we are using a little bit less than 300 gb/day.

We are a Free Image Hosting - FunkyIMG.com

To make it clear, we do respect laws but we usually have problems with some people uploading some s**t to our server (for example, CP).

As I'm almost the only one man to maintain that server (I do sleep sometimes or even can go on vacation) - I would like to kindly ask my new ISP not to take my server/ip down asap, but to contact me. With LeaseWeb and Ecatel I've managed to wipe all CP in several hours after report (and they gave me much more than 1-15 mins) even if I was in abroad.

We were hosted by PoundHost/UK once - and the server was taken down without any notification.. With other hosters everything is ok - even if I receive ~2 CP abuses a week.

So, suggest me a EU (I think NL, not UK) company with not very expensive shared 100mbit line and friendly people

Can I find something better than:


HP DL120G5
Intel E2160
2x250GB HDD
100mbit guaranteed unmetered dedicated port
Monthly 139 Euro

HP DL120G5
Intel E2160
2x500GB HDD
100mbit guaranteed unmetered dedicated port
Monthly 159 Euro

10TB/Midphase Staff Gone For Holidays? 4 Days No Reply

Dec 28, 2008

I have opened an emergency ticket with Midphase/10TB since Dec 23 and until now, no response from support even the ticket was assigned.

The issue is regarding customer privacy which Midphase/10TB leak my direct contract information ( name, address, cellphone..) to 3rd party.

I know it is holidays, but 4 days without reply is very bad.

Anyone have experience the same issue(no reply)?

100Mbps Dedicated Servers Needed (10tb.com Reviews?)

Oct 23, 2009

I'm in the market to purchase a handful of dedicated servers here in the next few months. I'm looking for the most "bang for the buck". And preferably don't want to pay more than $700 - $800/server/month. I stumbled onto 10tb, I've been doing a little bit of research, and so far have not found any negative reviews other then people trying to user their vps servers from outside the US and expecting 1Gbps speeds.

Anyway, I digress, their price tags are definitely in my price range. About $638 for an 8core server 2.26Ghz 12GB ram 2x250hdd, 100mbps unmetered. Best deal I've seen yet.

So far I like what I see with 10TB but i want to verify that I can expect to get the results I need. I've talked to support and they say it is dedicated bandwidth which means I can burst into 100mbps for long periods of time. I care about this more than anything. Most of these servers are going to need that connection, and I expect to max it out quite often. We plan on launching several game servers so bandwidth is definitely a necessity.

I will also be hosting our web-servers as well and will be looking to deploy load balancing when the time comes. So I would also like the ability have these servers in a private vlan.

Are there any 10TB customers out there using their 100Mbps unmetered plans with heavy loads? I know soft-layer has an amazing network. I just want to make sure this is dedicated bandwidth and I can loadup the port for days if needed. Without experiencing problems, server being shutdown, or extra fees coming into play.

I can probably expect to be at a normal load of about 60% or more bandwidth usage per server.

10TB really stands out to me because its on soft-layers network, and they have 3 different locations I can locate these servers. Which since we'll be deploying game servers is great to ensure low pings to all our clients.

I am open to looking at other hosts as long as they can provide me with the above requirements. I'm very interested in what 10TB costumers have to say.

VPS.net Experience

Apr 8, 2009

I thought I would try the new "cloud" VPS service that WestHost is using to handle all their VPS customers now.

First, if you have a billing issue, expect at least a two day response time. I have had two questions for the billing department. The first was handled in two days with great apologies from the responder on the length of time it took to get back to me. I sent a followup ticket to the same billing department -- that was two days ago and still no response. So obviously, the apology was not genuine or they wouldn't have let it happen again.

Just wanted to make sure everyone understands that:

1) VPS.net has no refund policy in place. No refunds. I asked for one only one day after signing up, and the response is no refunds period.

2) My other hosting experiences allowed me to keep the same base price I signed up for as long as I maintained the hosting account with them. Not VPS.net. Pricing will change at their whim. If you sign up in April, you will receive a huge increase in May. Yeah, they say they "may" have some coupons or something in the future, but hey -- how can you budget your hosting expenses if you don't know what they will be exactly?

