Cloud VPS Hosting (EU)
Company's Market Positioning
Developer friendly VPS environment supercharged with Linux Containers: high limits, super-fast SSD disks, awesome proprietary control panel
Combining the convenience and price of shared hosting with the capabilities of virtual dedicated servers.
Tens of thousands of clients in Europe and the USA.
- Protect all customer servers without exception from automated threats
- Additional charges for the protection of premium plan clients with significant traffic volume
Business Decisions Made
Full protection against automated threats is provided to all users. The free plan is limited to 1 domain and 100,000 allowed hits per month. By default, protection is enabled, but it is optional and the user can disable it.
CHARGE FOR EXTRA HITS
All hits and domains in excess of the monthly limit are charged, and the partner independently determines all prices for end users.
The BotGuard partner provides users with the ability to configure and manager their website traffic on their own. This is for web developer friendly hosting. Its main audience is skilled enough to set up any required custom protection rules, not limited to the automatic configuration provided by BotGuard.
Technical Solution Under The Hood
2 dedicated BotGuard nodes deployed in the hosting network. BotGuard web server extension modules are integrated into predefined server images.
The integration required custom development based on the BotGuard API as the partner uses a proprietary hosting panel.
Free protection with limited monthly BotGuard API requests is enabled by default in all server tariff plans.
Hosting End-User Entry Points / Use Cases
Optional Web Server Protection included with a free basic plan (limited monthly hits) and one paid major plan.
Server image builder
End-users can add pre-installed BotGuard software to the server images.
Proprietary hosting panel
Web Server protection integration based on BotGuard Partner API
Results Achieved in 6 months
More than 36% of newly created virtual servers use BotGuard protection. More than 23% of existing servers enabled BotGuard protection.
The number of recorded false positives is significantly less than 1%. All of them are custom in nature and easily fixed by fine tuning the specific website protection rules.
