    No it doesn't. If DDoS will use bandwidth, your website will be down with or without unlimited bandwidth

    Unlimited bandwidth is a deceptive lie some host tell you to get your business. All servers have a set amount of resources and when those are exceeded your site slows to a crawl or stops responding. There is no such thing as unlimited bandwidth.

    What they really should be saying is they don't charge you fro the amount of bandwidth you use.

    So like VirtyBox said, it will not help one single bit against a DDoS attack.

    There are many types of DDoS attacks. A common type is a UDP flood, this will clog up your port to the point where legit traffic will not be able to make it through. A Layer 7 flood like Slowloris will tie up Apache workers until legit traffic is unable to make it through.

    If your blog is under DDoS attack, the best thing to do is to hide behind a HTTP proxy like Cloudflare or similar and then change your sites IP. If you use separate mail servers and setup your DNS the correct way it will make it much much harder for attackers to find the real IP of your website.
