What is DDoS?

A distributed denial of service; DDoS. DDoS is a form of attack that aims to push the capacity limits of the infrastructure and servers that provide the website of a particular company or official organization.

Such attacks send more requests to the servers than they can handle, exceeding throughput and rendering systems unusable for a while.

Access problems to the infrastructure can also be seen in this process.
