I wouldn't say that. If is about tcp syn or connect type of an attack, than
those iptables rules + syn cookies in sysctl would help much. If it is kind
of a udp flood than yes, you are right, nothing will help much, only
services like cloudlare, but they are too expensive for saving online radio
I guess. I would analyze, what type of an attack it is and if it is an udp
flood then just move to another ip (if those are not hostname based attacks
of course)
