So … I’m trying out the cloud hosting thing for the first time. I’ve maintained several small web sites on a FreeBSD VPS for several years, and have a lot of Linux experience, so I don’t expect too many surprises … still, I’m new to cloud hosting, and I don’t completely understand what it is (partly because cloud providers don’t seem to like to give straightforward technical details). So I want to take certain steps to secure my droplet, but I just want to know if there are any ‘gotchas’ I need to be concerned about in a cloud hosting environment.
Here’s the procedure I have followed on the other VPS:
Any reason why any of these steps wouldn’t work?
Thanks in advance for any feedback!
