First of all,to show you the purpose of NetworkStress.XYZ we'll first try to introduce our story and why this website has been created.
Everything started few years ago,I had a gaming server (counter strike 1.6 back in 2014) with around 100 players joining everyday .
One day I noticed that my server is down and players started complaining about the downtime ,after contacting the support where my cloudserver server was hosted (it was digitalocean that days)
they told me that they have suspended my game server for recieving too much network consumption and causing their whole node downtime.
Now this cannot be a normal usage since I`m just using hosting a game server with a few slots , So i checked my server for viruses and malware and found nothing.
After reading the firewall logs I`ve noticed a lot of requests that looks actually normal but all of them came from the same IP causing bandwidth overload and causing my server downtime.
Now when I`ve understood that I was under an DDOS Attack, I tried to install multiple firewalls with multiple configurations to prevent the IP's from overflooding my server.
When I`ve successfully migrated that attack the hacker used a massive UDP attack to flood my vps and took it down after few seconds.
After few days I`ve purchased a new dedicated server from a new provider and configure it to migrate DDoS attacks as much as possible.
Then I realize that I actually cannot test my configurations to know what can happen if a hacker tried to bring my gaming services down.
So I`ve opened this service which the main goal of it is to help sysadmins and system vulnerability experts to test their configuration and the mitigating capacity of their firewall to know that no one can bring their service down
and no one can make them lose money from the downtime.
