Secure Web Hosting
Free wildcard SSL encryption


Free wildcard SSL encryption

SSL-TLS certificates are an integral part of secure web browsing and data transfer. Legal regulations and promotion by Google have made it essential that every site should have one. So we partner with Let’s Encrypt to make every site we host an ‘https’ one.

Our free SSLs are ‘wildcard’ certificates. So you can secure subdomains as well as your primary domain using one certificate. To get a free ‘https’ certificate your site needs to use the validated indianhoster nameservers. They provide the same level of security as any other SSL certificate.

Email scans


Email scans

All emails and forwarders sent and received are subject to advanced antivirus and anti-spam protection.

We use 3 layers of inbound spam and virus scanning:
  • Included

    Commercial anti-spam blacklists from Spamhaus, Invaluement and Barracuda Networks are used to reject mail from known spam networks.

  • Included
    Virus Scanning

    Any known malware signatures are rejected.

  • Included

    Messages are scanned for spam-like characteristics and filtered into the ‘junk mail’ folder.

Fully configurable email filters

These filters are fully configurable via the webmail control panel. So certain senders, domains and TLDs can be whitelisted to bypass the content filter entirely. The same goes with blacklists: you can create your own from our control panel.

Whenever we reject a message for a known virus or network blacklisting, the message is returned to the sender so the sender knows what's happening. We never ‘black hole’ email.

Spammers not welcome

If you’re using the email accounts included with our shared hosting, you don’t want miscreants to harm your reputation (and ours) by sending out masses of ‘spam’ email.

So we monitor outgoing emails to ensure this doesn’t happen and operate a zero-tolerance spam policy.


Two-factor authentication

Unfortunately many security measures are rendered ineffective if your password is compromised. So we offer the option to use two-factor authentication (2FA) for Myindianhoster, Cpanel and SSH access.

2FA is a way to add an extra layer of security. Our 2FA uses TOTP apps, which provide you with a time-sensitive single-use code to enter as well your password. 2FA app providers include Google and Microsoft. The apps are run from your phone.

We also enforce another form of ‘2FA’: random security checks when payments are made. This will require you to call us and confirm additional security information provided by yourself when first signing-up.

Two-factor Authentication
Anti-DDoS Protection


1 Tbps+ DDoS protection

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are a growing hazard on the web. If your shared hosting or virtual private server (VPS) is attacked, usually you don’t have much of a choice other than to weather the storm and wait for the attack to stop.

That’s why we introduced 1 Tbps+ anti-DDoS protection. This enterprise-level protection covers you against most attacks. It only filters-out malicious traffic, so you can carry on working without noticing any interruption.


Web application firewall

One way to halt security breaches is to prevent criminals getting access to your code on the server. Our Web Application Firewall (WAF) helps protect your data and software by blocking suspicious activity.

A common way to attack a website is to use web forms to insert malicious code. Forms aren’t covered by traditional firewalls, as they need to allow information to pass from the user to the server where the website is hosted.

The indianhoster WAF inspects every HTTP request for SQL injection, trojans, cross-site scripting, path traversal and many other types of attack. It performs each inspection in less than a millisecond.

The indianhoster security team regularly update our set of rules that filter-out malicious requests. This ruleset is made from commercially-available resources and custom rules written by the indianhoster security team.

All this goes on behind the scenes at indianhoster.

Web application firewall
Brute force login protection


Brute force login protection

A common attack vector for cyber criminals is to use ‘brute force’ to guess your website’s ‘admin’ password. These are applications that cycle through common passwords and use trial and error – random letters and numbers – to try to crack your credentials.

Our platform includes StackProtect, which monitors log-in attempts to your website. It checks for potential ‘evil’ automated requests. If they’re detected, it uses Google’s latest reCAPTCHA tools and if necessary, blocks those attempts.

This also stops our platform being slowed-down. It blocks up to six million requests – every day. Logins to our WordPress hosting platform are our most popular target, but StackProtect covers all common website logins.

  • FTP security lock
    File Permissions Checker

    Scan your website files for permission-based errors to prevent unauthorised access. Our File Permissions Checker will recommend and fix errors automatically.

  • Backups

    If the worst happens, you should still have website backups to fall back on. You can create site backups quickly and easily in our control panel, or set Timeline Backups to happen automatically.

  • Password Generator
