    Question DDOS resillent 151 front street providers

    So I'm looking at starting a new anti-spam service in the next year.

    Initially I'm planning on interfacing with GMail as well as providing a downloadable plugging.

    I'm planning on coloing @ 151 Front Street since Google peers at torix and the majority of my data transfer will be to them.

    My concern is dealing with DOS attacks, since in the past some anti-spam companies have been subject to DOS attacks. Are there any providers at 151 front who specialize in high-risk hosting?

    Haven't heard of any that specialize in DDoS protection, you might have to deploy your own mitigation hardware there if you plan to colocate which would cost quite a bit of money.

    what do you mean, companies? There is at least a dozen of companies specializing in providing services for DDoS protection and mitigation. Just google them.

    I was obviously talking about 151 Front Street, as I try to be on topic in threads, unlike others.

    I don't know if www.prioritycolo.com specializes in fighting off DDoS attacks, but I can tell you that when I was heavily DDoSed 5 years ago, Myles et al handled it very efficiently. I have been with them for 6 years now and have nothing but accolades for them. They allow me to focus on growing my business, rather than having to worry about the server, ever.

    BTW, in case you did not make the connection, I am referring to WHT username porcupine (who has posted in this thread).

    Good luck in your search.

    You're not going to find this in Canada unless you use a CDN (your local favorite Peer1 offers this) or you buy a protection proxy originating form within the U.S.

    On second thought Peer1 does have a DDoS protection product and co-lo in 151 but it's not at all cheap.
