    Remote DDOS Protection

    entrailzentrailz Member, Provider

    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know any decent remote ddos protection services? I am looking to protect a specific game server, but the host themselves do not provide DDOS protection.

    I have found a few services online but not too sure if they are any good.

    If anyone has any recommendations let me know.

    Thanks

      If you do IP bans, or anything involving the IPs of users, use KVM + GRE. If you don't do IP bans, or anything involving the IPs of users, use OpenVZ + OpenVPN/Tinc.

      Be sure to test latency between server/ddos filter.

      MoH:AA

      shooter? So voxility will be bad for you. (latency matters).
      You did't said a location.

      If europe: hosteam.pl / or any voxility resseller (but not in france / or london / or netherlands)

      If USA: depends on region.

      x4b.net do some remote protection, and doing that good.

      Psychz LA, or a reseller there.

      Yeah just realised I was really vague.

      This is for a gameserver (one game server) in PA (East Coast). It is a shooter (old shooter, MoH:AA).

      The reason for this is its a server for a popular twitch.tv streamer who gets about 8k viewers, last time I ran the server for him the ddos maxed my 1gbit port.

      I have spoke to Ramnode and am highly considering using them, but still open to suggestions.

    • Try Psychz Ashburn.

      Might only be photonvps that has servers in there atm

      Hey, honestly I am not too sure. What is the standard for this kind of stuff? First time really dealing with it.

      I highly recommend https://www.protrafsolutions.com/. I've been with Protraf for a while and none of servers have been downed by attacks.

      All depends how much you're getting attacked for.

      Where are your servers located now? Remote protection will increase latency unless you are very close to the mitigation centre. We do DDOS protected servers in Lithuania, suitable for gaming. But if your users are all in USA, then it would probably increase latency to an unacceptable level. If Europe, depends on what kind of latency you need, but it might be okay.

      Alright so at this point I'm either gonna go with PhotonVPS or BuyVM - my query is:

      Is it possible to setup the GRE Tunnel on Linux (so all traffic routes through here), but configure a Windows server to use that tunnel? If so, can anyone provide me a link.

      Thanks

      You can't GRE to Windows, only the Windows 2016 previews support actual GRE's.

      There's ways around it, but knowledge isn't free :P

      Well yes? :P

      We've setup tunnels for windows many times, it's a pretty common thing, especially for gameserver customers. The amount of people still doing Habbo Hotel and crap like that is amazing.

      Awesome, I'm sold. I'll purchase now (I was the guy who spoke to you on Live chat earlier regarding this).

      Is purchasing the VPS plan we discussed earlier (OpenVZ) still ample, or do I need KVM?

      Yep, I assumed such :)

      Just ticket, explain what you're after, mention my name, and the guys will forward it. I'll get it done a little later once I get a bit of sleep into me. I've been fighting a cold and been coughing up a lung at the same time. It's quite disgusting to say the least.

      For remote DDoS protection, you have a variety of options to save costs. The first schemes usually only applies to Linux.

      a) Rent a virtual server with protection and do a GRE between the two servers. (If you cannot move the current server you need to protect). This is not effective, if attackers know your old IP or you cannot change the IP.

      b) Rent a virtual server with DDoS protection.

      c) Rent DDoS protection from a provider, and they will setup GRE or a tunnel that redirects UDP or TCP traffic.

      Europe:

      1. OVH
      2. ONLINE.NET (possibly)
      3. DDoS-Guard (expensive, but there are many resellers and ISPs using them now) 5Mbit/s clean traffic = 500RUB
      4. Serverius
      5. Incloudibly (Solarcom group / expensive)
      6. Combahton / KMS-Hosting DE
      7. ReTN (some customers have deployed their Arbor or UDP-mitigation services)
      8. Moldova Trabia (using Voxility)
      9. Smartape.ru (using Voxility)
      10. Artplant.SU (St Petersburg ISP/own protection)
      11. Oderland Sweden (Arbor)
        and much more..

      USA: (there are many)

      1. BlackLotus
      2. Staminus
      3. Voxility/Limehost (+EU)
      4. Ramnode (VPS)
      5. BuyVM
      6. Psychz DC
      7. Globalfrag (Blacklotus cust)
      8. Choopa
      9. CNServers

      Asia-Pacific:

      1. DedicatedGaming AU (Staminus + NSFOCUS locally)
      2. ServersAustralia

      etc

      Depends if he just hosts the emulator or the actual images/swfs.

      They can't DMCA the Emulator code...
