Cloudbric is a security service that provides comprehensive protection against website attacks and vulnerabilities. While Hetzner ensures that the infrastructure and hosting servers are secure, it is your responsibility to secure your own website or web applications. Cloudbric provides this service – with an easy two-click installation. 

The solution includes the following components:

Web Application Firewall (WAF):

A web application firewall (or WAF) filters, monitors and blocks web traffic to and from a web application. All web traffic to the website is routed through the WAF, which filters out malicious attacks and allows legitimate traffic through.

Cloudbric blocks all kinds of web attacks accurately and quickly with an industry-leading logic based analysis detection technology, powered by Penta Security Systems. Cloudbric’s enterprise level web application firewall protects your websites from unknown web attacks as well as known attacks with the highest precision.

DDoS Protection:

Cloudbric mitigates and blocks DDoS attacks which attempt to exhaust your website resources, thereby making your site inaccessible.

While Hetzner’s sophisticated DDoS system protects our network infrastructure, your website remains your own responsibility to secure. Cloudbric protects you from DDoS attacks at the website level.

How to order Cloudbric

There is no need for hardware, installations or coding – your Hetzner hosted website is protected with a simple one-time activation. 

If you’re not yet a Hetzner customer, here’s how to get started.

Order Cloudbric in konsoleH:

  1. Browse to konsoleH and log in at Admin level
  2. Select or search for the applicable domain name in the Hosting Service tab
  3. Select Software > Security > Cloudbric on the left-hand menu 
  4. The Cloudbric launch page will be displayed. Click Launch >> 
  5. Toggle the switch to begin the activation  
  6. Click Activate to confirm the activation  
  7. This screens shows the activation status. The domain is in pending mode and will display as active when activation is complete. 
  8. If your website’s DNS is hosted by Hetzner, then Cloudbric will successfully be protecting your site once you receive our confirmation email. The following day your website attack statistics will be viewable on your Cloudbric dashboard (see below).
  9. If your DNS is not hosted by Hetzner, our confirmation email will inform you of the DNS updates that will be needed at your current DNS host to secure your website.

Manage Cloudbric

The Cloudbric dashboard in konsoleH is updated once daily and will be available the day after your website activation is complete. The dashboard allows you to perform the following actions:

  • View attack statistics
  • Download Monthly Web Security Reports
  • Whitelist or blacklist IP addresses 
  • Bypass the filter
  • Set SSL modes
  • Block specific countries from accessing your website (useful if many attacks originate from a particular location)

The dashboard is accessed in the same menu where Cloudbric was ordered:

  1. Browse to konsoleH and log in at Admin level
  2. Select or search for the applicable domain name in the Hosting Service tab
  3. Select Software > Security > Cloudbric on the left-hand menu 
  4. Click Launch >>
