Typically, hosting companies suspend the web site until the end of the attack.

The problem is that everyone will see something like "The account is suspended" message.

Also, this may happen when your web site receives a sudden spike of traffic with many thousands of people coming to the web site and just crushing other web sites hosted on the same physical server.
