No normal host will help you. They will all null-route in a large ddos attack situation and properly so.
Virtually any unmanaged host and almost all managed hosts in North America or Europe will null route your server under a heavy ddos attack to a single server. Unless you are hosted with a datacenter that provides ddos mitigation services and pay for that option, the host will have no choice. Large Ddos attacks endanger other customers, consume huge amounts of bandwidth and require specialized technical support and equipment for proper mitigation, which costs customers a substantial premium to obtain.
For smaller data-centers, failure to immediately null route can result in such extreme congestion that the entire data-center may be paralyzed, resulting in the inability of the core router to function properly, basically taking the data-center offline, so there is really no choice, but to null route the attack, upstream or have all customers deprived of service.
