I would never allow users to connect directly to a cloud server, since cloud servers from good providers such as AWS or Google, do not come with DDoS Protection. So, I have to build a protection.
Sometime ago I read a decent review about “DDoS Protected VPS Providers” on LowEndTalk (really, on LET):
It’s indeed very accurate based on my experience so far. Today I trust 3 providers for my SSH/SFTP/MySQL tunnels: LunaNode from Montreal (OVH), RamNode from Atlanta (Staminus) and QuadraNet from Miami (In-House).
Recently I had a problem with a customer trying to remove a addon domain on cPanel. Every time he tries to remove, he got different error messages, like “subdomain ‘shop.example.com’ does not exist for user ‘client’”.
Since cPanel couldn’t do it by itself, I went to the documentation to find where the user configurations are located. According to the documentation, the files are store in /var/cpanel.
