Website Security on Every Step

Learn more about how FastGuard protects your website and the technologies we use

While different Web Security methodologies can be based upon the separation of network, application and server level security, our experience shows that only a multi-level integrated solution can adequately protect the wide variety of apps used by a modern web project.

Nowadays, a modern web project needs to satisfy not only its business logic to fulfill its purpose but the clients' demands for features and usability. This can create a precedent for a trade-off between security, performance, and usability. To address these challenges, we created the FastGuard Security Methodology to make sure we make the optimal effort possible on all levels to secure your website and hosting service from both external threads and application-level security flaws.

Find out more about the technologies we use to make sure your website and hosting services are not only fast but also well protected on all levels.


DNS and DDoS Protection

Resolving your domain through the DNS service is an essential part of accessing your website and can be a target of DDoS attacks, resulting in website performance degradation or even downtime.

To mitigate such threads, we partner with the leading managed CDN and DNS service provider CloudFlare. Cloudflare provides ultra-fast CDN and secures DNS built-in service available for free on all hosting plans. You can improve your website speed and security by enabling the CloudFlare DNS and DDoS protection with a simple click via your hosting control panel without any website code modifications.

DNS & DDoS
DNS Security
  • Integrated load balancing
  • Automatic failover
  • Rate limiting and filtering
CDN and DDoS Protection

  • Browser integrity check
  • HTTP/S DDoS Protection

Artificial Intelligence Firewall

After resolving your domain, a client makes a connection to your hosting server. At this point, we want to make sure that your website is visited only by legitimate traffic and visitors, filtering any malicious IPs, malware bots and other threads.

To achieve this, all FastCloud hosting services are protected by BitNinja Firewall. Servers protected by FastGuard and BitNinJA Firewall learn from each attack and inform each other about malicious activities. This result is a global defense network that counteracts botnet attacks and exploits with a shield of protection for all websites, while also improving performance by filtering malicious traffic on networking level.

Network Firewall

  • IP Reputation filtering

Web Application Firewall (WAF)

After the initial connection to your website is established, our in-house ModSecurity Web Application Firewall validates the visitor's request against a wide-rage of known application-level exploits.

With so many plugins and extensions, Open Source applications such as WordPress, Magento, and OpenCart require constant updates and maintenance. With our Application Firewall, you can rest assured that your website is safe even if you miss the release date of the new patch.

Web App Firewall
Protection from common attacks:
  • SQL injections
  • Cross-site Scripting (XSS) attacks
  • Known Zero-Day Vulnerabilities

Secure Account Isolation

While your website is up and running safely from external threads, the FastGuard also protect your account from possible threads on your host server. Being on a shared hosting service means that you are sharing the host with other websites, which may be a potential security risk.

With FastCloud and FastGuard protection, your account is completely isolated from other clients in a CloudLinux dedicated virtual environment which can not be accessed from outside. This way, even if a website on the same server is compromised, it can never affect your account or website.

Account Isolation
Protection and isolation of accounts:
  • Reduced risk of breaches
  • Resource consumption optimizations
  • Fair share of system resources
Vulnerabilities Protection:
  • Information disclosure attacks prevention
  • Symbolic link attacks prevention
  • Reduced exposure
