Does DigitalOcean have an Anti DDOS protection??
I am really concerned about this. I don’t plan to use Cloudflare as it forces me to use their free SSL cert which I don’t like, I have my own certs which I bought especially for my wordpress website and I also plan to use an EV cert in one day which Cloudflare doesn’t support in their free plan. Also I have a premium DNS service, so cloudflare is really out of my border. I am wondering what should I do if I am getting a DDOS attack? I read many horror stories how droplets are disabled for 3 hours without letting access, and how they are unable to handle flood. I am wondering Does DigitalOcean have an Anti DDOS protection at least in their end? can it at least handle small DDOS attack? I saw some people have stated, DigitalOcean isn’t for production and only for developers. Is that even true?
