Rate Limiting with Grey Cloud (wildcard DNS)

I’ve searched all the documentation and there isn’t any mention of the Rate Limiting feature working only with orange cloud DNS entries or all entries including grey cloud (wildcard) entries.

We run a web app where each account has it’s own custom subdomain (so we use a wildcard record). Would rate limiting work on the wildcard requests or only ones that we push through the orange cloud?

Couldn’t find an answer to that but I’m assuming (hopefully I’m wrong) it only works for orange cloud requests.


:grey: means requests go straight to your server, bypassing Cloudflare altogether. Any of the proxy features will, therefore, not run. That includes rate limiting.

So, yes, your assumption is accurate.
