  • What is a DDoS attack?

    Hello everyone,

    I am facing an issue with my website. So I contacted my hosting providers for the same, and they said that their servers are down due to DDoS attacks and hence my website isn't working properly.
    Do you know what is DDoS attack? Help me to get my doubts clear.

    The DDoS attack is a malignant attempt to disrupt traffic of a targeted server, web service, or network by overwhelming the target or its surrounding infrastructure with a flood of Internet traffic. DDoS attacks achieve effectiveness by utilizing multiple compromised computer systems as sources of attack traffic. Exploited machines can include computers and other networked resources such as IoT devices. From a high level, a DDoS attack is like a traffic jam clogging up with highway, preventing regular traffic from arriving at its desired destination.
