    Hi,
    I have started rot work with coders and the recommended a special dedicated server for my tool. Now I have ordered the server, but would like to hire someone to set it up:
    This includes setting up:

    • sshd
    • proftpd
    • memcached
    • php-fpm
    • apcu
    • postfix
    • mariadb / mysql
    • nginx
    • iptables (firewall)
    • webmin
    • ftppassd
    • Root login will be disabled, a firewall set-up, and all none essential services/ports will be disabled.
      Will set-up nginx to host two sites on two ips.
      Are you capable to do such and how much will it cost ?
      Cheers

    Just a tip. I know how to install all of them, but I am not really capable or know how to configure it properly. So there might be people like that who looks on google to install stuffs and leave you with some security holes because of the improper configuration.

    Please take extra care when you select your guy.

    Here are few security stuff you might want to look into.

    A dedicated server with these modules installed should handle over five thousand concurrent requests per second easily. I hope your host offer DDOS filtering, you will be attracting a lot of haters if you have a high traffic.

    Also, I suggest you install CSF firewall and only open the ports you need. It's easier to configure than messing with iptables.

    Make sure memcached and mysql/mariadb are only listening on your localhost ip, unless you have load balancing or you need to host the db on a different server.

    Nginx can be tricky, make sure it doesn't serve hidden files or log files.

    Make sure your webmin is only accessed through https.

    Also note that ftp is insecure by default, as all the details are sent in plain text. You may want to run ftp over ssl (FTPS), or use SFTP/SCP.
    And don't forget to turn anonymous login off for ftp.
