Your advantages when using fc-Shield:

The experts at firstcolo take care of the management and the individual initial configuration. If desired, you can also make changes to the configuration independently and without complications.

Our security solution in detail

We change the DNS record of your website to the IP address of the fc-Shield proxy servers. This means that in the future all requests to your website will first be routed via the fc-Shield servers. At the same time, from now on your web server will only accept requests that have been previously legitimised by fc-Shield. From now on, fc-Shield decides individually for each request whether it is legitimate or not.
Only if the request has been legitimised will it be forwarded to your web server. Otherwise, the request is discarded. This concept allows any website to be protected, regardless of its location. Hence, your website does not necessarily have to be located within our data centres. However, it is recommended especially if you also want to benefit from our strong backbone and the associated advantages. Start today! The integration on your website always takes place without any downtime.

With intelligent algorithms and rulesets, fc-Shield also limits the number of accesses to your website. With such rate limits, an overload of the web server due to a large number of requests can be avoided. The cyber security experts at firstcolo have gained experience in DDoS protection over many years. The mitigation of "high-bandwidth" attacks and the analysis of complex attack patterns is no problem for us. In addition to fc-Shield, we offer many other DDoS protection packages that can always be individually tailored to your needs.
