VPS Hosting With DDoS Protection
If you’re new to protected VPS hosting or need more information, continue reading.
What Is A VPS Server?
VPS stands for Virtual Private Server. It is also referred to as vServer (Virtual Server) or VM (Virtual Machine). It basically just means that instead of a physical DDoS protected dedicated server you get a virtual slice of it. This makes it possible to benefit from a dedicated hosting environment with full root access and everything, without having to rent dedicated servers, which usually provide more resources than required.
While a dedicated server often offers more resources than a VPS or at least cheaper resources if you need many, there are lots of benefits of using a VPS instead of a dedicated server. For instance, there can’t be any disk failures unlike with a bare-metal server and it’s easy to backup a whole VPS to later restore it. Using a VPS also enables you to upgrade or downgrade the assigned resources at any time to dynamically adapt to growth (upgrade) or loss of traffic (downgrade).
What Is A DDoS Protected VPS?
Above you already learned what a VPS is. Most VPS servers are unprotected and therefore vulnerable to DDoS attacks. A DDoS protected VPS is a VPS with DDoS mitigation included, which simply means that it’s located inside a network or data center that’s immune to DDoS. This requires huge bandwidth capacity and special hardware firewalls that are designed to stop DDoS packets before they can do any harm.
If you host your application on a secure 1Gbps VPS, it means that it’s not vulnerable to DDoS and can’t be taken down by malicious attackers, which could be competitors or simply cyberpunks. DDoS is even used to blackmail online shops sometimes. For reference, check out some of the threats against both Daybreak Games and Blizzard Entertainment by the group known as “Lizard Squad”. If you choose a JavaPipe VPS, you don’t have to worry about these things anymore and it’s often a better alternative to remote protection and provides higher uptime than dedicated servers.
What Kind of Virtualization Do You Use?
There are several different ways to virtualize a bare-metal server to turn it into a VPS node (1Gbps port speed or better recommended as well as a redundant RAID-10 array and colocation to keep the costs low). The most common technology is OpenVZ, however, OpenVZ is just a user-land virtualization and more like a chroot jail than an actual virtual machine. OpenVZ nodes often provide less performance than KVM or Xen nodes.
Then there is also so-called full virtualization – the most common technologies are called KVM and Xen. KVM provides only full virtualization, which is often impractical for management because the host system (aka the VPS node) does not allow any access to the filesystem of the guest (the VPS) to for example configure the network automatically.
Xen offers two different types of virtualization. One is called Xen HVM, which is a full virtualization method like KVM and the other one is Xen PV, which is a para-virtualization similar to OpenVZ, but with several benefits over OpenVZ. While with OpenVZ the VPS’s are forced to use the Linux kernel of the host system, which results in several limitations, such as the inability to load own kernel modules, limitations regarding iptables and more, Xen PV makes it possible to have the guest systems use their own kernels.
JavaPipe uses KVM for virtualization of its DDoS protected Linux VPS platform (based on SolusVM) because it allows one to benefit from the advantages of both user-land virtualization such as OpenVZ and full virtualization like KVM without their drawbacks.
What Hardware Do You Use For Your DDoS Protected VPS Nodes?
It’s very important to make sure that you provider you choose uses the most up to date hardware for virtualization. JavaPipe uses the latest Intel Xeon processors for super-fast calculations together high-frequency DDR3 RAM and low-latency local SSD (Solid State Drive) storage. IPv4 addresses are provided by default, while IPv6 addresses are available upon request. All nodes use at least 1Gbps network cards and are hosted inside networks of 100Gbps (100Gbit/s) network capacity or larger.
This high-end hardware assures the best possible performance of each virtual private server. In particular, the high clock speed of the CPUs and the DDR3 RAM makes our virtual hosting products a perfect choice to run game servers such as Minecraft or any other application that requires great performance.
DDoS Mitigation at JavaPipe
JavaPipe uses three different layers to mitigate DDoS attacks targeting an SSD VPS. Each layer mitigates different types of DDoS traffic:
- 1st Layer of DDoS Defense: ACLs at carrier level to immediately mitigate volumetric DDoS floods, such as DNS, NTP or SSDP amplification
- 2nd Layer of DDoS Defense: Powerful patented RioRey DDoS mitigation hardware to mitigate mostly TCP-based DDoS attacks with many packets per second (Layer4 and also Layer7)
- 3rd Layer of DDoS Defense: Granular 1Gbps Stateful in-house DDoS firewall that detects and stops remaining TCP- and UDP-based attack traffic within less than 1 second
This multi-layer DDoS mitigation assures that both minuscule and very complex attacks are being stopped within less than just a second to keep your VPS online at all times. This is also perfect for protection of VoIP applications which require very sophisticated mitigation methods to avoid audio/video stuttering when attacked.
