I’m not sure what you mean by “Encrypted IP addresses”. Your Firewall log shows IPv4 and IPv6 visitors.

You’ll need more specific information to be able to defend against a DDoS. Here are some tutorials:

Sdayman put excellent advice,

If you got big hits from like 5 or 6 countries and your target audience doesn’t require those countries, straight up put javascript or captcha challenge on them, that will cool it down.

Or buy rate-limiting, 0.05 cents for 10k reasonable requests is pretty decent.

Sorry to hear your site is under attack! You should do the following

  1. Activate IUAM (I’m Under Attack Mode) via the overview in your Cloudflare dashboard (using your Cloudflare account).
