    Hi all

    yesterday was a very bad day. I received ddos attack specifically on 2 ip. Mailserver (host multiple domain) and web server (only our website)
    We have other server and ip address but the ddos attack only this 2 ip. Before the mail address ..we "disconnect" the ip and then the web server..so we disconnected also this webserver.

    The second attack was more than 10.000 connection from different ip and the router/firewall go done.
    Our hosting vps business is very limited and i don't think that we crush feet to anyone.

    now to prevent to put down entire network we take down our web server and our mailserver (only for our domain)...

    Is it too simple to buy a ddos attack to make despite to anyone? Is it too cheap to buy ddos...? how many days do you think that could continue..?

    thanks a lot for your suggestion and experience
    thanks
    Rocco

    Try Cloudflare, that's what BHW is doing.

    I wondered what the CloudFlare thing was all about!

    Cloudflare could somehow prevent the ddos attack, but if the attack point directly to your IP, it could be useless. There are many cloudflare reverse to get the real IP these days.

    Today i'm looking to these technologies and i'm understand that if attacker know the real ip address is Game over again.

    What do you suggest?
    thanks

    Why not look at some DDoS Protected Hosting or Servers?

    As to why...
    Cancelled any spammers or malicious accounts on your infrastructure recently?
    Promoted in/on any new sites or forums?
    Took a large client away from a competitor?
