Anyone running any sort of online enterprise should be wary of DDoS attacks. Or distributed denial of service attacks. Which is basically a long way of saying that someone wants to shut down your website or service, so they send floods of traffic from various points to overwhelm you and make it hard to shut down or even track down where the attack is coming from. They bottleneck your servers so that your normal visitors are denied service. It is one of the pettiest and most frustrating things that can happen to an online presence. In this post we’d like to help you protect yourself from them.
