Website DDoS attack protection through Managed DNS

Posted on September 19, 2013

Denial of Service attacks are a major concern for websites, networks, and cloud servers. A denial of service attack is when a malicious hacker (or group) floods your network. Think of it like trying to fill a coffee cup with a fire hydrant.

A Primer on Denial of Service attacks

By flooding the target, your network becomes so busy dealing with external requests that it doesn’t have time to respond to legitimate user’s requests. This produces long delays and outages affecting your speed in dealing with requests. Managed DNS providers like DNSMadeEasy give effective defense by creating a barrier against potential network threats through a multi-tiered framework of redundant server clusters and security protocols.
