My article on how to properly kill affiliate networks with a DDoS attack will be released soon. It is better to prepare in advance and protect your network in the most non-obvious direction – to hide the real source of your postback requests.
- Let’s go to register at AstroProxy.com. Why AstroProxy? No, are you serious? They have a cat in a spacesuit on the main page! But seriously, you can take another service.

There will be no funny pictures with integrations, only harsh code. You can add it to the “Request preprocessing” field in each block of suspicious integrations:
$cc['proxy'] = '184.108.40.206:10555'; $cc['pauth'] = 'yayebu:babuyagu';
