DDoS Protection Levels

ArvanCloud’s feature of DDoS Protection is designed in 3 different levels, and it can effectively secure your website and DNS, without any impact on your users’ regular traffic.
DDoS Protection on DNS
DDoS Protection on Layer 3/4
DDoS Protection on Layer 7
DDoS Protection on DNS
DNS infrastructures are normally the targets of cyber threats. In fact, DNS is a vital part of online services, and any form of disruption in its functioning can end up in serious damage to a business. With its extensive infrastructure, ArvanCloud protects your DNS Nameservers against destructive traffic and largely increases the accessibility of your website.
DDoS Protection on Layer 3/4
Attacks on network layers are among the most common DDoS attempts. For example, TCP Flood on layer 3/4 can easily put your service at risk. However, with the help of Anycast and GSLB advanced structures, ArvanCloud CDN automatically repels all the attacks on these layers. By activating CDN, edge servers will apply several methods to refuse manipulated packets from the same source, and that will protect your online content from DDoS.
DDoS Protection on Layer 7
The application layer can be the target of many complex DDoS attacks. But, ArvanCloud helps you safely shield your system against these attacks on 3 different levels. All you need to do is use Cookie, JS, or Captcha challenges to identify your users. You can choose the method based on the type and scope of the attack as well as defining the TTL of the challenge. That way, your user will not need to be verified repeatedly till the end of that period.

What is a DDoS attack?

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.

What are the types of DDoS attacks?

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.

How can I prevent DDoS attacks from happening?

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.
