Comment Had good luck with DOS Arrest (Score 2) 303

Depending on the severity of the attack, CloudFlare may your cheapest option, but be aware that they are not interested in mitigating severe attacks.

A client of mine was DDOSed last year, and my ISP's (shall stay nameless) DDOS Mitigation service could not cope with the size of the attack.
I have briefly tried CloudFlare, but they turned us off within 20 minutes without any notice, and promptly refunded all the money.
Luckily, I had an old contact with DOS Arrest. It was a bit expensive to setup, but they quickly got us back online, so it was worth it in our case.

Those who claim the dead never return to life haven't ever been around here at quitting time.