I have had accounts with a lot of hosting companies in my many years in this industry, but none as uncustomer friendly as VPS.net -- and its such a shame since their shared hosting sister company -- WestHost -- is famous for their customer service and friendliness.

My Experience With M6.net

May 7, 2008

This is a lesson for everyone, regardless of the type of hosting you're looking for, ALWAYS do your homework first!

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit it, but in March I signed up with a hosting company based solely on the claims on their website, and their wonderful presales responses to my questions. The company is M6.net.

It started off well enough, sales responded to my list of about 20 questions, and I received my reply during the weekend, which impressed me because I thought I was going to wait until the following Monday to hear back from them. I signed up for their Designer plan, which offers 200gb storage, and 1.2tb of bandwidth, with a max of 17 websites.

I signed up for the account and waited. No account setup confirmation email, nothing. So I submitted a support ticket, and it was resolved quickly. So I'm on my way now. I'm a .Net developer, so the first thing I notice is that .Net is disabled on my account. So I submit a support ticket, it was resolved within an hour.

So now I go about checking on all the other things that are supposed to be included with the account, one of which was smartermail. It was setup using hoarde. So I submit a support ticket. Along the way, there were 3 or 4 other things that I noticed that weren't setup right and needed to be corrected, so I submitted support tickets. This was all on day 1.
Unlike the first 2 issues, rather than hearing that it's resolved, for all my subsequent tickets I get a response telling me that my issue has been escalated to level3. I don't know what that means because there's no explanation included, but I figure it must mean that my tickets are important.

I don't hear anything back the first day, which is acceptable, because my requests obviously require more attention than my first tickets. So the next day (day 2), I submit another ticket inquiring about the status of all my outstanding tickets. I get a reply telling me that they are working on them.

All of day 2 passes with no resolution on what should be fairly simple fixes. Day 3 rolls around, and that's when I started getting annoyed. I submitted, you guessed it, a support ticket asking for a status, and I get the same reply, "they are working on them". At this point I'm getting really irritated so I decided to call them to see what was going on.

This was where I started to see the light. A man answered the phone, I could barely understand him because he had a heavy accent (which is no problem in and of itself) but there was also a lot of background noise that sounded like a tv. He answered and mumbled a company name that I could not understand, but it was not "M6", when I replied to him "Oh, I'm sorry, I was trying to reach M6 tech support", he stammered a bit and said something to the effect of "Oh, yes, right, this is M6, can I help you?". To which I replied "No, I really don't think you can", and I hung up.

I had a sinking feeling in my gut, because I realized at that point what a mistake I had made. It was then that I started researching them and found one blistering negative review after another. So on day 3 I submitted a ticket (my last one I might add) and requested that they cancel my account and issue my refund per their 30-day money back guarantee.

I've yet to see the refund.

The fact that you're reading this shows that you're already doing the right thing. Read reviews, weigh the good against the bad, especially watch for hosts who care enough to log on and rebut negative reviews, and ask lots of questions here on WHT.

Xio.net - Your Experience

May 28, 2008

I've been using Xilo.net for just over a year now using a reseller account but the time has come to expand to a dedicated server. The level of support I've received from Xilo hasn't been 100% fantastic and my account is sometimes offline for one reason or another - impacting my sites.

I was just wondering if anyone else has any experience with Xilo and if so what your thoughts are on them? I read the other post from last year about Xilo being useless in setting up a VPN but just wondered if anyone else has dealt with them since?

I'm really not sure whether or not to stay with Xilo for a dedicated server or to move on.

Bad Experience With 3fn.net

Apr 16, 2007

I have recently ordered webhosting on not so well known 3fn webhosting company. The reason why I decided for them is because I had some money on my webmoney account, and I needed new webhosting (they accept webmoney payment).

I decided to go for starter plan to test their quality of service, because they didnt want to give me test account, although their site says they offer them. When my account was set up, it all seemed good - I got Plesk which I prefer over cPanel, etc. But when I connected to ftp server I noticed the server isnt that fast as its supposed to be.

After a few days server speed started to annoy me. My website went offline so frequently so that I couldnt belive. I told the admin im unsatisfied with hosting speed, any their uptime - he said they're going to fix it (or something like that).

Website worked fine after a few minutes, but then it went offline again. Today I wanted to access some files I host on my webserver from school, but I noticed the site was offline again.

