Good for some types of attacks (brute force password hacking), not DDoS.

Set iptables. Besides that - well - not at reasonable price.

Finally we solved this issue, it was an external attack on the main server.

Anyone knows a good way to protect ourselves from DDOS or other external attacks?

Thank you very much.

Hi, you restarted already as I see. Try updating software and check what is not working. Since this is an unmanaged server you would need to get external help.

Hi,

like from topic, we have a dedicated server in kimsufi (from OVH) that since this morning has started to have issues on the websites that we have hosted in it. We already have done a server test with in the rescue mode and all seems ok hardware-wise. Ping 's over our websites seem to work also but still the websites wont load and a connection timeout excepcion (Error code: ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT). How can we fix this?
