DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) or DoS (Denial of Service) is an attack commonly used by minges when they get banned from a server or just get bored. If a server is hit by a DDoS attack, it will most likely go offline if the DDoS is big enough, and the server is shit enough. There are many different types of DDoS attacks, as well as many different and varied methods of taking a server offline. The most common method, usually used by script kiddies (skids) and average minges Involves a large botnet of computers connected together by some sort of RAT or Trojan, or a few very powerful servers with large bandwidth limits. These computers or servers can be used to send bundles of information, also known as packets, very quickly in rapid succession to one server's IP address, which can slow down, crash, or even break the server in some cases.
