I'm planning to hire a VPS server but unfortunately, it is going to be unmanaged.
CentOS will be already installed on it.
Although, firewall settings and other configurations to keep the VPS server Secure and Safe will need to be configured. Security, Performance, Safety, Uptime are the key configuration areas. Any ideas you can bring for the better configuration will be great.
I need someone with these skills and someone who has been doing this on a regular basis. (in other words, someone who knows what he is doing when he'll configure my VPS.
I don't want to be in a situation where site goes down or some data loss or hacks because of the misconfigurations of the server.
By the way, I'll have root access for the VPS server.
