Is it possible to install fail2ban (a program that scans log file and bans ips a set amount of time if they break the rules). If so what do I need to know to do this on my dedicated server. I use it on all of my local servers and would like to have that security on my inmotion server.

Yes, this can be installed. It can only be installed if you have root access. Otherwise, you would need to contact technical support by submitting a verified emailed to Indicate what you want installed, and the email will automatically create a support ticket for the issue.
