    Do you believe that DDoS protection is effective - software firewall / hardware firewall / 1Gbps.
    Are there many webmasters who use it?

    It depends on the attack rate. For small attacks it will be effective but for bigger attacks it depends on the kind of protection you have.

    I used CloudFlare on a different forum, in the past, to help protect against DDOS. I was using their free plan and eventually turned it off, because I felt that it was doing more harm than good. Perhaps I was just unlucky or maybe you need to use the paid service in order to get good results.
