What will happen to my server in case it is subject to DDOS attack?
In case an attack density exceeds PPS (packets per second), we will immediately block the server with no right to unblock it. In future the work can be resumed from a physical private server only.
If a client’s private server is under attack
It automatically terminates its work during the attack period. It resumes work immediately after the attack.
You should remember
- If UDP protocol is used for the attack (in our company, it is mostly used for operating the DNS panel), we don’t switch off the server, but block UDP traffic only.
- If powerful TCP SYN flood attacks are detected, which threaten the entire data center functions, you will have to enable any kind of DDoS protection, CloudFlare, for example. After that the server will be unblocked.
- In case resources/projects that cannot be stored on JustVPS have been attacked, they should be immediately removed from the server. Only after that the server will be unblocked.
- In some cases, we may charge additional fee for changing your IP address that has discredited itself or is known to the attacker.
- In case of attacks with the power exceeding tens of GB and more, JustVPS has the right to refuse to provide you with the services.
We strongly recommend that you take care to protect yourself against DDOS attacks in advance. The best option is to order appropriate protection from specialized companies. We suggest that you should use the services of CloudFlare service, which provides free services.

What is the servers’ uptime?
JustVPS guarantees the virtual servers’ uptime of 99%. In case the server is unavailable due to technical issues, the company will extend the lease free of charge for a period equal to “standing period*2”.
The uptime guarantee doesn’t apply to the dedicated servers, since we have no constant access to them. When the tariff is activated, we send the server password to the client, which he may later change.
The client or his system administrator monitors the server condition on his own; our responsibilities don’t include this function.
The leased servers are not administered unlike host nodes where virtual servers are located. The latter’s performance is constantly monitored by our experts by means of monitoring systems.
