Which hosting company is good against DDOS attacks???


Which hosting company is good against DDOS attacks???

I have a phpnuke web site that gets DDOS attacks, almost everyday.

I would like to find and move my site to a hosting company
that is not effected by ddos atacks.( or at least can minimize it)

Can you guys refer me to a hosting company that
will ease my pain and suffer?

my recent hosting company raising my monthly fee continuosly,
because my site gets ddos attacks.

It realy bothers me that hackers can play with us so easiely
and we have to accept what ever they do.

If we don't fight back, we just make them laugh at as
that we are helpless and have no clue what to do.

most of them are lamers that have hack scripts that they use.


please do your best to help me out,
I am really frustrated right now.

thanks

May i ask what your sites content is about? You may be atracting the hackers yourself, in which case the host has every right to raise your monthly fee.

Posting that a company has high security measures in place and that it is unvulnerable to DOS attacks, is like inviting hackers to generate such attacks.

Personally I do not think it is not ethical to charge you extra for such attacks, on the grounds that security is something the host needs to take care of and not the customer (yourself). Some of my company's customers have transfered their hosting account to us for the same reason, but we have yet to see such attacks, which prompts me to think that this is a nasty trick used by overselling hosting companies.

It wouldn't surprise me if your host offers unlimited everything or nearly unlimited resources.

My content is helping newbies to install phpnuke web sites.
my site is like a online school for young kids.
we are teaching them how to manage nuke sites, how to use mysql and how to build web sites
I really enjoy helping people and don't want hackers to stop me doing what I enjoy the most ..
my site gets avarage 2000 hits every day.
during the ddos attack, mysql gets too many requests because of ddos attack and web site goes down.
OR my hosting company suspends my site to stop ddos attacks

So any help from you guys??

Well its impossible to control DDOS attacks. Their is many host out their that have taken measures to protect themselfes from these attacks including myself. Your current/previous host should have not charged you extra for mistakes from their part.

I know that its impossible to stop ddos attacks.
but at least I need to find a new company that has better security against ddos attacks.

I do not want to suspect about my current hosting provider yet.
but how can I find out if he is telling me th truth or not ??

I am still waiting to find out if there are any hosting companies that protected against ddos attacks

I need to move my web site ASAP

There is probably no sane web hosting company that does not protect it's network against DOS attacks. It is their network and being attacked means downtime for the servers attacked.

This is what every hosting company wants to avoid. If you change host and there are no DOS attacks, then it will obviously be your current host playing dirty. Keep us informed of what happens when you move your site.

It would also be a good idea to search for reviews and comments regarding your host in WHT, or post your hosting provider.

first of all, I need your guys input to find a secure hosting
company with good ddos protection.

my recent company says, during the ddos attacks, server slows down and he gets complains from other customers.
I guest he can not stop ddos attacks, and my site gets suspended
to save other customers sites.
is this a fair deal?
what about my site ???

D/DoS Mitigation isn't cheap, or easy. So I think given that, it is fair your site got suspended, but on the flip-side your host needs to look in to mitigation techniques.

My question is, anybody knows a shared hosting company
with mitigation techniques.???
I've invested one year and so many hours to have my site
to be succesful ..
I do not want my hard work go down to drain because of
some kiddie scripts and hacks.
I have an obligation to my members.. I need to provide them
with good uptime.
I do not want to give up and I will never do that.

I see that I get no help from you guys too.

All I ask is an information to keep me going.

I am willing to pay good money to a shared hosting company
so I can invest my time to improve mysite and
not to worry everyday if my site will go down any minute.

Finding a host willing to take on you knowing that you are prone to DDoS is going to be hard. Some networks are stronger than others, always look for the medium sized companies. Those big enough to get prioity response from the datacentre, yet so commercialised they won't go beyond and above the call.

Smaller companies won't have the resources nor staff to deal with DDoS, needing a master switch is normally a sign of a larger company.

Must be some honest hosting companies out there
that willing to give good support and security to their customers.

do not tell me that all hosting companies wants
customers with few HTML pages so he can pocket the trouble free money and get rid of the sites that getting ddos attack.

we need to wake up and see all picture.

I am sorry if I sound angry but this situation is bothering for a long time. I hope you understand my feelings.

man, a hosting company needs to make money out of the customer. if you are causing them trouble, then it may sound harsh. But you are no longer economical to keep. It's the way of the world, if you are making them loose money then you have to expect to pay more.

You're going to have to either change your site domain, that should keep them away for a while or hire some goons with a ton of bots to fight back.

just remember, the guys didn't have to post. they are trying to help, just because it's not the answer you want doesn't make them wrong.
