After leaving a Node JS app running for a while, I get a message from DO that i'm getting ddos'd
Hi guys, so I made a simple tic-tac-toe online game using Node JS (Express and Sockets.IO). I used nginx somehow to redirect my domain to access the app on the droplet. When the app is running, I can access it fine. After a while I leave the app running, I get a message from Digital Ocean saying my droplet was being ddos’d and they have disabled network on it. This has happened two times in a row after leaving the app running. I gave like three friends access to the app on my domain and I am 99% sure they are not ddosing me. I don’t know why this is happening. The source code for the node JS app is here if that matters: https://github.com/mbhadracant/tic-tac-toe
