How to crash a website

Recently I found out people discussing how to crash a website. Remember that it is completely wrong for you to crash a website.

Hackers try hard to copy your website’s user data, the data include name, email address, credit card, and physical address. And when they found out that it is hard to copy user data, they would eventually try to crash a website or insert a spamming link that would lead to low ranking and eventually Google penalization.

This article will focus on how to crash a website. You can create a dummy blog for this tutorial.

  1. Computer
  2. Internet service
  3. Ping
  4. IP address of the website

In this tutorial, I will be using Windows operating system.
Simply search for CMD, or in older versions of windows, use the RUN program and type CMD. This brings a small box where you can insert your command and execute your command.

The next step is to find the IP address of the website. IP address is the webserver that your website hosting company allocated for an individual website or blog.

PING can let you find out the website IP address.

In this tutorial, I will be using Google IP address ping
After typing in the above command and pressing Enter. You should get the following result.

How to prevent ping attack

To prevent your website from crashing is to have large bandwidth, though this is very hard to come by due to how expensive web hosting is.
Most web hosting company comes with metered bandwidth, but when you choose Bluehost, you are sure of unmetered bandwidth that can survive an onslaught of ping attack.
