DNS Made Easy and Constellix are responding to the growing threat of DDoS attacks by heading a new initiative. The initiative seeks to educate clients on methods to keep their domains safe from the effects of DDoS attacks by:
- Implementing proactive, always-on monitoring services
- Learning the early warning signs of a DDoS attack
- Configure fail safes for when a DDoS compromises availability
DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks have grown significantly in frequency and size over the past year. Victims range from enterprises to small businesses. Small businesses have increasingly become targets since DDoS attacks have are more accessible and affordable. A DDoS attack can be purchased over the Internet for as little as five dollars.
“We are encouraging all of our clients to take a proactive approach to DDoS by implementing query monitoring and learning the early warning signs of DDoS attacks,” says President of Constellix and DNS Made Easy Steven Job.
Last year, DNS Made Easy and Constellix released Real-Time Statistics, a service that allows users to see the real-time query traffic of their domains. This tool was later used by DNS Made Easy to detect the early signs of an attack and determine how to mitigate the attack effectively.
Real-Time Statistics is currently available for both Constellix and DNS Made Easy users for free. Once a client has added their domains to either DNSME or Constellix’s name servers, they will instantly be able to see their incoming traffic.
