A DDOS attack costs BIG money.
Unless there has been a recent raid on the major botnet services, you'd likely need less than $500 for a 5 hour DDoS attack using a large cluster of infected IoT devices using various techniques to amplify the traffic. IoT based Terrabit-scale stresser services have been available through the dark web for several years now.
You would obviously need to know where to go, who to talk to and who to trust if you want massive attacks that can shut down a major provider, but DDoS'ing is only expensive if you want to use legit services to test the stability and capacity of your own web based services.
