Hello,

We do use CSF free firewall for cpanel server but does someone knows any other free firewall than CSF?

There are indeed alternative free firewalls available for cPanel servers apart from CSF (ConfigServer Security & Firewall). One popular option is APF (Advanced Policy Firewall), which is another free and open-source firewall application specifically designed for Linux servers, including those using cPanel. APF provides a robust set of features and can be easily configured through its intuitive interface.

Another option is UFW (Uncomplicated Firewall), which is known for its simplicity and ease of use. UFW is a front-end for iptables and is particularly user-friendly, making it suitable for beginners. It allows users to manage firewall rules using straightforward commands, making it a popular choice among server administrators.

Firewalld is another firewall management tool that comes pre-installed on many Linux distributions, including CentOS and Fedora. It provides a dynamic and customizable firewall solution. Firewalld uses zones and services to define the level of trust given to network connections, making it a versatile choice for securing cPanel servers.

Additionally, IPTables is a robust and versatile firewall utility that is included in most Linux distributions. While it requires a good understanding of networking concepts and the iptables syntax, it offers a high level of customization and control over the firewall rules.

When choosing a firewall for your cPanel server, it's essential to consider your specific requirements, your familiarity with the firewall tool's configuration, and the level of support and documentation available. Each firewall solution has its strengths and complexities, so selecting one that aligns with your needs and expertise will ensure effective server security.

Hope it helps!
