This topic describes how to improve the protection capability by upgrading Anti-DDoS Origin to Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium. Given the design of Anti-DDoS Origin, the effect of protection may be compromised or the protection capability cannot meet your business requirements. In such cases, we recommend that you upgrade Anti-DDoS Origin to Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium.

Background information

For more information about the scenarios for which Anti-DDoS Origin is suitable, see Scenarios.

If one of the following issues occurs when you use Anti-DDoS Origin, we recommend that you upgrade Anti-DDoS Origin to Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium:
  • DDoS attacks are volumetric and last for a long period of time.
  • HTTP flood attacks occur. However, Anti-DDoS Origin cannot mitigate these types of attacks.
  • Other specific issues.
Note If you upgrade Anti-DDoS Origin Enterprise to Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium, Alibaba Cloud refunds you for the remaining subscription of Anti-DDoS Origin Enterprise.

If Anti-DDoS Origin Enterprise, Anti-DDoS Pro, or Anti-DDoS Premium cannot meet your requirements, we recommend that you use the combination of Anti-DDoS Origin Enterprise and Anti-DDoS Pro or Anti-DDoS Premium. For more information, see Use Anti-DDoS Origin Enterprise and Anti-DDoS Pro.
