DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) refers to a set of attacks in which hackers intend to disable your online services by sending a large load of requests. As a result, your users’ connection with your service will be completely disrupted.
There are 3 types of DDoS attacks. 1. Volumetric attacks are the most common, and they can disable your website by sending a high volume of traffic that exceeds your bandwidth. 2. Protocol attacks damage online services by targeting the vulnerable points in network layer 3/4. 3. Application layer attacks are the most complex and aim at the application or network layer 7.
Knowing how to prevent DDoS attacks can result in better functioning of your website. Some of the solutions that you can apply to stop DDoS attacks from happening are: Monitoring the traffic and user behavior, improving the infrastructure and server bandwidth, and migrating to a cloud infrastructure. Also, ArvanCloud’s DDoS Mitigation feature will secure your website and services without the need for specific hardware or high costs.
