HI. I have a problem with my site when I activate the Cloudflare CDN. As soon as I change the two types of DNS records, namely (A and WWW) from DNS Only to Proxied, the site stops working properly. Pictures go black and videos do not play. I tried everything, even asking my Hosting, but nothing… No one can solve this problem.
I want to activate the CDN but without any such error. I hope I was clear. If not, ask me the questions you need, and I’ll be happy to answer you.
Thanks so much, Kyle.
Do the requests to those files return an error code.
Also keep in mind that serving lots of videos is against Cloudflare ToS, specifically section 2.8
Hello, and thank you so much for replying. What do you mean by section 2.8? Thanks.
No error. But what do you mean by section 2.8?
From Self-Serve Subscription Agreement
2.8 Limitation on Serving Non-HTML Content
The Services are offered primarily as a platform to cache and serve web pages and websites. Unless explicitly included as part of a Paid Service purchased by you, you agree to use the Services solely for the purpose of (i) serving web pages as viewed through a web browser or other functionally equivalent applications, including rendering Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) or other functional equivalents, and (ii) serving web APIs subject to the restrictions set forth in this Section 2.8. Use of the Services for serving video or a disproportionate percentage of pictures, audio files, or other non-HTML content is prohibited, unless purchased separately as part of a Paid Service or expressly allowed under our Supplemental Terms for a specific Service. If we determine you have breached this Section 2.8, we may immediately suspend or restrict your use of the Services, or limit End User access to certain of your resources through the Services.
Basically if you serve a lot of video / non-html content, Cloudflare will cut it off.
So you’re telling me that I should basically subscribe to Cloudflare so it doesn’t interrupt service with my site? I’m currently on a free account. I look forward to your response, Thanks anyway for the tips.