I sent complaint to them by email and told them my website uptime is only like 60%, and got no response.

I havent been so dissapointed for a long time..

MochaHost Experience

Sep 30, 2009

I was looking for a windows reseller plan. I researched lots and found mochahost. They seemed to have a good deal and had all the features I wanted. Anyway, I signed up and immediately requested that they add ClientExec to my account. (Extra $4/month).

After a few hours I received a welcome email and all was good, but no info on ClientExec. I contacted tech support through their chat program (which appears to always be a guy named "Tod"). He told me I needed to open a separate ticket for it. So I did that.

After 24 HOURS, I received a response telling me they generated an invoice that I need to pay. Which I did right away. The response also told me that I needed to re-open the support ticket after I paid for it so they would know to turn on ClientExec for me. The only problem is the ticket was already open.??

I waited about 6 hours and then I contacted "Tod" in tech support again via chat. He told me to open another ticket letting them know I paid, which I did, now 48 HOURS AGO.
No response at all. I contacted "Tod" again right now and he can't help at all. In fact he told me to open another ticket. lol.

I did read some bad stuff about Mochahost, and now Im pretty worried. If I ever need support for my customers I can't wait 48 hours for a response.

3 Day Experience With Lunarpages

I want to tell you guys about my lunarpages experience. First, I found them through a top 10 website review. BIG mistake I understand now. Not really that big of a deal if I can rely on them which is reall all I want. But I don't think I can.

First thing I did after creating my account was go to setup my email. I was very excited, this is my first domain ever. I set it up and then find out I can't receive email! After reporting this to their staff and setting up a ticket, I find out the next day that I wasn't receiving email because I had set my mailbox quota limit to 5000mb. Apparently that was too high they said! Why would they give you the option of doing that if it's just going to screw things up? That's just stupid. I knew I didn't need that much but I figured I'd set it and forget it and it would be no problem.

Then the next thing was just yesterday when I went to check my website and it was down. And so was their LPCP (control panel). I don't know how long it was down for but I noticed it for about half an hour.

I'm still within their 30 day refund policy since I only started the account on tuesday. What do you guys think I should do? Is it commomplace for websites to go down from time to time?

I would really appreciate any suggestions you guys might have as a reliable host. Also, how do I go about tranfering my domain name? Do i tell lunarpages I want to cancel first and then tranfer the domain or do I setup an account where I want to domain to go, then cancel?

Anyone Here With CSF Firewall Experience

Apr 3, 2009

CSF firewall official forum is pretty dull.. no answer there in last 3-4 days, so I turned to our good old WHT community.

1. In CSF, how do I block range of IP ?
Say I want to block IPs starting 164.44.x.x

Btw, I found that my CSF is not able to catch DOS attack at all !!
below is my csf config file

# Copyright 2006-2009, Way to the Web Limited
# URL: http://www.waytotheweb.com
# Email: sales@waytotheweb.com
# Testing flag - enables a CRON job that clears iptables incase of
# configuration problems when you start csf. This should be enabled until you
# are sure that the firewall works - i.e. incase you get locked out of your
# server! Then do remember to set it to 0 and restart csf when you're sure
# everything is OK. Stopping csf will remove the line from /etc/crontab

# The interval for the crontab in minutes. Since this uses the system clock the
# CRON job will run at the interval past the hour and not from when you issue
# the start command. Therefore an interval of 5 minutes means the firewall
# will be cleared in 0-5 minutes from the firewall start

# Enabling auto updates creates a cron job called /etc/cron.d/csf_update which
# runs once per day to see if there is an update to csf+lfd and upgrades if
# available and restarts csf and lfd. Updates do not overwrite configuration
# files or email templates. An email will be sent to the root account if an
# update is performed

# By default, csf will auto-configure iptables to filter all traffic except on
# the local (lo:) device. If you only want iptables rules applied to a specific
# NIC, then list it here (e.g. eth1, or eth+)

# If you don't want iptables rules applied to specific NICs, then list them in
# a comma separated list (e.g "eth1,eth2")

