We maybe want to use Cloudflare, but I don’t know if this is the solution for our problem. Maybe you can tell me if the solution you are offering is a fix for our problem.
We’ve got a WordPress blog (blog.our-blog.nl) that is shown at our website (www.our-site.nl/blog) via a reversed proxy. Now as you probably already know, WordPress has an admin area where you can log on with username and password. Now bots are trying to log in all the time, and fail2ban that is on our hosting provider, will block our ip-address. Because it is a reversed proxy every request is made from the ip-address of our reverserd proxy. So nobody can enter the site anymore because they are all being blocked.
Would it help if we added Cloudflare between the reversed proxy and the WordPress blog?
Also, we have multiple blogs for whole Benelux, so we need this configuration for more sites. Is that also possible?
