Do you know what a DDOS attack is? DDOS stands for “Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) “ It is one of the ways to disable a website so that the website is down and inaccessible to anyone.
This DDOS attack works by using a continuous streamlined attack on a website. These attacks are carried out by criminals using various devices so that hundreds and thousands of devices make requests to access a website simultaneously. Imagine if DDOS performed these attacks simultaneously on a website from multiple locations. It will cause server stress and will not be able to cope with the influx of access that rises sharply in a short time. These attacks include the influx of UDP (User datagram protocol), the influx of ICMP (internet control message protocol), and the influx of other fake packets.
More than 5.4 million DDoS attacks were reported in the first half of 2021. This indicates an increase of 11% compared to 2020.
This attack can make our website offline and down without us realizing it and indirectly make us lose prospects and customers. So as webmasters, we need to make initial preparations in the face of DDOS attacks.