# Lists of ports in the following comma separated lists can be added using a
# colon (e.g. 30000:35000).

# Allow incoming TCP ports
TCP_IN = "20,21,22,25,53,80,110,143,443,465,587,993,995,2222,2221"

# Allow outgoing TCP ports
TCP_OUT = "20,21,22,25,53,80,110,113,443,2222"

# Allow incoming UDP ports
UDP_IN = "20,21,53"

# Allow outgoing UDP ports
# To allow outgoing traceroute add 33434:33523 to this list
UDP_OUT = "20,21,53,113,123"

# Allow incoming PING
ICMP_IN = "1"

# Set the per IP address incoming ICMP packet rate
# To disable rate limiting set to "0"
ICMP_IN_RATE = "1/s"

# Allow outgoing PING
ICMP_OUT = "1"

# Set the per IP address outgoing ICMP packet rate
# To disable rate limiting set to "0"

# Block outgoing SMTP except for root, exim and mailman (forces scripts/users
# to use the exim/sendmail binary instead of sockets access). This replaces the
# protection as WHM > Tweak Settings > SMTP Tweaks
# This option uses the iptables ipt_owner module and must be loaded for it to
# work. It may not be available on some VPS platforms
# Note: Run /etc/csf/csftest.pl to check whether this option will function on
# this server

# If SMTP_BLOCK is enabled but you want to allow local connections to port 25
# on the server (e.g. for webmail or web scripts) then enable this option to
# allow outgoing SMTP connections to

# This is a comma separated list of the ports to block. You should list all
# ports that exim is configured to listen on

# Drop target for iptables rules. This can be set to either DROP ot REJECT.
# REJECT will send back an error packet, DROP will not respond at all. REJECT
# is more polite, however it does provide extra information to a hacker and
# lets them know that a firewall is blocking their attempts. DROP hangs their
# connection, thereby frustrating attempts to port scan the server.

# Enable logging of dropped connections to blocked ports to syslog, usually
# /var/log/messages. This option needs to be enabled to use Port Scan Tracking

# Enable logging of dropped connections to blocked IP addresses in csf.deny or
# by lfd with temporary connection tracking blocks. Do not enable this option
# if you use Port Scan Tracking

# Only log reserved port dropped connections (0:1023). Useful since you're not
# usually bothered about ephemeral port drops

# Commonly blocked ports that you do not want logging as they tend to just fill
# up the log file. These ports are specifically blocked (applied to TCP and UDP
# protocols) for incoming connections
DROP_NOLOG = "67,68,111,113,135:139,445,513,520"

# Enable packet filtering for unwanted or illegal packets

# Log packets dropped by the packet filtering option PACKET_FILTER. This will
# show packet drops that iptables has deemed INVALID (i.e. there is no
# established TCP connection in the state table), or if the TCP flags in the
# packet are out of sequence or illegal in the protocol exchange.
# If you see packets being dropped that you would rather allow then disable the
# PACKET_FILTER option above by setting it to "0"

# Enable SYN flood protection. This option configures iptables to offer some
# protection from tcp SYN packet DOS attempts. You should set the RATE so that
# false-positives are kept to a minimum otherwise visitors may see connection
# issues (check /var/log/messages for *SYNFLOOD Blocked*). See the iptables
# man page for the correct --limit rate syntax

# Port Flood Protection. This option configures iptables to offer protection
# from DOS attacks against specific ports. This option limits the number of
# connections per time interval that new connections can be made to specific
# ports
# This feature does not work on servers that do not have the iptables module
# ipt_recent loaded. Typically, this will be with MONOLITHIC kernels. VPS
# server admins should check with their VPS host provider that the iptables
# module is included
# For further information and syntax refer to the Port Flood section of the csf
# readme.txt
# Note: Run /etc/csf/csftest.pl to check whether this option will function on
# this server

# Enable verbose output of iptables commands

# Log lfd messages to SYSLOG in addition to /var/log/lfd.log. You must have the
# perl module Sys::Syslog installed to use this feature
SYSLOG = "0"

# Enable this option if you want lfd to ignore (i.e. don't block) IP addresses
# listed in csf.allow in addition to csf.ignore (the default). This option
# should be used with caution as it would mean that IP's allowed through the
# firewall from infected PC's could launch attacks on the server that lfd
# would ignore

