DDOS Protection

Why you need protection from DDoS Attacks?

Servers can get overwhelmed by DDoS attacks and similar malicious traffic, and they may even crash.

If you are not protected, your hosting providers has to take steps to protect infrastructure and other customers from your malicious traffic. They normally end up sending your hosting and packets to /dev/null never to be seen again, and that puts your services offline. This is often known as nullrouting or blackholing.

You have just been DDoS victimized by some random force on the internet, now your provider added insult to injury with an instant and often long lasting null. This is the daily experience at hosting companies without DDoS Protection.

How do DDoS Attacks work?

DDoS attacks are a simple concept. Imagine a store with lots of shoppers. Now imagine all the shoppers arriving at that store at the very same time. Now multiply that by millions.

DDoS attackers aren’t interested shoppers visiting your site or accessing your IP address. They are launching piles of fraudulent and malicious requests with the sole intent of slowing or crashing your hosting.

Their ultimate goal: Getting a null route applied to your IP, effectively putting you offline for an extended period of time. Some providers may suspend or cancel your hosting services creating more stress, costs and uncertainty for you.

No configuration or knowledge needed

Hosting can be complex and intimidating. Technology works best when it is made simple and any barriers are eliminated.

DDoS Protection from QuexSolutions is a transparent layer of protection that just works. No configuration or intervention from our customers is necessary. DDoS Mitigation (Filtering) is activated on-demand during attacks, which means you can enjoy the faster unfiltered bandwidth when there are no attacks.
