    Best configuration for DDoS protected frontend webserver

    SadySady Member

    Hope you all are in good condition :)
    I'm going to release my blog but I do have fears in my mind of getting DDoS & something so what I want to have is some kind of DDoS protection with a Nexhost's egg. I already have webserver configured with Nginx, php-fpm (Centminmod) on another server which has 1GB of RAM. Since Nexhost's egg has only 256 MB RAM so can't host anything more than a frontend. I'm unable to understand how can I achieve this:
    Nexhost's DDoS protected VPS serving as a Nginx front-end
    Another 1GB VPS serving as a complete web server

    Can you please guide me about how can I do this or what configuration I need? Keep it noted that I also need SSL to be configured.

    Thank you!

      Just setup a reverse proxy within a location / {} block .


      Here's a sample config

      server {
              listen   80;     
              listen   443 ssl spdy;
              ssl_certificate_key     ssl.key;
              ssl_certificate            ssl.combined_crt;
              location / {
                   proxy_set_header    Host              $host;
                   proxy_set_header    X-Real-IP         $remote_addr;
                   proxy_set_header    X-Forwarded-For   $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
                   proxy_set_header    X-Forwarded-SSL   on;
                   proxy_set_header    X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
