What actions should be performed to restore a website after a DDoS attack?
My **shared** hosting provider suffices (at least on contract) daily, weekly, and monthly automatic backups; besides that, I also routinely backup my website's filetree and database not automatically into my PC (clouded), so I am quite covered by means of backups to my website.

I never had a DDoS attack that might crash my website (I would guess, alongside the websites of all other customers which their websites are being hosted on the same shared hosting environment); and I don't really know how, **if at all**, it could effect the "neighboring" website's and my own website's filetrees and databases.

What actions should be performed to restore a website **after** a DDoS attack (while hoping the attacker would do it just once, before taking any further actions to also prevent such attacks)?
