Never heard of Ampnodes, I'll have to look that one up. I know digital ocean has some basic level of protection but I wouldn't rely on it. They can easly nullroute (block your IP) in case of an attack or suspend your server if you get many abuse complaints. I'm not saying DO is bad but in my opinion there's more stable alternatives. I would recommend scaleway.com although they currently are not having a lot of servers due to many customers, too order you need an invite.

But since you're looking for ddos protection I wouldn't recommend any of those above. Consider using any OVH or Voxility based network, or both if you want that. So check out any of these: http://ovh.com (Requires ID/Passoport and Bankstatement/Electrical bill verification to prevent fraud. If you don't want this, look for a reseller) http://hosteasy.com (Uses voxility. This one is my favorite, they do verifications too but only randomly for some customers. So be prepared) http://blazingfast.io (Uses blazingfast combined with another third party. More privacy friendly in the sense that they don't really do need verification. But they can be a hazzle to deal with sometimes.)
I think I wasn't very clear with my post. My bad, I'm not looking for ddos protection, I'm looking to make ddos protection and sell it to clients.

You don't just "make ddos protection." First thing is you need to have beefy backend ports. You would need to work with the Datacenter you choose to colo with, and install stuff like a routing system from juniper, or an Arbor scrubber (which are very expensive..) Also you would need to get test traffic and setup firewall rules for stuff like Layer 3-4, and 7.
For attacks like L7 that drain resources you need to have beefy servers to spread out the attacks to handle it. 
Or you can get remote protection by peering from a location that has this equipment already. Like OVH, Staminus, Voxility, ect.

Hope this answers your question.
