DDoS Protection Support

DigitalOcean’s DDoS Protection service provides always-on protection from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks for your resources. The service monitors your resources for malicious or questionable volumes of incoming traffic and either mitigates or blocks traffic to the resource until the event has concluded.


We temporarily trigger a blackhole when a DDoS attack against a resource reaches a mitigation limit. We recommend contacting support and planning strategies to keep your resources online in the future.
