Plenty of websites, servers, and internet connections are victims of DDoS and other hacking attempts. Do you take any precautions and use defense strategies such as CloudFlare? Would you suggest for me to start using one, and why?
If you really want to protect your site from DDos it is better to avoid shared hosting. Hosting company will claim they provide DDos support but it is not advisable. Going with VPS with DDos protection is a wise choice.
I am on shared hosting so their is no problem or neither needed to protect from DDos as the hosting company have to do such things. VPS or a server holders need to learn such things in order to avoid DDos attacks from scammer and spammers. Shared hosting is a shit hosting that doesn't load as VPS host.
To prevent DDOS, I usually try to go with spam prevention plugins first.
There are many plugins available like Stop forum spam etc., There are some third-party services like Cloudflare too. It offers free services to protect our website .
Also, it's better to go with other prevention methods like not having any spam content etc., If you have spam content, that attracts other spambots.
The company gives a precaution on that service.There are some third-party services like Cloudflare too. It offers free services to protect our website.Need to learn such things in order to avoid DDos attacks from scammer and spammers.

Secure Your Network Infrastructure
Mitigating network security threats can only be achieved with multi-level protection strategies in place.
I have read that one of the viable ways to prevent a DDoS attack is the zero trust architecture, which allows to protect and maximize the visibility of access and activities. This type of protection consists of preventing, detecting and responding to external and internal threats through different layers of security.
