Hi everyone,

I have a problem with the current IP, i probably used as a bittorren tracker in the past. Now my website is up and down many times when the server resource was used up. or anyway to prevent these kinds of access from outside?

I also tried to duplicate the droplet to a copy droplet with a new IP but have some issues while switching the domain to the new droplet…

thanks, Minh PS: im not a techie

You can use iptables to setup a firewall, or better yet, use CLoudflare to your domain/s and restrict all external access to your droplet except for cloudflare’s IPs (you can find the info on their website) using iptables, this way only authorized traffic reach your server.
