IS DDOS PROTECTION IMPORTANT WHEN SELECTING A HOST?

Hello! I have noticed that some hosts have DDOS protection while others have dashes. Both have high ratings and good reviews. I would like to ask a question: is this parameter important when choosing (perhaps there is another form of protection against attacks?...

DDoS attacks classified according to four protocols. All types of protection against them work on the principle of a filter or a screen barrier. Most hosts that offer protection against DDoS attacks offer just a filter, but in most cases it only protects against spammers and network layer attacks. If the price between them is minimal, then it is better to take hosting with DDoS protection, and if the price is huge, then it is better to purchase a package from a cloud service that will impose a filter or protection screen.

The bottom line is that even providers that offer you protection against DDoS attacks usually do not provide it in full. That is, the provider takes some measures that will make it difficult for attackers to attack, but for reliable protection, you should use third-party services like StormWall, which filter traffic on the way to your server. 8)

As a rule, most hosters provide protection against such attacks, but at a very basic level.
If you are not expecting DDoS from a snot-nosed schoolboy, but from the serious guys, you should take care of such protection yourself. There are a lot of solutions - it's a very long talk.
At some average level, even the famous Cloudflare will help. Even on a free plan.

If you are not afraid that competitors will seek to arrange for you as much downtime as possible, then you should not worry, but if you provide services, it is better to sleep peacefully when there is protection, since unscrupulous competitors will be able to harm you. If from the technical side, then in the case of ddos protection - at the time of ddos itself, the site will continue to work, and parasitic traffic will be filtered, and in the absence of protection - at the time of DDOS, your IP address will be blocked when traffic drops to the usual level-it will be unblocked again.

Get hosting with DDOS protection, it will be more reliable. Your site will not be subject to various attacks. Pay attention to it s layer according to the OSI type: it is better not to be lower than L3-L4.

The DDoS prevention system of hosting providers should ideally be arranged with their own infrastructure with filtering equipment available and functioning along side with licenses for software;
