How to Set Up Your Hosting Companies Backend Published: Mar 29, 2005

Upload Guardian ( is now available for DirectAdmin and cPanel servers! We have new leased license options for your convenience. How can you afford not to have protection on your server?

Now available for DirectAdmin servers!

What does it do?
Upload Guardian automatically performs a virus like scan on any FTP or PHP based file uploads to stop malicious file uploads such as bots, shell scripts, or other hacker like files. It will also scan all user accounts for malicious files on a schedule providing detailed logging and email reports.

Why do I need it?
Simple answer - peace of mind and extra protection.

Being a server administrator myself, I see websites and servers hacked a lot. The #1 reason they get hacked or a website gets modified? A insecure upload script or a compromised FTP account password. While Upload Guardian will not stop people from guessing your FTP password or magically fix a PHP hole, it will stop attackers from uploading shell scripts, bots and other nasties and notify the system administrator before any damage can be done!

You will also sleep better at night knowing you have automated protection plus you will have scheduled scans of ALL user files in every account knowing there isn’t a shell script mixed in someones pictures or a mass mail program sitting around!

    T1 will run you about $369 or digg deeper and you can find them in the lower $300's make sure it includes the loop this is for a T1 1.5MB NO one should run a "Legit" hosting Company with anything less... <br />

    i must say, this is tremendous, thanks for the grate information and lesson.
    i am from nigeria, and read computer science. i want to set up my own hosting company here in Nigeria but i don't really know anything about setting up a hosting company but i will like to set it up here.


    1. because i have design a social network which i will like to host it in my company,
    2. the hosting company here will charge me alot for my social network site because it has a space for every one to upload their video if they which.
    3. the space that i will net for this site will be big and it will cost me alot for every month.
    let me say that should be all for now

    Great page. I needed to clear up some questions with regards to billing customers and you have answered them.

    Thanks for your efforts
