    flood blocker via htaccess


    (i am using vb 3.6.8 in shared host)

    is it possbile to block flood attack using htaccess

    I don't think it's your job preventing SYN attacks. It's the hosting company's job. You should ask the hosting company to get rid of the flood. After all there are better tools for dealing and filtering syn attacks than apache's own configuration methods.

    Thats bad... I can't really think of any smart way or automatic way to prevent floods. If you note a heavy connections load from a single IP address you can always put it in the "Deny from" list in your .htaccess

    The problem is that it won't stop the SYN floods. The web server will still experience heavy load. The only result will be to restrict those malicious attempts to view your website's content.
