comment Amazon EC2 bandwidth charges in case of unwanted incoming traffic(ddos/flood)?
Yes DDOS is one of the few cases where you can't do much, especially if done right. I was more interested in the Amazon's side of things and if they are willing to provide support or fee reduction for those cases, rather then ethics or how can I defend from the instance standpoint(which is basically impossible). Thanks for the answer, nonetheless.

Tuning Primer is definitely worth a run. I'll return with an outcome once i've done that.

comment Extreme fine tuning MySQL performance wise on a Linux server
Modifying the source of web apps running on the server is out of the question. My question is specific to MySQL Server tuning and not web application source code tuning. :-)

@MadHatter, but i do want to defend, but how can you, shutting down an instance is not a desired solution? You can't do much in such cases, since the traffic gets in no matter what you do at the instance firewall level, since by the time it gets to the firewall it already counts as in traffic to your instance, unless you forbid the traffic using the ec2 provided firewall. Now if that ddos is targeted at your service ports/services, shutting them down is not a desired solution either since that will basically shut your service down(which is bad business). Now what remains is help from amazon..

comment DNS Zone file and virtual host question (repost because my question got moved and now I can't comment on the original for some reason)
You should check the respective zone records file entries for those domains in named.conf. If they are specified and those files don't exist that will most probably generate errors in BIND. You should be able to see those in the logs or upon starting the server. If no file entry is specified for those domain in named.conf those domains most probably weren't configured and left as is or they are slave or forward zones. zytrax.com/books/dns/ch7/zone.html#file
