Here is the reply I got from them :

Dear Sir,

Thank you for contacting abuse-service of DDoS-Guard. We attach much significance to the lawfulness of the content put in our network or the content passing through it.
As far as you know, presumption of innocence is one of the main legal regulations in many civilized countries.

We apply the following guiding principles:

1. Every person charged with a crime is to be held innocent unless his or her guilt has been proven in accordance with the procedure provided by the federal law and established by valid judgment.
2. An accused person is not obliged to maintain his/her innocence.
3. Unsurmountable doubts as to the guilt of the person are interpreted in favor of the accused person.

Our company can’t act as juridical or investigative authorities and considers crime investigations and ascertainment of guilt as competence of the corresponding authorities which are specified by law. We are ready to consider any claim which is confirmed by the court order or resolution of pretrial investigation authorities.

Please, send us this order if it is available.
Please, always have this order available when you contact abuse- service.

Best regards
Abuse Service
DDoS-Guard.net

Very convenient I have to say.

Basically implying that any kind of content is allowed as long as there is no judicial order.

Another Russian cybercrime paradise protecting the bad guys .

Expert Overview

Hosting Focused on DDoS Protection

DDoS Guard is a hosting company that also provides a variety of other services, mostly focused on providing a safe environment for your website.  DDoS stands for distributed denial of service, and it is a type of attack where people will send a massive amount of traffic to a specific website address.  Either the network is overrun by traffic, or the web hosting server can’t keep up with it all so the website becomes unavailable to users. This type of attack is fairly simple to perform, which is why it has grown to be one of the biggest threats to websites today.  Having good DDoS protection is becoming essential to ensuring your site is up and stable at all times.  This company does a good job at providing this protection.

Uptime & Reliability

Good Stable Hosting

The hosting you’ll get with this company is going to be very stable.  The fact that they can filter out bad traffic will help in this area, and they also use very nice servers to minimize the risk of downtime related to hardware problems.   They don’t have an uptime guarantee that I could find, but from what I have seen with actual users, they do have a very stable service.

Features

Good Overall Hosting Services

The biggest focus is on their DDoS features.  The DDoS features will analyze all traffic and ensure that only legit traffic is getting through.  This will help to minimize any impact from infected computers and other things like that.  From what I can tell, they do a very good job at this and can protect your site from most types of attacks. They break their hosting packges up into different types including remote website protection, Game Server protection, net services protection, hosting protection and more.  This makes it quite easy since you can go through and find exactly what you will be using the hosting for, and choose that.  Within each category they have four options to choose from based on how busy your site or service is going to be. Beyond the DDoS protection, they have good hardware, fair usage restrictions and several other features that make their hosting quite good.

Support

Easy to Contact Tech Support

The tech support with this company is easy to get in touch with and can help you to resolve most common issues.  They are good at detecting DDoS attacks, of course, and will begin preventing traffic almost immediately.

Pricing

Quite Expensive

The hosting with this company is going to be quite expensive.  You’re paying mostly for the advanced DDoS protection, which is a high end service.  For example, for general hosting it starts at $150 per month and goes up to $400.  Other options are less expensive, and some are more expensive, but they are all significantly more than you would pay with another company that doesn’t give the DDoS services.

Summary

Great if You Need DDoS Protection

If you feel like you need DDoS protection, this company is going to be an excellent option.  If your site is not at any real risk of being attacked, than this company is going to be more expensive than you want to pay. Pros:

  • High Quality DDoS Protection
  • Lots of Features

Cons:

  • Price is Quite High
