    Distributed Denial Of Service, the hackers simply overflow your website with special techique which results in your site getting down.

    The best way to avoid DDOS attacks it is to contact your host, if you are located in datacenter, I would contact technical support of the datacenter. They have responsibility to keep your site running on. I don't personally know how to avoid, but myself I was under ddoss attack from a while and I contacted my host and after one week it ended. I got also mail from my hosting company and they said, that they had contacted FBI technical apartament for abussing their service. I think big datacenters have power, so don't hestitate to contact them.

    I used to visit a site that would get DDOS attacked quite a bit. Someone didn't want the site owner to do well with her business so they made it where her site would always go down. She invested in a system to protect it. I forgot what it was called, but it was something rather expensive.
