Tracking subdomains and proxying?

Hi there :slight_smile:

I had Apollo.io ask me to set up a tracking subdomain - I was just wondering if I’ve got a CNAME record from that subdomain to their domain, do I have to be concerned about DDOS on that subdomain (so would I want to proxy it in the DNS settings?)

Thanks,

Nick

I think you can prepare better than doing nothing to prevent the DDoS. Proxy through Cloudflare doesn’t only help you hide your IP address but also give you a lot of benefits of using Cloudflare such as CDN, WAF etc.

Some useful resources:

Hi, and thanks for the reply :slight_smile:

It was more the subdomain that’s aliased to a 3rd party I was wondering about (I agree, and use a lot of those features on my domain). The traffic would never hit my server, right? So if I’ve got this right none of those features would benefit me?

Thanks,

Nick
