Ddos Attacks
Is there anyone who has any idea on how to avoid or even mitigate denial of service attacks? I had a host who claimed that they could stop them only to get hit by a serious ddos attack the same month I joined.

I would be glad to know more about this or if there are any hosts out there who can deal with this.

DDos is history now!!! We're using ThePlanet.com and WeHostWebsites.com as our datacenter. Their firewalls are very powerful and we've hardly experienced DDOS in past few years !!!

Try any of the hosting plans of http://www.accuwebhosting.com/ and relax about DDOS attac!!!

Re: Ddos Attacks
1. Blocking the Attack with Packet Filters on the Router(s)
2. Blocking the attack by configuring Firewall.
3. Null Routes

Log files can be useful both in tracking down and stopping the attack. If several ISPs cooperate, it may also be possible to find out who the hacker really is using these logs. If you are still considering pursuing legal actions against the attacker, you will certainly want to keep these for your records; logs often get automatically deleted after a period of time.

Re: Ddos Attacks
Here are some points which will explain how to prevent the DDOS Attack -

1. Block the IP addresses from where you are getting high traffic. You can check the locations of IP addresses, if they are from suspicious country which are well know for hacking then you can block the IPs.

2. You should performed the server hardening while setting up your VPS. This process will include setting up various boundaries for server so no one can easily breaks your server security.

3. You should monitor the traffic on your server in regular basis. Because DDOS used to raise the traffic on your server. It will alert that there is suspicious activity going on.

4. Make sure the devices which are connected to your server are getting authenticated before connecting to your server. Set the stronger password for them so DDOS attack will be prevented from those devices.

5. Select the required bandwidth for your server. If you will assign the required bandwidth and there is great spike on bandwidth usage then it will be DDOS attack in many situations. So keep your eye on bandwidth of your VPS.

6. Always make sure the third party applications which you've installed are getting patched when there is new update available.

7. Enable the proxy protection so it will apply the extra security which will keep safe our server from threats. It will hide your real IP address from the hacker
