Many users have written into us asking “How do I buy an IP booter”, so we’ve decided to make a guide to show you how.
Purchasing an IP stresser is very simply, and we will be using PolyStress as an example due to their low cost and high power plans. Modern IP booters offer a variety of payment options, but the most common ones that you will find on almost any booter/stresser are PayPal and Bitcoin. If you’re concerned about your privacy, we highly recommend you use bitcoin. Bitcoin is completely anonymous, where as PayPal shares your full name on any purchase. You can buy bitcoin at a variety of online sites, such as http://coinbase.com/, http://circle.com/ and http://localbitcoins.com/.
Navigate to your stresser’s payment page and pick your plan. Your boot time is how long you can flood for, boots per day are how many floods you can launch per day and length is how long your plan will last for. You’ll typically get a better deal if you spend more or purchase for a longer time, so we recommend you purchase a longer plan if you plan to use your stresser constantly for a few months.
Most booters offer two different levels of stress testing power, normal and “VIP”. VIP is typically a lot higher powered, with PolyStress‘s floods hitting over 45Gbps in our tests whereas normal floods are about 12Gbps. 45Gbps is a ridiculous amount of power for $150 a month, allowing you to decimate most servers and every residential connection. If you are just looking to down home connections, a normal powered plan will be just fine.
Once you finish the PayPal payment process or send the bitcoin to complete your purchase, your plan should be instantly activated. In the event that your plan is not activated, we recommend you contact your stressers support team and they should be happy to help!
This week the IP booters team has decided to do an in-depth review on http://exostress.in/. We will be breaking down what makes ExoStress one of todays top booters.
Power and VIP
ExoStress’s power is unmatched. Every flood we launched was over 15Gbps, making it one of the highest power booters available today. We also had the chance to test their VIP, which decimated any target with over 50Gbps power.
ExoStress is one of today’s most reliable booters. We’ve experienced no downtime in our over 6 months of usage on this booter, whereas other stressers have weekly or even daily downtimes.
ExoStress has amazing support. Our test tickets were answered in under 40 minutes and their support is very helpful and kind. Their support is miles ahead of the competition, which is a very nice thing to see as the majority of stressers have terrible or non-existent support.
ExoStress plans start at $15 for 900 second attack time, which is very cheap in comparison to other popular stressers such as BooterBox.
ExoStress has a very nice and user friendly site design along with some unique features such as Build a Packet and a VPN detector, which helps a lot when attempting to down home connections.
Power: 9/10, Nearly every host tested instantly went down.
Website: 9.5/10, A very nice and user friendly design, anyone can navigate their site!
Support: 10/10, All of our tickets were answered in under 30 minutes, giving ExoStress some of the best support available.
Pricing: 9/10, ExoStress is very cheap for the power and level of service they provide.
This week the IPBooters team reviewed http://instabooter.com/, and after thorough analysis we have updated our top 10 stresser list with instaBOOTER being at the very top, and taking it’s rightful place as #1, but what makes this stresser so different from the others?
You can tell this isn’t just some slopped together stresser theme, obvious care and precision was taken when making the source, and the results speak for themselves. This booter is completely ajax, meaning you never even have to refresh a page, everything live-updates itself for you. When asked for comment the staff team said it took roughly 2 months of production to make the site. It is by far the smoothest, most user-friendly experience we have had on any stresser, and for aesthetics this booter definitely gets a 10/10.
Every single connection we tested went down within 1 second of us launching the flood, even dedicated 10GbE networks were unable to withstand the flood, power is something this booter does not lack in. On top of all the other features, a nice hard hitting boot hub really brings everything in this stresser together very nicely.
I believe the name “instaBOOTER” is no mistake. This stresser is instantaneous, they even staff a dedicated support team in order to handle and support inquiries within minutes, which is something we have yet to see in any other booter.
What really makes this booter stick out is it’s live chat option, which connects users on site. No other stressers allow for users to communicate, if staff members are not available the community is able to help itself, which is something very unique not found anywhere else.
Power: 10/10 all tested connections went offline instantly.
Website: 10/10, by far the cleanest, most user-friendly booter we have ever seen.
Support: 10/10, instant replies, live chat, dedicated support members, help is literally seconds away.
Overall: This booter is 10/10 in every possible category, it cannot get the ipbooters recommendation enough, and if you are looking for a new stresser to purchase, you cannot go wrong with instaBOOTER!
The IP Booters team has done a full review on http://beststresser.com/ and we will be breaking down all the pros and cons of using a free stresser.
Best Stresser is currently stressing at around 2 Gbps, making it below average in comparison to a paid stresser. However, this is astounding for a free booter allowing you to down any home connection or even some servers for free!
Website Design: 9/10
Best Stresser’s site is easy to use and very simplistic, however they could improve by adding some tools such as a domain resolver or skype resolver.
Their site is completely free to use, giving it a perfect 10 in pricing.
BestStresser offers medium quality stressing for free with no restrictions other than a 15 minute maximum time per flood, making it a great option for users on a budget. However, it definitely lacks in power compared to a paid stresser.
