What about DDOS Protection in Plesk?
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
Is DDos-Protection not a part of free service from your server provider and part of modsecurity(fail2ban)?
Hetzner have it free https://www.hetzner.de/unternehmen/ddos-schutz/ (german)
So is this feature request really needed?
And if you drop packages use XDP ;-)
Seems to perform very good...
Siegfried Sbrzesny commented
ddos attacks are one of the most common attacks, so why should a Plesk user not want them to be protected against such attacks ??
Isn't fail2ban made for that? Besides other things. Also, CloudFlare provides this service but it is poorly implemented right now (only partial CNAME setup).
Roger S. commented
distributed denial of service is a real big problem for service providers.
there should be a good solution to prevent from ddos.
Any update on this one?
This could be a easy addition to the firewall extension.
There's a list of effective iptable rules here: https://javapipe.com/iptables-ddos-protection
It's fairly effective against a DDOS and it shuts a simple DOS down completely.
Some options would be nice but even the default values are effective enough.
