Versaweb, a hosting firm based in Las Vegas, has good news for all its dedicated server clients: it will be including Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection in the plans that it is currently offering. This inclusion does no come with any additional cost to its customers. The hosting service provider has decided to make this decision just in time, as more and more DDoS attacks are being launched against network infrastructure companies and enterprises.
For more than 10 years now, Versaweb has been in the industry catering to the needs of small to medium-sized businesses in need of hosting and other related Internet services. However, in more recent times, the hosting firm has noticed an exponential increase not only in the frequency of these attacks, but also in their size. These attacks have been focused on the servers that the company are hosting through its network. In light of this, the hosting firm has decided to proceed with their decision of adding DDoS protection in all of its dedicated server hosting plans.
What a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) is?
A Distributed Denial of Service, more commonly referred to as DDoS, is a form of attack launched most often by attackers whose goal is to either render computer resources unavailable or limit and restrict user access.
Individuals who commit these acts make use of a wide array of strategies in order to launch these damaging attacks. Their targets are varied, and so are their reasons and motives for attacking their targets. One thing is for sure though: the effects that these attacks have on servers, websites, and applications can be very severe.
How DDoS protection services come into play?
Since targets of DDoS attacks can virtually be any person who runs a server, manages or owns a website, or utilizes an application, it is important to understand how severe the damages these can bring. This is why it is extremely important for necessary precautions to be taken, such as the use of DDoS protection services. Anti DDoS services are widely considered to be the best type of protection from these attacks, and Versaweb customers being provided with dedicated servers can rest assure they are protected.
What these protection services can do?
DDoS protection services come in many different forms. There are many different providers of DDoS protection services. Some provide basic protection, while others are more stable and provide greater protection. The anti DDoS service included in the dedicated servers offered by Versaweb is an example of highly secure and fully capable protection against such attacks.
With anti DDoS now being a part of the dedicated server hosting plans offered by the company, clients can rest easy knowing that their websites are backed up by a superior layer of protection. Without protection, anything that is connected to the Internet can be rendered useless, either for a short period of time or for a considerable period. This kind of downtime is something that many website owners cannot afford, as it will result in unnecessary and most often, seriously large losses.
