DDoS Protection

DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks refer to the deliberate overloading of a server or a service with a high volume of often useless requests, with the goal of rendering it inaccessible to legitimate users. When a DDoS attack occurs, the server or service becomes overwhelmed and unable to handle the flood of requests, which disrupts the normal functioning of the system and causes it to crash or become unavailable.

Unfortunately, DDoS attacks are becoming more frequent and sophisticated, posing a serious threat to businesses and organizations that rely on the Internet for their operations. MadPopo, like many other hosting providers, has witnessed an increase in the number of DDoS attacks targeting its customers' servers. These attacks can cause significant downtime and lost revenue for businesses, which is why it's essential to have effective DDoS protection in place.

To safeguard its customers' servers from DDoS attacks, MadPopo has developed an in-house DDoS protection system. This protection is available free of charge for all of MadPopo's customers, and it's automatically activated for all servers and webspace packages. The system works by detecting and filtering out DDoS traffic before it reaches the customer's server, thereby ensuring that the server remains available to legitimate users even during an attack.

In conclusion, DDoS attacks are a serious threat to businesses and organizations that rely on the Internet, and MadPopo's in-house DDoS protection system is a crucial tool for mitigating the impact of these attacks. By offering this protection for free to all customers, MadPopo is helping to ensure that businesses can continue to operate online without interruption or loss of revenue.

How Do I Choose the Right WordPress Hosting Plan?

The resources allotted and available in the various MadPopo WordPress hosting plans vary. We propose our StarterBoost plan for regularly occurring sites that are just getting started, sites that do not keep a sizable database, and/or sites that do not receive a lot of traffic. You might want to take a look at our GeekPro plan for websites that are actively gaining more visitors.

What can I expect from MadPopo DDoS protection?

Our DDoS protection is equipped with a sophisticated filtering mechanism that ensures only legitimate traffic is allowed through. This means that during an attack, your server will still be able to handle normal traffic and requests from legitimate users, while blocking the malicious traffic.

In the unlikely event that an attack manages to slip through our DDoS protection, our skilled technical support team is available 24/7 to assist you and mitigate the attack. With our DDoS protection, you can have peace of mind knowing that your servers are well-protected against DDoS attacks, and your online presence remains uninterrupted.

What are the limits of MadPopo DDoS protection?

Although the MadPopo DDoS protection is designed to recognize and filter 99% of all attack patterns, it does have its limits like any other DDoS protection available on the internet. While the majority of DDoS attacks are mitigated, there are some attacks that cannot be filtered due to their unique pattern or volume. Although it is unlikely that your server will be affected by attacks that our DDoS protection cannot filter, we are continually working to improve our protection system to address these challenges in the near future. Please be aware that the MadPopo DDoS protection, like any other DDoS protection, does not guarantee full protection against every conceivable DDoS attack.
