I am using free plan of cloudflare. I want to know if reverse proxy is enabled in our plan or we have to subscribe for any special plans?
Cloudflare by default is a reverse proxy, although to prevent abuse it is limited to only domains you control.
This means that the server you’re trying to reverse proxy must respond to the HOST header of a domain or subdomain you control - for example, you can create a subdomain
a.example.com and point it to an server’s IP address that you own, but pointing it to a Google-owned IP address isn’t possible without Google giving an error message.
There is a “override HOST header” page rule which would allow you to reverse proxy any website without permission, but this is only available on enterprise plans. https://support.cloudflare.com/hc/en-us/articles/206652947-Using-Page-Rules-to-Re-Write-Host-Headers