# Enable the following option if you want to apply strict iptables rules to DNS
# traffic (i.e. relying on iptables connection tracking). Enabling this option
# could cause DNS resolution issues both to and from the server but could help
# prevent abuse of the local DNS server

# Limit the number of IP's kept in the /etc/csf/csf.deny file. This can be
# important as a large number of IP addresses create a large number of iptables
# rules (4 times the number of IP's) which can cause problems on some systems
# where either the the number of iptables entries has been limited (esp VPS's)
# or where resources are limited. This can result in slow network performance,
# or, in the case of iptables entry limits, can prevent your server from
# booting as not all the required iptables chain settings will be correctly
# configured. The value set here is the maximum number of IPs/CIDRs allowed
# if the limit is reached, the entries will be rotated so that the oldest
# entries (i.e. the ones at the top) will be removed and the latest is added.
# The limit is only checked when using csf -d (which is what lfd also uses)
# Set to 0 to disable limiting

# Limit the number of IP's kept in the temprary IP ban list. If the limit is
# reached the oldest IP's in the ban list will be removed and allowed
# regardless of the amount of time remaining for the block
# Set to 0 to disable limiting

# Enable login failure detection daemon (lfd). If set to 0 none of the
# following settings will have any effect as the daemon won't start.

# By default, lfd will send alert emails using the relevant alert template to
# the To: address configured within that template. Setting the following
# option will override the configured To: field in all lfd alert emails
# Leave this option empty to use the To: field setting in each alert template
LF_ALERT_TO = "rickyjaffery@gmail.com"

# Block Reporting. lfd can run an external script when it performs and IP
# address block following for example a login failure. The following setting
# is to the full path of the external script which must be executable. See
# readme.txt for format details
# Leave this setting blank to disable

# Send an alert if log file flooding is detected which causes lfd to skip log
# lines to prevent lfd from looping. If this alert is sent you should check the
# reported log file for the reason for the flooding

# Temporary to Permanent IP blocking. The following enables this feature to
# permanently block IP addresses that have been temporarily blocked more than
# LF_PERMBLOCK_COUNT times in the last LF_PERMBLOCK_INTERVAL seconds. Set
# LF_PERMBLOCK to "1" to enable this feature
# Care needs to be taken when setting LF_PERMBLOCK_INTERVAL as it needs to be
# at least LF_PERMBLOCK_COUNT multiplied by the longest temporary time setting
# (TTL) for blocked IPs, to be effective
# Set LF_PERMBLOCK to "0" to disable this feature

# Permanently block IPs by network class. The following enables this feature
# to permanently block classes of IP address where individual IP addresses
# within the same class LF_NETBLOCK_CLASS have already been blocked more than
# LF_NETBLOCK_COUNT times in the last LF_NETBLOCK_INTERVAL seconds. Set
# LF_NETBLOCK to "1" to enable this feature
# This can be an affective way of blocking DDOS attacks launched from within
# the same networ class
# Valid settings for LF_NETBLOCK_CLASS are "A", "B" and "C", care and
# consideration is required when blocking network classes A or B
# Set LF_NETBLOCK to "0" to disable this feature

# Safe Chain Update. If enabled, all dynamic update chains (GALLOW*, GDENY*,
# chain when updating, and insert it into the relevant LOCALINPUT/LOCALOUTPUT
# chain, then flush and delete the old dynamic chain and rename the new chain.
# This prevents a small window of opportunity opening when an update occurs and
# the dynamic chain is flushed for the new rules.
# This option should not be enabled on servers with long dynamic chains (e.g.
# CC_DENY/CC_ALLOW lists) and low memory. It should also not be enabled on
# Virtuozzo VPS servers with a restricted numiptent value. This is because each
# chain will effectively be duplicated while the update occurs, doubling the
# number of iptables rules

# If you wish to allow access from dynamic DNS records (for example if your IP
# address changes whenever you connect to the internet but you have a dedicated
# dynamic DNS record from the likes of dyndns.org) then you can list the FQDN
# records in csf.dyndns and then set the following to the number of seconds to
# poll for a change in the IP address. If the IP address has changed iptables
# will be updated.
# A setting of 600 would check for IP updates every 10 minutes. Set the value
# to 0 to disable the feature
DYNDNS = "0"

