First of all, we need to understand what DDoS is and why is it important for us to know if hosting providers are prepared for it or not.
What is a DDos attack?
DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) is a type of DOS (Denial of Service) attack where multiple compromised systems, which are often infected with a Trojan, are used to target a single system causing a Denial of Service.
It was only a few years ago that businesses run offline, kept only critical information like Accounting and Client Data on their systems, however, with the Internet now offering loads of options, Businesses around the world have stepped up their game and gone online to reach to wider audiences.
With the advent of the Internet Age, came better opportunities and also invited better and better threats to our data and business reputation online. DDoS attacks have been affecting systems since ages and there have been very few turnarounds to those. However, with the DDoS attacks evolving into a complex and potentially catastrophic technique for cybercriminals to compromise valuable data, it is important to know how it affects your business and what you "CAN" do about it.
A survey of IT managers found that the average cost of a DDoS attack was approximately $40,000 an instance.
Businesses operating online should recognize this threat and take necessary action, which should start with the choice of hosting provider. One option is to switch from a shared hosting solution to a dedicated server, where the website can enjoy complete control over access and security. However, hosting providers and ISPs have a crucial part to play in the same game too. With the IT Infrastructure being sterotyped to be so unstable in India, businesses face trust issues with ISPs and Hosting Providers. They make do with the already available services and adjust prepared to face the consequences or plainly, just not bothered what happens to their data online.
They fail to realize that companies like Varchasva Corporation provide an uptime of 95.99% with security at its finest! Businesses now need to re-consider the options that they have been trusting so far and try services that might be better and beneficial to overall business goals. Afterall, channels are generating more revenue through online business today than offline!
Attacks in any form are very hard to trace initially till they dont affect personal or professional systems and websites. Having the right Hosting provider ensures that traffic is segregated from time-to-time and such attacks are taken care of without posing fatal threats to your business.
Preventing DDoS attacks with the latest technology
Hosting providers without any experience or knowledge of their field can be as capable as you as a business owner to allow room for error. Some who are knowledgeable and have experience in dealing with such attacks are the only ones who are able to provide customers with the right kind of detection and protection that ensures sites and applications to remain uninterrupted and unimpeded. Hosting providers like Varchavsa can also adjust and alter their offering according to the customer, allowing only "good" traffic to pass through and monitor the "contaminants" and eliminate them from time-to-time.
