How many of you are familiar with DDoS protected servers? I don't mean Clouflare or rerouting... but your actual server (dedicated, vps, cloud) that is in itself completely protected against attacks.

...What's the actual question you want to get at? Are we familiar? Yes. Do I think proxy protection is just as good? Yes...especially since they rarely slow down the connection to the site now days and are much cheaper than hardware protection.

Recently been trying out Pyschz.net. They seem to have a nice setup in regards to DDoS protection. Good deal on some of the plans that come with free 20Gbps protection.

Well OVH/SoYouStart support is just a matter of few minutes or few hours for me.

I've never had good experiences with their support, but they're not aimed at giving support regardless. Would recommend them if you need a huge server and know what you're doing :p

I guess it depends on your "level" of support required. All I need them to do is plug new hardware in if there is a failure or to make sure that the networking is working. For the OS related stuff, I do it myself so their level of support is just fine for me.

BudgetVM also provides some limited DDOS-protection as standard. Honestly, you're better off using a mix of cloudflare alongside network level protection.
