Question

How I can protect my server from DDoS attacks?

Hi,

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.

Regards, Gabry

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

If you running a web server, you should look into to cloudflare. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/does-digital-ocean-comes-with-anti-ddos-protection

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.
