Server security options

The term DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack refers to the overloading of a server or a service, which is the goal of the attack, by sending a high amount of - often useless - requests, so that the server or the service is not able to fulfill its regular tasks anymore. The server or service is proverbially "blown away", it is not possible to reach it anymore via the Internet, for as long as the attack continues.

Unfortunately, DDoS attacks are gradually becoming a more common occurrence on the Internet. Servers of Contabo customers are becoming the target of such attacks more often aswell. Without effective DDoS protection, servers under attack would not be available on the Internet for a prolonged time.

In order to protect our customers from such attacks and the accompanying availability problems as well as possible, Contabo has developed in-house DDoS protection. This DDoS protection is free of charge for all of our customers, it is activated automatically for all servers and webspace packages in the Contabo data centers.
