    Jebus Fhist - OK so DDoS and other similarly annoying attacks are a pain in the ass for even the big guys but they have the money and resources to deal with it!

    Why the hell does every host I go with not give a sh!t about my site?

    I have managed hosting and my site has been down for 30 hours in the past 48 hours.

    I get my site up to around 1,000 UV a day and then BAM! An attack comes and the next day when the site comes back up I only get like 500 UV.

    I know it's something all webmasters have to deal with at some point but what can be done about this when low on resources and money?

    I only make money from ads on my site and I would need really high traffic to be making enough to pay for dedicated servers and attack filtering methods etc...

    Anyone with any advice let me know Homey G's

    Thanks

    well... honestly there are scripts out there that can somewhat protect you from being DDOS'ed but not fully. its worth a shot to look into it. i agree that the host should take care of it but seems how they won't. you need a script buddy. try looking on everyones best friend google
