Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks work by flooding a targeted server or network with large sustained volumes of traffic. Distribution of the attacks usually involve many compromised computers on diverse networks around the planet. This prevents any easy end-customer mitigation, achieved by blocking certain networks, countries, etc.
To businesses, the impact of DDoS attacks is loss of sales and dissatisfied customers. To media and social groups, DDoS attacks effectively silence your voice. To governments, DDoS attacks can disrupt communication to public and employees. To gamers, DDoS attacks mean your competition won.
BuyVM offers a very affordable solution to protect your server from DDoS attacks. For just $3.00 per month (per IP) you can receive over 700,000,000 packets-per-second or 500gbit+/sec of DDoS protection. The amount of protection is not dedicated to you but is a pooled resource all protected customers share in each location.
A BuyVM customer running a popular Minecraft community was hit with an attack reaching nearly 200gbits. The attackers weren't packet shy either reaching 57.6 million packets per second. Luckily, the BuyVM customer subscribes to our DDoS Protection service.
The Minecraft community stayed online during the entire attack and did so without lag, and without any nullroutes.
