Does Cloudflare provide free DDoS protection for my Minecraft server?

I’m planning on switching my Minecraft server to be hosted locally on my computer but realize that I don’t know what the heck DDoS protection is and how to get it. Does Cloudflare provide it? If so, thank the Cloudflare lords.

someone please help i need to know this before i make my server :frowning:

You can only use Cloudflare’s Spectrum if you want DDOS protection for Minecraft.
Spectrum is only available to paid plans. The pro plan comes with 5GB of free bandwidth included, and the business plan 10GB, after that you’ll have to pay $1 per gigabyte, as explained at https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/360041721872.

so its not free :frowning:
