How to use Protection Plus (All Apps)

Our Protection+ servers are a lot faster due to much less traffic, since they are used by only a small fraction of our customers. They are also equipped with an extra layer of protection that scans and blocks even the most malicious DDoS and cyber attacks.

This add-on is mostly intended for users who broadcast/stream large amounts of data, or businesses who do not want to experience any server downtime.
