Bot Blocking with Nginx
We have a regular Digital Ocean Droplet running Nginx / gunicorn/ django. We want to set up some defenses against bots and other malicious requests. I found this really nice solution, https://kb.linuxlove.xyz/nginx-badbotblocker.html.
Then it occurred to me that maybe DO is doing some of this before traffic gets to our droplet server. Does anyone have experience with the nginx-badbotblocker and what if anything does DO do for us out of the box?
