We repelled a DDoS attack and improved hosting protection

📒 Data centre news

Most recently, AlexHost experienced an unusual DDoS attack and managed to control the situation with practically no losses. An attack on the AlexHost data center in Moldova has been described as one of the most powerful in recent Moldovan history. The data center was attacked simultaneously on all subnets, which significantly reduced the ability to restore the center’s performance quickly.

Despite this, the company’s experts managed to fully restore the entire system’s operation in the shortest possible time. Many services served in the AlexHost data center temporarily suffered: users witnessed slowdown of their websites, services, difficulties in authorization, some reported a complete “fall” of their network infrastructure for a short time.
