Required Access

CU*Answers Web Services requires Administrator access to your site for all Web Services team members.  This allows anyone on the Web Services team the ability to support your site as needed.

Required Updates and Third-Party Code

CU*Answers Web Services requires any third-party code, such as themes and plugins, to be regularly updated for security purposes. Usually this involves the client maintaining a license with the third party. Clients may elect to share their licensing credentials with CU*Answers Web Service to assist in maintenance updates.

Third-party code means certain third-party products or services which are not sold or licensed by CU*Answers Web Services but which are made available for you, in your sole discretion, to enable or integrate with your website (e.g. third-party themes and plugins available through the WordPress administrative portal). Web Services maintains no control over and disclaim any and all liability for third-party code, even where we may have provided limited support or advice to you in relation to such services. Such support and advice are provided in good faith, as-is and as-available, and solely for your convenience.

In addition, CU*Answers Web Services requires that your website, its code, including plugins and themes, remains compatible with the currently supported versions of software that constitute the webhosting platform. CU*Answers Web Services will maintain the hosting platform to the current reasonably supported versions for security and maintainability.


Our server runs the Plesk hosting control panel on top of Ubuntu. Ubuntu, Plesk, and WordPress core and repository plugin updates are automatically installed when they become available.

Your website on our hosting benefits from several different layers of protection, at the network level, the server level, and at the application level. Traffic is continuously monitored by Apache ModSecurity for dynamically updated (Atomic Subscription) patterns of abuse such as brute force login attempts, form POST abuse, excessive 404 request, 404 requests for commonly abused filenames, etc. These automated systems then temporarily ban offending IP addresses using Fail2Ban. Repeat offenders get blocked for longer periods of time. At the application level, the WordFence security plugin is used to monitor WordPress core files and plugins for changes from the official versions, as well as to overlap some of the ModSecurity functionality blocking abusive requests if they make it through the previous layers of defense. We also have systems, Cacti, Graylog, Watchdog, Health Monitor in place to monitor overall server and network load levels that alert us to suspicious conditions outside t he norm for manual inspection so that we can respond to and mitigate threats as necessary.

Website planned maintenance and downtime information is communicated via the http://alerts.cubase.org/ site, and the Client News email list.
