Fantastic Flexibility for your unique Web Environment

We recognize that no two customer web environments are alike. That’s why we have engineered our platform to accommodate for differences customers may have with their domains, ssl certifications, and origin configurations. With the DOSarrest Virtual WebServer (VWS), customers can create a myriad of unique configurations under one VIP, for a fast, flexible and scalable security solution.

What is a Virtual Webserver(VWS) ?

A Virtual webserver is a way for customers to define, direct and apply rules on how visitor requests to A specific URL are handled.

Why use VWS's ?

It enables customers to protect multiple domains and even use multiple SSL certificates all under 1 VIP. This allows you to create completely independent configurations for multiple URL's at a fraction of the cost of multiple VIPs

How many virtual servers can I create ?

With every VIP, customers can create 25+ virtual servers.

Here's an example of how a VWS can provide flexible security options for a site that has many components. Below is a breakout of the types of features that can be applied to various functions of a domain called This domain has a main landing page, a UK host, a blog section, a host for keeping content intended for caching with a CDN, and a SaaS service accessed via an API.
