What’s a DDoS Attack?
This stands for “Distributed Denial of Service.” This type of attack occurs when either a single individual or a group of people try to take a site down and make it so that no one else can access that site. Essentially, this type of attack will interrupt or suspend web hosting services for a website.
There are a few different ways to accomplish this, but one of the most common is to overload a server by making so many connections to the site that the server can’t respond to any other real connections from traffic.
How Do You Find Web Hosting That Stops It From Happening?
One initial thing you can do to find secure services I tos check to see if the web host even mentions DDoS attacks at all. Some web hosts don’t even think they should be bothered with this and consider the responsibility for dealing with this type of attack to be all on you.
But in general, it helps to look for services that give you free protection of around 100 GBPS or so. Many attacks will fit into this range so if you have this much protection you will be fine.
