    Default DDOS protection

    Hi,

    I am new to this niche and I am just to about to launch my first gaming website.
    Do most of you webmasters protect your sites against attacks ? or do only the most successful affiliates have to do this ?

    Thanks

    Hi FreeSpins74, personally I wouldn't worry about anything like that at the moment. Groups who carry out DDoS attacks usually target well known companies / brands to make a point or even demand money from.

    Small websites with little infrastructure can be brought down quite easily but unless someone is out to get you, its not worth considering.

    One of the best options for me is Cloudflare. It doesn't matter are you under DDoS attack or not, Cloudflare will increase your website's protection level.

    Cloudflare has a good basic option, though you will never need it. not for a few years at least which is what it will take to build some decent traffic

    Good web hosts offer free protection against DDS.


    But as others have said, you probably will not be attacked.


    In the event that someone is systematically trying to harm you and the protection offered by your web host is insufficient, CloudFlare offers the best protection on the market.

    I'm using free version of Cloudflare, I'm okay with it, and Use Wordfence as firewall
    I faced no serious attack yet!

    Actually, if you get White Label Online Casino from a software provider, you do not need to worry as they include web host with DDoS protection as part of their solution. You may check Asia Live Tech (cheapest so far based on my research) or search in Google as there are many iGaming software providers out there.

    Just my humble opinion.

    The free service is fine, but I prefer the paid $20 p/m.

    I've heard a lot of good things about CloudFlare. I would certainly be sticking with them if I were you.

    If you suffer under those popular Pingback DDoS attacks, you can mild them with adding this to your htaccess files [in advance]:

    RewriteEngine on
    # IF User Agent "contains WordPress"
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_USER_AGENT} WordPress
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    Just to add on this, besides DDoS protection, CloudFlare will provide you cache functionality as well so your page will load way faster all around the world (as they have distributed CDN).

    Like I said elsewhere, I'd be very careful with Cloudflare - it can serve 5xx errors out of the blue and block search engine bots, effectively killing your site. What I'd worry more about is not a DDoS but getting hacked.

    To avoid that, I could give you a half-hour talk on what needs to be done (and infact I have spoken about this at a few affiliate events) but in short: obfuscate the use of any popular CMS (as they are the most frequent mass targets, e.g. Wordpress), change any default settings like the default admin username and user ID in the database, keep track of what plugins and themes you are using, and what plugins your theme is using as that's something you won't be able to update directly, only install the plugins you really need and keep them to a bare minimum (also helps with site speed), keep your users to a minimum and give them only the necessary level of permissions. Wordfence mentioned above is a good call (although it has a history of getting hacked itself), I could also recommend Sucuri.
