Web hosting Protection, is it Real or just Paranoia
Every web hosting company has a security button in their main menu somewhere, offing protection against all sort of attacks, DDoS, ICMP or TCP/UDP floods, GET flood, I don't understand all of this of course.
Do we have to take this offers, which could range between $300 a month to $3000, or should we take down hackers our selves like we would do in our house if a bugler gives us a visit?

About DDoS, some company like OVH provide the protection for free (with a 10TB network dedicated to mitigate DDoS).
But for ICMP and other TCP/UDP floods, you can block them by adding few lines to your server configuration, so it doesn't make sense to pay for that.
Here an exemple for debian : https://klaver.it/linux/sysctl.conf

And for all other attack, your provider cannot protect your website against SQL injection for example, without having a full control on your web server settings. So I do not think they provide anything for this part.

Thank you, who needs custom support when one could get a quick and accurate answer like this. You know, I need to clear this security issue first, cause I don't joke with the user personal information.
