    One of my domains had a DoS attack but my hosting company blocked all the domains in my account. Is that normal?

    Is it possible to check details like IP addresses involved in the attack in the cPanel?

    You'd likely need to look at your site's firewall logs, or the logs of the hosting provider (which they most likely won't send you).

    Cloudflare has some services to deal with this. If you're on a shared server, all domains on that server will suffer from the attack, even other customers.

    If you are using wordpress then there are some firewall plugins.

    e.g. Wordfence Security and/or All In One WP Security & Firewall.

    Plus add your site to Cloudflare which will block excess traffic (DDOS) from other networks. Combining these things will 100% stop DDOS attacks..

    Since you are already under DDOS.. even IF you go behind CF without changing the root IP nothing will change..
    The person who is attacking you know your IP already and so CF will do nothing.

    Change IP, go behind CF and apply the WP recommended above plugins.
