ExtraVM was started in 2014 to provide reliable, secure, and affordable DDoS protected hosting in many locations around the world. Years ago, cheap DDoS protected servers were nearly unheard of – or unreliable. Some people do this wrong, we do it right. We make this available to nearly anyone by providing dozens of ways to pay, with many options for smaller countries that may not have access to services such as PayPal. All of our services are hosted in professional datacenters with 24x7 on-site staff, minimizing the impact of potential network or hardware issues. The majority of our services run off of the OVH network, which has excellent peering throughout the world. We also use various other providers in the United States to offer protected services. The majority of our services are self-managed and meant for people who have experience running servers, however we do offer optional management for certain services and still provide fast technical support for basic issues and questions.