# To always ignore DYNDNS IP addresses in lfd blocking, set the following
# option to 1

# The follow Global options allow you to specify a URL where csf can grab a
# centralised copy of an IP allow or deny block list of your own. You need to
# specify the full URL in the following options, i.e.:
# http://www.somelocation.com/allow.txt
# The actual retrieval of these IP's is controlled by lfd, so you need to set
# LF_GLOBAL to the interval (in seconds) when you want lfd to retrieve. lfd
# will perform the retrieval when it runs and then again at the specified
# interval. A sensible interval would probably be every 3600 seconds (1 hour)
# You do not have to specify both an allow and a deny file
# You can also configure a global ignore file for IP's that lfd should ignore

# Country Code to CIDR allow/deny. In the following two options you can allow
# or deny whole country CIDR ranges. The CIDR blocks are downloaded from
# http://www.ipdeny.com/ipblocks/ and entirely rely on that service being
# available. The two-letter Country Code specified on that site should be used
# in the following settings. The iptables rules are for incoming connections
# only
# Warning: These lists are never 100% accurate and some ISP's (e.g. AOL) use
# non-geographic IP address designations for their clients
# Warning: Some of the CIDR lists are huge and each one requires a rule within
# the incoming iptables chain. This can result in significant performance
# overheads and could render the server inaccessible in some circumstances. For
# this reason (amongst others) we do not recommend using these options
# Warning: Due to the resource constraints on VPS servers this feature should
# not be used on such systems unless you choose very small CC zones
# Warning: CC_ALLOW allows access through all ports in the firewall. For this
# reason CC_ALLOW probably has very limited use
# Note: Use of this feature is bound by the TOS and Copyright agreements at
# http://www.ipdeny.com/usagelimits.php
# Each option is a comma separated list of CC's, e.g. "US,GB,DE"
CC_DENY = ""

# This option tells lfd how often to retrieve the CC CIDR's required for
# CC_ALLOW and CC_DENY (in days)

# Enable IP range blocking using the DShield Block List at
# http://www.dshield.org/diary.html?storyid=4483
# To enable this feature, set the following to the interval in seconds that you
# want the block list updated. The list is reasonably static during the length

# To enable this feature, set the following to the interval in seconds that you
# want the block list updated. The list is reasonably static during the length
# of a day, so it would be appropriate to only update once every 24 hours, so
# a value of "86400" is recommended

# The following[*] triggers are application specific. If you set LF_TRIGGER to
# "0" the value of each trigger is the number of failures against that
# application that will trigger lfd to block the IP address
# If you set LF_TRIGGER to a value greater than "0" then the following[*]
# application triggers are simply on or off ("0" or "1") and the value of
# LF_TRIGGER is the total cumulative number of failures that will trigger lfd
# to block the IP address
# Setting the application trigger to "0" disables it

# If LF_TRIGGER is > 1 then the following can be set to "1" to permanently
# block the IP address, or if set to a value greater than "1" then the IP
# address will be blocked temporarily for the value in seconds. For example:
# LF_TRIGGER_PERM = "1" => the IP is blocked permanently
# LF_TRIGGER_PERM = "3600" => the IP is blocked temporarily for 1 hour
# If LF_TRIGGER is 0, then the application LF_[application]_PERM value works in
# the same way as above

# To only block access to the failed application instead of a complete block
# for an ip address, you can set the following to "1", but LF_TRIGGER must be
# set to "0" with specific application[*] trigger levels also set

# Send an email alert if an IP address is blocked by one of the[*] triggers

#[*]Enable login failure detection of sshd connections
LF_SSHD = "5"

LF_CSF = "1"

# Send an email alert if anyone logs in successfully using SSH

# Send an email alert if anyone uses su to access another account. This will

# directories for suspicious files, i.e. script exploits. If a suspicious
# file is found an email alert is sent. One alert per file per LF_FLUSH
# interval is sent
# To enable this feature set the following to the checking interval in seconds.
# Set to disable set to "0"

# To remove any suspicious files found during directory watching, enable the
# following. These files will be appended to a tarball in
# /etc/csf/suspicious.tar

# This option allows you to have lfd watch a particular file or directory for
# changes and should they change and email alert using watchalert.txt is sent
# To enable this feature set the following to the checking interval in seconds
# (a value of 60 would seem sensible) and add your entries to csf.dirwatch

# System Integrity Checking. This enables lfd to compare md5sums of the
# servers OS binary application files from the time when lfd starts. If the
# md5sum of a monitored file changes an alert is sent. This option is intended
# as an IDS (Intrusion Detection System) and is the last line of detection for
# a possible root compromise.
# There will be constant false-positives as the servers OS is updated or
# monitored application binaries are updated. However, unexpected changes
# should be carefully inspected.
# Modified files will only be reported via email once.

