Minecraft DDoS Protection saves the day

An Anti-DDoS infrastructure built specifically for Minecraft

Minecraft opens up a beautiful pixelated world of innovation that allows everyone to explore their creativity and ingenuity. Build, destroy, craft, detonate. The choice is yours.

However, there is no fun to be had when your favourite Minecraft server becomes the target of a DDoS attacker. Minecraft DDoS attacks are about as vicious and relentless as they come.

Evolution Host have solved this problem with our advanced Minecraft DDoS protection product. Designing a solution from the ground up that was purpose built to protect Minecraft servers from DDoS attacks ensures that while an attack is ongoing, your players will be able to continue to play and innovate.

The only indication of when your Minecraft server is being faced with an attack will be the DDoS notification E-mail in your inbox. No lag, no timeouts and no packet loss.

How does the Minecraft DDoS protection work?

Once you're ready to roll, you will be sent a script that can be ran on the machine that the Minecraft server is hosted on.

The script will serve a few purposes. Firstly, it will configure your Minecraft server installation to run through our multi-point mitigation systems. Then, the script will configure your network to only allow traffic to the Minecraft server which has first been validated by our mitigation endpoints. This ensures that no malicious traffic is capable of reaching the Minecraft server.

From a technical standpoint, the protection works by instructing your player traffic to run through our network. While the traffic is flowing through our network, we are automatically validating each and every packet received to ensure it is a valid Minecraft client -> Minecraft server packet. Once validated, we will then forward the traffic on to your server - ensuring that only the valid Minecraft packets ever find their way to the server host. All of this is accomplished with minimal latency overheads - often less than 1ms.

With that basic summary in mind, this method of Minecraft DDoS protection ensures that regardless of the attack type, strength or sophistication your Minecraft Anti-DDoS solution is ready, willing and able for everything that comes at it.

FAQ

Some of the questions we're frequently asked about our Minecraft Anti-DDoS

Q: Is Minecraft server DDoS protection included with any of your VPS or game server hosting offerings?

A: Providing DDoS protection for a Minecraft server is a complex task. It requires custom filtration techniques that are designed specifically for Minecraft. Building & maintaining such a system requires a tremendous amount of work and maintenance. For that reason, our advanced Minecraft DDoS protection service is offered as a separate service.

It is not included with any of our hosting offerings, including our Minecraft server hosting as well as our Game VPS hosting.

Q: If the Minecraft Anti-DDoS service is not included with any of your hosting offers, how can I get it?

A: We bring the protection to your doorstep. We protect the Minecraft server from DDoS attacks remotely. This means you can stay with your current hosting provider and we will protect your server remotely.

Q: What do I need to be able to use the protection?

A: A dedicated server or a VPS. It is not possible to provide DDoS protection to Minecraft servers which are hosted on your home computer/network. It is also not possible to provide the protection for shared server hosting. You would need full root/administrator access to the machine to be able to configure the protection.

Q: Does this actually work?

A: Absolutely. We are experts in the field of DDoS attacks. We have a proven track record of successfully protecting game servers and applications from DDoS attacks that nobody else has been able to protect against. Building impenetrable anti-DDoS solutions is our forte.

Q: Who do you recommend I host my Minecraft server with?

A: In our experience, clients have had the best experience when hosting their Minecraft server on an OVH machine. Hosting with OVH and equipping that with our custom built Minecraft DDoS protection service will ensure the ultimate combination of power and protection.

Q: I've managed to get a packet capture of the attack I'm being hit with, could you guys have a look?

A: We'd love to. Feel free to reach out and we'll analyse the attack you're receiving.

Q: What if you can't protect my Minecraft server from DDoS attacks?

A: We have a 100% success rate in protecting Minecraft servers from all forms of DDoS/DoS attacks to date. In the extremely unlikely event that we were unable to protect your server, we would provide a full refund for your order.
