    Huge DDOS attack can take down any server. You should look for another alternatives such as DDoS protected hosting services.

    You need hosting with hardware protection. Take a look at ddos protected providers.

    Absolutely right on the money here. Size is what matters most with DDoS. Now, instead of changing hosting, you may consider getting proxy shield against the critters, that way your machine will stay cool and will continue to operate business as usual. I had a similar problem some time ago, and was recommended the vistnet.com guys, they gave me a free trial which was really cool, because while the trial was going on (support really rocks btw), they told me what was going on exactly with my attacks and ultimately I ended up paying for much less than what I though I would have to - based on what my host said about my attacks... Now, I am not saying that hosts lie about the attacks, but sometimes their metrics don't quite cut it in terms of preciseness.

    You might find it beneficial to put your site behind Cloudflare which helps stop the attacks from getting to you. The port speed should help some, but if they are determined they could still overwhelm your server.

    I'm afraid putting your site behind CloudFlare will not solve your problem. They do not provide DDoS mitigation, they put attacking IP's in a ban list, and have a large structure that may alleviate some of the attack effect but when you get hit with something more serious, they'll just cut you off, I promise. I know, I've tried that before and had to abandon this "solution".

    It also depends on port your server is connected, for example if you are connected to 100 Mbps port then 300 MB attack can easily chock the server..