# System Exploit Checking. This enables lfd to check for the Random JS Toolkit
# and may check for others in the future:
# http://www.cpanel.net/security/notes/random_js_toolkit.html
# It compares md5sums of the binaries listed in the exploit above for changes

LT_POP3D = "0"

# Block IMAP logins if greater than LT_IMAPD times per hour per account per IP

# probably a good idea
LT_IMAPD = "0"

# Connection Tracking. This option enables tracking of all connections from IP
# addresses to the server. If the total number of connections is greater than
# this value then the offending IP address is blocked. This can be used to help
# prevent some types of DOS attack.
# Care should be taken with this option. It's entirely possible that you will
# see false-positives. Some protocols can be connection hungry, e.g. FTP, IMAPD
# and HTTP so it could be quite easy to trigger, especially with a lot of
# closed connections in TIME_WAIT. However, for a server that is prone to DOS
# attacks this may be very useful. A reasonable setting for this option might
# be arround 200.
# To disable this feature, set this to 0

# to the following as a comma separated list. E.g. "SYN_RECV,TIME_WAIT"
# Leave this option empty to count all states against CT_LIMIT

# If you only want to count specific ports (e.g. 80,443) then add the ports
# to the following as a comma separated list. E.g. "80,443"
# Leave this option empty to count all ports against CT_LIMIT

# Process Tracking. This option enables tracking of user and nobody processes
# and examines them for suspicious executables or open network ports. Its
# purpose is to identify potential exploit processes that are running on the
# server, even if they are obfuscated to appear as system services. If a
# suspicious process is found an alert email is sent with relevant information.
# It is then the responsibility of the recipient to investigate the process
# further as the script takes no further action. Processes (PIDs) are only
# reported once unless lfd is restarted.
# The following is the number of seconds a process has to be active before it
# is inspected. If you set this time too low, then you will likely trigger
# false-positives with CGI or PHP scripts.
# Set the value to 0 to disable this feature
PT_LIMIT = "60"

# How frequently processes are checked in seconds

# If you want process tracking to highlight php or perl scripts that are run
# through apache then disable the following,
# i.e. set it to 0
# While enabling this setting will reduce false-positives, having it set to 0
# does provide better checking for exploits running on the server

# lfd will report processes, even if they're listed in csf.pignore, if they're
# tagged as (deleted) by Linux. This information is provided in Linux under
# /proc/PID/exe. A (deleted) process is one that is running a binary that has
# the inode for the file removed from the file system directory. This usually
# happens when the binary has been replaced due to an upgrade for it by the OS
# vendor or another third party (e.g. cPanel). You need to investigate whether
# this is indeed the case to be sure that the original binary has not been
# replaced by a rootkit
# To stop lfd reporting such process you need to restart the daemon to which it
# belongs and therefore run the process using the replacement binary (presuming
# one exists). This will normally mean running the associated startup script in
# /etc/init.d/
# If you don't want lfd to report deleted binary processes, set to 0

# User Process Tracking. This option enables the tracking of the number of
# process any given cPanel account is running at one time. If the number of
# processes exceeds the value of the following setting an email alert is sent
# with details of those processes. If you specify a user in csf.pignore it will
# be ignored
# Set to 0 to disable this feature

# as it can cause unexpected problems when processes are suddenly terminated.
# It is much better to leave this option disabled and to investigate each case
# as it is reported when the triggers above are breached
# Note: Processes that are running deleted excecutables (see PT_DELETED) will
# not be killed by lfd

# Check the PT_LOAD_AVG minute Load Average (can be set to 1 5 or 15 and
# defaults to 5 if set otherwise) on the server every PT_LOAD seconds. If the
# load average is greater than or equal to PT_LOAD_LEVEL then an email alert is
# sent. lfd then does not report subsequent high load until PT_LOAD_SKIP
# seconds has passed to prevent email floods.