With the ever growing size of the IP Stresser market, the IP Booters team decided to explain in-depth on how to properly use a stresser. The goal of this post is to educate newbies on what to do and a few tips and tricks.
We will go over everything you need to know before you use your first stresser. In this post we will be using DataBooter as an example, but these apply to all stressers.
A lot of users are concerned over their own privacy when using a stresser. Most people choose to use TOR or a VPN / Proxy, however this really is not necessary, the few stressers that do keep login history, most encrypt it (We have spoken with DataBooter and they claim to use AES-256 encryption on all logs). All layer 4 based floods utilize IP spoofing, on top of this 99% of floods reflect traffic, not directly send it, the end result for stresser traffic patterns is:
Boot hub -> Backend attack servers -> Modified IP header (Source address) packets sent to list of DrDoS amplifiers -> Amplifiers reflect larger sized UDP packets at victim
It is safe to say this pathway can never be traced, even by government entities, it simply isn’t possible, users really don’t have anything to worry about. However when we start getting into layer 7 based floods things get a bit more tricky, as application based attacks normally target the HTTP protocol, which can only operate over TCP, reflection and spoofing become impossible (As you cannot fake a TCP handshake). What this means is all layer-7 based attacks CAN be traced to the origin server. There are methods in place to mask the true origin, but it is theoretically possible for any government agency to trace the flood, we recommend not launching layer 7 attacks unless absolutely necessary!
The general lay out of the boot hub is the same for all stressers. We will go over each of the input fields and what is needed in each.
Host – The IP address you want to flood (For layer 7 attacks you would enter the website URL), you normally get the IP address from a Skype resolver / IP logger / packet sniffer. Makes sure you have no spaces or other characters in the input field.
Port – A generally useless field, unless you really know what you’re doing it is best to simply leave this at 80 and not worry about it, traffic is still going to be sent and overload the host, the only time the port option is viable is with complex TCP attacks.
Time – The amount of time in seconds you want the flood to be sent for. Normally anything lower then 5-10 seconds and you won’t even see a noticeable result, most people use the max boot time they purchased with their plan.
This is where most questions originate from, it is best to ask your specific booter what their hardest amplifying method is, as it varies from stresser to stresser. We were told by DataBooter that DNS is the best method to use on their stresser, and it amplifies to 10-20Gbps per attack! SSYN and TCP-ACK are both methods that rely on the TCP protocol, while DNS, NTP, SSDP, CHARGEN, and LAG are rely on UDP.
In order to access all features of a stresser, you first need to purchase a plan. This can vary in price, from $15 all the way up to $300! Although this stresser accepts PayPal, a lot of others don’t, it is best to familiarize yourself with bitcoin right now as you will probably need to use it later on. I recommend a site like http://circle.com/ or http://coinbase.com/ for purchasing bitcoins, you can also try http://localbitcoins.com/ if you are trying to purchase them with paypal. The main difference between plans is boot time, concurrents, length, and power. Concurrents is the amount of floods you can run at once, so if you wanted to boot 3 IP’s offline at once you would need an account with 3 concurrents.
As for power, regular plans on DataBooter offer a 10-20Gbps guaranteed capacity, which is more then enough to take down any home connection, and 99% of all servers.
Having a look at VIP plans may be worth it, with a 50-75Gbps capacity you can expect to take down massive networks, even smaller sized data centers don’t have the filtering capacity against such an attack, we got a free test from the staff team and can verify the power is indeed as advertised, however you should only get a VIP plan if you really need something offline, it is the ultimate over kill and will destroy networks like you’ve never seen before.
Once you purchase a premium plan you will get it instantly, and can start booting right away. DataBooter has no restriction on how many floods you can launch per day, however others may, you should take a thorough look at your stresser before you purchase it.
That is all any newbies need to know to start IP booting! It is very basic, and you can start doing it within 5 minutes. If you have any questions feel free to ask your stressers staff team any questions, as most are happy to help. The example stresser used in this tutorial was DataBooter, which the IP Booters team highly recommends as a starting stresser, being incredibly easy to use and has the quickest support replies of any previous reviewed stresser on ipbooters!
The IP Booters team is always pushing out the latest news and updates for the current best list of IP Booters on the market. Although our Top 10 List is always available, we wanted to update you guys on something more recent, we present the Top 3 IP Booters of 2016!
Each of these IP Booters has proven itself in one way or another to be one of the very best. Stress tests from all of these have maxed our 10Gbit port, meaning they individually each hit harder then 95% of other booters!
When combined together, these 3 booters launch a devastating attack that is even capable of taking down most DDoS protected connections, we have never had a moment of down time while using any of these stressers and they all seem to be professional made and managed with great care.
We hope this offers you some help in picking the right IP stresser, As of 2016 these are definitely the best booters on the market.
Today the IP Booters team has done a full review on http://polystress.com/, we will break this booter down in several categories and list the strengths and weaknesses in each.
PolyStress does not lack in power what so ever, hitting a solid 15-25Gbps in each stress test we launched, it really stands out from many other IP booters.
