More advanced anti-ddos interface and settings
This (https://support.plesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000784914-What-DDoS-protection-tools-are-available-in-Plesk) recently updated article shows that we still need paid extensions to better protect our servers against ddos attacks.
It would be great if Plesk would create a more advanced anti-ddos monitoring tool with a useful interface, alerts, and the right amount of settings to better protect our servers from ddos attacks without the need to install a third party extension with additional costs. Preferably created with "good defaults" in mind.
Effective DDoS solutions must be installed before the server, not on the server. Because once an attack is able to reach the server, it will block all network bandwith and create a high cpu load so that the server becomes unavailable for other tasks. No on-server DDoS protection can perform good enough to keep a server safe from that. Plesk already has on-server protection, such as Fail2Ban and the built-in firewall capabilities. Nevertheless, we'd love to hear what you are missing as an on-server protection.
The request asks for and "advanced anti-ddos monitoring tool with a useful interface, alerts, and the right amount of settings".
Could you please be specific about these points.
- What exactly makes an "advanced" tool for you?
- How do you imagine a "useful" interface?
- What "alerts" would you like to get?
- What are the "right amount of settings" for you?
Please let us more about this in your comments.
Such a tool should definitely be included and offered for free. By making it paid, you create an opportunity to ddos. Ddos is something that shouldn't be
