In addition to robust protection against traditional DDoS attacks, WEDOS Global Protection offers a smart firewall. Unlike competing products, you don't need to install it. It is hosted in our cloud in more than 29 datacenters around the world with a capacity of over 3000 Gbps.
Just use the Protect new Domain button and follow the settings guide. For WordPress, you can use our plugin.
Set our DNS servers (no provider change, no data transfer).
Once the DNS changes are applied for the whole internet, it's done (usually a few minutes).
We will start filtering problematic traffic.
Suspicious IP addresses will be blocked or limited (cookie, captcha).
We will create a static version of your website, redirect and 404 pages within our global CDN, to save your server performance.
We will block all malicious bots that overload your website, hacker attacks and other malicious traffic (WAF function - Web application firewall)
After the 15-day TRIAL you can choose a plan to continue with the service or set your DNS servers back 🙂
What WAF can help me with
Attempted password cracking (Brute force attacks) Even if you use a secure password, trying to crack it is hard on your site. Attackers can try hundreds or even thousands of combinations, and if they do it all at once, your site can slow down noticeably or be completely inaccessible.
Finding vulnerabilities Vulnerabilities today are mainly found by robots and automated scripts. They know the most common vulnerabilities and aren't afraid to test tens of thousands of them on your site. On the one hand, they may discover a new one, but at the same time they can overload the server and slow down your site.
Attempt to exploit vulnerabilities There are a number of attacks that use various forms of vulnerabilities. In most cases, it's "guesswork". Hackers will try tens of thousands of combinations and watch your site's reaction. They don't do it by hand. They have robots and automated scripts for that. Your website will get hit and may be inaccessible.
Malicious robots Your website can provide interesting personal and marketing data that can be resold. This data is collected by robots that often disguise themselves as helpful search engine robots. We can detect them and deny them access to your website, which they overload unnecessarily,
Another layer of protection for your website Our firewall knows where the most vulnerable parts of your website are. Parts where the average visitor should not have access. If a robot or an attacker tries it, we can block his request.
Custom rules for blocking countries and custom blacklists In selected tariffs, it is possible to block access from certain countries or IP addresses. We can handle both individual IPs and ranges. Both IPv4 and IPv6.
A gentle approach to suspicious visits We only block genuine attacks that we are sure are trying to harm you. If we're not sure the request is an attack, we put a redirect page in its path to verify that it's a real browser and not a robot. In some cases we will use a captcha.
