Why pay for anti-ddos when cloudflare has a unmetered free plan?

Just curious why anyone would pay for extra anti-ddos protection? Is there a catch with the cloudflare free plan?

  • Cloudsflare is only http/https unless you’re an enterprise customer.

    This also includes wildcard dns entries.

  • Could you please tell me what that means?

    Cloudflare only protects Layer 7 (HTTP/HTTPS 80/443).

    No other ports like MC server 25565/UDP or CS:GO 27015/TCP.

  • You should pay out of principle.

    I wonder how game server anti-ddos works. As far as i know, the "checking your browser" is anti-ddos savety measure. That cant work with game servers.

    It doesn't.

  • Because, Cloudflare free sucks and its just for web applications.

  • You ALWAYS pay. We've learned that with Google, facebook and others. Sometimes the price you pay is that you and your data are the real product. Ples "free" often means badly reduced rights.

    So the real question is HOW and how much you are willing to pay and what you get for it.

    Thanks no.

    Actually CF has wildcard DNS :p but it wont proxy through CDN, must pay for it.

    If you read into the context, I just say that they don't protect wildcard dns entries against ddos attacks, I have never said that they don't support them.

  • If you're going for paid plan, it would be better to use Sucuri.

    CloudFlare Pro plan costs $240/year

    Sucuri’s basic plan $199/year

    I like what she said, not what it means.
