What is DDoS mitigation?
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection is a set of techniques designed to protect a server or network from a distributed DDOS attack using network equipment specifically designed to counter that malicious attempts which disrupt normal traffic of a targeted server
What are the targets of these DDoS attacks?
It is estimated that the websites worst affected by DDoS attacks are e-commerce sites and the sites of online service providers Like HostSailor. If you are one of those examples, you must be careful enough Like us.
The money will be demanded in exchange for stopping those attacks. A company with a business that depends on its online platform will, therefore, prefer to pay the hacker the money rather than see its site rendered unusably and, therefore, pointless.
How do the cybercriminals do it?
The more requests the network receives, the less it is capable of processing them correctly. Cybercriminals skilled in DDoS attacks use this weakness point to neutralize these different websites. I have to mention that the preferred tool for this is the botnet.
How to protect yourself from DDoS attacks?
If you have reason to believe that you are a potential target of those cyber criminals, we recommend consulting a DDoS protection specialist who is equipped with this knowledge and the accompanying tools to protect your business or contact your hosting provider, they should be able to recommend and implement a technical solution to mitigate the threat.
Anyway, always ask your provider about the DDos protection they offer.
