Basic DDoS Mitigation


Basic DDoS Mitigation is offered as an additional service for the following Selectel services:

The service is provided in partnership with DDoSGuard

For VPC clients, the service is rendered only for virtual servers with real public addresses (i.e. the service does not apply to floating IPs).

The DDoS mitigation system works as follows:

  1. An IP address or block of IP addresses are allocated to the client.
  2. A particular amount of bandwidth is provided according to the selected option.
  3. Selected announces its AS on its partner's filters.
  4. The partner receives and filters all traffic.
  5. Only legitimate traffic is forwarded to the client.
  6. Each client is given access to our DDoS portal to view statistics.

Please note that new clinets will no longer be able to order Anti DDoS services with Service Pipe as of 15.06.2018. For clients already using Anti DDoS (Service Pipe), the service shall continue to be provided with full functionality.


One secure IP address is included in the basic fee. Additional IP addresses can be ordered in the control panel.

Bandwidth is allocated to that IP address and the speed applies only to clean Internet traffic forwarded to the client.

All incoming packets are subject to filtering. Each protocol has its own cascade of filters, where subsequent filters are enabled when thresholds from previous filters are exceeded. 

Packets are checked in stages:

  • At the L3-4 OSI levels and then the HTTP/HTTPS request itself for RFC compliance, if there are headers, the header contents, etc.
  • Based on information collected for the protected domain: a behavioral model is created, which activity is compared against
  • Additional checks: IP reputation, stream status, etc.

Internet traffic to the secure IP address passes through our partner's network, where traffic is analyzed and cleaned via the DDoSGuard infrastructure with globally located filtration nodes: the Netherlands, Germany, Russia, Kazakhstan, China, and the USA. Node proximity to the traffic source reduces latency for the end-user. Illegitimate traffic is dumped on our partner's network, and only clean traffic reaches the client at the given IP address.
