I’m using the free plan of Cloudflare to connect my domain with a linode kubernetes backend. I’m hosting a web game, and through cloudflare my speeds are random: sometimes good, and at other times too slow to maintain a websocket connection. E.g.: I can have two different tabs open simultaneously in different browsers, and one connection is good, while the other keeps dropping / is severely throttled. Which browsers work or how many connections are good is random
I’m new to cloudflare but am assuming this has something to do with where the traffic is being routed: when connecting my domain directly to the backend or using the public ip, my connection is healthy.
Is there more information about / other people who resolved this issue? Are the nameservers / dns allotted on the free plan only appropriate for static sites? I’ve searched through the internet and can’t find anything conclusive
