ExtraVM offers high performance KVM VPS hosting with access to the OVH Game Firewall, which is a separate network firewall with specific UDP filtering for game servers. Read a short snippet about their mitigation for game servers from their website...

Game DDoS protection is included with all of our Game dedicated servers and is the most efficient and robust on the market. Its purpose is to avoid any downtime for your services. Unlike standard solutions, it is adapted to UDP traffic (used for video, audio and video games), with ingress and egress traffic reviewed. Game-specific profiles can also be applied, to further optimize the protection. In the event of a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack, players will not notice a thing.

Here are a few of the game servers and applications that it helps mitigate attacks against.

  • Teamspeak VOIP
  • Mumble VOIP
  • ARK Survival Evolved
  • CS:GO / CSS (Source Games)
  • Rust
  • ARMA
  • Garry's Mod
  • Team Fortress
  • L4D2
  • Minecraft Query
  • Minecraft Pocket Edition
  • GTA Multi Theft Auto
  • Trackmania
  • Other (The Other filter generally allows all other UDP traffic)

Please note that we do not provide support for protecting VPN servers against DDoS attacks.

The Game Firewall is currently available in the following VPS locations.

  • Vint Hill, Virginia, USA
  • Montreal, Quebec, Canada
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Gravelines, France
