There's no way of preventing it only ways to handle it. If your experiencing ddos I suggest hiring a server administrator to help with that or switch hosts to a more reliable hist who offer ddos protection services. Cloud flare is good to use too but just like any software or product on earth it has its ups and downs but in the end it works and gets the job done

Hey
You can't really prevent it
All you can is to use a hoster providing hardware defense from DDoS attacks (and you can suddenly figure out that it not as good as they say it in their advertisings!)
Or you can use CloudFlare yourself, and it can be your only and best option at this moment.

CloudFlare is definitely an awesome tool in a DDoS attack situation BUT I must tell you its insufficient on its own. I must agree however that it lessens the effect a great deal

No one can really prevent a DDOS attack, all you can do is limit the effects of an attack on your server

Cloudeflare is a great solution , but it is better to choose a provider who has DDos Protection.

If you run your own servers, then you need to be able to identify when you are under attack. That's because the sooner you can establish that problems with your website are due to a DDoS attack, the sooner you can start to do something about it.

To be in a position to do this, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with your typical inbound traffic profile; the more you know about what your normal traffic looks like, the easier it is to spot when its profile changes. Most DDoS attacks start as sharp spikes in traffic, and it's helpful to be able to tell the difference between a sudden surge of legitimate visitors and the start of a DDoS attack.

As others have mentioned, you cannot 'prevent' a DDOS attack. You can help mitigate it, but that is really about all you can do.

Cloudflare is an excellent option and can help you drastically reduce this

Another great option is Litespeed. I've found this to handle requests, etc, so much better.

Thirdly, a good IPtables interface. CSF comes to mind. Setup the rules properly and you'll be golden.

Using all of the above , you should be pretty well set when fighting off attackers.

The only true way to prevent DDOS attacks is to not have a website, but that is not an option so as many have said you can take steps ti mitigate it.

The most cost effective way is to find a host that offers true mitigation against Layer 3/4 attacks and the much harder to detect Layer 7 attacks, combine this with Cloudflare and you should be safe from all but the most aggressive attackers.

Fortunately majority of attacks are not in the category of "most aggressive attackers "

I have seen DDOS attack, Go after ports at were blocked by CSF Firewall. The DC still flagged the ip address for 24 hours.

There are different types of DDOS attack. Like if they go after the ip address with a random port. It does not seem like cloud flare is going to protect you.

If I was looking for true ddos protection, would need it to check all traffic to the server itself. Then block all traffic to the port being DDOS attack. This option does cost alot but it would be the best option to stop DDOS attacks.

Provider with ddos protection would be the best choice.
