Guys, would you mind suggesting me a working Anti-DDOS Software so I can prevent DDOS Attacks??If you need more account details, please PM me. Also, I I hope it totally works for me. Smile

There's really not any such thing as anti DDOS software. You can take precautions against it but it depends what type of server you're on really. if you're using shared hosting (as most people do), it's mostly up to your host though you could utilise Cloudflare to help try mitigate attacks.

Just go through their setup process - it explains everything fairly clearly: https://www.cloudflare.com/sign-up

There aren't really any further protection/prevention against DOS/DDOS attacks (unless using a cloud hosted server) other than using specialised packet filtering for iptables, myself am using CSF (Config server firewall) and iptables with packet filtering (with some modifications). With packet filtering you can limit the number of transmitted packets that are sent from a specific ip address under a specific time interval. This also depends on what kind of service(s) you are using on your service other than apache. Some services require the firewall to keep the packet limit "un-limited".

Cloudflare provides a simple technique that switches your current dedicated ip address into another, since the ip address is the target. They also use load balancers to loan resources from another server while it isn't overloaded.
Another trustable cloud hosting company is Firehost, you should check them out.

What you should begin with (if you haven't already) finding out who is doing this against you.

Try I'm Under Attack if you signup for CloudFlare. It is pretty effective against many common http:// attacks.

Cloudflare is the best when it comes to DDoS protections ONLY if you know how to use it correctly.

Well, I'm Under Attack doesn't really require any configuration (you don't, however, want to turn it on if you really aren't under attack & I've seen people do this...some site functions may not work 100% while it is turned on).

There are other things you can do, like restricting connections to our IPs on your server, but we generally don't recommend doing this because a lot of people forget to change it after the attack has stopped.

If you have root access to the server, install CSF. Find my guide here.
