Does Pagely provide DDoS protection?

By way of utilizing Amazon Web Service for our data center services, our network is protected through the AWS Shield Standard, equipping our network with the proper enhancements to secure us from common Denial of Service threats and mitigate active attacks.

A distributed-denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is hostile maneuver designed to impede on the normal ebbs and flows of your traffic, targeting either your server, network or service. In essence, a host of internal traffic causing massive congestion and strain on your resources can be damaging to your business.

WordPress generally finds its primary risk around DDoS attacks through targeting server resources (such as PHP consuming a large portion of memory or CPU in a small number of requests). With Amazon’s advanced network security group, their default rules filter out the vast majority of typical network-based attacks.

Beyond those measures, we can set up custom rate limiting at the NGINX layer on sensitive endpoints to provide cemented protection for the most common application level attacks. We have a dynamic blocker (which is a free option on our VPS plans) that can be configured for specific traffic patterns. For deeper stability, our Web Application Firewall integrated into our platform works in tandem to amplify your protection even further.
