    What is this DoS or DDoS thing?

    Hey folks,

    There is this hot topic in the InfoSec domain, where many people ask about Denial of Service attacks of DoS attacks. Here is a small write up which can give a basic idea on what a DoS is.

    Good post MDilbara,
    had a very good experienced in mitigating layer4, Layer7 level DDoS for one of our Hivelocity Bare metal dedicated server. I still remember the days, its like almost 5 days we were under dark and burned huge sum for using DDoS mitigating services that only cover just few type of attacks not fully! When there is a flood instead of spending time with Sucuri,cloudflare mitigation simply choose a professional DDoS mitigation providers such as incapsula,Akamai and radware! They are not cheap but atleast all your sites will be online without losing the performance for sure Have a look my recent experience here

    Thanks for the compliment @Beacon
    You're correct, even I have seen many people struggle in mitigating and preventing DDoS. Thanks for your writeup of your experience.
