No we do not offer shared hosting for SEO Hosting purposes as the environment is not suitable for this. Generally most of our customers want to host a lot of sites on their servers, and those sites are very important to them and to their clients. So instead of having shared hosting where you have thousands of sites per customer, we provide VPS or Dedicated Servers for three reasons: 1) performance, 2) security 3) full control for our customers to install and configure the server as they wish, with every kind of setup.
Are your servers managed?
No, none of our servers are managed so you must secure your server yourself. Here are the definitions of managed and unmanaged servers, we only offer unmanaged servers but there are many companies that offer management of your server for a low cost. Fully Managed – Includes monitoring, software updates, reboots, security patches and operating system upgrades. Customers are completely hands-off. Managed – Includes medium level of management, monitoring, updates, and a limited amount of support. Customers may perform specific tasks. Self Managed – Includes regular monitoring and some maintenance. Customers provide most operations and tasks on dedicated server. Unmanaged – Little to no involvement from service provider. Customers provide all maintenance, upgrades, patches, and security.

How do I resolve the Brute Force Attack in cPanel?
There is a function in cPanel called cPhulk that will prevent the account from being hacked by brute force (trying different passwords). This function will disable an account for some time if you type the wrong password too many times. This can be disabled and you don't have to worry about locking your self out. This also means a less secure server and you have to choose what is most important to you.

How do I add new IPs to my server via SSH?
Here is a guide that will assist you with adding your new IPs to your server via SSH,
Debian/Ubuntu: You'll have to edit the following file: /etc/network/interfaces, use whichever editor you like. I will use the IP: 192.168.1.10 as my main IP. I will want to add the IP: 192.168.1.11. auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.1.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 gateway 192.168.1.1 Just go ahead and skip down to a new line of the file. Next add this: (Change the address, netmask and broadcast to your own) auto eth0:0 iface eth0:0 inet static address 192.168.1.11 netmask 255.255.255.0 broadcast 192.168.1.255 Next restart networking by running /etc/init.d/networking restart. Do a ifconfig to see if you see the new ip as eth0:0. If you want to add more than one ip, just go ahead and do the same except just put iface eth0:1 instead of iface eth0:0 Fedora/CentOS: cd into /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts Make multiple copies of ifcfg-eth0 and name them as ifcfg-eth0:0, ifcfg-eth0:1 etc. Open each of them and at least change the IPADDR to your chosen IP address and the NETMASK to the subnet mask for that IP address. Example: DEVICE=eth0:0 BOOTPROTO=static IPADDR=192.168.1.11 NETMASK=255.255.255.0 ONBOOT=yes Restart the network: /sbin/service network restart
