Cloudways should add DDoS protection service
DDoS is a common problem now, maybe Cloudways can add a DDoS Mitigation service and upgrade their Network hardware to secure against Level 3 DDoS attacks
After some difficulties with Cloudflare, we have spoken now with Sucuri (https://sucuri.net/). They offer malware removal, website firewall (providing DDoS protection among other things, requires DNS redirection to point to their firewalls) and site scanning (via local agent). All features independent (we can offer all or some).
We are thinking that a better approach to solving our customers problems when it comes to security and performance will be to offer (as add-ons) Sucuri (security centric and very focused on our most common apps) and MaxCDN (pure CDN focused on performance).
Any one has had experience with Sucuri? We have already tested (and in talks with them) and looks very promising.
Let us know thoughts on this (Sucuri + MaxCDN) approach (vs Cloudfront). We know this is well overdue and want to get it rolling.

Good idea. Would be very useful with paid and pro options.

We are considering partnering with Cloudflare and offer it as an application add-on (similar approach we have taken with New Relic and will take with MaxCDN).
At application tab level, you will have the option to enable it (Free or paid Pro version) or disable.
Let us know your thoughts.
Something like this would be perfect http://www.packetviper.com/products/features/ DDos is an increasing problem and something that if Cloudways doesn't soon do something about will mean we'll look for another host.
There is only so much cloudways can do since the servers are technically on DO/AWS.
