i'am looking for a software based ddos protection,some one know something for try to mitigate a ddos or help to get the server rock a solid?And i need to know too where i change the DNS(vhost) of my DEDICATED server.
so a guy I know runs a site, it's being hit very hard with a DDoS attack. He's spending about 500 /month to keep his site online. He's using ServerTech, but for the last few days, it's been offline and they have been non-responsive for the most part. I'm guessing they just don't know what to do.
Do you guys have any recommendations for any DDoS protected hosting? He doesn't really want to pay more, if he doesn't have to.
if any of you could recomened a ddos prottected vps that allows ircd to be run im curentley in process of waiting for setup from sharktek but there slow response /setup time is making me wonder if its worth it please post your recommendations here then i can start my own reasearch from your list
Is bound to happen to my server one day or another (get attacked). So I need help deciding whether to get a DDoS protection server now or later. Or pay as I go (I'll explain this in a bit).
First of all I am considering getting this because I want to use this server to hide the real source where people are downloading from. People connect only through FTP server and download. Of course if I give the real IP away I am subject to attack at anytime from anyone.
I think if I buy a server somewhere else and have people connect to there then that server will connect to the real server if I was to get attacked the server I bought "somewhere" else would only get attacked which would or would not be protected by a that special company who protects for these kind of things.
Only downside so far is I have been able to have the method above done. A person connects from one server which connects to the real server they will be downloading from BUT I use up to 2x bandwidth. Because when someone requests a file from server A...server B sends to server A then sends back to the user requesting it. A process that well works but anyone know if instead of sending back to Server A it will go directly to the user without exposing any info on the real server?
When I meant "pay as you go" I mean have a server with a DDoS protection company but don't get any protection until it happens rather than waiting on the last minute before switching to them (like adding new users now but those users knowing the real source).
These "users" downloading do about 106GB average. So you can see how big a downside is having to use 2x of bandwidth from the method I know above. The companies I am on do not have DDoS protection that I know of so I am forced to look for external companies to use to connect to the real source.
-So far everyone knows the real source IP but that is because I trust them. Anyone else is waiting to get on it and me looking for ways to put them on.
//hopefully you enjoyed my big paragraphs.
-And what kind of "protection" would I need if only FTP is being used since there is "specialized" kind of filtering on attacks.
I have a budget of $20 monthly. I want to get a VPS, 500+ram, 15+gb, DDOS protection, managed, cpanel preferred. Which BIG webhost do you guys recommend? The webhost need to be big. Forget the small webhost, I am having a horrendous experience with a small webhost right now, and desperate for a change for better service, and quality.
I am interested in a VPS package, but that one doesn't have DDoS protection from the server side. Is it a really bad advantage? I am constantly hearing about DDoS attack that takes down the site. If it is not offered fromthe Server End, is there anything the user can do to protect/prevent from DDoS attack? Like..is DDoS protection solely from server provider only?
if your web host has some hardware ddos protection and i'm assuming it blocks the ip address/addresses of a DDOS attack, will it Unblock that ip address/addresses after a certain amount of time?
Because a person's computer may unknowingly be part of a botnet that does a ddos attack, and that innocent person won't be able to access the server if their ip address is not unblocked by the ddos hardware right?
This is the second time I have been DDoS Attacked and it is losing my customers and my reputation. I personally think it is a rival company trying to put me out of business. So to prevent further attacks I need so protection. Is there some kind of software based protection or is it only hardware?
I wanted to know if anyone in this community has had any experience with creating a home brewed ddos protection for their servers. I am not sure if this is possible, I was told that you can make some pretty strong firewalls by simply using a linux box.
Basically I wanted to know if someone can let me know if it is first possible to create your own ddos protection for your servers. If so is it better to use linux(which distro is best) or windows? And what software should be used with the os?
I have also heard there are router that provide ddos protection, but I am on a budget and could not seem to find a good piece of hardware for a good price.
After a year we are here to see if we have any changes in the market of ddos protection equipment that dedicated server companies or datacenters can use to protect their networks and clients from different kinds of attacks.
We have an older dual xeon box that we are wanting to use as the edge firewall to our network.
