Managing ModSecurity

ModSecurity is a web application firewall that provides real time protection for websites. This guide will explain how to enable or disable it. We will also explain how to configure it on all domains or individual domains.

Using the cPanel search tool, type ‘Security’ and select the link that appears below. If you are struggling to find the control panel use our How to Access the Control Panel guide.
