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;
