Using free Cloudflare for CDN and DDoS protection

Cloudflare, Inc. is an American web infrastructure and website security company, providing content delivery network services, DDoS mitigation, Internet security, and distributed domain name server services. 

It will cost you 0$ (DDOS, CDN) to 20$ or more and offer you the following advantages

DDoS is short for Distributed Denial of Service. DDoSis a type of DOS attack where multiple compromised systems, which are often infected with a Trojan, are used to target a single system causing a Denial of Service (DoS) attack.

A content delivery network (CDN) is a system of distributed servers (network) that deliver pages and other web content to a user, based on the geographic locations of the user, the origin of the webpage and the content delivery server.

A web application firewall (or WAF) filters, monitors, and blocks HTTP traffic to and from a web application. A WAF is differentiated from a regular firewall in that a WAF is able to filter the content of specific web applications while regular firewalls serve as a safety gate between servers. By inspecting HTTP traffic, it can prevent attacks stemming from web application security flaws, such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), file inclusion, and security misconfigurations.

How to

  1. Register at https://www.cloudflare.com/
  2. Activate 2FA with google authenficator is recommended!
  3. Change your nameservers: Pointing to Cloudflare’s nameservers is critical for activating your site successfully. Otherwise, Cloudflare is unable to manage your DNS and optimize your site.

 Registrars typically process nameserver updates within 24 hours. Once this process completes, Cloudflare confirms your site activation via email.
