I wont bother commenting about Lunarpages cause they simply suck. There are FAR better hosting options than Lunarpages. And about ddosprotection.com, they are VERY expensive. Gigenet or awknet are much better options IMO and at reasonable prices.
So we end up with solutions based on specialized hardware that blocks DDoS (those hostings have invested LOTS of $$$ in DDoS protection which translates in a higher price). For a community site funded by donations and ads, those hosts are not always accesible so DDoS can be a pain in the ass.
Back where we started. I still dont see the "its easy to stop a DDoS" solution and with easy I meant the magic way of doing it fast and cheap.[/b]
