This is out of the scope of MyBB support, but there's little you can do. You're on a free host, which is also less than reliable. I have to ask, how do you know it's a DDOS attack if you don't have server access?

contact your web host - initially they should be able to combat the attacks. you can try using CloudFlare to prevent them

Not much MyBB can do about it. Contact your host and take a look at the tutorial below.

Also, I recommend you to buy a better host.

They admitted to it and I just entered my host CP and...
	Server #26 is under the DDOS attack (IP Nullrouted)
We have just received a HUGE (over 3GB/s incoming traffic) DDoS attack targeting the Server #26. Our CISCO guard firewall was unable to handle such attack, so one of the server IP address - ##.###.###.### was disabled (all the rest websites on this server are working fine).

If your website is using this IP (due to unique IP rotation system only 3% websites are using this IP) it will be unavailable for the next 6 hours. As soon attack will subside, this IP address will be enabled and your website will start working again. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
I was introduced by this beautiful message.

But since they are shared hosting how do you know your site was the target?

Nothing you can do. If you don't have server access, if you're on a shared host, or if your host is mitigating it for you, all you can really do is sit tight and wait.

"over 3GB/s incoming traffic"

Ahh that's nothing compared to some I have seen.

The best option is to keep multiple hosts or move on to a VPS.
