- I am under DDoS. What can I do? 4 answers
I am writing a web service that has a lot of vicious competitors. Vicious as in: people have been getting DDoS'd within hours of setting up shop in this arena.
The service will consist of:
- a website that you can sign up to and check on stats/etc... (all of which is served using https)
- a web service that runs in the port 8000+ range.
What (if any) port will be easiest to attack and/or bring down the server? The web server or the web service?
I know nginx has some pretty good DDoS protection so I am looking into that and load balancing for the website.
Any suggestions as to dynamic DDoS protection against various other ports with linux would be appreciated.
