Over this past week I've experienced a few minutes of downtime on my website. At first thoughts a few minutes doesn't sound like a lot of time, but if your website is mission-critical – such as the main store front for a business – then you can't risk losing even one visitor.
Quite often downtime is experienced because a site is receiving a DDoS attack. You can actually prevent these attacks by using ProxyShield DDoS Protection. The cool thing about this is that you don't have to change anything on your host or website, you just redirect your DNS settings to their server, and they filter the traffic before it hits your site. They must have enormous bandwidth to be able to do this!
