DDoS protection as a service

What is DDoS ?

DDoS is short for Distributed Denial of Service. (DDoS) the attack is an attack in which multiple compromised computer systems attack a target, such as a server, website, or other network resource, and cause a denial of service for users of the targeted resource.

These attacks force the system to slow down or even crash and shut down, causing the denial of service to the user. They use several computers and internet systems to attack a particular system. These attacks are usually global but can range from individual criminal hackers to organized crime rings and government agencies.

How does DDoS work?

Multiple computer systems attack their target, causing traffic in the target system, making it impossible for the target to work, and is forced to shut down. The assailant begins by exploiting a vulnerability in one computer system and making it the DDoS master then he identifies another system with weakness and attacks them. A computer or networked device under the control of an intruder is known as a zombie or bot. 

The attacker creates what is called a command-and-control server to commend the network of bots, also called a botnet. These attacks have an awful impact not only on the customer but also on the hosting provider and other customers sharing the network.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. How do DDoS protection services work?

DDoS prevention works by carefully screening website traffic to prevent unauthorised requests while allowing authorised ones to flow through with minimal page loading time delays.

Q2. What is an anti-DDoS service?

A physical barrier between prospective attackers and your network is created by anti-DoS gear. ever though anti-DDoS technology can defend against some assaults, others, like DNS attacks, are completely unaffected by hardware since the harm is already done before any data ever reaches the device.

Q3. Why do we need DDoS protection?

Data, assets, and other resources would be lost if a network was under DDoS assault. When it comes to repairing, repurposing, or buying new equipment and fixing the attacked network, the financial or monetary worth is substantial. Purchase and installation costs for hardware components like routers and PCs are high.

DDOS protection help you to defend server from attackers

As time is passing and technology is emerging loopholes or security threat is turning out to be a strong point for concern. Many remain clueless as the methods for breach of securities are evolving at a high pace. It is always dependent on who holds the upper hand (Attackers or Defenders) in the scenario. Every time an expensive security method comes in the attackers can find the deficiencies and loopholes of the system.

The Emerging


As we discussed the threats a common one we can encounter is a DDoS attack. It has emerged from the DoS attack where the attacker overloads the server with an external communication request which results in the victim being unable to respond due to legitimate traffic.


DDoS can be said the updated version of the above where the server is attacked by not just one but many attackers which takes the difficulty or complications to a whole new level.


There have been many instances where DDoS attacks have toppled down whole corporations or even web hosting companies. Here, the attacker can take control and use any computer including yours to attack.

DDoS refers to Distributed Denial Of Service

It is distributed here because multiple computers are used to carry this Denial Of Service. You may think that these attacks will be targeted only on huge and important websites like banks and others, but you never know when any of your strong competitors can adopt this method to bring your business down. In some cases, hackers target small websites to practice their skills.

What is the purpose of DDoS protection?

How to identify the attack?

It is a challenging task as one can hardly separate these attacks from genuine traffic. Many technical aspects like server disruption, maintenance process, etc can be mistakenly taken as DoS attacks.

But there are some symptoms you can notice


A sudden and drastic increase in the amount of spam you get.


Inability to access websites.


Abnormal behaviors of the network like automatically opening the files, accessing websites, etc.


Constant unavailability of specific websites.

How to protect your website from this?

A harsh reality is that there is no full-proof method to avoid these attacks. But some strategies can help us with the same.

The following are some:


First and most common is acquiring and maintaining adequate anti-virus software.


As this is a problem generated by traffic, the ultimate guide to avoid this is to consider the Firewall service to restrict and have a check on the traffic entering.


Adopting and practicing good preventive measures while distributing your email, and applying email filters is also a good option.


Last but the most effective one is to retain the service of a reputed web hosting with fully proven methods of tackling DDoS attacks in place of some inexpensive web hosters with low-security measures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q1. What is the purpose of DDoS protection?

DDoS protection limits the impact of the attack by preventing malicious traffic from reaching its target while yet allowing regular traffic to pass to conduct business as usual.

Q2. How can a server be defended against a DoS or DDoS attack?

To prevent attacks, reroute traffic through firewalls or install device firewalls. Apply higher rate limits to the servers, firewalls, and other protection and support systems for the router. Network intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) should be increased or improved.

Q3. What can a DDoS attack do?

A DDoS attack wants to block all reputable users from accessing your website and servers. DDoS can also be used to disable security devices and breach the target’s security perimeter while serving as a smokescreen for other malicious operations.
