DDoS-as-a-service

A service providing DDoS attacks for money. Usually offered by botnet owners using a special website in a darknet. Such resources maintain an automated system of orders allowing buyers to select the type and duration of the attack, and transfer money to the perpetrator.

There is no personal contact between the cybercriminals and clients, ensuring a high degree of anonymity. Some DDoS-as-a-service providers offer discounts and loyalty programs to regular clients.