We are currently considering FreeBSD w/ PFSense or Linux w/ IPCop, but from what I see, I don't see that they do too much against DoS.
I saw a thread before on this topic but it didn't really give me any new information.
I would like to hear from users who use a *nix firewall, please let me know which you use, what it has helped you with since you started using it instead of a software firewall on your dedi servers, and have you been successful in filtering out or mitigating DDoS attacks?
We only are planning on pushing ~200mbit through this so we feel a dual xeon should be plenty.
i have read many posts on this forum lately regarding ddos protection at provider-side because i have to run a chat service that receives ddos attacks very often. And i have a small budget, so i wanted to try the service most of you suggested... Awknet.
I found a reseller so i could test for cheap their network (ptxl.net) with a small VPS. Well, the problem is, that they completely block udp protocol, not filter legitimate traffic! In this situation my chatroom (camfr0g, an audio video chat) server does not work! Have i to abandon the dream to have protection on udp protocol against bandwidth attack?
We are a Brazilian WebHosting company and ran through this years with many and many DDoS issues against our network, causing a lot of downtime and losses for us and our customers.
Along these years our company developed a lot of software to fight against those attacks and completely block them.
We thought about offering in the future a service to block attacks on a whole network for Web Hosting companies that are having those kind of problems.
I will expose here what these softwares will do and I would like to get feedbacks from everyone if its interesting or if its not and the reason.
Software will ...
a) Detect any IP that is port scanning the network. - This software detects if one specific IP is sending more than X packets in a given amount of time.
b) Detect any IP that is attacking the network with DDoS. - This software detects if one specific IP is sending more than X bytes in a given amount of time
If "a" happens the software will,
- Send a customized e-mail to the owner of the ASN (The owner of the source IP) telling that the IP x is scanning the network. Will send a complete log with the scan including the source and the destination IP. Will not stop to send the e-mail until the scan stop.
If "b" happens the software will,
- Send a customized e-mail to the owner of the ASN (The owner of the source IP) telling that the IP x is attacking the network. Will send a complete log with the scan including the source and the destination IP. Will not stop to send the e-mail until the attack stop.
- The software will input a Blackhole on the destination IP at the border/core router. The IP with the blackhole will not exist for people outside your local country (This will not affect customer if their users are in your local country and will block attackers outside your country).
- The software will block source IPs to that destionation IPs based on a specific software that we have developed and cannot tell how it works. This is the must of the system, works very well and to not affect customer/end users from accessing the server/network.
About a year ago, I had been shopping around for dedicated server with good support and DDOS protection and finally decided to go with DMEhosting.
I am generally happy with their service as they usually reply in short time and prices are good, however, recently the server has been DDOS'ed (small attack) and the host is now requesting for extra charges although all of their packages mentioned "DDOS Protection: Yes".
Is this normal/fair reaction of hosts in general?
If not, how do I get the free DDOS protection they included in price.
Also, are there any other dedicated service providers with good DDOS protection and reasonable prices (Dual core, 2-4 GB RAM, 10 mbps unmetered, 200-300GB drive)?
which DC have the real ddos Protection for website in US or EURO? gige,awk and staminus only can Protection IRC. and gige Protect application based attacks need $1500/month. and i think it is not a good idea. it is too much money. and i am worried it is not useful.
china have the real ddos Protection. but some website can not host in china.
1. towards blocking a very large upscale DDoS attack coming from a large botnet. Physical firewall will not help, due to the attack still entering the network, thus causing trouble for the companies other clients.
2. Or dedicated server companies in Europe that can provide protection against this.
Our customer wants some type of DDOS protection for their e-commerce website.
I'm trying to decide between 20mbps or 100mbps DDOS server protection (proxy shield) Do you think that 20mbs DDOS server protection is worthy? It costs >$1000 and it seems to handle only low attacks...?
They have a limited budget so... I will go for 100mbps (>$2000) protection only if I have to...
I need dedi server hosting with ddos protetion in Hong Kong datacenter that could also provide ddos protection/mitigation service. Preferably the network can provide good latency within my database server in my country-Singapore.
Does anyone have any suggestion for good company there?
