DDoS Protection

Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is a severe issue that can compromise your server. It is malicious, and it disrupts a targeted server with unwanted internet traffic. It can cause severe problems on the server, such as:

  • Depleting the server resources and increasing the website load time
  • Performance issues
  • Crashing of servers completely by overwhelming server resources such as CPU, memory, or the entire network

However, with efficient DDOS protection, you can:

  • Save money by having a predictable, useful, and reliable form of DDoS protection
  • Reduce operational and Capex costs by not having to outsource its security to a third party scrubbing center
  • Improve reputation for service availability

Therefore having proper DDOS protection is vital for any gamer. Keeping this in mind, we provide one of the best DDoS protection that can keep you safe from such malicious attacks and ensure your server’s optimum performance.

What is Terraria?

Terraria is a 2D action game that was first launched in 2011 by Microsoft Windows. It is an action-adventure sandbox game based on land adventure, and it is yours to shape, defend, and enjoy. It is a land full of mysteries. You can be a collector of items, a builder, or an explorer.

The game became popular and received a lot of favorable reviews from critics as well. It also has many similarities with the iconic cult-classic Minecraft, which helped get its attention from gamers and critics. The game slowly grew and had over 12 million copies sold by June 2015 across all platforms. The current sales as per April 2020 stand roughly at 30 million.


Terraria is a game based on exploration, survival, mining, combat, building, and crafting. It has both single-player and multiplayer modes. The game starts with a generated world of 2D graphics.

The players get basic tools to begin with and progress by completing specific tasks such as mining resources from ores and exploring caves. Along the way, they can collect certain items that can boost their health and manna.

With the help of maps, they can navigate the game and find the items, and as they collect resources, they can start building armors, tables, etc. The players can also encounter different types of enemies like zombies and monsters. You can defeat them and yield useful resources. These can be defeated using weapons like bow and arrow, swords, and magic spells.

For rare items, the player can also battle bosses. You can fight with them by using certain items to summon or when you meet some specified criteria. Your in-game progression depends on defeating the bosses.

Beating them advances you into “hard mode,” which adds many new enemies and new NPCs (non-player characters) and items throughout the game. You can attract NCP’s by completing specific targets.

For example, defeating a boss will yield essential items or obtain such items as you explore different game locations, etc. The NCP’s can be used to occupy the structures you built.

Game modes

There are several modes to choose from in the game. The “Expert” and “Master” mode are quite challenging, and you can obtain it in exchange for some elusive items. The “Journey” mode is quite interesting because it allows players to adjust the weather, difficulty, and duplicate items at will.

The multiplayer game Mod has a wide range of exciting challenges such as Fargo’s mutant mode, calamity, tremor, Boss checklist, Extensible inventory, etc. You can play with or against other remote players online. The PVP (Player Vs. Player) is particularly impressive.

You can also play “Capture the Gem,” which is similar to “Capture the flag,” where teams try to steal the opposing team’s Gem and bringing it to their base. It is one of the most popular PVP mods in multiplayer Terraria.
