How well does software anti-DDOS at VPS level work?
Not an expert on anti-DDOS but was wondering about how VPSes on say DO, Linode or providers who do not offer anti-DDOS services can protect themselves. Came across this list of software that can be used at the VPS level to mitigate DDOS attacks: https://www.globalsign.com/en-sg/blog/how-to-prevent-a-ddos-attack-on-a-cloud-server/
Some of them look quite easy to implement out of the box and am considering using a lightweight one to at least have some protection. Would be grateful for some advice on their usefulness.
