My current PHP shared hosting limits my language options, so I'm considering switching to cloud hosting for more flexibility with Node.JS, Go, Elixir, Rust, Scala, etc. However, I have two concerns: how do I protect against attacks and will using a cloud VPS require me to manage secure administration and be billed for DDoS attacks?

In shared hosting, administrators configure PHP, web servers, and OS updates to ensure security and may not charge for sudden attendance spikes. With a cloud VPS, I worry about having to manage secure administration and being charged for resource overspending during a DDoS attack.

If you have experience or thoughts on these issues, please share. Thanks!


In most cases, hosting for resources is pricier than VDS and pricing for VDS is calculated differently. With VDS, hosts can set everything up for you and you can log in like a regular shared host. However, you have the option to score 100% from the beginning if you want to try doing it yourself.

pricing of hosting and VDS can vary based on your specific needs and usage. Be sure to do your research and consider all factors before making a decision.


It's possible to establish resource limits or spending caps for alerts via email when you exceed a certain threshold, like $500. Most sellers who provide resources also offer one of these features for payment.

Resource limits and spending caps are useful features for controlling costs and avoiding unexpected bills. It's important to consider your needs and budget when setting these limits to ensure adequate resources without overspending.
