Protect Your Sites and Servers from DDoS Attacks

Choose your level of DDoS Protection

DDoS Protection for Your Site

In the event of a DDoS attack, Cloudflare®’s vast network acts as a buffer to insulate your site, absorbing the impact and automatically dropping malicious traffic. Cloudflare is easily added to any Liquid Web hosting account to provide optimal DDoS protection. Services can then be configured, managed, and monitored directly from your dashboard. In addition to providing protection from small- and medium-scale Layer 3/4 and Layer 7 attacks, Cloudflare implements a challenge system to help ensure that your site remains available to legitimate traffic — even during an attack.

DDoS Protection for Your Server

Distributed Denial of Service Attacks can have a significant impact on your company. Whether you’re a large enterprise, a small business, an eCommerce company or a government institution, if your website is Internet-facing, your servers are a potential target for Distributed Denial of Service attacks. We include free, basic DDoS protection with every Dedicated, VPS, and Cloud server on our network — volumetric attacks from 250 Mbps to 2 Gbps in size are automatically mitigated. For comprehensive protection, we also offer two levels of service to detect and mitigate larger, more sophisticated, and sustained DDoS attacks.

How Our DDoS Attack Prevention Works

Once you sign up for Advanced or Premium DDoS Attack Prevention we begin monitoring all network traffic (not just web traffic, like other providers) to your server(s), at the border layer of our network, in real time. At this safe layer, we use analytics as well as our Threat Detection System to intelligently and proactively identify attacks before they reach any critical layer of your infrastructure. When detected, any malicious traffic is scrubbed and separated from all other traffic prior to being mitigated by countermeasures, tailored specifically to the type of attack we have identified. Our specialized hardware ensures that all legitimate traffic proceeds directly, unimpeded, to your server throughout the duration of the attack.
