I found a company called Incapsula that is able to easily front-end a website to provide services such as Web-Application-Firewalling, (WAF), Caching (CND), and DDOS attack protection (Distributed Denial-of-Service). I’ve activated it for this site, but I only did the free version since this is only a blog after all! Still, very cool technology. Implementing it was a simple 3-step process which really boils down to changing your DNS to point to their many servers.
The server on which I host my website had a DDOS attack against it taking it down. Lots of fun there! Here is an interesting attack map provided by Google.
