Hello, I am having issues proxying my website through cloudflare. I found a thread with the same issue but no answer so I am creating a new thread hoping to get any answers. I couldnt find a way to create a ticket or contact cloudflare in any other way and hoping creating a thread helps me with my issue.
I tired disabling ddos protection, rate limiting is disabled (as that is a paid service) but it still gets rate limited.
Nope, rate limiting is disabled, yet rate limits. I have no idea why it is doing this and whether there is an option to override this using some force-allow rules or something. Strange that cloudflare staff did not address this yet since there are several threads with the same issue unresolved.
No I never heard of Siteground. I use Portzilla to get a custom port onto the default one. Using a port after my domain name refused to connect - i presume clouflare only allows connections on port 80 and 443 - if that is not the case i would completely skip portzilla as i plan to use it within an iframe so having the port number at the end is no problem.
Unfortunately It is not hosted on a VPS rather a shared hosting. What I dont understand is that if portzilla triggers the rate limit, why do i get rate limited to other subdomains that are not managed by portzilla? If i go to the map and get rate limited, I stay rate limited even when i visit the root website.
