Imagine you run a popular ice cream shop. On a regular day, you can handle all the customers who come in for ice cream without any issues. But one day, a huge crowd shows up, not to buy ice cream, but just to stand in line and take up space. This makes it impossible for your real customers to get inside and buy ice cream. This is what a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack is like.

DDoS protection is like having a team of security guards outside your shop. They identify and stop the people who are just there to cause trouble, allowing your real customers to get in and buy ice cream without any problems. In the context of a website, DDoS protection helps keep your site online and accessible, even when it's under attack from a flood of fake traffic.
