    Investigate some of my suggestions from above posts.

    Also investigate apache anti - dos modules such as mod_evasive.

    See Security Tips - Apache HTTP Server for further security config - google is your friend on this subject as youre far from being the only person with this problem.

    Good luck.

    I fail to see how informing anyone about different terminology is an irrelevant statement. Different people help in different ways, different people learn in different ways. Nothing is irrelevant if it has to do with the current topic, and can inform anyone who may come across it of something.

    Protect not really, see the earlier "pissing off" quote (it doesn't mention extortion though), mitigate maybe. Sure you can buy more bandwidth, use packet filtering, rate limiting, proxying and load balancing but as far as DDoSes go an endpoint can accomplish only so much on its own. Make certain you are on friendly terms with your service provider and know exactly what they can do for you in terms of routing, filtering, rate limiting. You really need upstream to help you out. If they don't or won't: vote with your wallet. Some datacenters can offer you on-demand extra bandwidth, traffic scrubbing, proxying, content distribution, DNS load balancing et cetera, basically all the dedicated hardware and services you can't do yourself if you host things yourself but such features may prove to be prohibitive in terms of money. You'll have to select the trade-offs that are acceptable in your situation, devise an emergency plan and practice it.
