Go on, have a guess
If you're suffering from a genuine DDOS attack, then you will forever be chasing after it trying to block it using a software firewall on the server. Your only real solution is to have the NOC where your server is hosted enable DDOS protection for your server IP's on their routers. Most reputable datacenters offer that as a free service.

If they won't help, then your next best solution will probably be to move to a different IP subnet if the DDOS is IP targetted. If it is domain targetted, then you're probably looking an losing the affected domain. This type of information can only really be provided by the NOC by analysing their routers.
