DDoS Protected Dedicated Server is a separate physical server connected to a secure DDoS-Guard infrastructure.
A dedicated server is physically separated from other users’ servers, providing the most secure and controlled environment for websites and applications. Such a server gives users full control over the server and the ability to flexibly configure all parameters, including features and hardware models.
DDoS Protection + CDN
Protected VDS is connected to the DDoS-Guard infrastructure, which provides protection against DDoS attacks at both the network and application layers (L3-L4 and L7 OSI). The infrastructure is based on a geographically distributed network of traffic filtering nodes that act as reverse proxy servers for VDS.
Let’s say, traffic from Vietnam is directed to the DDoS-Guard filtering node in Hong Kong. Attacking IP packets and HTTPS requests are filtered, and legitimate traffic is directed to the protected server. If the filtering node in Hong Kong is overloaded, traffic will still arrive without delay thanks to the smart traffic tunneling technology that allows to broadcast it simultaneously from all major nodes (TwinTunnel technology).
Filtering traffic in the region of origin reduces the load on backbone operators, thus speeding up the website. Additionally, these servers work like a content delivery network (CDN), caching the site’s content and reducing load time for users.
We use only our own software for traffic filtering. This allows us to keep high SLA availability and eliminates the possibility of software exploits.
