Hi @carterwu768210 , welcome back!
What Deployment method are you currently using?
And yes, Autoscale Deployments do come with DDoS protection.

Autoscale
(1 vCPU / 2 GiB RAM / 3 Max)
this is what i am using ,but i got DDoS attack .



please help how to set the deploy the defend

DDOS protection is included so you shouldnt be getting DDOSed. I have sent this to Replit staff, you will likly need to wait until after the new year for a response.
