DDoS Protection

DDoS Protection

In web hosting, ensuring that your servers and websites are protected from DDoS attacks is critically important as attacks by cybercriminals continues to increase in both scope and volume. An alarming number of web hosting providers still lack adequate DDoS protection services, so it’s incumbent to ask what protection they do provide.

If you’ve purchased DDoS protection from your web hosting provider, do you know what levels of network, application or protocol layers that it protects you from? When they filter attacks, will they allow legitimate traffic to pass through unhindered? Will those services encapsulate DNS, UDP/TCP, SMTP, FTP, SSH and VoIP protections?

What questions would you ask?

I think a very effective DDoS protection comes from using OVH CDN. £8.99 a month, and comes with 1TB of bandwidth. 450Gbps of DDoS absorption.

And your server can carry on as usual.

Every Network has a limit to DDOs protection Cloud or non cloud . Ex if Bandwidth is 100Gb and DDos is of 101 GB the network will get congested and get down

This is the cool thing about OVH, they have 17Tbps on network capacity, and mitigation is performed before it hits your machine.
