I’m aware there’s already questions on this topic. But I have some specific questions about DigitalOcean’s solution to DDoS.
I’m using DigitalOcean as a Proxy (BungeeCord) and for website hosting for my Minecraft network. I have experienced DDoS attacks before on DigitalOcean, and my Droplet gets disabled for 3 hours. Which is a long time to wait if I have a few people trying to play on my network, and they can’t if this is active.
I am wondering if I were to install CloudFlare onto my Droplet, if that would prevent this from happening, and instead redirect the DDoS attacks? If not, how else could I do this, because it can be quite irritating when a DDoS attack can occur and your network be shut down for 3 hours when it would of initially only occurred for a short period of time.
Is it possible the deactivation of the droplet’s networking could be disabled as soon as the DDoS stops?
Thanks a ton,
