How I can protect my server from DDoS attacks?

Security Load Balancing DigitalOcean


I'm looking for a DDoS mitigation service. The "Floating IP" is a very good idea but it doesn't prevent DDoS attacks. Do you know a good hosting with DDoS protection?

I contacted support of DigitalOcean but they unfortunately do not provide anything to prevent these attacks.

If you running a web server, you should look into to cloudflare.

There are also other 3rd party DDoS migration services, which works as a proxy and it will filter incoming connections to your server. You have to keep your backend ip address as a secret. Downside with this is, they are usually expensive and adds latency.

Depends on what your trying to protect. What service is getting ddosed?
