- I am under DDoS. What can I do? 5 answers
I am creating a site that I expect to receive DDoS attacks on occasion.
I have created two EBS AMIs on Amazon EC2. One AMI for a MySQL Database and one for the web host.
I have added an elastic IP to the web host server and have attached an A DNS record to it via Route 53 so I can access my domain.
If I were to create a load balancer, would I have to change the DNS record for the website to the load balancer's ip address? And then simply start as many instances of the web hosting ami under the load balancer as the DDoS calls for?
Is this thinking even somewhat correct?