The website is easy to navigate and user-friendly, it has also been made from the ground up by a very experienced developer, you know as soon as you log in that this isn’t your typical booter and makes you feel right at home.
The support team is definitely much better then other stressers we have used in the past, however it doesn’t notify you in any way when you get a response, which is something I think they can work on.
The pricing panel on PolyStress is different then anything else we’ve seen, with custom drop down menus allowing you to select any plan you want, we think this is very intuitive and one of the more sleek purchase options we’ve seen.
PolyStress offers some of the most advanced DDoS methods and hardest hitting power in the market. This booter is highly recommended for anyone trying to take down big servers or DDoS protected hosts, at an affordable price.
This week the ipbooters team investigated the “DataBooter” IP stresser. Our review consisted of several IP stress tests to see if this booter lives up to its name of “#1 IP Stresser”.
As most of you are already aware, a lot of booters these days simply false advertise power in an attempt to get you as a customer. We ran several tests to our dedicated 10Gbit connection server, and the results speak for themselves.
The minimal power is advertised as “10-20Gbps”, and this seems to be very true. We launched a 10 second DNS flood and got this result:
Although it can’t be seen in the image, our 10Gbit server was actually lagging very hard, this means the network switch couldn’t process all the incoming PPS (Packets per second) and caused network issues, we estimate this flood to be about 12-14Gbps, well within what this booter advertises, off to a good start!
After this test we ran a test of the VIP network, this is something we haven’t yet seen with any other IP booters, a network that you pay a premium fee to access and it is designed to take down DDoS protected hosts.
I would post a picture of the results, however when we DDoS’d our 10Gbit server it actually instantly crashed. This is unreal, as even with network overhead it should take a solid 4-5 seconds for packet loss to spike high enough to disconnect the entire uplink. What this means is the flood was unimaginably large, somewhere in the range of 60Gbps+ !
It is safe to say that Data Booter is one of the most reliable, hardest hitting stressers out there, and it has the IP booters team recommendation.
With the recent spike in the IP stresser market, there are literally hundreds of booters competing for the #1 spot. Which is why free IP booters are very hard to come across, most are just scams trying to make money off you.
After verifying a captcha, we were granted access to the free IP stresser presented on quez stresser. It advertises that it “hits harder than 90% of paid booters.”, which we decided to put to the test.
We launched a test NTP flood for a duration of 10 seconds to our 10Gbit server, and got an output of 250MB/s, or roughly 2Gbps.
For a free booter this is unheard of, the only draw backs appear to be that only 15 floods may run at once, and you have a maximum flood time of 900 seconds (15 minutes).
We congratulate for the work done by the quez stresser team and hope they offer free IP booter services for many years to come.
Skype resolvers have been around for years, and in the ever growing market that is skype resolvers it can be an important security step to protect your own Skype name from being resolved.
Before you can protect yourself from a Skype resolver, you must first understand how a resolver grabs your IP. Most resolvers work the same way, they purchase windows RDP hosting and set up a resolver “stub” on them, which are later called by the Skype resolver website to resolve a users IP. These windows RDP servers are what do the actual resolving, and the Skype resolver is just a frontend that returns the Skype user IP address to you in a neat, professional manner.
So how do the backend servers do the actual resolving? Thanks to a security hole in an old version of Skype, and the fact that Skype is P2P, or peer-2-peer network, it is possible to connect to any user on the Skype network and check incoming packets for their appropriate IP address, as you are making a direct connection to there network.
Okay, so how do I actually protect my IP from being resolved?
No matter what security steps you make, it will always be the same setup of putting another network in front of your own. Proxy tunnels work great, as then the Skype resolver will only see the proxy IP and return that, protecting you. However this is a more difficult step and can be costly, a much easier step is implementing a solution that microsoft has already provided!
Go to: Tools->Options->Advanced->Connection
Tick “Allow direct connections from your contacts only.” and click Save.
That’s it! Almost no Skype resolvers will be able to resolve you, only very few that have “beta bypass” will still be able to get your IP, such as the Skype resolver located at: http://exostress.in/skype-resolver/ can still get your IP address!
Now you may be wondering, why should you hide your IP address from Skype resolvers? The answer is pretty clear, when somebody gets your IP address then can boot you offline with IP booters, or IP stressers. However you can also turn the tables, and setup a VM, run Skype and NOTHING else, then run a program such as wireshark to check incoming connections and resolve your Skype, remember, skype is peer 2 peer, so YOU will see the RESOLVERS IP address, and YOU can IP boot the skype resolver! This is advanced and we will not be going over it in this tutorial, however it can easily be done.
Please keep in mind by doing the above steps you will still be able to be resolved by people who have you added on Skype, however most people cannot do this and it is usually not a problem. Even with a proxy + direct connections only enabled, no Skype proxy is capable of proxying your UDP traffic, such as when you are in a Skype call, leaving your IP exposed, but once again most people cannot do this.
The only 100% fool-proof way to keep your Skype IP protected from Skype Resolvers is by using a VPN, the one we recommend is https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ as it is anonymous with no logs and is capable of protecting UDP traffic from IP sniffing.
