PureVPN anti-DDoS service hides your real IP from the attackers; and filters the incoming traffic to your website or server through its anti-DDoS mitigation servers. We have specialized servers to mitigate any DDoS attack. Once you get PureVPN’s “DDoS Protected Dedicated IP” add-on, then all the incoming traffic to your website or server is received first by our servers.

PureVPN servers filter the attack traffic and only forward legitimate visitors back to your website or server. The entire process of filtering and rerouting traffic occurs without your visitors noticing. One of the major benefits of PureVPN’s DDoS protection is the fact that you do not have to change your current hosting.

This means that protection can be set up very quickly, literally within minutes. Plus, there is also the added benefit of cost saving when you use PureVPN’s DDoS protection.

    What’s the benefit of using the DDoS Protection add-on if my IP is hidden by the VPN in the first place?
