How To Easily Configure Firewall Management With xCloud Hosting

If your virtual private server (VPS) isn’t set up right, it can be open to cyber attacks. Even with strong security from your hosting provider, it’s important to take extra steps to keep it safe. That’s where the firewall management comes in.

With xCloud hosting you can activate UFW (Uncomplicated Firewall) to regulate incoming and outgoing traffic with just a single click. Our easy dashboard allows you to configure firewall settings with ease, putting you in full control of your server’s security. This new feature helps block any harmful traffic trying to get into or out of your server. You can disable, delete, and create new firewall management rules with xCloud.  xCloud utilizes UFW for WordPress-specific Firewall rules, enhancing security against unauthorized access and malicious attacks.

Step 1: Configure Firewall Management From Server Dashboard #

Now navigate to your All Server dashboard. From here, go to the Settings dropdown. Under this menu, you’ll see an option labeled Security. Click on that, and you’ll find Firewall Management. Here, you’ll see all your current Firewall rules. From this section, you can create new rules, delete existing ones, or disable rules as needed.

By default, we set up three rules to open specific ports:

  • Port 22 for SSH,
  • Port 80 for HTTP, and
  • Port 443 for HTTPS

For security reasons, all other ports are automatically closed.

Firewall Management

Add New Rule: To add a new rule, just click on ‘Add New Rule‘. This will open up a form where you can fill in the details: Rule Name, Port, IP Address, Protocol, and Traffic options. Fill out these fields according to your needs, then click ‘Add Rule‘ to apply the new rule.

Firewall Management

Disable & Enable Firewall Rule: By clicking this option, you’ll temporarily disable the rule. You can easily enable it again whenever you need to.

Firewall Management

Delete Firewall Rule: Choosing this option will permanently delete your firewall rule. Be sure to take the necessary precautions before proceeding with this action.

Give Permission To Configure Firewall Management #

If you want your team members to be able to set up firewall rules, just go to the team page and enable it there. To get started, log in or sign up for your xCloud account using your username and password. Once logged in, click on your account dropdown and select the ‘Team‘ page. There, you’ll see an option to tick the box for ‘server:manage-firewall‘. Don’t forget to save your settings after ticking the box.
