This installer will install hosting-firewall.tpl (nginx template) that will:
  • allow 1 http request per second per IP address (sent to your server, more precisely to your PHP-FPM)
  • allow 2 parallel http connections per IP address (sent to your PHP-FPM)
  • allow burst for 7 additional http requests (they will enter queue), first 3 will be processed immediately, 4 others will processed each request each second (so this will handle natural peaks that CMS can generate to itself)
  • if client fills allowed queue, additional requests will be denied
Generally, this nginx template will prevent bad bots to run hundreds parallel http requests against your site, which will probably cause denial-of-service on your server.

There are also 3 additional templates, with larger limit values (for example: 2 req/sec, 14 allowed requests in queue, 7 burst, 8 parallel connections).
