Hello I have been attacked by someone trying to take down my website and he successfully did even though my website is going through cloudflare and it’s a wordpress website, my hosting provider said it is a layer 7 ddos, is there a way to defend myself because I am hurting the whole hosting server and should I also upgrade to a VPS if that helps? I am new to having my website secured and I am lost!
You can do this in Firewall -> Settings (near the top right)
Will that actually help with layer 7 ddos?
Yes, it will
On top of that, Cloudflare will automatically block layer 7 ddos attacks for you
I thought of upgrading because I don’t want a challenge for all users, I want my website to be normal but the attack to be mitigated
Then use this information to create a firewall rule
