DDoS protection


New Member
Do you believe that DDoS protection is effective - software firewall / hardware firewall / 1Gbps.
Are there many webmasters who use it?
Not a lot of webmasters use DDoS protection due to the cost. It requires more than a simple software or hardware firewall.
A software or hardware firewall can be effective against smaller attacks, but for larger ones, you are going to need more than a firewall.
Hardware or Software firewall are not capable of handling DDOS attack. Proxy shield may help in controlling the DDOS attack but its too expensive.
