Dedicated IP x DDOS Attack
I've got a new server at Softlayer and I started to have a big problem after deciding using dedicated IPs for each site looking for improve SEO of each one.
Well,yesterday after doing that, my server started to receive DDOS atack. Currently, I have around 4400 connections hits on my Apache.
I asked to my host support solve this issue, but since yesterday they are still trying to mitigate that.
"The attack is still strong, sorry, we cannot provide definite time to fix a ddos
attack , as this will depend on the size and kind of attacks,
or if the attackers are persistent".
So what should I do in this situation? How to avoid it?
Use a dedicated server from Blacklotus, no matter you have one IP or 255 IP, all protected.
I wouldn't like to change my host company because of that. I need help to solve it.
1.Change IP address of your websites immediately
2.Put new IPs behind cloudflare
3.Put your sites live again
for cloudflare ddos protection he should pay $200/M/IP. it is better to get a dedicated server with ddos protection.
In this case you should move for a DDoS protection company.
If its only small websites you can just get a protected webhosting, also you are able to get dedicated IP for each website.

Since each site is on a separate IP, why dont you just null route the offending IP for the mean time?
Null route is temporary way but is not a solution
Notice why I said "In the mean time". I am sure he doesn't want the rest of his web sites on the server down...it was a tip buddy

Maybe solveddos.com can help you.
Did you or SoftLayer determine what type of DDOS it is? 4400 connections sounds like a TCP Syn Flood that filled up your NIC interrupts. Solveddos may be a good fit for that, but I dont' see a reference to PPS in their plans. Understanding the TYPE of DDOS you're experiencing is key to implementing a solution. Good luck.
