    GDPR - what is KH doing as the processor?

    I have not seen anything from KH in regards to GDPR compliance - while there may not be any direct business in the EU, KH for sure is a processor for any company/individual that is storing personal data protected under GDPR on any of the KH servers (providing storage, backup etc. services makes...

    KnownHost Santa Delivers: Managed KVM Cloud Servers & More

    Skyview - yes, you will have significantly less bandwidth allowance (no matter if it ever will be an issue, it is a restriction), about 10% less disk space at a cost that is quite a bit higher unless you commit to paying a full year up-front. All in the hopes that SSD performance will make a...

    KnownHost Santa Delivers: Managed KVM Cloud Servers & More

    Hmm... looks like I will not invite Santa back into my house ;-) For 5% less disc space, almost 60% less bandwidth allowance, an unknown impact on performance and a price increase of over 10% for the new option, it does not look like anything that would make sense (VPS-4 to MVPS-2). I think...

    KnownHost Santa Delivers: Managed KVM Cloud Servers & More

    Thanks for the quick response (try to be nice for next year's Santa visit already? ;-) ) How about the bandwidth cuts? Was that a serious concern/issue in the past with people reaching the 11TB limits or simply a more real world look at how much bandwidth will typically be used by the vast...

    KnownHost Santa Delivers: Managed KVM Cloud Servers & More

    So, when comparing my current VPS-4 with the MVPS-3 package, there seems to be some change in the CPU assignment from 16 vCPU down to 4 vCPU ?? and the significant cut in included bandwidth from 11 TB to 4 TB, an increase of 2 GB in memory and a slight increase in disk space? Would love to...

    KnownHost Santa 2016

    Looks like Santa had me on the bad list this year, did not see any changes to my VPS.

    Merry Christmas team at KH! I hope you all (including the poor guys working today) have a relaxing and enjoyable Christmas. May 2017 bring growth, expansion and great sales and from my side I hope that you will be able to continue as great admins as the ones you have today. Response times and...

    ConfigServer Exploit scanner - anybody using it?

    No, I just bought it off their website, downloaded the script and ran it. Was actually pretty straight forward. In my cxs.defaults, I got clamdsock=/var/clamd and no problems with it (as far as I can tell). The effort for me was getting mod_security stood up, but I am sure that the KH team...

    ModSecurity

    I have been using mod_security with the standard, unmodified ruleset for a VPS with about 15 sites on it (wordpress, joomla, other opensource packages) for about a week now and only had a positive experience, no false positives yet. It can be switched on and off with a single click in the rule...

    How do the spoof my email address?

    When you set up an outlook account for example, you can set up whatever e-mail server you want to use and put whatever you want in the "Email Address" field, even the name of the recipient - that then looks as if you sent it to yourself. (btw, no harm trying it and sending a friend an e-mail...

    Paranoid or love the world? How does your csf.conf look

    Well, I admit, I may be paranoid, but my country block for csf is getting longer and longer (see below).... What do you do to keep the bad guys out and log files manageable ? CC_DENY =...

    ConfigServer Exploit scanner - anybody using it?

    Sounds good. I have had it installed for 2 days now and besides all the infected files (I scheduled a daily scan via cron which e-mails me a detailed report), it also analysis active traffic and blocks IPs using known exploit templates, protocol attacks and so on. Very cool and seems to be very...

    ConfigServer Exploit scanner - anybody using it?

    Thanks Scott. I bit the bullet and bought it for $60 on their site. Installation is pretty straight forward and the first exploit report gave me work for almost a day :-( Anyhow, I think it is worth the money and saw that they are offering bundles with their csf product. Not sure if so, but I...

    ConfigServer Exploit scanner - anybody using it?

    I recently saw that configserver (provides lfd/csf) offers an exploit scanner and was wondering if anybody here is/was using it and if so, how good it works. I have many Joomla and Wordpress sites hosted and there are always a few that don't update their installations and this could help at...

    cPanel Backups to Amazon Drive (not S3)

    Not uploading to the Amazon drive, but to S3 - maybe possible to adjust upload routine... I wrote my own little script to do account (not system) backups and upload to S3. They run via the root crontab and can handle daily, weekly and snapshots with different retention periods. I needed not...
