Anycast DDoS protection for non-web apps. Affordable, efficient, and reliable – Cloudflare Spectrum alternative.
Hi, I’m Viet York and I love helping people protect themselves on the internet.
In 2012, I established one of the earliest and most popular Minecraft servers worldwide, known as Waffle Minecraft. At its peak, the server hosted nearly 1,000 players simultaneously within a single world. I was 20 years old at the time, and my close friend Andrew, only 15. Our innovative Economy Roleplaying Minecraft Survival Multiplayer Server was even featured in Andrew’s high school newspaper in the early day of Minecraft. Little did we know, we had created an early prototype of today’s “metaverse.”
However, our success attracted unwanted attention. We faced multiple blackmail attempts from adversaries seeking to disrupt our community through Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks. I spent tens of thousands of dollars on protection measures, but it wasn’t until I developed my own solution that we gained effective defense.
Fast forward to the present day, and I’ve spoken with numerous game server owners, streamers, and metaverse builders. I’ve discovered that DDoS attacks remain a persistent problem, now on an even larger scale. This realization has fueled my passion for creating an affordable, efficient, and accessible solution for safeguarding multiplayer game servers, metaverse platforms, and real-time applications.
