As I am sure you will be aware the past few days have been very interesting for web hosting in Europe. 123 Reg unfortunately suffered a massive DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack on there infrastructure leaving a fast number of people without website or email, even if email was not hosted on there system. As I am sure you will have also heard on the news, 123 Reg are not the only company who has had issues like this, even the UK and US government’s have been hit with smiler attacks. Unfortunately, the nature of the Internet means anyone can be hit with this style of attack, but what is important is that you have systems and infrastructure in place to cope with it.
This attack, meaning 123 Reg was down for a number of hours, has left a number of companies realising how important there website and email is and how vulnerably there current digital setup is. Unfortunately in IT you only realise how important these systems are until you don’t have them.
