DDOS Blocked IPs
The acronym DDOS stands for "Distributed Denial-of-Service" and refers to a type of cyberattack on a given server or servers.
SmartSimple's countermeasures against a DDOS attack include an automated blocking of requests from IP addresses that impede SmartSimple's performance with saturation-level persistent requests.
Exemptions can be created on a per-IP address basis from the DDOS Blocked IPs tab on the GORT page. See What Is Gort? for additional information.
Note: Clients on shared (Software as a Service) servers do not have access to Gort. Gort on SaaS servers is managed by SmartSimple.
