    Default Cloudfare + Wordfence for DDOS protection?

    I've been doing some research, and found a on site plugin for WordPress that prevents ddos attacks, called wordfence.

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/

    For the first few months could I prevent DDOS attacks by using both the free version of cloud fare in addition to wordfence on my site? Im getting a entry level VPS, so I'm worried about DDOS attacks taking my site down to quickly.

    I doubt it. Cloudflare didn't do a think when I was being attacked. The two hosting companies that appeared to be the best were Staminus and Blacklotus. I used Staminus because they were cheaper. They got my site back up almost immediately.

    Does Staminus allow sites with adult content?

    I'm not sure. I know Blacklotus was hosting isanyoneup.com so they do. I'd assume Staminus does as well.


    Why are you worried about getting ddosed?
