A DDOS magnet is coming my way.
So we just reeled in a new client which is great. My problem is, they'll be a DDOS target for sure. We're developing their website and backbend and since we established a great relationship business wise they want us to handle the hosting as well. We're running some nodes with protection for ease of mind but have never been hit so far. Basically I don't want to stick them on a node hosting the average Joe's small website.
As their current host knows they're moving as soon as we finished up they're not really cooperating by giving more details about past attacks and so on. My best guess is they're on ovh/sys but they stuck the domain on Cloudflare so I can't be sure. Could temporarily remove cloudflare as soon as we got control to collect data but it'll leave their website vulnerable for a small time.
We need a dedicated server with good DDOS protection. EU preferred but US will work as well. Minimal specs would be 8GB ram, storage not that much (SSD / HDD , 2 drives preferred), and about 500GB -1TB transfer. Important to us is that the host is ok with a regular DDOS coming their way and is willing to work with us if shit hits the fan. Not looking for offers just suggestions on where to look. Budget not set but up to $100 a month I guess. Any thoughts of where to look avoiding the obvious? What's your experience with regularly being attacked? By the way, the client is 100% legal. It's a small law firm specialised in cybercrime hence they'll attrack some attacks
