how about ddos? do you know about some ddos defender like cloudflare? i need that free script. :/

CloudFlare works, but only if you're willing to pay for DDoS protection, and you are only going to host a website - nothing else will be protected or accessible. This is because CloudFlare works like a proxy for HTTP and HTTPS services.

As for script, I wouldn't bother. It's unlikely to protect you from anything, except for small attacks. What chances does your server have against army of infected Windows XP computers?

Instead, try to ensure that nobody will be willing to pay for DDoS attack. DDoS attacks cost, nobody will be doing them for free. For most websites, this is not an issue, unless your website is about controversial stuff, like politics.

Also, game servers like to invite DDoS. Some people will just hate your server. Perhaps because it's popular, but who would understand those idiots. Don't make your server public, don't advertise it everywhere (this is a really bad idea, trust me). Instead, invite your friends to the server. You don't want people you don't know on your servers. I once had Minecraft server on my VPS, and it wasn't attacked, as it was private, invite-only server.

Cloudflare premium is also not safe

I know one website was having it for quite a time and it was still getting attacks everyday

I just need to be protected from about 10gbps ddos just that nothing else

That links suggests to use dsa for generating keys, which is arguably not proven to be *better* than rsa, btw. This may be better.

Also after creating keys, password-logins can and should be disabled - eliminating that security risk.. Once again, on Ubuntu, these are the basic steps (editing sshd_config):

Code:

^^ Your keys will be used in Filezilla (using sftp) and other programs.. There isn't need for passwords.

[..] tends to be slower too.

Also the console is a (software) layer than can crash / hang / not (be) run(ning) and therefore can't be relied on (and/or isn't very secure Smile); (like it's been posted in this thread)

P.S.

if they want to hack they hack nothing to do that but you secure and make less the possibility for hacking if you using php then use additional protection extension also configure firewall

I have learnt a thing or two about passwords over the years. If you choose a password that is in the dictionary then you can be easily hacked. A combination of letters, numbers and symbols will make your password almost impossible to hack!

Thanks to hostigation.com and freevps.us for VPS3. Special thanks to all admins especially Nevil.Smile

@donsr,

Yes, almost all computer login/authentication could be brute force now a days, some will be hard and some will take a very long time to do, it just take a good hacker who knows about the security system to perform a brute force attack.

Thanks FreeVPS.us! for the free VPS and for all the knowledge that I've learned here at the forum.
