• Does protection against DDoS really work?

    • views 1146

    When I first started, I didn`t think about protecting my site, but now the site is growing (3,500 unique visitors a day already) and now I am worried. Good protection is very expensive, but there are free services out there. Can you enlighten me please? Is free protection ok? Does it really help to protect against DDoS? I noticed some major news websites attempt something similar. That means when to enter the site, I have to enter the code. I haven`t noticed anything like that on my friends` websites though because we are with the same internet provider. But it was really annoying to have to enter codes. So if I put DDoS-protection on the site, will some of my visitors have to enter a confirmation code to get to the site if they are deemed suspicious? This is also inconvenient and will affect the site ranking, because Google doesn`t like the things that users don`t like.

    Good afternoon! In most cases, free protection will be limited by traffic and only protects you from a small number of attacks. For example, at cloudflare, there is a free plan, but they won`t protect you from more serious attacks. Some security services are required to filter bots. When you enter a CAPTCHA code  before visiting the site, you are confirming that you are a real person. Our company began to provide professional services to protect against DDOS attacks of all levels (Layer 2,3,4,7). Our prices start from 1900 rubles per month for protecting one site. Entering any characters (CAPTCHA) at the entrance to the site is not required. Everything is very convenient for you in terms of customization. More details can be found on our website in the section, Protection from DDOS.

    Normal DDoS protection doesn`t involve entering any codes while accessing the site. Usually, it is implemented via proxy, through which all site traffic is redirected. This proxy cuts all dangerous traffic. For the end user, everything happens normally.

Ratings of hosting providers by site tasks
Hosting price

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.

For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.

CMS

CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.

Free trial

Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.

Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.

OS

OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.

Other

Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.

Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.

Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.

DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.

Technologies

Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.

ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.

Control panel

The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.

Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
