I'm seeking a professional to enhance the security of my Linux-based VPS, and also to optimize the servers and websites it hosts. Key Security Measures: - Firewall Configuration: I need an expert to set up a robust firewall to fortify the VPS against potential cyber threats and hacking attempts. - Regular Backups: Ensuring that there are consistent backups in place is critical. I need the freelancer to establish a reliable backup system that won't interrupt the server or website operation. - DDoS Protection: Given the nature of the content I host, DDoS protection is a must. I need someone to implement measures to mitigate and counter DDoS attacks effectively. Optimization: The freelancer should have experience in optimizing servers to boost performance and ensure smooth operation. This includes: - Improving the speed and responsiveness of the websites. - Ensuring that the server resources are utilized efficiently. - Identifying and resolving any bottlenecks that may be affecting performance. Skills and Experience: - Extensive experience in securing VPS, particularly Linux-based. - Proficiency in configuring firewalls and DDoS protection systems. - Prior experience in setting up regular, automated backups. - Deep understanding of server optimization techniques. - Familiarity with e-commerce, blog/news, and portfolio websites. - Proven track record of optimizing websites for speed and performance. I'm looking for someone who can handle both the security and optimization aspects effectively, with a keen eye for detail and a proactive approach to problem-solving.
