Hey @cfr1 welcome to the forums!

Always on will just automatically restart the repl. I would recommend using deployments.


Isn’t Always-On being removed? It’s being replaced with Deployments.

That is correct. Should have mentioned that in my post


Ok, thank you. Now for DDOS attacts any protection you guys come with?

Deployments have some DDOS protection (and they’re replacing Replit’s other hosting, including Always On).

What happens if i have Reserved VM it will have DDOS protection right? (Using new Deployments system)

That is the only mention of DDoS protection anywhere in all Replit’s official resources that I know of. Didn’t turn up anything on I would assume that all deployments have DDoS protection.

Thank you. Would you know where to get good DDOS protection? Bc cloudflare aint holding up.
