Hi any advice and help appreciated, new to this
We started getting DDOS attacks on our site.
The guys hosting it came to us with the problem it was affecting other services on their server.
We stopped this by only allowing UK traffic to our site till the attack stopped.
I signed up to cloudflare Pro our site loads better and we are getting better loading time rating etc well happy all is good no attacks!.
Until today the host server has the same issue back again, under attack. ground to a halt, and affecting all their other services. Our site is the cause its under attack.
Ive turned on under attack mode.
blocked country china in firewall rules (this is where all the traffic seems to be coming)
now blocked united states fire wall rule (all the traffic is now coming from here now)
any advice on what else can need to do? not sure why our site keeps getting attacked every few months?
I though cloudflare would stop this? or am I doing it wrong?
edit: as our site is still taking ages to load, the testing your browser page takes a long time
Thanks for any help
