Another vote for CSF. Easy to work with and is run by many of our customers.

DDOS attack can definitely swam your network connection way beyond what the server can handle. A couple of years ago, we saw a DDOS attack that was using 40Gbps of bandwidth.

Hi,

Iptables are good, but at times becomes difficult to manage for new users. The most common one used is the CSF and APF.

CSF is the first choice and 99 of the 100 cPanel servers has it.. because CSF is easy to configure and manage. On the other hand APF is also good one, same as CSF.

Another vote for CSF, very easy to unblock an ip through WHMCS with a free addon also so your customers can sort them selves out.

+1 for CSF, we're using it on all our client's servers. Can't beat it.

Also has a UI for webmin, which makes it easy to administer.

https://configserver.com/cp/csf.html
https://download.configserver.com/csf/install.txt

Install takes max 5 mns ;-)

My vote is for CSF, using it since 2+ years and works pretty well.

CSF+LFD for your firewall. That will not be enough for a DDoS attack though. Depends on the severity of a DDoS attack it can bring your network to a complete halt! Seek protection from your ISP or a third party provider.

I have used CSF and set it up using Block Permanently all negative ips by using the LFD configuration. This will block IPs that attempt to login incorrectly or exploit your SSH port amongst other ports and various software.

when you first get a sever 2 things you should do straight away.

1) install CSF ( its free) and configure it.
2) change the SSH port number

your SSH port cannot be exploited so easily if you do not use the default port 22.

it is the same with emails you should change the outgoing mail (SMTP) port from the default 25

For CentOS CSF always first choice and secondary option is APF. Its always recommended to use test mode in initial stage and read its readme file to configure firewall as per your requirement and then remove test mode.
