comment What is a safe ping frequency without it being considered a DDoS attack?
"It is most successful if the attacker has more bandwidth than the victim" - this is an important point. Unless you are pinging a very small website, and have very good internet service, you simply couldn't generate a flood of great enough magnitude. Hence the "distributed" part, by taking advantage of multiple independent connections a DDoS attack doesn't need any one connection that can overpower the server - it's all about combined strength.
