If you are in the field of technology, then chances are you might have heard of ransomware, botnets, malware and many other similar things. What you might not be aware of is the leading technology behind such threats. After all, there has to be some source for these threats, right? They cannot be out there floating across the internet just like that. They surely have had a clear storage place. Majority of such threats are not legalized in many countries, and therefore companies in such countries use bulletproof hosting to facilitate such threats.
For an understanding of this hosting, individuals and businesses first need to understand what regular hosting is all about. Regular web hosting solutions are companies operating facilities or data centres containing several servers in one place. These servers act as a home for online data. The regular hosting providers offer space on these servers to be used by the business website owners.
The term “bulletproof server hosting” is used to refer to the hosting solutions that are not very strict with the type of content they allow customers to distribute and upload on their sites. Legitimate and credible hosting providers generally have restrictions on what their customers can and cannot do online. But the sites going for bulletproof server hosting do not have any regulatory measures in place. This means that government agencies and companies need to guard their data against such shadowy networks.
