Security & Protection
The number of DDoS attacks is growing every year. They are becoming increasingly complex and cause serious damage to businesses. The 11 largest attacks held in 2020 forced their victims to pay about $144 million to ransom their web services and make them work again.
If you are buying a hosting service on a dedicated server or on a virtual server, it is important to check whether your provider ensures reliable protection against DDoS attacks.
Read on to discover how we protect our Hosting clients against malicious users.
Nowadays, DDoS attacks are mostly complex: malicious users use several methods at a time in order to make the server stop working. Yet all attacks can be classified into three types:
Read more about it in our article “The most dangerous DDoS attacks of our time”.
We offer basic and advanced protection against DDoS attacks.
Basic DDoS protection is available for all our hosting clients by default. It’s free of charge. You get it automatically together with your server, and you don’t need to add any further options.
This protection works on all dedicated and virtual servers and is available for all our Hosting locations.
Basic protection is effective against the attacks using the following protocols and systems:
Yet it has its limits and disadvantages:
When your website gets blocked, you receive an automatic email notification informing you of the time when the IP address is going to be available again.
In addition to data protection, blocking IP addresses allows us to keep other servers working. For example, if a certain VDS is under attack, it will be blocked whereas all other VDS units located on the same physical server won’t be affected.
Basic protection is enough if you have a small business that rarely experiences DDoS attacks, or if your online project is currently at its starting stage. Your website will be protected, allowing you to save some money.
Basic protection will ensure you are safe against many types of attacks. It is suitable for small-scale projects or as a temporary measure.
But even if you have just started your online business and never experienced a DDoS attack, you should bear in mind that in the future your project is going to grow, and the number of attacks is increasing every year.
If you want your web services to always be available to your clients and quickly beat back malicious users’ attempts at making your server stop working, we recommend that you opt for our advanced protection.
This is a paid option but it provides complex protection against all known DDoS attacks at the network, transport, and web application layers.
Our advanced protection algorithm works similarly to the basic one but it features more advantages. You can:
In the advanced version, your website will remain available to the users even in case of a massive attack with a volume exceeding 5 Gbps. The capacity of out filtration centers exceeds 1.5 Tbps. All malicious traffic will be blocked starting from the first request, and real clients will be able to continue using your web service and won’t even notice any changes in its work.
Here are some facts about our advanced protection against DDoS attacks:
Apart from server protection, we also protect websites and web applications against bots. We can prevent data scraping, brute force, and advertising fraud. We won’t let malicious users steal your website content or crack your users’ accounts.
We also have a highly effective WAF (Web Application Firewall) that can protect your web application against cracking. The firewall blocks attacks, finds app vulnerabilities, and gives recommendations on their removal.
Enable complex protection now and forget about DDoS attacks.
