Never Let Traffic Bring Your Servers Down

Looking to prevent a torrent of traffic from taking down your server? Or maybe you are expecting to be featured on Reddit? Look no further, we offer two excellent DDoS protection solutions to choose from!

Are you out growing your infrastructure and looking for new ways to scale? Once you've scaled as much as you can vertically, maybe it's time to consider running multiple web-nodes behind a load balancer.

DDoS Protection for Your Site

In the event of an 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 account, and can be configured, managed, and monitored directly from your server 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 e-commerce company or a government institution, if your website is Internet facing, it is a potential target. We include free, basic protection with every server — 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.

Basic DDoS protection is included with every Liquid Web server. You don’t need to do anything to add the service, and there are no settings to configure: it’s always active and will automatically mitigate volumetric attacks between 250 Mbps to 2 Gbps in size. Because attacks continue to grow in both frequency and size (the average is now 4 Gbps), we offer enhanced protection for customers who need advanced mitigation services. Our optional levels of DDoS Attack Protection incorporate technologies from industry leaders to provide comprehensive mitigation of larger, sophisticated attacks.

How Our DDoS Attack Prevention Works

Once you sign up for 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.
