    Let's say someone is DDOS-ing my server. I'd assume I wouldn't be able to connect to it with an SSH client to run commands, but just asking for confirmation.

    Depends...

    That's like saying, there is snow on the road, I assume that I can't drive on the road. Well, that would depend on how much snow, what kind of tires you have, how your suspension is setup, what's the clearance of your vehicle, if your vehicle has 4 wheel drive or not, and if you have a truck, car, tank, military vehicle, etc.
