    $30 is not for managed VPS. Management fee only costs more than that. Also, no one can say your website will not receive DDOS attack. When it comes, DDOS filter will be very expensive. Think again about your requirements and budget

    Oh mkhmer, the hosting company I use, Turnkeyinternet, provides server hardening for $59.99.. check it out..

    Update: But dunno whether it's only for servers owned by them.. just have an online chat with them.. and post the results here..

    There are scripts and tweaks you can do to mitigate a DDoS attack but if you get hit with enough traffic these will not be effective.

    1,116 try them. I'm guessing that's what you were asking for? Get them for a month and ask them to harden it and tweak it. They're quick to respond so it would be your best bet.

    Hope that helps.

    Software can help stop DDoS but a proper botnet will still kill your site in seconds.
    You need to get hardware and therefore its generally better not to outsource this.

    question here ( from a humble point of view): what you said depends on type of attack or is it a general thing?

    I know there is hardware ( the only one that comes to my mind is Rio Rey) but would it justify the cost if OP has his box in a facility without DDOS? how could he implement a hardware protection system in a physical server that does not belong to him ( he just rents a piece of cake)

    You won't survive DDOS if someone is really out to get you. That's a fact. Botnets nowadays will clog your 1GB pipe no problem, and the only thing that may save you is your ISP. For the most part, unless you have a nice switch that can discard DDoS packets, you're boned.

    As for hardening your VPS, have you tried the employment offers forum? Post about a one time VPS hardening need, and name a price. I am certain someone will take you up on the offer.

    How about one time $30 fee for:

    - WHM/CPanel VPS optimized which is already installed, just need tweak
    - Security protection from DDOS and other security hardening

    I already got WHM/Cpanel VPS-Optimized version install and ready to go actually, I want to only make sure that everything is right and secure.

    If someone interest, PM me and we will talk in detail as I need report on final result of what have been done too.

    Remember these are services not products one persons definition of hardening a server could be installing updates while another could be settings up IDS,HIDS,grsec and selinux, caveat emptor.
