A distributed denial of service DDoS attack can happen to anyone, at any time. A distributed denial of service attack is when a hacker uses a botnet to send your web server an overwhelming number of HTTP requests in a very short period of time. Most web servers are sized with CPU and network hardware to handle the average expected traffic per day. For some websites, that could be up to a hundred thousand, or even a million visitors in one day. However, a hacker hoping to attack your website with a DDoS attack will utilize a botnet of millions of computers from around the world, to send thousands of HTTP requests per second to your web server. This is also known as HTTP error In rare cases where your site is running on a very small web server with few available resources, the server itself will actually freeze or crash.