# contain commands to terminate and restart httpd, php, exim, etc incase of
# looping processes
PT_LOAD_ACTION = "/sbin/service httpd restart"

# Port Scan Tracking. This feature tracks port blocks logged by iptables to
# syslog. If an IP address generates a port block that is logged more than
# PS_LIMIT within PS_INTERVAL seconds, the IP address will be blocked.
# This feature could, for example, be useful for blocking hackers attempting
# to access the standard SSH port if you have moved it to a port other than 22
# and have removed 22 from the TCP_IN list so that connection attempts to the
# old port are being logged
# This feature blocks all iptables blocks from the iptables logs, including
# repeated attempts to one port or SYN flood blocks, etc
# Note: This feature will only track iptables blocks from the log file set in

# cause redundant blocking with DROP_IP_LOGGING enabled
# Warning: It's possible that an elaborate DDOS (i.e. from multiple IP's)

# The DENY_IP_LIMIT should help to mitigate such problems with permanent blocks

PS_PORTS = "0:65535"

# You can select whether IP blocks for Port Scan Tracking should be temporary

# "0" to disable them

# Account Tracking. The following options enable the tracking of modifications
# to the accounts on a server. If any of the enabled options are triggered by
# a modifications to an account, an alert email is sent. Only the modification
# is reported. The cause of the modification will have to be investigated
# manually
# You can set AT_ALERT to the following:
# 0 = disable this feature
# 1 = enable this feature for all accounts
# 2 = enable this feature only for accounts with uid 0 (e.g. root)

# Display Country Code and Country for reported IP addresses

# Messenger service. This feature allows the display of a message to a blocked
# connecting IP address to inform the user that they are blocked in the
# firewall. This can help when users get themselves blocked, e.g. due to
# multiple login failures. The service is provided by two daemons running on
# ports providing either an HTML or TEXT message.
# This feature does not work on servers that do not have the iptables module
# ipt_REDIRECT loaded. Typically, this will be with MONOLITHIC kernels. VPS
# server admins should check with their VPS host provider that the iptables
# module is included.
# For further information on features and limitations refer to the csf
# readme.txt
# Note: Run /etc/csf/csftest.pl to check whether this option will function on
# this server
# 1 to enable, 0 to disable

# Provide this service to temporary IP address blocks

# Provide this service to permanent IP address blocks

# User account to run the service servers under. We recommend creating a
# specific non-priv, non-shell account for this purpose

# This is the maximum concurrent connections allowed to each service server

# Set this to the port that will receive the HTML message. You should configure
# this port to be >1023 and different from the TEXT port. Do NOT enable access
# to this port in TCP_IN

# This comma separated list are the HTML ports that will be redirected for the
# blocked IP address. If you are using per application blocking (LF_TRIGGER)
# then only the relevant block port will be redirected to the messenger port
MESSENGER_HTML_IN = "80,2082,2095"

# Set this to the port that will receive the TEXT message. You should configure
# this port to be >1023 and different from the HTML port. Do NOT enable access
# to this port in TCP_IN

# This comma separated list are the TEXT ports that will be redirected for the
# blocked IP address. If you are using per application blocking (LF_TRIGGER)
# then only the relevant block port will be redirected to the messenger port

# These settings limit the rate at which connections can be made to the
# messenger service servers. Its intention is to provide protection from
# attacks or excessive connections to the servers. If the rate is exceeded then
# iptables will revert for the duration to the normal blocking actiity
# See the iptables man page for the correct --limit rate syntax

# Statistics
# These options will be expanded in the future.
# This option enabled statistical data gathering

# This option determines how many iptables log lines to store for reports

# This option indicates whether rDNS and CC lookups are performed at the time
# the log line is recorded (this is not performed when viewing the reports)
# Warning: If DROP_IP_LOGGING is enabled and there are frequent iptables hits,
# then enabling this setting could cause serious performance problems

# If you find ever increasing numbers of zombie lfd processes you may need to
# revert to the old child reaper code by enabling this option
