SFTP [ Secure File Transfer Protocol ]
SFTP allows the transfer of files over 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.
- The SFTP protocol runs on a secure channel – no clear-text passwords or data files are transferred without encryption.
- It is therefore much more difficult for an outsider to observe and collect passwords from a system using SSH/SFTP sessions.
- The advantage of using SFTP protocol is that your data remains secure during the entire process of transmission.
- SFTP solutions use high data encryption with public key advanced authentication for file access.
- The authentication involves computer-generated keys – both ‘private’ (known to you) and ‘public’ (accessed by anyone), which work alongside each other.
LAMP stack is a popular open-source web platform commonly used to run dynamic websites and servers.

Website Modification Report
We provide a special add-on script in your Linux Server which helps you to detect the hacking attacks on your application end. 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. Our Script provides various features to developers and System Engineers which are as follows:
- Modification Detection - It detects the modification in your code throughout the application either modified by a developer or a hacker.
- Automatic Notification - You can select the time frame for your automatic notification on either its daily, hourly, or weekly basis.
- Detailed File Stamp - It also provides you all the File Stamp details like the name of the modified file, location of the modified file, timestamp of the modified file, size of the modified file, etc. It helps you to detect the issues within your application and protect your server after the attack of any malicious code.
In DNS Mapping, we will provide you with the feature to map your website with your existing domain.

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. It is a transport layer protocol that is used to establish a secure connection between server and client. When you visit an SSL integrated website the connection between your browser and the website is secure.
The transmitted data are all in encrypted form. Online transactions, secure logins, establishing a secure session, secure data transfer & secure database connection, and more are some of the reasons why SSL integration is needed. We will help you to integrate your website with SSL in two ways which are as follows:
- Installing your pre-existing SSL certificates on your server.
- Integrating SSL on your website with the Help of Cloudflare.
CSS & JS Minification and Merging
- Minification gets rid of the following-: * White space character * Newline character * Delimiters * Comments
- Merge JS and CSS If your website has a lot of files, it has to make requests for each and every file. If you can merge the multiple files into a single one, then it only has to request a single file. So the response of the website will be better. Merging helps us to combine lots of JS and CSS files into a single one of their own.
Minification is the process of eliminating unnecessary elements from the code to reduce file size.
- Reducing the size of web resources allows the files to be transferred quicker, allowing the loading of web pages easier.
- You can load your website faster if you can make the page size smaller.
- Minification gets rid of the White space character, the Newline character, Delimiters & Comments.

Redis is open-source key-value storage that can operate as both an in-memory store and as a cache. Redis server can be used to cache the database resulting in the exploitation of fewer database resources and provides a tunable persistent cache. The major advantage of Implementing the Redis are:
- Implementation of Redis-server decreases the load on the database.
- With Redis as a cache, you gain a lot of power (such as the ability to fine-tune cache contents and durability) and overall greater efficiency.
- It gives much greater flexibility regarding the objects you can cache.
Resource Monitoring Notifications
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. If there will be an issue with the server resources it will directly affect the performance and efficiency of your application.
- We will provide you with real-time notifications regarding your server resources.
- We will set up a threshold limit on each and every resource as per the standard and automate the monitoring part which helps you to detect the issue and provide you with the real-time experience to troubleshoot or overcome the main cause of the issue.
Varnish Cache Integration
Each time the browser makes requests, content is fetched from the backend server. With an increase in the number of recipients to be handled, load on the server increases, and hence the quality of service faces a downfall. Features and Benefits Of Varnish:
- Performance enhancement
- Configuration flexibility
- Content compression
- Improved user experience and customer conversion
- Instant Purge for better performance Also, Varnish can be integrated with framework-specific plugins or extensions for better performance.
