What type of attacks are you referring to?
There are many different types and it really depends on the type of content you are operating on your VPS.

Is this a fully managed server? If not, then I recommend you hire a server admin that can harden and manage the VPS for you. Server hardening is a very broad subject and can NOT all be covered with a simple forum reply.

There are many tutorials and guides on the web you can Google and use to start learning yourself, if that's your intention.

The protection is best placed either on the Host Node where the guest OS is running, or if purely network based, at the perimeter of the network on which the Host Node is sitting.

You're probably better off looking for a fully managed provider to assist you. There are so many types of protections / configurations / tweaks all for different things.

No amount of replies to this thread will help. Good luck though!

He might be talking about DDoS attacks or maybe a virus attack on his server.

Firewall is the most important on any server. APF and BFD are the best.

For DDOS you need hardware protection provided by the service provider. No software protection will be sufficient.

The measures depends on what type of attack we are dealing with. Spamming, spoofing, DDOS.
1. DDOS: Firewall does a great deal to tackle this.
2. Spamming and spoofing: Mail server hardening has to be done.

What is actually important to this topic is how to increase the security of your VPS. This might be achieved by many steps.
1. The first thing that you should do is to disable all unnecessary scripts that are being used.
2. Also there is a necessity to secure your VPS by installing some kind of programs. RootKit Hunter or CHKRootKit would work just fine in this case.
3. Another suggestion would be securing configuration file (.conf) systems like host, sysctl and nsswitch
4. Furthermore, consider stopping the system resource intensive tools. One of them could be ClamAV or MRTH on the system.
