SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)
The SFTP allows you to transfer files over SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) using SSH version 2. After authentication, a connection is established between your local system and remote server so you can transfer your data files & directories. It also enables you to resume file transfer if any interruption occurs.
LAMP (Linux, Apache, Mysql & PHP/Python/Perl)
LAMP is an abbreviation for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. Also, this stack provides a variety of open-source web-based software to deliver high-performance web applications.
SSH (Secure Shell)
Generally, it’s a protocol that provides encryption for network services over an unprotected network.
SMTP (Simple mail transfer protocol) is an email transmission protocol. Furthermore, through SMTP Integration, we help you to integrate your current email services or new mail services with the specified e-commerce store.
Content Delivery Network is a Distributed Server network that provides the content to an end-user according to the user’s geographic location. Whenever someone visits a site, they serve information from the nearest CDN area. That basically loads the web page faster and offers high performance. We prefer Cloudflare because it acts as a DNS panel, CDN, application firewall, and can provide SSL termination.
PhpMyAdmin is a PHP-based open-source platform developed to administer MySQL over the Network. It supports a variety of operations on MySQL and MariaDB, such as database management, tables, columns, indexes, authorizations, and users, etc.
Because data is the heart of the enterprise, it’s crucial for you to protect it. Therefore, to protect your organization’s data, you need to implement a data backup and recovery plan for all the servers. Similarly, you can back up the data on your EBS volumes by simply creating a snapshot of it. Additionally, EBS Active snapshots contain all of the information needed to restore your data (from the time the snapshot was taken) to a new EBS volume.
We provide a special add-on script in your Linux Server which helps you to detect the hacking attacks on your application end. However, most of the firewalls either work on Port or on IP address and protect the Network traffic accordingly. But Our script detects all the modifications throughout the code of your application and notify the concerned person at the right time.
In DNS Mapping, we will provide you the feature to map your website with your existing domain. Besides this, DNS Mapping will help you and your customers to access your server easily and efficiently without knowing the IP of your existing server.
It is a transport layer protocol that is used to establish a secure connection between server and client. Also, when you visit an SSL integrated website the connection between your browser and the website is secure.
Server Resources like CPU, RAM, Disk Space, Load Average, etc. are very critical components for any kind of Server either its web server or database server because they are the basic components for the execution and processing.
Monitoring user activities on a remote server could be a cumbersome task. Meanwhile, we provide full activity monitoring on your server like login alerts, user activities over an SSH connection, user activities over SFTP connection, the listing of IP addresses from where logins have been attempted, the listing of failed login records, and files modified on the server through the mail.
