DDoS protected dedicated


Are there any places other than Staminus/Gige/Sharktech << snip >>/Awknet that can protect against small/basic bandwidth attacks (not application attacks, http floods, etc), 5-7Gbps+, occasional up to 10?

Budget is not an issue.


edit: irc allowed

it's for irc use. using someone's nick can result in an easy multi-gbit flood.

Running an IRC server is like waving a red flag in front of a bull .

It's the same thing, either if you have a site or a chan on irc or a nick on irc its exactly the same. The behavior matters!!! He says that when you use/steal someone's nick then you can get attack.. If you use irc without fighting you will not have attacks (i am doing it for more than 5 years and i never ever had any attack.. not even a try to log in on my server..) If your aim is to run bots to steal others' nicks and chans then yes you will have attacks..

It is like you are coming in my site and act like you are the owner of my site.. what i am going to do? ban you? attack your site? and list goes on..

moreover i hear very often about web attacks rather than irc attacks.. People coming here every day asking for ddos protection for their sites..

fbyne in Europe ecatel offers ddos protection but i am not sure if they want a client like you that is going to steal a nick and just wait for the attack.. gtcomm uses gigenet proxyshield but they are located in Canada somewhere..

LOL no one uses irc to chat only to load up their botnets and share illegal files.

Then you are quite wrong, I use IRC on a daily basis to chat with my users. And, we do not share illegal files or serve botnets.

Maybe you should gather some more intel before you answer?
