Prevent? If you figure it out, you'll become a very rich person.
sorry for my bad english, I thought some tool to block, filter or similar
I heard about haproxy
Anybody with expirience?
CloudFlare is good option (and they have a free plan).
While there is no way to "prevent" a DDoS attack, there are ways to mitigate it. Throttling the bandwidth/access per IP per amount of time can help.

Take a look at:
