Good News Everybody!
MCProHosting’s Shield DDoS Protection is now available for Non-MCProHosting customers!
Introducing MCShield.com – Powered by MCProHosting
Now Minecraft server owners from ANY server host can be protected by MCShield’s DDoS protection.
MCShield.com DDos Protection boosts your server’s protection against DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks.
Most Standard DDoS protection:
- Reactive mitigation
- 10 – 30gbps mitigation depending on location
- Traffic in excess of protection limit may be nulled to reduce the impact of an attack
DDoS protection with MCShield features the following:
- Proactive and realtime mitigation
- Over 37 tbps (37,000gbps) of mitigation bandwidth
- Multiple traffic routes, reducing network latency up to 17%
Scope of MCShield Features
To explain the difference between the two types of protection, keep in mind that the average DDoS attack is approximately 12gbps. To put that into scope:
Average Standard: In order to bring down a node, an attack must send the same amount of data to the node that we receive on our website over about 24 hours, all at once.
MCShield: In order to bring down a node, an attack must send the same amount of data to the node that we receive on our website over about 3 months, all at once.
Will this prevent all server outages?
DDoS attacks are definitely a huge factor of individual server outages, however this will not prevent outages caused by misconfigured plugins, node maintenance, or invalid Server Types. Please get in touch with one of our Support Representatives who will be more than happy to assist you with these.
Will my IP Change?
You connect with a subdomain (like server.mc.gg) instead of a numeric IP. This will be reflected on your Server Dashboard when enabled. You must connect with this address in order to benefit from Shield.
Do not share your numeric IP when using Shield.
What’s the cost of MCShield?
Only $5.99 per month.
