I really think that Dreamhost should improve their DDoS Protection methods. Even if it’s a addon service to our hosting.
Some Dreamhost Customers cant use third-party services like Cloudflare, etc.
As seen in previous events, Dreamhost has been attacked before. I spoke with some Dreamhost Staff about the protection and they said there is little to none protection for customers servers no matter if you have a VPS, Dedicated Server, or Shared Server. The only protection in place is one internally to protect Dreamhost itself.
I think there needs to be some sort of subscription or something for us to protect our sites with Dreamhost not a third-party.
