Yes you can.

Also, using the WAF Managed Rules on a Pro plan, you can add an exception for some particular or all Managed Rules to not trigger it / run it on a sub-domain.


Furthermore, you can enable or disable the WAF completly, or any other particular settings available to you depending on the Plan type via Page Rules, for a specific hostname or URI path.

For example, be it like enable the WAF only on naked-domain and disable it on, or enable Rocket Loader on sub only and disable on naked-domain, and so on. Or like disable caching and Security on some file or directory path, etc.

Other option would be, if you’d like to use Cloudflare only for your sub-domain, then either using some higher paid plan like Business or Enterprise.

Otherwise, you can use SSL for SaaS which could do it only on your sub-domain, I think.


Thanks a lot
