IP Stresser tools explained


PolyStresser tools

In this article we will be breaking down the uses of various common stresser tools. We’ll be going over everything you need to know about the various tools and will be using PolyStress as an example due to it’s many tools.


  • Domain Resolver
    This one is fairly simple. To use it, simply input a domain and you will be given the IP that the domain resolves too.


  • Site Status Checker
    This uses a few different locations to test the status of a website, based on how many locations can successfully access it.


  • Geo Location
    Used to get the location of an IP address, will not give you the exact location however it will give you a general idea of where they live.


  • VPN Detector
    This tool is used to tell whether an IP is a VPN. This is a tool that is unique to PolyStress and a few others and is highly useful if your target is at home, as you’ll be able to tell if you have their real IP.


  • Skype Resolver
    Used to get an IP from a skype name. The skype resolver is sadly patched by Microsoft in newer versions, however if your target is running an older skype version it will work nearly 100% of the time.


  • Cloudflare resolver
    Used to get the backend IP from a cloudflare protected domain. This sadly works on very few domains, as they have to accept emails on their webserver in order to be vulnerable.


Top 10 IP Stressers

Top 10 IP Stressers

Choosing the right IP stresser is a hard task, so we’re providing a top 10 list to help you choose the right one. This list is based off of power, support, reliability and website design.


#1: PolyStress – http://polystress.com/

PolyStress is our #1 recommended booter for any situation. Their floods are always insanely powerful, support has always been fast and friendly, their plans are cheap and their VIP nodes are very powerful. The Best IP Stressers team personally uses PolyStress and we recommend it for anyone in need of a stresser.


#2: BetaBooter – http://betabooter.com/

BetaBooter is a VERY close second behind PolyStress. Their floods are slightly stronger, more then enough for virtually any server or homeconnection. We’ve never had a downtime issue with BetaBooter, however their support staff is slower than PolyStress’s.


#3: ExoStress – http://exostress.in/

ExoStress is a close third behind BetaBooter. Their floods are slightly weaker, however they are still more than powerful enough for any homeconnection or small server. Their site is very user friendly, with little to no recorded downtime in their long history.


#4: InstaBooter – http://instabooter.com/

InstaBooter is a newer booter that is making some advancements in the stresser industry. We recommend them based off their power and reliability, however their support is quite rude.


#5: DataBooter – http://databooter.com/

DataBooter hits at a reliable 8Gbps+, staff is quick and we haven’t seen any downtime in our months of use. Their VIP is a bit overpriced for the performance however it does hit reliably.


#6: zStress – http://www.zstress.net/

zStress hits a bit lower then the other booters mentioned, however their site is very nice with friendly staff and no downtime at all.


#6: BestStresser – http://www.beststresser.com/ – Free

Despite being free, BestStresser provides a reliable 2Gbps, which is more then enough for a home connection. I’d recommend this to anyone on a budget.


#7: Booter.org – http://www.booter.org/

Booter.org provides a reliable, user friendly stresser with great support. However their power is lacking in comparison to other stressers.


#8: Layer-4 Booter – http://layer-4.com/

Layer-4 booter has been around for several months with medium to high power, however their site design is not the best and their support is fairly slow.


#9: StresserNET – http://stresser.network/

StresserNET is a new stresser that hits fairly hard with a good design, however their site has occasional downtime and their support takes over 12 hours to reply.


#10: vDos – http://vdos-s.com/

vDos has been around for years with little downtime, however their power has fallen off recently. Their site design and support are phenomenal though.

What is an IP Stresser?

What is an IP Stresser?

An IP Stresser is a online paid DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack service that is used to launch short, effective DDoS attacks. IP Stressers typically cost from $10 to $300, depending on your maximum flood length and plan length. Flood length typically ranges from 900 seconds to 7200 seconds.


What is a DDoS Attack?

A DDoS attack is an overflow of incoming data to a connection. As long as the incoming traffic is larger than the connections download speed, the connection will be taken offline. Modern day DDoS attacks employ advanced IP header modification techniques in order to trick vulnerable servers into sending large amounts of data to a target connection, allowing for massive 10Gbps+ floods from some professional IP Stressers.


Is owning an IP Stresser legal?

IP Stressers are completely legal to own in the United States and Canada, however you may want to consult your own countries laws. IP Stresser legality may be dependent on how you use your IP stresser.


How can I protect myself from incoming DDoS attacks?

Sadly, you cannot protect your own home connection from DDoS attacks. However, you can hide your IP using a DDoS protected VPN or proxy. If you use a VPN, any potential DDoSer will not be able to find your real IP address. If said DDoSer already has your IP address, you can likely call your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and have them change it at no cost.
