    Exclamation Dedicated IP x DDOS Attack

    Dear all,

    I've got a new server at Softlayer and I started to have a big problem after deciding using dedicated IPs for each site looking for improve SEO of each one.

    Well,yesterday after doing that, my server started to receive DDOS atack. Currently, I have around 4400 connections hits on my Apache.

    I asked to my host support solve this issue, but since yesterday they are still trying to mitigate that.

    They said:

    "The attack is still strong, sorry, we cannot provide definite time to fix a ddos
    attack , as this will depend on the size and kind of attacks,
    or if the attackers are persistent".

    So what should I do in this situation? How to avoid it?

    Use a dedicated server from Blacklotus, no matter you have one IP or 255 IP, all protected.

    I wouldn't like to change my host company because of that. I need help to solve it.

    1.Change IP address of your websites immediately
    2.Put new IPs behind cloudflare
    3.Put your sites live again

    In this case you should move for a DDoS protection company.

    If its only small websites you can just get a protected webhosting, also you are able to get dedicated IP for each website.

    Since each site is on a separate IP, why dont you just null route the offending IP for the mean time?

    Null route is temporary way but is not a solution

    Notice why I said "In the mean time". I am sure he doesn't want the rest of his web sites on the server was a tip buddy

    200.00 month is for Advanced DDoS protection, yes. But basic DDoS protection is available to all sites with I'm Under Attack mode, including free and Pro. We only guarantee the protection at the Business or Enterprise tier of service.

    Contact Softlayer's sales department and ask them for a DDoS solution recommendation. They'll often have good recommendations.

    Did you or SoftLayer determine what type of DDOS it is? 4400 connections sounds like a TCP Syn Flood that filled up your NIC interrupts. Solveddos may be a good fit for that, but I dont' see a reference to PPS in their plans. Understanding the TYPE of DDOS you're experiencing is key to implementing a solution. Good luck.
