What is a DDoS attack and how it can affect your business
A distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack) is an attempt to make a machine or network resource unavailable to its intended users. Once an individual has remotely activated an attack, a significant number of infected computers start bombarding the target machine with external communications requests causing server overload. This will result in target server reset or extreme consumption of resources. In both cases the server will fail to communicate properly with end users. Unfortunately, such attacks are currently widely spread and quite affordable to perpetrators.
Distributed Denial of Service Attacks can have a significant impact on your company, resulting in enormous bandwidth bills, revenue loss and customer churn. In particular, the highest-value customers have the lowest tolerance for outages. Most hosting providers will block access to data at your server until the bill for exceeded bandwidth is paid. In some cases, service can be terminated immediately if the attack on your server is judged to be a threat to entire hosting provider's network.
How the DDoS Mitigation system works
An effective DDoS defense system can safeguard business operations against DDoS-related outages. Once the order has been submitted, a secure IP address will be provided to you. All you have to do is to point the attacked domain to the protected IP address, or simply change your Name Servers to our Name Servers and let us do the rest. Once it's done traffic destined to your web resource will be directed to our DDoS mitigation network, cleared of malicious requests and returned to your server. Incloudibly DDoS protection will detect, automatically analyse and mitigate all network level attacks including but not limited to:
- HTTP Flood (80% of all attacks)
- UDP Flood
- SYN Flood
- ICMP Flood
Consider Moving to a DDoS Protected Server
You needn't move your data to our servers to get protected. However, obviously, having a server at our location while under attack, is an advantage, as we use proven, high-load tested solutions only. Hosting your data with us will also dramatically decrease latency. And the last but not the least advantage that you will benefit from if you choose to move your data to our protected servers: Free DDoS Protection up to 10 Gb/s (4 Mpps) comes with every Web Hosting and Colocation order.
Free DDoS Protection with Every Dedicated Server, Virtual Cloud Server and Colocation order
Free DDoS Protection is a lifetime service delivered with every Dedicated Server, Virtual Cloud Server and Colocation order. Free mitigation solution will protect your infrastructure hosted with Incloudibly from any web-based attack peaking up to 10 Gb/s or 4 Mpps.
Technically Free DDoS Protection is a L4 transparent firewall & traffic analyser that mitigates against all TCP, UDP and ICMP based attacks. Free DDoS Protection Solution filters HTTP flood, however, if you mostly suffer from this type of attack it is recommended to upgrade to Lite, Standard or Enterprise plans for better protection.
Free DDoS Protection does not guarantee 99.9% DDoS attack mitigation, however, based on our statistics and experience this solution mitigates against 90% of attacks known.
Setting up DDoS protection for your website or server is a matter of hours and doesn't require any specific knowledge from you. Nevertheless, should you need assistance, please contact us for free technical support.
