I am recommending Cloudflare to a customer and would like some information I’m not finding anywhere on the site. They have a website that serves ~10M requests per day for a total of ~4TB of bytes outgoing. Bytes incoming are minimal. The customer would like to take advantage of caching 24x7, and possibly rate limiting during certain expected high-load situations. I have tested a test version of the site and confirmed that with a “Cache Everything” Page Rule that I am able to proxy through Cloudflare and cf-cache-status header reports some hits. So, I’m fairly confident Cloudflare will work, but am concerned about any possible hidden costs I’m not considering. Specifically:
- Are there any limits to the number of requests and total bytes proxied in any of the plans?
- Are there any limits to the number of requests and total bytes cached in any of the plans?
- In my math, rate limiting for 10M requests per day would cost ~$49.95 per day, assuming all 10M requests were not limited. Is this correct?
