In-house anti-attack mechanism for higher uptime.
A DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack is an attack with multiple machines and connections trying to overload your website / server. TotallyHosted offers its own in-house DDoS filter. Using advanced hardware from Huawei, we filter data traffic within our network. This is possible only when your website or server is placed with us.
Compared to external scrubbers this methods this means more speed, the low latency is protected if you are attacked and your traffic will remain within our trusted network. Your data traffic remains safe in the Netherlands under Dutch law.
Customers wishing to use the DDoS filter, can set a separate dedicated filter per server for the hosted IP-addresses. In this way, other customers do not "suffer" from the settings / restrictions we apply for these IP-addresses. You can specify exactly which IP-addresses your server uses to filter DDoS attacks. The settings and setup of the filter is carried out by TotallyHosted. We use a standard rule set that is capable of filtering 96% of DDoS attacks. Any attacks that fall outside these filter settings can be manually configured if needed. There is no limit how many IP-addresses are included in the filter. The filtering of DDoS attacks is calculated per colocation / dedicated or virtual server.
Our filter can currently fend off attacks up to 800 Gbps. This quantity is constantly expanding. Approximately 96% of the attacks are automaticly rejected by the filter. For the remaining 4% manual settings can be made (cost: € 120.00 per hour)
