I have a Windows 2012 R2 server with IIS currently set up on it and I was wondering what my options were to make this DDOS Protected. I've seen Remote DDOS Protection available from various sites but I'm not sure if it's what I want.
I also have another Linux server which I can install any distro on if that can be used as the proxy. I'm just looking to hide the Windows server's IP and the proxy masking the real IP to not be able to be hit off easily. Can anyone help suggest my options?
I've been suggested to use NGINX on my linux server and configure that as a reverse proxy to point to my windows server. Can NGINX have effective ddos protection?
