What is DDoSX®?

DDoS attacks continuously flood your server and firewall with thousands of fake requests until the volume of requests causes the server to fail, and your site to go offline. DDoS protection puts vital measures in place to mitigate the impact on your business’ continuity.

Our DDoS protection detects and prevents even the most sophisticated of DDoS attacks, filtering out bad traffic so that your server only receives genuine traffic and your business operates as usual; even in the event of an attack.

Mitigating DDoS attacks with DDoS protection, reduces the significant fall-out of a DDoS. DDoSX is our scalable, global infrastructure offering our clients the very best DDoS protection and Content Delivery Network Services. Discover what DDoS protection from UKFast can do for your business.

How DDoS protection helped BFPP

The Business Fraud Prevention Partnership (BFPP) needed top-level security measures against cyber-threats to protect their infrastructure and data, while setting an example of best practice.

UKFast hosts the BFPP on a dedicated server behind a dedicated firewall. The bespoke package also includes DDoSX, which allows BFPP to focus on helping other businesses protect their online environment, secure in the knowledge that their own is in safe hands.

We opted to include DDoSX® within our package as we are always looking at the best possible preventative measures.

Works with your current hosting and DNS providers

Use DDoSX® regardless of who you host with and who manages your DNS. Or simplify the management of your DNS records and DDoS protection by taking advantage of safeDNS.

safeDNS is UKFast’s easy-to-use DNS platform, with features closely integrated with DDoSX; meaning it's even quicker and easier to get setup, with 24/7/365 support from our team when you need it.

As safeDNS is protected by DDoSX your DNS lookup and resolution is protected and always available, even in the event of an attack.

The safeDNS API means you can integration and automate your DNS record setup, as well as your DDoS protection. With common functions and API standards across both safeDNS and DDoSX, it's simple to integrate the two. Visit the UKFast Developer Centre to learn more about what you can automate with the safeDNS and DDoSX APIs.
