    Server keeps being attacked.

    Hi, my website keeps getting Ddos attacked, i wondering if there is a way to either stop it or make it harder for them to attack the site.

    There is virtually no way to avoid a ddos attack, you (or your hosting provider) can attempt to filter the attack at their routers. You can also install various blocks to help mitigate any damage, but if someone has enough resources and strong desire to be a pain, it would be exceedingly expensive to truely block it all.

    There are hosting companies that tout their ability to minimize or reduce the effects of a ddos, though they are generally more expensive to use.

    I'd suggest mod_dosevasive , it is helpful, but it cannot truly stop a determined DDOS attack.

    Search around the forums for a guide and links.

    I just hate it when people expect their provider to do *everything* for them when they know the server is unmanaged. If you're going to buy a dedicated server and have 0 knowledge, **HIRE AN ADMIN**. I just can't stress that enough.

    If you did, you wouldn't be using that insecure one line PHP code to include files on your site.

    *sigh*
