If you are into gaming or using skype then you must be aware of DDOS attacks, as it’s a common practice where some naughty players ddos other players to win the game because if other players are ddosed then they are disconnected and cannot play. Sometimes some players just ddos other players for fun and some players take games too seriously and just ddos the players of other team to take revenge.
So if you are having issues of being ddosed then i would suggest to try some VPN Tunnel or SSH Tunnel as it will hide your real ip and even if somebody ddoses you they will just ddos your vpn or ssh tunnel provider they won’t be able to attack your real IP, usually the ddosers are able to get your real ip from skype, there are two recommend solutions for hiding your ip:
1) VPN Tunnel – PPTP or OpenVPN
In VPN Tunnel all traffic of your PC goes over the vpn so even if you are browsing any website or playing games or using skype all traffic will go over the vpn so everbody in the world will just see your vpn ip not your real ip.
There are again two options in VPN – PPTP and OpenVPN, i would suggest to go for PPTP VPN as it gives you a dedicated ip unlike openvpn where you get a shared ip, i would suggest to buy pptp vpn from www.sh3lls.net/vpn they offer some very very cheap vpn start at just 5$ per month with unlimited bandwidth usage and not only this their vpn are ddos protected. Also use the coupon code “sh3lls20off” to get another 20% discount so the vpn will finally cost you jsut 4$ per month, cheap deal isn’t it ?
2) SSH Tunnel
SSH tunnel is also a way to hide your real ip but it works like a proxy though with encryption. You can buy ssh tunnel also from www.sh3lls.net/proxy but instead of ssh tunnel i would suggest that you better buy their 10$ Linux VPS as it gives you a dedicated ip not used by anybody else, even linux vps can be used just like ssh tunnel, they even have a nice tutorial about ssh tunnel at http://blog.sh3lls.net/2009/02/15/using-ssh-tunnel-from-sh3llsnet-with-firefox-and-as-a-socks-proxy/