No matter if you host a game server, TeamSpeak, Camfrog or web application on one of our DDoS secured VPS products, our multi-layer filtering will keep it online during 10Gbps or larger attacks.
What Is “Burstable DDoS Protection”?
When you select a VPS with included DDoS mitigation, you will notice two different types of protection levels. One is called “Burstable DDoS Protection” and the other one “Dedicated DDoS Protection”.
The burstable protection level is similar to an insurance. If you worry that your VPS might get attacked, but are not certain if, when or how hard it could get hit, this is the protection type for you. The burstable protection level is limited to 30 minutes of DDoS attack duration per month. Considering that most attacks only last 2 to 10 minutes, this covers a couple of them per month.
This burstable DDoS mitigation level enables us to provide great deals to people who are not constantly targeted but still want peace of mind because DDoS attacks really are common and easy to execute nowadays.
For everyone who knows he will receive attacks very frequently, for example, operators of Minecraft game servers, there are the “Dedicated DDoS Protection” levels.
What Is “Dedicated DDoS Protection”?
While the burstable DDoS mitigation only covers 30 minutes of total attack duration per month, the dedicated mitigation covers unlimited attack durations. This makes it perfect for online services that get hit by DDoS very frequently, such as game or VoIP servers.
The dedicated protection levels are generally more expensive than burstable protection. That’s because JavaPipe dedicates the selected amount of bandwidth to the protection of the particular IP address.
If you’re unsure what to select, you can always start with the burstable DDoS mitigation levels and if you should need it, you can upgrade to a dedicated level later on.
Managed VPS by JavaPipe
Need a Linux VPS with built-in DDoS mitigation and server management? JavaPipe offers management options for its dedicated server and VPS hosting products. Apart from not having to worry about system maintenance, updates or troubleshooting, the “fully managed” option provides a highly optimized VPS hosting environment that you won’t find anywhere else – it will super-charge your website and make it load faster than ever while keeping it safe from all types of cyber-attacks.
But let’s discuss the different options first that you can select when you order your VPS.
The default option is “Unmanaged”. This means that JavaPipe won’t provide any software related support for your Linux VPS at all. You either have to be tech savvy enough to manage your own Linux hosting environment or hire an external system administrator to do it for you.
This option is only recommended for experts who know what they’re doing and don’t require any help. An outdated or badly configured Linux system can easily be compromised and abused by hackers.
If you select “Semi Managed” during the order process, JavaPipe’s expert staff will assist you with questions related to software issues or installations. If you run into a problem and are not sure how to solve it, you can open a ticket and a professional system administrator will look into it for you.
With a semi-managed anti-DDoS VPS, you still have full root access and full responsibility of maintaining your Linux system and applications. The consulting or remote hands duration is limited to at most 20 minutes per month.
This management option is recommended for experts who want to manage the server themselves but want to have the security to be able to get quick assistance if they run into any issue.
Fully Managed Anti-DDoS VPS
If you select “Fully Managed”, you will get a managed & DDoS protected hosting environment configured by JavaPipe staff. Please note that this is a standardized web hosting environment and cannot be confused with management of a completely custom environment/application.
A fully managed VPS comes with a lot of perks. You get access to a Vesta hosting control panel from where you can manage all aspects of your web hosting, such as e-mail or FTP accounts, add/delete domains and much more.
This environment is highly optimized and is not a default Vesta setup, but a custom fork of it, optimized for high performance and extra layers for layer 7 DDoS filtering and it even has a WAF (Web Application Firewall) included. Below are a few highlights:
- Vesta Control Panel
- Built-in Additional Layer 7 DDoS Protection
- PHP 5.4 with ZendOpcache, APCu and IonCube Loaders
- NGINX In Front of Apache
- WAF Against SQL Injections, Spam & Hackers
- SSL Performance & Security: HTTP/2, PFS, HSTS
- FREE Lifetime SSL Certificates!
- Google PageSpeed Module
- E-Mail DKIM & RBLs
- Easy Backup/Restore
- Automatic Updates
These are just a few highlights of what a fully managed virtual private server has to offer.
The “Fully Managed” option is recommended for everyone who operates a website that requires great performance and security. It comes without root access and the whole environment is managed by JavaPipe’s professional sysadmins. You don’t have to worry about maintaining anything but your application itself and you can completely focus on your core business. Managed VPS plans are also perfect for people who want to offer shared hosting or reseller hosting with DDoS protection.
