Hello, new to digitalocean, I have created my first droplet here and i immediately went to configure my firewall following this nice tutorial : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-setup-a-basic-ip-tables-configuration-on-centos-6
I have jumped from another company here, today, after 10 days of trying to setup(and learn) a simple web server for several domains(nothing fancy). While my vps was new i was under some sort of attack/scan all the time which led others submitting abuse tickets to my provider thus my vps being locked. So the question is, is the above setup enough to NOT cause any inconvenience to my self and to others and give me enough time to further improve my firewall rules ?
Thanks in advance.
(Sorry for putting this out in such a generic and “noobish” way but i want to start with a good base.)
