Reading this techcrunch article : https://techcrunch.com/2015/10/04/why-the-internet-needs-ipfs-before-its-too-late/ it states
IPFS also addresses security problems that plague our HTTP-based Internet: Content-addressing and content-signing protect IPFS-based sites, making DDoS attacks impossible.
The statement "making DDoS attacks impossible seems implausible ? Every site is fundamentally vulnerable to a DDoS attack as it exposes it’s domain name. How does IPFS fix this ? Is it somehow related to if a node becomes offline due to DDoS an alternative node replaces the offline node to serve content, but in this scenario the domain name of the node is changed ?
