DDoS Protection & Mitigation

DDoS Mitigation has become a required service for many online industries, including gaming, healthcare and e-commerce websites. We protect against Layer 3/4 attacks as well as the much harder to detect Layer 7 attacks.

Once the attacks reach our network, we apply Access Control List Rules (ACLs), effectively blocking traffic at the edge of our network. The second stage of mitigation involves inspecting and analyzing each packet, thus ensuring no malicious or potential service disrupting traffic makes it through to our servers.

Our Shared Hosting, Reseller Hosting, Virtual Private Servers and Dedicated Servers all include DDoS protection and mitigation to ensure the highest level of reliability possible.

Frequently asked questions

  • Do I need DDoS Protection?

    Today, anybody can get targetted by DDoS. Gaming communities and certain industries are however more prone than others.

  • So what does it cost?

    Our DDoS Mitigation services are included per default with all of our services - at no extra charge.

  • How much clean traffic gets through?

    During mitigation, up to 1 Gbit/s of clean traffic is able to be passed through, resulting in no impact to latency.

  • Do you offer remote GRE/BGP DDoS Protection?

    We do not sell external GRE/BGP DDoS protection at this time.

  • I use CloudFlare - doesn't that mean I'm safe?

    Not neccesarily! CloudFlare protects you on a DNS level - but if the attacker finds your IP, they can target it directly, bypassing CloudFlare. It will not bypass our protection.

  • Is the mitigation automatic?

    Yes - traffic passing through the edge of our network is scanned and automatically mitigated without any need for manual intervention.
