Thread: DDOS and VPS

  1. #1

    DDOS and VPS

    I never had problems on my shared server from ddos but on my new VPS which stats are at:

    256 + 64 MB ram
    768 MB Burst Ram
    10 GB disk space
    200GB bandwith
    Cpanel/ WHM

    My host said they have optimized apache, and installed 'DDoS-Deflate' for preventing DDOS attack effectively. It will not allow the number of apache connections becoming more than 25 from the same IP.

    They have added the cornjob which will execute 'ddos.sh' every seconds.

    yet my sites are still down due to the ddos, anyone else have advice or problems with this?

    The thing about DDoS Deflate is that it is not a real time protection in its essence.

    Running the netstat is yet another thing that is a negative, because it creates a huge amount of load on the server.

    This protection is just banning identical IPs and this may, in most cases, ban a legitimate user who is not trying to DDos you.

    Hi,

    Actually I would recommend you to move to a server where they offer ddos protection at the network level. Specialized HTTP filtering is quite expensive, and not commonly offered by companies. For instance, try contacting www.gigenet.com or www.staminus.net or www.awknet.com. All three are specialized on ddos protection and might help you with it.

    One customer of mine was having similar problems on his server (it was a dedicated server), he then moved to theplanet where they say every connection is protected by cisco guard, and it seems to have stopped, I'm not sure if it was the protection or the change of ip, but he seems happy enough now.

    Best regards and good luck,

    Having mentioned that I think that eugeniopacheco's post comes right on time.

    This would be the best thing to do in such cases!

    We have to mention one very important thing which is regarding DDos Deflate. This solution so to speak is meant to handle small attacks. When we talk about attacks from a major csale the picture is totally different. DDos deflate is incapable of dealing with massive attacks and that is 100% sure.

    It performs the filtration on the web server level and limits the queries to just one IP.
    And when this number exceeds the capabilities of the server - game over

    There are many vps hosts who are under your price range who will give you better specs then what you have for a lower price, Such as jaguarpc, and they will happily help you with ddos attacks if price is what your worried about
