  • Here we see a hacker (or a person with malicious intent) use a program that generates thousands of requests (when you enter a site's web address and) from different locations to a website's domain name server, which either slows down the site or completely shuts it down.
  • Not Available
  • A DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) blocks people from using or accessing a service temporarily, but instead of using one computer or input device, the incoming traffic comes from many different sources, which makes it impossible to stop the attack by just blocking one.

  • Even if a site is cut off for just an hour, that can equate to thousands of dollars or more lost in possible revenue.
  • Anything that uses this blocked website is affected, and anything connected to the internet in any way (baby monitors, bluetooth monitors, memcached servers, etc.) can all be used to attack a website.
  • The best way to protect your website from a DDoS is to get a Cloud Mitigation Provider. They will do most of the work for you, and offer a huge bandwith to combat large DDoS attacks. They also can redirect traffic and 'clean' it, sending only the 'clean' traffic to your website.
  • Now your website should be safe from most DDoS attack attempts! (And you won't be losing any money).
