In this article, you'll learn how to setup your ddos protection to work with a service. Note that the service can only protect port-specific services, such as, minecraft servers, vps's, cpanel, etc. Let's get started!

You must have a domain with a record already pointing to your existing minecraft server. Check this article for doing that!

First, make sure you're logged into https://witherpanel.com/ . Then, click on the anti-ddos button.



Once you're there, we'll start by creating an anti-ddos. We'll walk you through each step.

Step 1

Server IP address, Server Type, Location

Make sure that you change your server PORT using the ports section of the panel so that the attackers cannot go around the protection!!

In the server IP address, type in the server ip and the updated port along with it EX. 45.134.8.12:19134 . Next, choose the server type, java edition, or bedrock edition. Choose according to the software you want your server to be protected on, in our case, we'll choose java. And then, choose the location for which you want the protection to be on. We have NYC, EU, and MIA available, and then click on next.



Step 2

Domain Name and CNAME Record

Put the domain name that you want to protect, including the subdomain, if any. In our case, it will be play.domain.com. Now, on the right-side of that, we will see "Create a CNAME record at your registrar and point it to the address below." This means that we must go to our DNS management on our domain provider, and add a new CNAME record.
The CNAME record has to be something other than your already existing record pointing to your minecraft server, the CNAME record will redirect to your existing record.
In this case, play subdomain is our existing record, and java will be our new record



Once you're done adding the CNAME record, click the "Verify" button. This will check to see if in fact you have added the CNAME record correctly. Note that it may take a few minutes for the cname record to actually work, so you can wait a few minutes and then click the verify button

If it doesn't work or says "Unable to verify domain.", give it a few minutes to update and then try again



Step 3

Verifying and testing

Once it verifies, it just confirms finally if it should add it, then click "Create"



Your service should be all set up! Now we will ping the domain and see a response from TCPShield, our anti-ddos provider. Approximately every 30 seconds, the IP address changes, so if anyone tries to DDoS, they can only DDoS TCPShield's IP addresses and only for 30 seconds, and TCPShield bears the load and prevents it from getting to your server



Geyser Setup

In case you have geysermc and want to protect both java and bedrock sides - For geyser setup, you must follow the records as per this picture. More information on the geyser setup can be found at this link
