Self-hosting

Self-hosting often works great, but it requires some effort to setup. It is more aimed at technical people.

We might create a guide for some self-hosting basics which don't require Cloudflare. IPFS may be worth consideration if performance is the main concern.

Apache is vulnerable to various low-bandwidth attacks. Use other server software such as Caddy, lighttpd or nginx.

Best way to protect your server from DDoS

  • Avoid any third-party service that can intercept HTTP traffic (like Cloudflare)
  • Install WAF on your loadbalancer.
  • Add rate-limit to your nftable(firewall) and server software.
    • Just drop the excessive connection.
