“I like being hacked and DDoS’d” – said nobody, ever.
Studies have shown that over 40% of Internet traffic is computer bots, some of which are used to launch cyberattacks or for the exploitation of websites with insufficient security or insecure code. The new MojoHost solution makes web sites faster and more secure. MojoShield delivers cutting edge technology combined with award-winning support at a competitive price.
Most website owners will recognize WAF as a way to mitigate Denial of Service attacks (DDOS), and the technology works because it protects your origin servers. When an attack occurs, the system spreads high volumes of website requests to alternative endpoints, instead of at your origin servers. This reduces the level of requests to your website and the result is an ineffective attack that cannot threaten your web site uptime. While this is where most competing services would charge you based on the gigabytes (or terabytes) of bandwidth caused by the DDOS, the MojoShield solution does not bill based on bandwidth. Instead, MojoHost opted to bill on the number of requests. Additionally, there are no setup fees.
DDOS attacks are not only damaging to a website’s uptime, but larger Publishers using alternative web security products often have to choose between enabling their DDOS protection at significant cost to keep their web sites online or trying to sustain large-scale attacks in order to save money. Huge savings are to be had with MojoShield in part because the WAF technology is billed on the number of requests, not bandwidth. Due to this, content-rich websites are protected at superior savings compared to competitors such as CloudFlare.
There are additional benefits to adding a WAF in front of your web hosting. Less malicious or bot web requests reaching your origin servers means that fewer server resources are required to maintain a website, and that means faster load times. Custom security, access restrictions, and protection rules can be applied. Custom code can also be applied and executed before the request reaches your server or web site, opening up a wide range of possibilities. MojoHost can provide custom settings or predefined security defaults upon request, to meet all needs.
