    That's awesome! It's a really good feeling when you find a reliable ISP. Not having to deal with these issues is why you pay them for the service.

    A null-route is not a goddamn solution grumble grumble. Excellent info from your friend. I definitely learnt something today!

    With great difficulty. I run a small website that got DDoS'd a little while ago. Not only did they take down my site, but everyone else on my provider's network.

    Being such a small provider with no capacity to handle such a large DDoS, their solution was to kick me off their network entirely. Effectively they gave me 6 hours to backup my stuff and hit the road.

    For mitigating websites, services such as CloudFlare work with limited success. They have their servers sit "in front" of your own, sort of acting like a proxy or gateway. Traffic is inspected and only legitmate users are let through.

    Higher capacity networks, such as those owned by ISPs, can employ more complex methods of distinguishing 'real' from 'fake' traffic, and passing that through. However, a DDoSer can very quickly change their attack method to adapt, so it becomes a really annoying game of cat and mouse.

    Honestly, the best method is to just add more capacity. Throw in more servers to adapt. Load balance the end-point that's getting hit. Re-route to higher capacity networks... The list goes on and is very environment-specific. Adding capacity requires time and money and is only really vialbe to companies that can afford it.

    For thesavagemonk's game servers above – it looks to be an automated system set up by the hosting provider. Probably a combination of the methods I described above.

    Looks interesting so far! Although, being an invite only platform might be an issue to begin with.
