On the 3rd of January 2018, GitHub, which is one of the world’s biggest software development platforms, was attacked by 1.35 terabits per seconds’ worth of traffic, at once; hence marking the world’s strongest distributed denial of service attack.
As soon as the attack started, GitHub instantly went offline, but as this happened, a digital system begun assessing the situation and what type of attack the platform was dealing with. In less than 10 minutes, the system used its DDoS mitigation service, Akamai Prolexic as an intermediary. The service then begun rerouting all traffic associated with GitHub, through scrubbing centres, which worked by identifying and blocking ill-intended packets of data. After a couple of more minutes, the offensive was stopped and GitHub was back online. Given the massive strength of the attack, the fact that it was stopped after only 10 minutes was a big surprise for both GitHub and their DDoS mitigation service.

During the last couple of years, people throughout the world have become more aware of the impact that climate change is having on the environment. For those who do not know, the actively increasing carbon footprint has massive effects, including, but not limited to: rising temperatures, changing up precipitation patterns, shifting the way plants grow, rising sea levels, shoreline erosion, interferences with crop growing, diseases, economic losses and more.
In the modern day, online businesses that serve users throughout the world via the internet, have become dependent on their digital capabilities. To put things better into perspective, issues such as natural disasters, death, security attacks, system crashes, power failures, can cause unexpected downtime of services, which in return, will affect all of its users.
Because of this, it is essential for businesses operating online, to have a contingency plan that ensures business continuity, while the company deals with whatever issue they are facing. This is especially relevant in the web hosting niche, given the fact that unexpected downtime, can affect client websites, hence their business capabilities as well. Granted, in case things go south, companies operating in this niche have to answer to clients as well. Even a few hours of downtime across all services can hurt customers, and then lead them on to moving hosting to a competitor.
In this article, we will focus on some of the most relevant aspects that have to be kept in mind, to ensure business continuity in web hosting. We will cover what business continuity plans are, the need of disaster recovery plans, the importance of ISO 27001 and ISO 22301 certifications, operating mediums, and why it is required to host a mission critical service at a certified facility, to ensure continuity of web hosting operations.
