I'm currently with a web hosting account whose servers seem to be constantly down due to DDOS attacks. I check my analytics daily and I'm seeing a major surge in fake traffic for several of my URLs totaling around 60 visits a day per site. Most of these are from Russia and through sources such as buttons-for-websites.com and other usual suspects.
So due to my frustration at never being able to connect to my own website I'm seriously considering moving to another host, but I'm assuming that because these spammers have my URL, they will keep hitting my site no matter what server I'm on, correct?
If so, I'd consider purchasing a new domain name when moving servers, but what steps should I take to prevent these unwanted visitors?
