How to protect your server from DDos Attack

What is DDos attack:
On the Internet, a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is one in which a multitude of compromised systems attack a single target, thereby causing denial of service for users of the targeted system. The flood of incoming messages to the target system essentially forces it to shut down, thereby denying service to the system to legitimate users.

There is a perl script which prevent this:
First do the Installation of a simple perl script:

chmod 0700

chmod 0700 uninstall.ddos

When you run this Perl script, it will then run an netstat command check how many times each IP is connected and if there are more then the number of connections you specified then it will automatically run a command in APF for the IP to be banned.
